 Yeah, we need a GM making moves for that to happen...

I KILLED Lou for not forfeiting the pick right after we went to the Finals.   I did say unless he has insider information that we will get the pick back somehow...

 

He HAD to have known there was a good chance the pick would be coming back, otherwise it would have been absurd to NOT forfeit our 2012 pick

I don't know, better than nothing I suppose. We'll draft a kid who may get a chance to play for the next coach. Still would rather have thrown Matteau back in the pond and taken this year's possible top 10 pick.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

We know you don't like Lou, but you can't pretend the owners did this on their own and that it had nothing to do with him. The league wanting to not punish new owners makes sense, but Lou clearly had a big hand in this.

You mean the GM that brought Jagr and Schneider to the Devils before the start of this season? Honestly, where in the rankings do you think the Devils would be today if those two acquisitions were not made by Lou? Also, I have no issue with Lou making only minor changes to our roster this past week. First, the devils are on the cusp of making the playoffs and there is no need to 'shake things up' for the sake of making things exciting. Did we need a scorer? Sure, but at what cost? The devils are not a a CUP team, and would not be a cup team no matter who they acquired in Ruutu's place. What is the point of Lou shipping picks and prospects for a short term rental? At least a few of these guys will be testing the market this summer and if the price (and fit) is right, Lou will acquire them for mere salary. Side note: I like what Ruutu brings as far as size and grit. The devils play a slower game along the baord and need guys who can protect the puck and throw their body around on the forecheck. Ruutu will do just that. That having been said, only time will tell if he will earn his $ (see past inuries), but that can be said about anyone. I am keeping my fingers crossed that he and Clowe stay healthy.

No one is pretending that Lou didn't have anything to do with it, but the owners were the ones who initiated it and followed it through. I don't know what the problem is with giving them credit where credit is due.

I agree -- they are not intimidated.  But they are practical. I've settled many a case with those very same lawyers at Proskauer, Skadden and the like.  And they don't turn down a reasonable deal that provides their clients with a satisfactory resolution and the certainty that goes with it.

 

And A-Rod had no case -- legally or factually.  Totally different situation.

 

And to the rest of the board -- you're welcome for the copper wire.

:clap2:  Great to see you again smelly. :)
