They both suck and both shouldn't be here. The honeymoon should have ended after the 2012 playoffs

 

I tend to agree with this. CBGB had a nice run, but its time for it to die. I'd rather have Carter than Bernier or Gionta though.

I'll be pissed if Carter goes to the Rangers, he was the best part of CBGB and we ended up with the other 2?  :doh1:  I'd can't imagine Bernier will be playing in the NHL with all these forwards we have.  You can count on one of Brunner or Ryder to be gone, but it depends on who you'd rather take a risk on.  Speedy Gonzales(Ryder) or "Can't even finish on his homework" Brunner. 

Overall happy with the moves made so far.  I'll miss Fayne, but I'll get over it, I'm a Devils fan :devil:  and I can't even get my day started until we've lost a quality player to free agency.  Havlat could catch fire playing with Elias if he can stay healthy.  Hopefully Carter doesn't sign with the Rags and we can pick up this Sekac character on an entry deal.  As of today, we have a lot of forwards and even if we only drop one of them during the offseason, we'll be looking at a pretty deep forward group.

Sekac is gone. He signed with the Habs.

I don't think the Rags will sign Carter. Just a gut feeling. Then again, I thought Lou was signing Brian Gionta so there goes my part-time job as psychic reader.

#RedWings have re-signed D Kyle Quincey for two years at $4.25M average. This after rejections from Niskanen, Boyle, Robidas,

 

Haha. No one wants to go to Detwat anymore.

Maybe Iginla?

 

Looks like I nailed that one. Tampa needed another top 4 defenseman. Stralman was the perfect fit. Once they cleared space, it was pretty obvious. Tampa has guys who can score. They needed to upgrade their back end. They added a quality top 4 for market value. Callahan apparently was a factor in bringing him and Boyle there.

They're not signing him. Moore re-signed for 2 years, $3 million. It's not even a need. They wasted $1.45 million on Tanner Glass. A mystifying move when afterwards Boyle took a discount to go to Tampa. Besides, they need to save for Brassard, Kreider, Zuccarello and J. Moore.

 

Kinda surprised Fayne wound up in Edmonton. But they needed D. Five years for Pouliot. Gee wiz.

The Rangers got worse today. That's a major plus.

 

Truth. But I don't feel too bad when no one else in the division improved. I like what the Jackets did picking up Hartnell.

yep, Carter should of stayed and bid farewell to Bernier & Gionta... You've gotta scratch your head and  say, "there we go again, another Lou misfit move"

If he can't get Carter back, what are the thoughts on someone like Jay McClement? He can kill penalties and come fairly cheap as well...

Contracts aside, you genuinely don't believe the Devils improved with the addition of Cammy (and 20 games of Havlat)? Even more importantly, with the likely subtraction of Brodeuer?

Lamoriello pretty much gives his feeling about Gio's performance & role vs. Bernier:

 

"Stephen Gionta plays any role. He's like that sixth player on a basketball team. So it was a no-brainer to bring him back," the GM said. "Steve Bernier certainly did not have a good year.  We brought him back in an entry-level situation to resurrect his career and see how it goes."

Sure sounds like they will have no problem sending him to Albany through waivers if he can't win a roster spot in camp.

That basketball analogy made no sense. And Gio can not play any role. Keep thinking that Lou and Pete.

risky. There's no way CBJ doesn't match any offer, especially what we'd be able to afford. We'd be more successful getting him in a trade..
