Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

I'll guess 4 years 13 million.

Edit:

$24 million over 6 years.

That would make it awfully similar to ones Zajac and Parise had. I think they both were around $3.33M before getting their raises.

Adam Henrique's new deal is $24-million over six years. Interesting comparable with Kadri having similar NHL experience.

A bit pricey but it will look positively cheap in 4 years when Henrique would have been going UFA.  It's much better than getting a bridge contract but I would've liked to have seen either another year or a bit lower AAV.

Nothing about Henrique right now says $4 million per year player to me.  Lou took a bit of a gamble here.  Definitely falls under the "Can't really judge this one for a while" category.

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.

Pricey, but Lou paid for the 2(?) UFA years. I hope he earns it.

Wow. Surprised he got 4 a year, I was thinking something in the range of 4/12. But I'm not complaining. It 'aint my money and we locked up one of our young cornerstones for the foreseeable future. Color me happy.

All depends on whether it hamstrings you from making other moves you otherwise would make.  With the cap set to go up dramatically after this year, and only a few players currently on the roster that could plausibly be in a position to demand significant raises in the next few years (Larsson, Josefson, Loktionov and Schneider), I don't see this as an issue.

The cap is artificially low at the moment and the Devils only have one forward signed past 2015-16.  Henrique would've been UFA in 2017 - cap figures to be at least $75M by then, probably closer to $80M - if it's $80M, a $4m Henrique is equal to a 2.8M player under a 56M cap (i.e. what the NHL had in 2008-09 and 2009-10).  It's a risk worth taking.

No issue with the contract, especially since it buys a few UFA years at what will eventually be a "low" salary.
