I'd love to see the Devils pick up a guy like Hemsky. I feel like as much as we need help at center, we desperately need help at wing after losing Parise, Kovy and Clarkson. It showed this year.

Stasny's dad played here right? Or am I incorrect?

 

Yup.  Long time ago, but apparently it didn't end on the best of terms.

Get rid of Salvador and volchenkov, sign Stasny to a long term deal and sign Brian Gionta to a 2 year Lou-like deal with a low-ish cap hit, get rid of Zubrus and re-up Schneider.

I'll jizz myself to sleep.

Yeah MB, Peter Stastny played here in the early 90's for a couple years.


In fact I used to work with a dude who went to elementary school with Paul in Verona.

Stasny would be perfect, providing he didn't kill our cap.

Probably will get flak for saying to bring back Gionta but I agree. I checked out his advanced stats a while ago in comparison to Zubrus earlier this year and he blew him away. No one would be expecting him to score 40 goals probably not even 20. But I like the idea of gionta on a short deal

Had to do with Herb Brooks more than the Devils (publicly called Stastny's contract a heist)...Brooks was gone after one season.

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?

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.

We will get cap relief from no Marty or Jagr.

Didn't know Vrbata was a UFA. That's the guy they need. Well at least one of the 2 they need.

Stastny isn't a 30 goal scorer, and never was. I'd take him in a heart beat, but 7 million, did I hear for a low 20 scorer, from a team that's not offensively challenged like us.

Came over at the deadline for defenseman Craig Wolanin in 1990.  Wolanin was apparently pissed...it was one of those deals that didn't get done until after the deadline had passed, so he went to practice thinking he was still a Devil, but was told shortly after he skated onto the practice rink. 

 

Sadly, Stastny was on the decline pretty quickly by the time he got here...his Devils numbers don't look too bad until you realize they came during Live Puck, and especially when you compare them to his in-his-prime numbers.  Once he hit 32, he was no longer the same player.

Callahan would be a NIGHTMARE[quote]

No he wouldnt. Top player that would fit our system and like I said, would automatically become our best player the second he walks in the door. And that "hes only got a few years left" is bullsh!t. No validity behind it whatsoever. That what the sour grapes people tried saying about parise and theres ZERO evidence that holding true.

GO. GET. CALLY.

Would love to see the Devils go after Vrbata. Sniper who shoots a ton and is very durable. Just wish he was a LW so he could be the missing piece on the Jagr/Zajac line. He's definitely a skill player that the Devils sorely need.

Absolutely not, and he would not be our best player.

Yep, I remember that trade (granted I was only in 5th grade at the time, but by this time I had already become a certified Devils fanatic lol). I remember feeling bad for Wolanin having to go to Quebec because of how bad they were.

If Callahan is your best player, you are not going to win many games.  He is not a top player, and he never really was, and now he's on the decline.  In addition, since GMs love thinking players like Callahan are top players, he will be massively overpaid.  

 

Parise's decline will begin - he still hasn't matched his numbers from 08-09 and 09-10.  He's holding up better than I thought he would so far, but he's only played 100 games so far.  Talk to me when he's played 300.
