honestly all those points i don't think that by themselves are big deals honestly and you can always look into those and kind of somewhat justify them one by one. We did well through all of those and it didnt really bite our ass "that much".

BUT, They are all part of a pretty damn clear pattern that lou has and this pattern over a long period of time did catch up with us and here we are.

Just that Lou mostly always sat and gave the opportunity to core players to walk for nothing (the list is pretty damn long) and thank god we were competitive and that players wanted to stay here, a LOT of them did re-sign but they could have walk too, you just can't gamble with that and it did bite our asses quite a few times. And then the patching work win-now mentality signing vets. Of course it was not a problem and the consequences were not as bad when we were a powerhouse and were drafting okay. But once our stock dropped it really exposed how problematic it was.


You have changed your tune. Why the sudden switch of oppinion?

Toots was one of my highlights of the season. Glad he is back.

My mistake. Yes, Larsson is RFA this summer.

Elias won't get a return classified as a "steal" as a 39 year old, so I think we will definitely keep him.

I could see a player like Zubrus benefit a younger team like Calgary or even the NY Islanders come playoff time. Same goes for Bernier and Gionta.

I would keep Bernier and Tootoo.


Zubrus is done. If he is not on this team he us out of the league. I can't see any team wanting or needing him.

If you are considered surplus to requirements in this devils lineup you shouldn't be in the NHL.
