Is Ryder 100% done? I mean, I think the past two years with the Devils probably killed any chance of getting a significant contract with another team.

But do you guys and gals think he'll get a tryout somewhere or something? I think he could probably still net 20 goals if he had a capable center.

In Topic: Zubrus to be bought out.

New young coach that isn't a retread
No Ryder
No Havlat
No Gomez (nothing against him, he did more than ever could've been expected, but I thought it would've been a mistake to expect anything approaching a repeat of that)
No Salvador
No Bernier
No Harrold
No Sestito
No Zubrus

I'm with you. Like that there's going to be new blood, that the young D will be getting continued on-the-job training, and that the Devils will start to find out what guys like Boucher and Matteau might bring. And that the deadwood pile is getting mulched.

This is just.. So refreshing and really exciting.

Change is always scary, but the Devils' old brand had grown rather stale imo.

Even if it doesn't 100% pan out, at least change and progress is being made.

Finally we have something to look forward to.

When was the last time we lost a RFA? We literally had 0% chance of losing him here. And didn't we do a similar deal for Henrique a few years ago? Let's not go overboard with the subtle knocks on Lou..

 

Sorry I missed this - you're right, I phrased that poorly.  I didn't intend for that to come across as a shot at Lou.  Should've said something more along the lines of "I'm excited that we're building our foundation here by locking up our core long term".

Zajac's deal is frustrating, but it's not really a big deal unless you think the Devils will be contending and need the cap space for a better player.

 

Which doesn't seem to be the case..at all.  At least for a few years.

Rangers somehow kept the team together.  Thought for sure Stepan would have to be traded.
