Thanks for all the heart you gave us. A great Devil.

As I said before, Lou is remaking this team.

"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."

As much as I know it had to be, I'm sad to see Maddog go. I'll have nothing but good memories of his days as a Devil, starting with that 2006 playoff series versus the Rangers and that goal that almost brought the house down. I don't think the CAA was ever louder.

I'm sad to see him go too. If Lemaire is coaching the team next year and we're back to defense-first, I would've taken Madden at that price.

that was a great read by Weekes to kill the pass. two things stick out there.

1) Richer-Madden-Langs? yeech.
2) he can't roof it to save his life, and when he does, he misses. reminds me when he had Lundqvist beat in the PS against the Rangers in Game 5.

oh yea, the big penalty shot miss against Lundqvist. Forgot that one too...would've been one heck of a comeback to tie that game. But Madden has always been Captain Unclutch.

Best of luck. Too much money for what he does, and he changes conference, so it's all good.

This is kind of emotional. All the best to Madden. Would have loved to see him back, but Lou re-signed the wrong fvcking guy last year.

Will miss Maddog. He was a Devils home grown player just like Gionta who will always be Devils in our hearts. Sad to see longtime Devils players go but it is part of the business and it sucks. I wish both Madden and Gionta well and will keep a close eye on both players now they are gone.

Great signing for Chicago. He was our best two way player in the playoffs this year (if only he could have scored on all the opportunities he made).

If he can help the Hawks offset the "Hossa effect" Madden may win another cup this year.

Madden is just too self-absorbed. I really like him and want nothing but the best -- but the direction he wants to grow in is not the direction most useful to this team. He's generous hard-working and has a good sense of fair play -- but his sense of self worth the things that make him feel important, trusted, cared about --- they're just all wrong - hollow and misguided. But whatever. He's also not the kind of guy who will learn or grow out of those concepts -- he'll just go through life secretly feeling dicked over. or heck not so secretly. But he ALMOST takes responsibility for his own happiness -- it's just one day he'll hit that wall -- and I've never been sure what he'd do when he got there --- not my problem though! :uni:
