If this is true we can be certain about a few things:

(1) Stevens isn't coming back (sorry, PK/DD, but maybe they will let him set up a full time kissing booth at home games in his retirement as a way to try and attract fans)
(2) Elias is going to be out for a pretty long time
(3) Somebody's ass is getting traded as soon as Elias is back if not sooner
(4) There was a lot about those old contracts for the 10 players that were already signed that we didn't know about because they must have contained lots of (a) deferred $$$ or (b) bonus payments that don't exist now...otherwise Lou would be in very deep sh!t and there is no way he could do this

Not buying it. I see no confirmation on TSN or anywhere else.

I do not think Lou would sign Mogilny for 3.5. At most Alex would come back for 2.5.

Anyway, we'll see what it's like in the morning.

My thoughts exactly. This is one of those times when Lou feels like God, but in a bad way; you know, like "I don't understand what you're doing, but I know you have a plan... and would you just give us a freakin' sign already?!?!?"

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


HAHA! Dude man you're on crack.

Yes Almo! I called it. There was NO reason for him not to come back. No demand for him, why not go back to the place that totally spun his career around. He always said he loved it here. Yes! I love this move. Gomez has got to be thrilled too.

But damn 3.5 a year, I hope that doesn't mean Elias isn't coming back for awhile. I doubt it, Elias has said in the past how great it was for Lou to give him that qualifing offer when he knew about how Elias possibly couldn't return for awhile.

Lou knows the ways to beat around this new CBA. As Oasis says "It's all part of the masterplan..."

I really wish TSN or some other major site would just report that Sportsnet is wrong with a big headline.

SPORTSNET WRONG

Š„klund (2.3% accurate) (2.3% accurate)'s blog more accurate, better scoops

I dunno. Just a thought.

If this is true then I can't wait to see what Lou has in the making in terms of a trade or something. I have always loved Mogliny but I am worried about giving out this much money to a guy his age with his injury problems. Neverless, I will continue to drink the kool-aid, with rum of course,...lots of rum.

Actually your post has given me the first positive vibe that Stevens will indeed be back.

I keep checking all the sites even watched News 12 NJ- NOTHING!

Until another source I'm skeptical that it's true.

It's 11:00 pm in NJ I'm not going to stay up for a confirmation that may not come.

Good night all!

This can't be correct. Almo would be a good signing for this team, but for that kind of moeny. Surely there couldn't be that kind of interest.

"New Jersey has always been a front-runner for me and I always wanted to come back," he said Tuesday night from California.

"We're 100 percent comfortable that he is 100 percent healthy," Lamoriello said.

"The signing puts the Devils over the $39-million salary cap, but less than the 10 percent maximum. Lamoriello said the club will be back under the threshold before the Oct. 1 deadline."


Apparently this was another CBA wrinkle we haven't heard of until now.....I guess you can be 10% over the cap until the deadline.

Yes, Brooks reported this on Sunday, we were wondering about stuff like this, he provided some interesting info about how much you can be over the cap and how long you can be over it in the off-season.

Well, I guess lets see what he can still do.

While his skating is in question, he still has an amazing shot. We all know Gomez can help him out. Although Mogilny didn't score goals the Andreychuk way, he created his own oppurtunities. I hate it, I'm excited but skeptical.
