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

I don't think it's a great deal, it's an average deal at best for a player who has yet to prove himself for a full NHL season, has a career -2, and who had one strong season after many people were calling for his head a season prior. On the plus side, he's young and has lots of potential. But I don't think it's a "great" deal because you don't know what you are gonna get.

I was wondering if I was the only one who felt this way.  Glad to see I'm not.

 

Don't get me wrong, I agree he has a ton of potential, and I think at this point it's looking like he can/might/should reach it, BUT, it's definitely an uncertainty.  I think locking him up for 6 years is a bit of a risk if he doesn't pan out.  I'm not gonna call it a bad deal by any means, but I don't think it's a "steal" just yet.

I have a feeling we're going to see a uniform re-design in the next couple of years.  I have a feeling nothing is sacred anymore.  I'm not 100% dead-set against it (many teams have re-designed their uniforms through the years), but I just hope it's nothing hideous.  The Fishsticks and Buffa-slugs show how disastrous these ideas can be. 

I didn't even think about that.  Now I'm scared.  I really, REALLY hope it doesn't happen.  That will hurt inside, more than it does now :(

I hope Shero continues to the tradition of no players wearing anything above #30.  I think it's a good precedent.

Holy fvck.  I don't know how to process this either.

 

I was actually quite excited at the idea of a tandem system, with Lou as President and Shero as GM...I guess I very much subscribe to the theory of two heads are better than one, and I figured we might as well leverage the knowledge of both guys together.

 

Sad day in Devils history.  We owe this man a lot. 

 

Good luck Lou (not really, I hope Toronto tanks, as usual)

In Topic: NHL Board Authorizes Formal Expansion Process

Yep, it was $2M non-refundable, and that's why Seattle balked at the idea.  Don't blame them, especially when they were probably 3rd in consideration.
