I see these "Jagr Bomb" and other T-Shirts advertised on the Devils FB groups all the time.  Most (actually just about all) of the t-shirt designs I see suck or just not worth the money they are asking for.  Not only that but a lot of times you wonder if the people behind this are paying for the royalties associated with using team logos as well as royalties to the player and/or NHLPA using the player's name and likeness (that's why player T's are usually $25-30 and other shirts are cheaper without player's name/number).  I am leaning towards no based on what I see on their websites and therefore these sites are in danger of getting shut down in a hurry if the team or NHL finds out.

Gelinas in his first NHL year produced just as well as Schultz and isn't a dumpster fire in his own zone (though EG is not a defensive stalwart by any means). The Schultz contract sucks, but I don't see why Gelinas' agent couldn't get at least 2 million per year. Gelinas is a physical freak of nature and has so much more  room to grow

 

Gelinas was horrible in his own end and that's what got him scratched for a bunch of games this season.  Just because Schultz got overpaid doesn't mean Gelinas is deserving of it.  I agree with MD that anything over $1.5mil is way too much.

Justin Schultz signed in Edmonton to a one-year 3.675 million dollar contract. Could this mean that other RFA offensive dmen sign? Hope we sign Gelly to a 2/4.5

 

Gelly getting 2.25 mil after just half a season last year?  No way at that price.

lol not sure why you'd say that i dont take this in consideration cause i referred to the shootouts earlier. and have you read the post you quoted at least? i said our goalies could let in 4-5 goals when we'd finally score a few goals.

 

I saw that but then in your subsequent posts you pretty much disregard that point and go on and on about "missing production" without again reminding yourself of how a lot of things went against the Devils last year to help them miss the playoffs.

exactly well thats kind of the point and shows how important goals are. a 10 goals difference from one season to another can have a HUGE impact, 10 more goals can be 10 more points in the standings easily. Of course that's not black on white. You can win a bunch of game by 3-4 goals and lose 20 games by 1 goal and it doesnt really add up if you only look at numbers but the devils are in need of timely goals. We use to win sooooo many close games, now we're losing those close games cause we can put the damn puck in the net.

 

It's really like the hockey gods are trolling us though, our goalies could stand on their head all game and we'd lose by a goal or we'd score 3-4 goals and our goalies would let in 5... this happened ALL YEAR. 

 

Basically it's not as much about numbers cause different situations can throw off stats. But we need guys who will raise their game and score goals when we need it the most. Jagr has been phenomenal last year for that. Henrique has it in him too. 

 

Obviously more goals usually mean more victories, but you are also not taking into account last year we didnt win a single shootout in 13 tries.  If they would have won half of those games, the Devils would be in the playoffs last year.  You are not taking into account that half the games were played with a goalie who wasn't cutting it and that cost us a few games too.
