Greetings Devil fans, I come in peace!


From Hockey Rumor Buzz

http://bleacherrepor...nogenov-kotalik

The latest information to hit my desk!

When looking at the New Jersey Devils lackluster roster, it can be sure that they are looking to bolster a very mediocre forward corps that saw the team lose John Madden, Bobby Holik, and Mike Rupp.

The answer to the Devils' woes comes in the form of two ex-Buffalo Sabres forwards Maxim Afinogenov and Ales Kotalik.

A source very close to Devils management has informed us, after much reluctance at first, that the Devils have not only made an offer to Saku Koivu, as stated yesterday by Hockey Rumor Buzz, but are also pursuing these two aforementioned players.

Both have blazing speed and can put the puck in the net and with the right line-mates, twenty goals from each of them will be very easily acquired.

In the next few days you will be hearing more of this situation and expect a signing shortly after.

Afinogenov to New Jersey HRB Rating: 5

Kotalik to New Jersey HRB Rating: 3

This guy is a douche. Read his article about Koivu coming to the Devils:

In reference to the possibility of Koivu signing with the Devs or Rags (from Bleacher Report):

The Devils and Rangers now have both offered three year deals but where would you rather play and lose? In a musky dump in the middle of a gang violence zone, or in the bright spotlight of Broadway? I say Koivu ends up in New York.

I think Єklund (2.3% accurate) (2.3% accurate) should be notified. I'm sure he's copyrighted all of his various crap and garbage.

You guys don't think that Kotalik and Afinogenov would be good fits for the Devils? That's why I came here and posted it because I heard the Rangers were after Kotalik and wanted to know the thoughts from fans on the other side of the river.

no. they aren't. they're good fits for the rangers because the rangers don't take into account if a player actually wants to play in new york.

go back to your "bright lights" and enjoy the countless seasons of 7th place finishes and 1st round exits. I don't care what our environment is, and I don't care where we play- we have 3 parking lot celebrations. You have 1 parade. Which would you choose?

Is it a sudden miracle? Does NY no longer have gangs either!?!? Sure does seem it from that post! I think I've encountered more bums and crackheads in NY in one day than the past 2 seasons of traveling into Newark.

We need a first line center, not a crappy third line RW in Kotalik... I'd like to have Maxim, but only if the price were right. His numbers have been down, so in theory you'd think he'd command less than the 3.5 mil he made last year. However, with the ridiculous deals that have been made during this offseason for underperformers (Brian Gionta's 5mil per comes to mind) I gotta believe somebody's going to pony up for him, and it won't be Lou.

I'll take our Newark thugs over their Broadway douchebags any day of the week.

I wouldn't mind Kotalik instead of Shanahan to team up with Bergfors to try and replicate Gionta's numbers but I'm sure some other team could give him more playing time/bigger role.

Like the Rangers because they have no one on their team right now.
