you're missing the point totally here as you tend to exaggerate what people with different opinion than you says. Completely.

Some people doesnt like Lou's way of handling free agents. Saying "he's playing with fire" is different than saying "he's gonna fail". But yeah again, you always exaggerate.

Lou has been there a GM for like an ETERNITY. He might have signed guys a year before their contract expired and not after the season weeks before free agency.... less than 10 times. I can barely remember 5... IN ALL THAT SPAN. So let's forget results and all for a second... how the hell is it unfair to be a little worried that he MIGHT wait few weeks before free agency and that the player MIGHT want to see the interest around the league at that point cause the closer players gets to free agency even if they love their team, the more they start to think about the possibities, its a fact, it's been said by free agents over and over and by Zach himself too.

So again, why is it unfair to be a little worried that Lou does something he did for for like 97% of his tenure as a GM? like really.

*** His career track record is useless to bring in discussion here cause situations are a lot different and players are not as loyal as they were either these days. Money talks a LOT and we're not a top destination like we we're before either, really not as attractive as we once was.

The "results" are really out of his hands at that point and he's putting his back against the wall hoping for the best. I'll never agree with that kind of business decision.

I think they played Tampa Bay that night...the Devils took an early 1-0 lead, but I remember it going downhill after that. I think they lost 4-1. But it was a weird night all-around...I think Daneyko himself was perplexed by the whole thing.

You're right, they played Tampa; I forget what the score was though. I really didn't understand the point of the first Dano night if they weren't retiring his number. They should've just had his number retirement ceremony and that's it. The Stevens 'flu' thing is what ruined the night for me more than anything in retrospect though. We didn't know it at the time, but we had seen Scott Stevens play his last game in the NHL.

Don't forget the power outage during the second intermission that delayed the 3rd period about 15 minutes and it was Stevens first game scratched due to his concussion, both on fake Dano night.

Fake Dano Night was a disaster. Stevens had the 'flu', they lost, Dano's mic cut out during his speech... At least we got a bobble-head lol. I still have mine.

you're absolutely right there is no comparison, but the result of player transactions in recent memory- niedermeyer, rafalski, gionta, parise, kovalchuk- didn't instill a lot of confidence in fans like coffee cake that Schneider would re-up.

The similarity with the mets is that every player transaction in recent memory has gone pretty bad- bay, Castillo, Bonilla, Perez, matsui, etc. the difference is the mets bring in players who then stink while the devils routinely lose their best players.

Speaking of Bonilla, I think he just got his annual check from the Mets this month. Lmfao.

Smoke a joint- get the fvck out of the league. Beat up your fiance to the point she's unconscious- 2 games. Goodell logic.
