I dont know how much cap space we have but this guy is a monster in front of the net, which is something we have not had in a while. i would love to see the team add him since it does not look like were getting a puck moving dman

No, if you claim Parrish on waivers you pay his full salary and take on the full cap hit. You only take on half a players cap hit if you claim him on re-entry waivers when a team tries to bring a player back onto the NHL club.

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.

The Devils are done adding. If they add anything more of significance, it will be after subtracting. Lou will not back himself into a corner as he did in 2005-06.

something has to give

If you add Vrana, Bergfors, Federov, and Corrente who could all make the team, we've got 27 players.

We're definitely not adding without numerous subtractions.

Between Pelley, Rupp, Bergfors, Vrana, and Federov, 2 will make the team

Between Greene, VV, Brookbank and Corrente, 2 will make the team

I think 3 could make the team.

Parise-Elias-Rolston
Zubrus-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Pandolfo-Madden-Gionta
Vrana-Holik-Clarkson

Rupp/Fedorov

I don't think Clarkson's spot is 100% guaranteed either, not with how he ended up last season.

Between Greene, VV, Brookbank and Corrente, 2 will make the team


This is true, but I don't think losing any of these is really a loss. Throw Anssi Salmela's name in there too, and Mike Mottau's, too - his spot is not 100% guaranteed either.

Maybe. Lou still might be trying to upgrade the D. I think when Sundin Finally signs then you might see some more trades. We might have something in the works with Vancover, but we are playing the waiting game.


As of right now we have about $2.2 in cap and VV is probabaly gone or demoted, so that frees up $1.8. So we have $4 million in cap space.

The only thing I question is if everyone thinks Bergfors is ready then where will he play? Unless you trade a Winger all our spots on the first two lines are taken. Unless you drop Lagenbrunner to the 3rd line and Pando to the 4th? I looks liek this. Sorry Mike Rupp odd man out!

While I agree Mottau's spot isn't written in stone, it would be hard not seeing him on the roster when camp breaks and letting him play himself out of a spot

I think the Devils will carry 8 d-men and thus one forward will be eliminated
Clarkson will make it since he still has upside and he is our fighter.

I agree 100%... he's going to play on the 2nd pp too.

Martin, Oduya, Rolston, and then it could be any of Eckford, Corrente, Mottau, Brookbank, or Greene depending on how camp shakes out, I would think.

Some team in need of a scoring/aggressive touch will pick him up, he'll be an upgrade to any teams PP if they have someone with a nice shot from the point.
Since he is not bought out does that mean that he is a FA without a contract or does the team that picks him have him under his contract and it just won't count against the Wilds cap? Either way I say Vancouver will pick him up.

Yeah, Parrish would be a welcome addition to a number of teams. Van is a good possibility.

carring eight defensemen this year would be quite silly. the devils have no need for 8 defensemen - they actually have a top 6 this year. if they're going to let greene ride the bench they may as well waive him.

mottau on the 2nd PP would be pretty wretched. langenbrunner could play that point, perhaps.

He was just bought out yesterday actually.
