1.5 million per year? It's about what I thought he would get.


Oh wait my bad i misread that, i thought he was getting paid 4.5 mil/year =.=.. but anyway yea 1.5 for 3 years seems like it would've came out of Lou too, i guess he just never bothered to offer him much at all or anything

I think Lou didn't want to give up the years to someone at Luko's level of play as I think the Devils can have some call up options at that level of play next season.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I agree, i think he wants to develope a new , younger defensive unit.

I think Lou might start trading for prospctive young D men this off season.

I don't understand how/why this happened. Only Lou knows. It's not like Luko was given an offer that was unreasonable. :noclue:

Agreed. Like many, I'm sad to see him go too. He seemed to develop into a fan favorite.

But, evidently, LL felt that what made him stand out was not his play, but the lower play of the other D.
And Lou felt a change was needed. I dont' think it was the $ or term. Just a evaluation that his team needed more than Luko could offer.

Good Luck Brad. You served us well in your short time here.

Funny how much a difference a year can make. If this was last year most of us would be saying good riddance.

It was great seeing him settle in here in NJ after such a rough start after the trade off the island. I hope he has a good reintroduction to Tampa since he proved to be such a solid character guy for the Devils.

Oh booo. It sucks because Luko played so well for us and is a great guy, but times are a changing here. I wouldn't be comfortable with White, Matty and Luko again as the 3 defensive defenseman.

Defensemen like Luko are sadly a dime a dozen, he can be replaced, I'll still miss him though.

IMO this comes down to contract length.

If lou offers a 3 year deal he stays, i think lou only wanted a one year deal.

Can blame him for going to tampa, he has security for 3 years.

Something that is never garunteed here unless your last name is Brylin (watch he will get traded now, i have cursed him)

Luko > Racoon

Don't understand this one... Lou seemed to really like Luko.

Matvichuk is good for 50 games max. Not sure what the thinking was here.

Maybe Lou just felt the need to sign a rag. :P
