I think DM was referring to the implication that your having to work until 10pm would cause you to miss news of trades, and that's yet another thing that would make your day terrible.

That is a great signing by Atlanta, they needed someone like Bobby up front to help with their kids.


He will flourish there.

Atlanta and Columbus two of the best young teams coming up, watch them both this year.


For anyone who does not think Aucion is worth the money he signed for, you did not watch him play, he and Kenny Johnson basically played every minute of the game for the Isles, he was in the top 5 d the last year, no doubt about it. I don't know why he signed with Chicago though, unless they are going to try and win for once, but maybe they promised him that.

If Modano goes to Boston, does that mean they are more likely to deal Thorton? I heard their offer to him was not to his liking, hummmm.


I am worried about Anaheim taking Scotty, that's what the TSN guys said the other day, I think now, that is the only team I am really worried about, well, Calgary too.

I hope whoever said Vancouver is not going to be able to sign him is right, if not, then add them to the top of the list.

If Burke will do it, I trade Friesen yesterday for Rob, do it Lou, do it now!!!!!!!



I am so happy Lou drafted my ghost's son, I did not even know he was my ghosts son until today, but now he is one of my favorite Devils, and you know he will become a player, you just know it B )

Hahahaha...long overdue. Now they need to get rid of Jacobs.


The problem is, NJ only plays them 4 times a year. We were only able to get them to trade JT and fire the idiot GM. If we played them 8 times a year, maybe Jacobs might have an epiphany and sell the team.

And hear him talk about how he didn't sign for the money but an opportunity to do what he always wanted to do: "Teach younger players."

"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."

Madden is not making 3.86...he's making less than that I believe.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Nope.

3.86 is correct

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Blueskirt, I've heard an interview with Madden where he says it's not. Because of certain things in the contract, like deferred $$, which doesn't count against the cap, and team bonuses, which were declared invalid by this CBA, he said the amount that was actually going against the cap was $2.4 million. Maybe he's wrong. But I'm just saying that there is a discrepancy, reported by the player himself. This is why I said in another thread that we really have incomplete information about what the cap number currently IS for the Devils, because we have no idea how contracts are structured and, in fact, most players are no longer eligible for even individual bonuses. Team bonuses are certainly gone. And who knows whether individual bonuses were stricken from EXISTING contracts for non-eligible players with this CBA. If so, everything we see on those salary charts may be way over-inflated.

Bobby Clarke just said in his press conference he is done with the FA market. He also confirmed the Markov trade for a third rounder. Hatcher, Sim and Rathje and Therien all signed.

Well I thought I read somewhere that he had $6.5 million to spend, and I imagine signing those 4 players pretty much kicked that amount.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Um, would you rather have Scott or Friesen?


Yeah, that's what I thought, do it now Lou!!!!!


I can't stand Friesen to begin with, but to keep Scott we have to try everything.


I like Rob too, I think he if used correctly can be an excellent addition to any team.


However Burke won't do it, he wants to sign Scott himself :blink:

Flyers pull a 'Hatcher' job

The Broadstreet Bullies look to return to their bruising ways, as they sign three wide bodies on defence.

Sportsnet.ca -- The Philadelphia Flyers weren't able to lure Adam Foote into the fold, but Bob Clarke has still managed to beef up his blueline.

Sportsnet has learned the Flyers have agreed to multi year deals with big defensemen, Derian Hatcher and Mike Rathje.

Both men are listed at 6'5, 235 lbs, so clearly it's the Flyers intent to get bigger.

But Philadelphia didn't stop there, adding a third towering defensemen in re-acquiring 6'5 Ottawa native, Chris Therien, the Flyers seventh choice in the 1990 NHL draft.

The Flyers have called a 1pm ET media conference to unveil their additions, with sources telling Sportsnet it will include a fourth player in forward Jon Sim.

Hatcher is 33 and very recently became available after becoming a casualty to the buy-out process at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings, along with former teammates Darren McCarty and Ray Whitney.

31-year-old Mike Rathje was drafted 3rd overall by the San Jose Sharks in 1992 and has played his entire career in San Jose.

Hatcher was injured for most of 2003-04 season, playing in just 15 games for Detroit and amassing four assists.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>







HAHA, they brought that pylon Therien back? Flyer fans probably are jumping off the Ben Franklin Bridge over that one. Hatcher is past his prime, but Rathje is a solid signing for them. You can count them out of the Nieds sweepstakes now.
