Not the worst stop-gap option, and the contract itself is fair.  Hopefully we can get 50-60 points out of Jagr and, in the wirst case scenario, he can bring back a high draft pick at hte trade deadline if we are out of playoff contention.

 

I'm happy that they aren't forced to rush a young guy like Boucher up to fill a hole.  Plus, it gives Matteau time to mature and develop in the AHL for a season, which he needs IMO.

Wow look at all those RFAs/UFAs for next offseason. It'll be a busy summer a year from now, too.

Next offseason is a crossraods for this organization.  Could be an offseason where we have a ton of cap space and cash to spend on some big name FA's, or one where we begin the transition with the younger players (which will likely lead us to the Connor McDavid sweepstakes, rather than a chase for the Cup).

 

At some point, this team needs to get younger and faster.  With Brodeur likely gone, I personally think that next offseason is the beginning of the full rebuild of this roster.

Elias-Zajac-Ryder Henrique-Loktionov-Jagr Clowe-Josefson-Zubrus Olesz-Carter-Bernier Gionta, Barch I understand it might not be as likely now, but I still want Brunner. Would give us serious depth.

Supposedly, the guys on Sirius XM ruined the Jagr conference call. Their feed was playing over the line while he was trying to talk over them, he had to practically scream and eventually, the conference call was ended (presumably by his agent).

$2 million in base salary on Jagr's 1-year contract with Devils. Additional potential $2 million in games played bonuses.

 

 

I like this base contract, but giving him incentive to play hurt and potentially make him useless before the playoffs (since he doesn't get paid via contract for this) is questionable.

Schneider's not sticking around for a full rebuild, and I don't think Lou gave up a 9th-overall pick for a two-year rental.  For better or for worse, I think this team (especially as long as Lou's here) is going to try to stay in contention and avoid a crash-and-burn, whatever it takes.  Doesn't mean a crash-and-burn won't or can't happen, but will be a 2010-11 unforeseen kind of event...not by design.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Jaromir Jagr gets a $250,000 bonus for every five games played from 10 to 45. That makes up $2M in bonuses from #NJDevils.

They really kick in pretty easily.  Unless he suffers a major injury that keeps him out half the season, then he won't have to push himself through minor injuries that he shouldn't play through.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Good, even if they keep him out of back-to-backs to keep Jagr fresh, it won't affect the bonuses if he plays 60-65 games.  Keeps Jagr happy, I guess.

So this is really a way to defer the cap hit until next season then, right?

Not really. It's more to add cap flexibility. The CAN defer money to next season now, if it makes sense, but I think it's more likely the Devils are under the cap including bonuses this season.

No, it's a way to ensure that you get your money's worth.  I don't foresee NJ being over the cap.

They can defer $3.3 million of cap money related to bonuses to next year if need be:

 

$2 mil Jagr

$1 mil Zidlicky

$300k Olesz

 

If all three cap hits are taken this year, then technically we still have about $5 million left under the cap this year to sign Henrique (and any other moves).

It would be nice if Jagr could do for Henrique what he did for Giroux, I definitely think that'll be a pairing for most of the season. Henrique is a smart hockey player and a natural goal scorer, he does the little things right. Jagr is a smart player who knows how to pass/make plays. I think that would be a good combination.

Roster is getting crowded. I wonder if this means the end of Gionta in NJ? I know the coaches love him but he's on a 2 way deal this year unlike Tedenby and Barch.

Chances are that Lou decided to go with Jagr over Brunner because Jagr was the 'safer' choice.  I'm thinking that Lou would rather look at shorter term deals, because Brunner asked for too long and maybe too much.  Brunner could very well be available next year or head back to Die Schweiz. 

To add, it will be very interesting if we have a top line of Elias-Henrique-Jagr.  The Czech factor on this team is very cool.  I read on NHL.com that Jagr and Elias are the 1st and 2nd career high scoring Czech forwards in the league.  Plus Jagr didn't have a terrible year last year.

I guess I'm in the minority around here on this one. Jagr is old, holds on to the puck too long and gets tired quickly -- or at least that's how it looked to me once he landed with the B's last season.

 

I hope it works out for us, but I'm skeptical.

I don't think they'll let the 500-600k difference between Gionta in the minors and Tedenby/Barch in the minors factor in to what they do rosterwise, not considering how they're already going to be close to a cap celing team anyway.
