Dude, we had to overpay to get Clowe here. He said he came here because the offer was right, not because he wanted to be with the organization. The only guys ,outside of maybe Jagr, Cammo and Zids, that came here in recent memory were broken down has beens whom no one else wanted.

Matthias, Glencross or Brodziak especially if you want to have a decent 3rd line.

Last year was bad, but the two years before were not embarrassments. Yes, the team missed the playoffs in those two years, but they also dominated territorially, and had really bad luck.

 

I don't have much faith in Shero, he could prove me wrong, but I don't believe he will. He is one of the only GM's that had a less impressive drafting record than the Devils, and failed to win more than 1 cup despite having two generational talents. Those who bring up MAF have a valid point, but we shouldn't forget that the Blackhawks won with a tandem of Huet and Niemi. 

 

Moore is a foolish signing and not someone the Devils need, and Bobby Butler part 2 aka Jim O'Brien will be a dud. 

 

Yeah but you gotta face the fact that we don't have very much to offer in the way of trades and NJ is probably one of the least desirable teams to go to right now. We have to bottom out before we can bounce back.

Oduya is still out there. Free Agency isn't closed yet. Trades can still be made. Then there are PTOs. Plenty of time.

All in all I think the signing and opening spots up for younger "unproven" talent is a good thing. The past few seasons where we signed a lot has-beens (sans Jagr) didn't really get us anywhere. I'd feel much better missing the playoffs with this roster than the previous season's rosters.
