Agreed. This team is filled with B squaders and some of them are over payed.
Is what it is.
We lost our super stars, those days are gone.

You read through this thread and then decided to pat the OP's back. So glad you're here to show us how useless Zubrus is, despite him being fantastic along the boards and playing our system to a T. He's paid fine for what he does. He's a 2/3 line tweener getting paid $3.1M, good for 6th highest on the team, 7th if you assume Jagr plays 40+ games and gets the extra $2M bonus.

Zajac, our top center in the first year of his deal(because bitching about not getting top line production was really stupid until 4 games ago and still is because it's only been 4 games). He's also an elite faceoff man and an elite defensive forward.

Zidlicky, who despite his defensive shortcomings, is the only guy on D who can push the play up ice well or shoot the puck for that matter or not suck at running the point on the PP. Top it off, we pay him less than what we pay Volch. $3M unless he hits the games played threshold for his $1M bonus. I forget what the threshold is. Maybe someone can chime in. He's even getting less than Sal before his bonus.

But yeah, ya know, they're the B-Squad.

Also, OVERPAID, with an I, not a YE. It's also not two words. You learn how to spell at the Kwik-Mart? Same place you learned all about hockey I guess.

I've learned to not even respond to BigZ's posts. Legit don't think he's ever said a good thing about the Devils. If the team goes on a winning streak I guarantee he'll disappear again until the next rough stretch.

GTFO, Zubrus does his job, and does it damn well. The guy does everything for this team. We need a Zidlicky on this team. Zajac has been playing fine but is just a offensive blackhole at the moment.

 

The problem is defensive and team breakdowns in the critical moments. Volch and Harrold should not be playing over Fayne and Larsson.

Troll to the nth degree. Fitting for the thread title though

Zidlicky produces too much offense from our blue line to get rid of him.  He's too valuable to this team.

hes the most offensive defensemen the team has ... but at the same time he does create a lot of hazards.. gotta take some and give some to each their own i guess

I'll take it.  Blueline offense is greatly needed for this team.

personally dude i do like zid... he drives the puck right up to the net and really does create a lot fo good chances. ... but i just hope the team gets their sh!t together its getting to be a bit much now. Theyre going to end up digging themselves a real bad hole thats going to be a big bitch to get out of later on.

Greene hasn't been bad, but he needs to be better.

Larsson has been bad, and certainly needs to be better.

Fayne just needs to play.

 

Zidlicky, Volchenkov, and Salvador imo have actually been pretty good.  That is the problem.  When your bottom 3 defensemen are playing better than your top 3 defensemen, there is a huge problem.
