In Topic: LAMORIELLO SHOULD LET DEVILS COACH OUT OF HIS CONTRACT

Larry Brooks should mind his business and stick to covering the Rangers. They have enough problems he could write about. The Devils get no justice on the post. I don't take any Post articles on them seriously.

Big market hockey. It's what ruined the NHL aand caused us to have this salary cap. If there were harsher restrictions on the big market tams like the Rangers, Flyers, Red Wings, and Leafs, who constantly dominate the FA market year in and out, trowing ridiculous contracts at players like the Gomez and Drury one, I bet it wouldo do wonders for the league in many ways. Just MHO.

Think Erik Johnson on the Blues has a shot? I think he'd be a good young boost on defense, a replacement for Chelios. Who do you think will be captain this year?

Realistically, I can see Lou bringing back Zajac, Odyua, and Greene. Gio and Madden may come back, unless they go elsewhere for more money and better opportunity. I can see Madde going back to Michigan and play in Detroit or play for a team like Minnesota, who plays the defensive type of game Madden flourished under when the Devils played it. Gionta I can see either going out west to a team like Anaheim, San Jose, Phoenix, or going to Buffalo. Hell, maybe even the Rangers will throw him a deal like 7 yrs/$50 million :giggle:

As far as additions go, I can see us bringing Petr Sykora back, and Lou signing a dman lke Marc-Andre Bergeron, who has been mentioned here a few times. He's young, big, and puts up good numbers for a dman. Also, look on the team he played on this year. Impressive. Assuming 1 or 2 rookies crack the lineup, it may look something like this next year...

Elias-Rolston-Sykora
Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Halischuk-Zubust-Clarkson
Pando-Vrana-Bergfors

Bergeron-Martin
Odyua-White
Salvador-Mottau/Corrente/Greene

Cosa pensate?

As realistically speaking as possible, I can see Lou doing something like this next year...
Guys like Shanny, Holik, Havelid, and Rupp will either retire or find employment elsewhere. (Im hoping Holik retires and gets a job with Danno in the announcement booth lol). Gionta and Madden will either be let go or leave for more money. It wouldn't surprise me if Lou re-signs at least one of them, but let's assume the only people he brings back from this year's teama re Zajac, Odyua, and Greene...

I can see him bringing back Petr Sykora and going after a dman like Marc-Andre Bergeron from Minnesota. He's 28, has some size, and has a cannon of a shot. He put up 14 goals and 32 points this year, 7 of which were powerplay goals.

Along with any youngsters that make the team, in the unlikely event, I can see our lineup looking something like this next year...

Elias-Rolston-Sykora
Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Bergfors-Vrana-Clarkson
Halischuk-Zubust-Pando

Bergeron-Martin
White-Odyua
Salvador-Corrente/Mottau/Greene

Marty
Clemmer (assuming he stays for whatever reason. Marty can't play 70 games anymore, so it'd make sense)

Not exactly a super lineup, but we'd get younger.
