When Salvador goes on LTIR, he'll be our Captain.

I'm bursting with excitement.  NEWS GUYS.  SUMMER NEWS!  I'd be happy with a Greener extension. 

4 years at 3.5 million a year, maybe 4 a year.

 

Sorry to burst your bubble. But no way. He makes 3.5 this year. I think you're looking at 5 for 25. Maybe a little less.

agreed although that would be a dream 4 years at 3.5 he is going to get something quite a bit thicker than that.. 5/25 seems to be most peoples guess.. im hoping it is 4 years between 4-5mil per.. you couldnt ask for anything better than that.

Not thrilled with 5/25 here - I recognize that it's the market price and so on, but the 5th year could very well be brutal.  Would've rather gone 4/22 or something like 7/30.

lol 3.5 is his current salary...

 I can understand the fifth year concerns but Greene seems like the kind of guy who should age well- he doesn't rely on speed or physicality so much as smart positioning and instincts. In the short term it's an absolute win to have a top pairing defensemen signed at 5 mil and IMO that negates the potential negative of the 5th year. 

Alright guys get your guesses in...
Mine is Greene extended 5yrs, $25 mil.

called it.

Even at 36, Greene will provide more for his dollar than our current cement-skates captain.

4/22 is not as good. CAP hit higher and that is bigger issue than last year.

Pretty much what the going price is on a player like Greene, but I have to agree with Triumph that the 5th year could very well be brutal.  He logs big minutes and he will be 37 by that time.  However, if the cap keeps rising at the rate it is going at, then that might not be too brutal then.

Not going to worry about that fifth year (technically sixth...he still has a year on his current deal before the new one kicks in, same as Schneider)...he may not even be on the team at that point.  If the Devils get four good years out of him, considering how these long-term deals tend to go, that's probably as much as we should realistically hope for.

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.

People are really complaining about five years when he would have easily got six years and probably six million or more on the open market?

5 for 25. Nailed it along with SMantas and dmann. That's market value. Wait to see what happens with PK and the Habs.

I'd argue it's below market price given some of the FA stupidity this offseason (see: Capitals, Washington)

To be fair, I hated signing Brassard for the same term. But it's better to lock up your own now than wait.

Greene doesn't really rely too much on physical tools so I don't think he'll age too poorly. He's surely worth at least six on the open market. Lou did pretty well with this one

Bingo. Detroit would've forked that over for sure, along with a bunch of other teams. I'm fine with 5/25.
