It shows how tenuous the game is in terms of player longevity, and how dangerous long-term contracts are these days. Game's getting faster and maybe we'll look back in 20 years and say more grueling too. CBA limiting contract terms to 7-8 years is one of the best things to happen to the league. Ask the Rangers (and Minnesota in a few years)...

I agree. It's almost like you want to yell "sign him!" but then you realize getting Dany Heatley does not mean 'getting Dany Heatley'.

Hmm, Mike Rupp is available? That sounds like a Lou-esque signing to me, perhaps in lieu of Carter.

Why are people wanting Steve Ott? I don't think he is very good. Not sure what people are thinking he brings to the table besides the usual intangibles (toughness, an edge to his game, etc).

Couldn't agree more about the bolded.  It always cracks me up how it's the GMs or their franchises who can't ever control themselves (which is what leads to the absurd 10+ year contracts to begin with), but then it winds up being on the players to somehow correct it later.

 

And yeah, it's amazing how quickly some of these contracts become albatrosses (often less than halfway through the deal).  Contracts like Elias' 7-year deal where the return was pretty good overall (the first two years were the roughest...just awful puck-luck) are pretty rare.

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.

Ott killed my fantasy team this past year, so forget him :lol:

 

As for Roy..I'd take a shot at him, but there are still just too many forwards right now.  Someone's gotta go first.

Would like Derek Roy as a 3C, but only if the price is right and we'd really need to be sure we could move Ryder and/or Brunner. If we could dump even just Ryder, I'd imagine that you could just give the money saved from the Ryder trade to Roy. He's only 31 and while his shot totals have been dropping, his shooting % was pretty bad last year compared to his career number.

To be fair I think this July 1st was the busiest in a few years.  Not only that but I didn't really expect anything from the 4th until probably later today.

 

Plus most of the players left are a tier or 2 lower than the ones who have already signed.  Most will be signed to contracts between now and training camp in mid Sept.

im sure Lou is trying to move some guys but who would take like... Zubrus and give assets when you can just sign like Ott and get something similar? There's so many guys i'd just sign on that list too before trading for ryder and a few guys

This is pretty standard IME - the first wave of moves comes right away, then there is a period of silence for the July 4th weekend, then things heat back up a little bit more.

 

Anyway, no, I wouldn't take any of the free agents. I'd like someone like Winnik but the Devils have Ruutu already.  They've got enough players.  Let's drop the puck already.
