This is a great signing and hopefully signals the end for either White or Salvador.

i love this freaking deal for one simple reason:


by getting volchenkov, THERE IS NO CHANCE IN HELL WE KEEP MOTTAU!!!


I would say it's more likely that White, Salv or Fraser go...too many of the same type

My apologies on the Volchenkov part, man. I really thought he was headed to the Caps.

I'm not sold that Kovy will be here, though, haha.

HOLY fvck 6 years..........


This maybe means that we are not hitting the cap to bad so it give us money for Kovy.

I'm guessing this means the end of Sal and/or maybe White?


Well it depends...If Lou thinks our D is good like that well it will be all on signing Kovy and if not well maybe you will see white or Salvy going in a trade for Kaberle.

$25.5 for 6 years isn't bad at all. I'll take that.

Lou's secret plan revealed: Tie up Grossman all day on the phone with Volchenkov negotiations so other teams blow their cap money and can't lock up Kovy.

love this.
i'm almost crying over here thinking about what an improvement having volchenkov on the ice in the waning moments of a close game is over mottau.

impossible - no more $ for him. lou gave it to two stiffs. unless he's got rolston AND salvador out the door, you can forget kovalchuk.

the devils are a 2nd rate destination. sad face.

"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."

Lou learned nothing from the playoffs.

We now have only one puck moving defenseman, Andy Greene, aka only one dman who isn't terrified to play the puck when facing a team's forecheck, which is what killed us against Philly.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Just spoke with Lou Lamoriello who confirmed Volchenkov deal. Asked him about Kovalchuk, ``We're still in it."
