They've become a farm system for the rest of the league, developing great talent that is eventually poached by those paying more, yet they routinely rank among the league's best. - AOL Sports

this is a very good signing. the devils could not go into the season with tim sestito or michael swift as 5th on the depth chart.

At least we have a Niedermayer back. Of course it's not the one I would have preferred.

If its for anything more than 1M its an epic fail....hell, he was saying he never received ant "financially satisfactory" offers a few weeks ago!

Even his big brother couldn't talk the Ducks into resigning him....

I wonder what the length and dollar amount of the contract are but I assume they aren't bad. Obviously nothing that makes the team a ton better but it'll help a good amount until Elias comes back and gives the team some flexibility with lines back.

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.

Too late Lou, too late.

This guy can't skate anymore but if he gets about 7-9 minutes a game I guess it isn't horrible.

the ducks don't need him at all. the devils do. hopefully the offer is under $800K, but if it's over $1M it's not the end of the world either, since the devils aren't going to be adding anything major at the deadline.

i also don't like rob niedermayer and will be sure to be shouting at my TV, but this is better than tim sestito.

Hmm, i am really not sure how this is going to be helpful at all. In the last 3 seasons he generated a total of 53 points. I really dont see him putting up more than 25 (very optimistic) points this upcoming season. Also does this mean that they threw in the towel on Swift, who i think can at least do a little better than Niedermayer?

I'll withhold judgement unti I see what we're paying him, but all of the same people ripping this signing would be the same people that would rip Lou for doing nothing so I'm not surprsied to see the negative opinions.

This is an excellent signing depending on the price. He is big, fast, defensive center. Excellent for the 4th line once Elias comes back. Niedermayer > Pelley + Sestito together on the ice.

I'll also be the first to say.....LETS GET NIEDERMAYER AT THE DEADLINE!
