In Topic: NJDevils re-sign defenseman Adam Larsson to a six-year contract.

26 July 2015 - 09:21 AM

I feel a little worried about this deal.  Sure he has played somewhat well.  But I worry about his skating honestly and the style of play Hynes wants to implement.  He did well with Stevens and his more conservative play, but with DeBoer, he was constantly in limbo.  I want him to far exceed this contract but this is definitely a risk contract.  We have plenty of leeway to take that risk, but we do have Severson, Santini, Gelinas, and Merrill that could've had that same risk that we could've differed past this contract.  I would've liked a 1 year arbitration more than this.

 

Worst case scenario is Larsson is a good middle pairing guy with a competent partner. At $4M thats OK, not great but this won't handicap the payroll in the future.

In Topic: Fan Misery Index - Devils #1....really?

I don't feel miserable at all as a Devils fan. We just started a new era, we have stable owners, new upper level management, and a young foundation. Sure there are transitional pains and growing pains but misery would be being a Coyotes fan at the present moment, not at all a Devils fan.

 

And Lou did not "bail" on the organization. This guy is a hack and it shows because he is working for SI.

NOOOO!

 

I told you fools.

I know, I wanted to miss the playoffs for another couple of years.


I don't know if I understand this from Toronoto POV. Great GM who will certainly make the Leafs a tight ship but long term I guess they are grooming Dubas.

In Topic: 2015 Devils Prospect Scrimmage - 7/18 @ 3PM

Sounds like Conte did an awful job recently.

 

Happy to hear these encouraging reports

Yeah man, this scrimmage makes me think half of the guys owned by NJ will make it cause they played well in development camp. Get real. 29 other fanbases are raving about their development scrimmages as well.

In Topic: Devils resign eric gelinas to 2 year deal

This is a nice deal because if Santini/Moore/etc. take a step this year/next year Gelinas can be a valuable piece in a trade. RFA at end of contract and very friendly cap hit for the next 2 years. Obviously this is just thinking ahead. I hope he continues to be a offensive juggernaut.
