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.

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.


tallinder plays the puck incredibly well

"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."

You can go over the cap by 10% in the offseason so the Devils can sign Kovi and figure out the cap stuff later.

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.

This is okay... depending on the style of hockey they play. If they play like they did 2 seasons ago, they will be sound.
If the defensemen are going to be relied on to do anything other than defend and hold the line, well, that's another story.

Seems like Greene is getting Martin's job as a first pair defenseman. Volchenkov's puck skills are well, interesting. He pretty much has to play with Greene.

We also have a new big, tank that will play physical (not Colin White physical, mind you) and stand his ground. I'd say it's a definite improvement.

Plus, the two best PMD were gone (Gonchar, Martin). I think Lou did damn well getting this guy.

Imagine how PISSED you'd be if we didn't sign anyone.

5m left and we have 18 players under contract. Lou has to move some mountains to actually fit Kovy in even if he could go over the cap a little bit to get the contract in.

A pure BEAST on defense. Oh where the hell have you been for the last 7 years?

Moves still have to be made. Hopefully Lou is working on moving a regular from the defense and offense to clear some cap room.
