Yeah, $6m/7 years is hardly "breaking the bank" in this day and age, for a 28 year old potential (if not, very close to it now) elite goaltender...

 

Money very well spent, and Lou knows this. I was expecting (and would've been fine with) even more money/term.

We still don't know if any of the above is true (though if it is, yeah, I think it's a fair deal for sure...a mild gamble maybe, but one I'd be willing to make).

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.

The whole article sounds like a bunch of guessing. I mean, yes if they are close to a new deal...those numbers are believable, but...

 

 

The cap hit I’ve heard is $6 million per season.

The term I’ve heard is seven years.

I'd give him 6.5 if he'd be willing to go from 7 years to 6 years.

Exercise in futility - what would it take to get Evander Kane?  I realize many are opposed to the idea in general, but what do we think Jets would want back?  I reckon a good roster player at least (ie, someone of actual value).

 

Does Henrique+Ryder+Prospect or Pick get it done?

Probably start with Henrique, throw in one of the young D, another roster player and next year's 1st.

So..pass. I'd love Ekane on the Devils but it ain't happening.

Henrique, 2015 1st, Gelinas/Larsson, and a veteran (Jagr, Ryder, Brunner).  It just doesn't make sense to make a trade like that to blow up this team.  If Winnipeg is forced into a move by Kane not re-signing when he has one year left on his deal, that's when teams can give up a little less for him, but not much less really.

Winnipeg might want Zajac involved in a trade for Kane. Only reason I say that though is because he's from there. I don't really know their needs.

A headcase who's never approached a PPG pace, and no long term contract? I don't see Kane being THAT valuable. Larsson, Ryder, 1st, and forward prospect of their choice would be a pretty damn good package for them to consider. Asking for Henrique is madness, as Kane is not better enough to trade 3 significant other pieces compared to Henrique

Lou keeps talking about wanting Carter back, and the feeling seems mutual. It be weird for the Devils to trade a forward to clear room for Carter, Really hoping that isn't the case.

 

No clue what happened there. Maybe Carter's agent overvalued his client, thus avoiding a signing in day 1 with the Devils, and now they are stuck waiting.

I think that's what they are doing.  While it's not a very good move, it will save money.  I'd like to get Gelinas signed to a 3 year deal if that does happen.

Yeah looks like he does. I know he likes it here and I doubt Lou would ever ask him to waive it which is cool with me because I like people who like to play here.

The one deal that was rumored by someone half-way credible was Marchand for Kane.  The package you suggest would be absolute lunacy.  We'd be giving up a lot more than Dallas gave up for a much better player in Seguin.  And Boston has basically got lucky in that deal as Reilly Smith was something of a throw-in at the time.

I just hate a situation where an offensive player or two gets hurt and instead of sliding a Ryder or a Brunner in there you now move up Bernier or Zubrus.

 

I also really hate the idea of CBGB reuniting and then having Zubrus playing 3rd line or better minutes all season.
