man...i feel like a trade is coming. we have salary room and if stevens returns, extra defensemen.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



Maybe Lou has some fine print added in the new NHL rules that says:

"Rule LL007: If Niedermayer is signed on another team the NJ Devils are allowed to play with 7 players at all times. The 7th player on the ice must be a defenseman."

It would be about the same to have Hale, Brown and Mcgillis on the ice as having Nieds.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Malakhov resigned... how unsurprising.

Very glad to see Rafalski will remain in NJ.

And for some reason today, I was looking at the UFA list and thought, "Dan McGillis, eh? Hmm..." Go figure.

Well, at least we can suit an all-NHLers lineup on D now.

if all 3 of those players are signed, stevens may very well not be coming back.

geez, I didn't know that Devils fans were so negative about things. Yes Niedermayer is gone and I am upset about this but what are we supposed to do, just give up?! Come on now. Let's see what happens and support the squad.

Also, this shows that Lou did have a backup plan. Might not be one that everyone was hoping for, but he still had a plan.

Neidermayer is a blow to us but i think that we will be fine...McGillis adds size which we need, as does Malakhov. Rafalski is just great... I am confident even tho no neidermayer in nj.

You will see Luzzo.

This was the best case scenario if Nieds left, qualtiy depth and doesn't force the kids to have to play now.

Ok Lou shored up the Defense with a couple of offensive DMen. Is there still enough cap room to get a cheap scoring foward and bring Stevens back?

I think Whitey and Brown get moved. McGillis is a lot more annoying to play against and from what I remember, a lot less dumb-penalty prone.

I know that McGillis and Brashear are two dudes on my "I'd like to hit with my car" list when they weren't playing for the Devils.

I bet Stevens comes back.

Honestly can't see a place for Brown with the Devils now... unless he's to be kept around as insurance. And where does Hale fit into everything?

Rafalski
Matvichuk
Martin
White
Hale
Malakhov
McGillis
Brown
Stevens(?)

Is anybody concerned that Malakhov, well, stinks?

Plus, I could have sworn he was talking about imminent retirement when with the Rangers last year.

But it's good to get Rafalski back. McGillis ain't bad.
