As far as I am concerned, we only lost Kovy and Clarkie
 
Added Jagr, Clowe, Ryder, Schneider, Olesz....significant upgrade overall IMHO


Forgot about Olesz. I agree though. Should be an upgrade especially when you consider how much the Devils relied on Kovy (good or bad). Remember how much ice time he got when he first arrived? Point is I think the offense will look significantly different than they did last year, hopefully for the better.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello on Jaromir Jagr report: "It's all rumors right now. If we have anything to report, we'll do that."

 

LMAO watch Lou void the contract before it's even signed.

I think we are done for now. Don't see us adding Brunner.

WE will be a contender

 

I hope you are right.   But this a band-aid and not a good long term strategy in building a winner.

It is a nice addition for a last push for Marty

 

 

I think it can help.  It's not like this was Lou's only offseason move.  He addressed the goaltending situation for the long term future, and added a couple of other good forwards in Clowe and Ryder.   Add the Olesz move and a few of the kids that will make the big club out of camp...I am excited

I don't think there's any money left for Brunner at this point since Henrique isn't announced yet.  How much do we have remaining at this point, 3m?

 

Seems to me that to sign a Brunner, you'd need to jettison another D like Sal/Volch, but as has been said countless times on this board, those are not attractive options to other teams, so pipe dream.

At this stage of his career, can we still go with the "Mario Jr" anagram on his first name?

 

Or do we have to downgrade it to something like "Mr Irajo"?

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

NJ has 10 million in cap space right now, without including Jagr.  So there is room for Henrique, Jagr, and another good player, most likely.

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.

According to Capgeek, we have $10,129,166 left. If Jagr got $3.5, that's $6,629,166 left. Say Henrique signs for $2-2.5M, we really have around $4,129,166-4,629,166. Plenty to sign one more guy. Not sure if it happens though. Where would another wing fit in the lineup?

OFC this is a band aid and it doesn't impact long term strategy since it is only 1 year.  Unless Lou can rob another team, the only thing he can do is band-aids at the moment. 

 

With limited ice time other than PP, we'll see what Jagr can give us.  Expectations should not be high.

We signed him just so Brodeur is no longer the oldest guy on the team...
