#1200824 Ryane Clowe signs with the Devils. 5 years. 4.85 per.

Posted by SterioDesign on 06 July 2013 - 04:45 PM

I see how a lot of these UFA's want to go play for their "home team" when they get the chance, I personally would probably do the same thing. If I were playing for the Canucks or Ducks and I became a free agent, I would love to come back east and play for the Devils. 

I think Lou should take this into consideration before that player leaves, and work out a trade to that team. Clarky is a perfect example, we were having a bad season last year and could have shipped him to the Leafs for their playoff run. We all seemed to know that he wanted to play for Toronto, I'm sure Lou knew too, and they couldve sat down and had a man to man talk about it.

We draft/sign these young players and build them up....only to see them bolt for nothing, and then we have to over pay for "replacements".

 

i'm 100% with you on this. Most will disagree though.

 

Just take the Sharks last season, very very similar situation than us and perfect example (we we're actually having a worst season than them). They were in the race for the playoffs and still traded Clowe cause they knew he wouldn't re-sign there. They still made the playoffs and wouldnt have done much better with Clowe either. They got 2 second round picks and a 3rd. I'm sure we could have got even more for Clarky. 

 

And well that some admit it or not... turns out it would have been the best move to do for the franchise. We recovered pretty well with Clowe and Ryder and all i think we have a good team for the next few seasons but again... a few extra picks in that draft or prospects would have been pretty sweet.

#1198986 CLARKSON SIGNS w/TORONTO $36.75M / 7yrs

Posted by SterioDesign on 02 July 2013 - 08:44 AM

Would anyone be happy if the Devils signed another team's free agent that's hard stretched to reach 50 points in a season (really hard stretched), isn't particularly good on the power play, isn't used to kill penalties, is a terrible passer, and has a habit of taking bad penalties...all for top 6 type dollars?  Because that describes David Clarkson.

 

Let someone else overpay and be saddled with the low returns on a bad contract.   

 

he was so bad that he was our top goal scorer and 5 of his goals were GWG. That tells a lot about our depth and why we should just be happy to see him walk.

 

i get that he was not the best player in the world but some fans here REALLY sound like they want to convince themselves that he was sh!t. Just like that butthurt girl who just got dump saying "pfff i never really liked him anyway" eventhough they've been together for 5 years.

#1198919 Devils trade #9 pick in 2013 Draft to Vancouver for Cory Schneider

Posted by SterioDesign on 01 July 2013 - 11:51 PM

Yeah, we're on the same page here Beez. This has gotta be it this year for Marty. I'll cry like a baby at his last game, but now that we have the answer moving forward, Marty needs to do the right thing for the organization and step aside after this season, one way or the other.


I almost had tears watching sakic's ceremony when they retired his jersey in colorado, and i NEVER even liked the guy, my dad was a nordique fan so sakic was the ennemy... Plus then 2001.. Meh...

But anyway i cant imagining when its gonna be marty's turn, who i idolized all my life.. Point is ill be 30 when he retires (if he does after next season) but godamnit im gonna cry like a baby for sure haha

#1198040 Larsson and the No. 9 for Letang???????

Posted by SterioDesign on 30 June 2013 - 10:29 AM

i'd be willing to trade Larsson for the right deal. I keep telling myself that he's young and will get better but i simply don't see him having all the tools to be worth where we picked him or be franchise dman. His speed his average at very best, his shot his average, skating his average, his aggressivity is below average. He can have the best vision in the world and outlet pass, not sure it's compensating for what he's lacking and i dont see those areas of his game improving "that much" over time... to be a true top Dman you need more than that IMO. He's gonna be good for sure, but franchise dman good? i dont think so, i dont see it yet and im aware of the whole niedermayer thing yes. but nieds had incredibly above average skating, speed and vision who could compensate.

#1197818 Summer 2013 UFA/RFA Thread

Posted by SterioDesign on 28 June 2013 - 06:08 PM

Unless they really heist someone with this deal, It's a step back for many seasons.  The Penguins just cannot go out and replace Kris Letang on the free agent market, players like that almost never come available.  They'll just waste James Neal's prime dithering around with mediocre talent on the backend.

 

Well if they are gonna lose him anyway in one season cause they can't afford him. Thats the thing, you have one year to make it worth if he stays, then if you're not the team lifting the cup. You lost your gamble and you lose him for nothing. Now thats a major stepback.

#1197062 Bryzgalov Bought Out

Posted by SterioDesign on 25 June 2013 - 01:02 PM

Bernier is cheap, Luongo is not.  I don't think anyone's going to trade an asset for Luongo unless they are getting some sort of salary cap relief themselves.

 

i know but now teams can retain and trade salaries they might work something that way.


So let's just recap the Flyers situation here for a second...

 

1- They trade Carter and Richards to make room for Bryzgalov.

2- Sign Bryzgalov to a 9 years, 51 millions contract.

3- Trade Bobvrosky to Colombus

4- Watch Carter & Richards winning the cup in LA.

5- Watch Bobrovsky winning the Vezina Trophy

6- Buyout Bryzgalov's contract and will have to pay him for 14 years

7- They still need a #1 goalie now....

 

good stuff, good lolz

#1190814 Clarkson.Zubrus.Elias.

Posted by SterioDesign on 08 May 2013 - 10:30 AM

i also said it before... if we let Clarkson go and decide not to overpay a little... well fine we may have saved an extra million? from a fair 4m to an unfair 5m per? but who could we sign at 4m or 5m on the market that could to a better or equal job as clarkson? none.

#1188412 Elias about Lou's free agents approach

Posted by SterioDesign on 23 April 2013 - 10:24 AM

Elias has a lot of positive things to say about the team mates and the coach. It's safe to say that if he is asked, he will stay.

 

just read that too it was encouraging, we absolutely need Elias.

#1186886 2013 NHL Draft

Posted by SterioDesign on 15 April 2013 - 11:39 PM

Well we only have 4more pts than the 27th position... Its not even impossible to be able to draft drouin or mackinnon with our own pick without even winning the lottery

Edit: actually the flames (27th) even have more regulation wins than us lol if you only look at the wins were bottom 4
