N.J. Devils hopeful about younger Federov

http://www.nj.com/de...out_younge.html

"That's the only reason I'm here," Fedorov said Tuesday. "No other reason. There is no (other) point in me being here."

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello signed the 6-3, 230-pound forward to a one-year, one-way contract for $500,000.

"We know what his abilities and talents are," Lamoriello said. "We feel he has the ability to make the team."

Federov is candid, saying Sergwi is better then him. NO news there, I'm sure.

And Clemmensen got a $500,000 one year deal? Wow.

Weather he is in NHL, AHL, or wherever, this is a 500K gift to Fedorov - he must have pictures of Lou.

He was highly touted in Vancouver, but didn't get along well with the GM.

This is a new opportunity for Federov. I hope he is a diamond in the rough.

But he had a good season last season. Nobody is banking on Federov making the team but his year last year in Russia can certainly warrant a look at him to see what he has.

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.

More of the Devils reaching into the gutter in my opinion, but whatever...no harm done. Not like he will make or break the team.

And Mike Mottau was part of 4 organizations before landing in New Jersey, where he proved himself a capable 3rd pairing guy, getting a 47 in Alan Ryder's Hockey Analytics (similar to the score of Fedor Tyutin and Wade Redden - actually, Jagr only had a 54 himself).

On what planet is 12 goals and 13 assists in 49 games considered "a good season"? Not excited about this at all.

Scoring in the RSL ain't like scoring in the NHL.

In three seasons with CSKA Moscow, Alexander Mogilny's highest goal total was 15. Sergei Fedorov's was 19 (prior to that he scored single-digits the previous three seasons). Zelepukin never scored more than 17 goals there.

just ignore the post above you.

assists are given out much less frequently in the russian league. for example, fedor's team scored 132 goals and had 178 assists. the devils scored 198 goals and had 346 assists.

the scoring in the russian league is about on par with the NHL, but fedor's team was not a good scoring one, and he was 4th in scoring on his team, and he got shorted a bunch of assists he would've had in the NHL. adjust it for a league average russian offense and give him 30% more assists, and his scoring looks something like 15 goals and 17 assists in 50 games, which is looking quite a bit better.

I was going to explain how RSL scoring differs from the NHL but other people have already taken care of that.
