Jesus H Christ what is this? High school? SD is a big boy and can stand up for himself. If I had wanted to read a thread involving group therapy in would have gone to...... I don't know where I woul

Sad to see him leave.. But we got a good return

He should still push to move Ryder if he can and convince Zidlicky to waive his NTC.

lol you take the bait EVERY. SINGLE. TIME and quote me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. even though i told you countless time to just ignore it if you don't like it. Who's stupid really? I'm THRILLED to piss you off especially cause you get on my case no matter what im saying.

So you're finally admitting that your incessant and unwarranted Lou hate is just you being a troll. Good on you for being honest.

Not true SD and you know it, but I'm following Tri's lead and ignoring your stupidity from here on out. And he is right, it is liberating indeed.

Unwarranted? hahahaha look at our roster and our farm dude lol come on. It's a country club and no young forwards to take over. I may be hard on him but to say any criticism is unwarranted... thats ridiculous

I was watching the Florida Panthers/Blackhawks game and Jagr came up on the jumbo-tron wearing a Panthers jersey. So that's how I found out about this haha.

 

Jagr looked good last night. Gonna be hard to sell the team on being in the playoff chase now. Although Jagr's days were clearly numbered.

 

So does Boucher come up now? Or do we just see more Gionta/Tootoo/Bernier/Zubrus with some Sestito on the fourth line?

In fairness, a lot of fans didn't want to be sold on what they felt was a faulty premise to begin with...even more so after last night's loss. Enough of them were worried that Lou was going to leave the team intact (or add a small piece) and try to make the playoffs. I think fans are happy about what the trade represents...a realistic view on the state of the team.

Too bad Jags is going to a loser, but great haul for Lou. I guess good teams don't buy high.

Finally this site is up again! Jagr to Florida? Good. Good luck to him and I hope he misses the playoffs. I don't mean that in a disdainful way, I just mean to say that he is no longer a Devil, and is no longer my concern.

Maybe Lous agenda is to send Jagr to Florida on the premise of making sure that steam doesn't make any hay, maybe the next move is a Ryder and Havlat trade to the Bruins. Postseason here we come. ;)

But honestly that is a great return, couldn't be happier with that trade.

I was referring specifically to your insistence that Lou would decline to trade Jagr since he's the worst GM in the NHL according to you.

That being said, this is pretty much what I expected the return to be for Jagr. With the way trades had been made over the past couple weeks, there was no way Jagr wouldn't garner at least a 2nd. I wouldn't call it a steal, but it's definitely a solid return.

As for going Florida misses the postseason, I don't think it'll matter much since I don't think Florida is good enough to win a series, so the worst case would be that the pick ends up being #45.

Twice in one week I must give credit to Lou. The other day I gave him credit for getting our goalie Cory his best move in 10 years. I expected Jagr to go because he wasn't happy here anymore. He probably knew a trade was almost done the other night when he had 5 shots on goal to show the team he still had it. I thought we would get a 2nd for him I didn't think we wiuld get more like the 3rd as well, I must give crdit to Lou for the 3rd.

I liked Jagr as a Devil and therefore I will follow him in Fla.

Some Lou quotes in this article, for those who haven't read his comments on the situation...nothing you wouldn't really expect from him.  A lot of GM-speak and him trying to make it sound like he's not waving the white towel (presumably so his team won't)...comes off like he's trying to be prepared for anything without sounding committed to any one thing.  I'd give Ryder the next couple of games and hope he does enough that someone won't mind parting with a late-round pick for him (as opposed to Lou possibly not being able to give him away).  Havlat's probably a lost cause.  Lou can talk about his team still being in it, but I can't fathom that he really believes that, and I won't until I see him make moves that back that up.

I love how the caption says 'two reasons why the Jagr trade was a shocker' then Chere's first sentence says 'It came as no surprise the Devils traded right-winger Jaromir Jagr Thursday' :lol:

In addition to that, one of the surprises was that LL traded Jagr to a team above us in the standing. Did anyone expect one of Carolina, Buffalo, Toronto or Columbus to trade for Jagr?

Yeah, definitely wasn't supplying the link because of the awesomeness of the article (I used to like Chere a long time ago).  Mostly it was because it had a lot of Lou quotes.
