  1. If we only get 2 years out of this contract that would be a disaster. There is a risk with any long term contract but I think Lou properly played the odds here and if he has a 2014-15 like last year he was in for a BIG payday. He could have gotten 6+ on the FA market and then to keep him the Devils would have paid way more. And the CAP stays the same this year now! This is a really fair deal.
  2. 4/22 is not as good. CAP hit higher and that is bigger issue than last year.
  3. Best news of the Summer. When Salvador goes on LTIR, he'll be our Captain.
  4. Yes it's a looong summer http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/gotta-see-it-time-lapse-shows-nhl-logo-changes-history/ http://youtu.be/5xFq499xDzQ
  5. I think this teams is 10-20 goals better than last year, a better goaltender, and the PP should be improved. We won't go oh for shootout so I see 95 points and the playoffs.
  6. What would be your calculations?
  7. http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2014/07/devils_sign_cory_schneider_to_7-year_42_million_contract_extension.html The Devils have signed goalie Cory Schneider to a 7-year, $42 million contract extension.
  8. Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice 27s Lamoriello said team's goaltending and defense are set and forwards are mostly set.
  9. Greg Wyshynski ‏@wyshynski 38s Devils want to bring Ryan Carter back but nothing to report “at this point” per Lou.
  10. Greg Wyshynski ‏@wyshynski 58s Lou just said free agency isn’t a “status quo” process, becoming the first thing ever that isn’t “status quo” for Lou.
  11. Rich Chere ‏@Ledger_NJDevils 1m Schneider: "I tend to be a loyal guy. I don't have any interest in bouncing around from team to team." Greg Wyshynski ‏@wyshynski 3m Lou: Cory’s not here to replace Marty. Cory’s here to create his own identity. Greg Wyshynski ‏@wyshynski 4m Lou: Marty will always be a Devil (he means in spirit, people) (I think)
  12. Lamoriello: "It's longer than we've done in the past."
  13. https://twitter.com/Ledger_NJDevils/status/486960610115354624 Devils' conference call in 10 minutes DOES involve Cory Schneider and his contract. http://
  14. https://twitter.com/TGfireandice/status/486961837603565568 Hearing 7 years, $6 million per for Cory Schneider.
  15. Lou on the length of the contract (and a reference to Elias) "Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do. You have to pick the right people and that's the case here. "He takes care of himself and he's a well-conditioned player. We're going too be losing a couple player in a couple years and he can still play. He just turned 32 in June." http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2014/07/devils_get_their_man_in_mike_cammalleri_but_was_5-year_25_million_deal_too_much.html
  16. Here's the tweet Brodeur camp did talk to likes of TB and Pitt but obviously no deals there... Will be very patient... even if it takes all summer....
  17. The Devils continued to add depth up front by signing right wing Martin Havlat to a one-year, $1.5 million contract. Havlat, 33, had 12 goals and 10 assists in 48 games with San Jose last season. He was due to make $6 million in 2014-15 before the Sharks bought him out over the weekend, making him an unrestricted free agents. Havlat is good friends with longtime Devil Patrik Elias (and they have the same agent). Elias was happy to hear his good buddy would be joining him in New Jersey. “Hope he can be the player that he was and I believe I can help him do that,” Elias said via text. - See more at: http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/fireice/devils_sign_martin_havlat_to_one-year._1.5_million_contract/#sthash.ToTIjwR9.dpuf
  18. He's on NHL TV now "You're the youngest forward on the team now" "Help the teams win games. Talking to Mr. Lamoriello has been interesting." "young family, less travel in NJ was a consideration"
  19. For sure... we all know Marty's view of reality doesn't always match reality.
  20. Inside info says he is heavily leaning towards the nice weather and abundant golf courses.
  21. Ryder still plays on this team?
