Cammalleri and DSP Bought Out

Recommended Posts

Per Friedman.

Doesn't make a ton of sense as i'd rather just be done with the cap hit after next year, but hopefully a sign of exciting things brewing.

Wow DSP too.

Cleaning house here, making room for the young guys.  I love it.

Cammy and DSP both bought out -- mods should update title. This is exciting.

So Camm is 1.6 cap hit over 4 years instead of 5 over 2 years and DSP its 175k this year and 225k next instead of 1.3 mil this year for a total of about 4 mil this season. And before resigning all RFAs and FAs the Devils were already about 4 million under the floor so they have to spend like 8 mil now.  At least according to cap friendly. The Devils really don't need the cap space so this has to be for roster spots really.

This is great news, the only thing he did worth remembering was being the first Devil to ever wear #13.

That's how it may go down in the annals of Devils history, but signing Cammalleri was a big deal when it happened. People were excited the Devils were willing to bring in a bonafide goal scorer, though the term was worrisome - and hey, look at that, the term ended up being something of a problem.

He nearly hit 30 goals in his first season and was about a point per game in the second season... but injuries kept popping up and this last year he just didn't look like the Cammalleri of the previous seasons. He shanked one-timers, passed on good scoring opportunities, and just wasn't the kind of threat he was before.

Damn.

That should come as a surprise to zero people, including Mike. He had a big cap hit and 2 years left on his deal. Nobody was taking that sh!t.

Man what does our forward roster look like at this point? 

Hall, Henrique, Palmieri, Zajac, Zacha, Wood and maybe Hischier?

I guess Quenneville, Lappin, and Thomas have roster spots? Still we look short. I'd also assume Noesen comes back, maybe Bennett too but I think something else is happening. We had plenty of cap space before buying Cammy out, now we're going to have to reach the floor.

McLeod is expected to make the jump. We'll almost definitely re-sign Beau Bennett. I'd be surprised if we didn't make one Fiddler-type signing, or even a PAP/Stempniak move too.

Well I imagine we're adding some UFA.

Plus add in Draisaitl after Edmonton doesn't match the offer sheet we throw his way... :evil:

Joking aside, we're looking at a total youth movement here.

I hope McLeod is ready. I'd be a little worried with both him and Hischier starting the same season but it could be what this team needs. As 118 said a complete youth movement.

I'm loving the youth movement idea. I just hope we don't overload but it looks like youth wins nowadays. After Oshie, I'm not sure who the best UFA forwards are but I'm looking forward to the next few days. What a great offseason for this team.

As of right now the Devils have only Forward that is over the age of 30, Travis Zajac 32.  The next oldest is Henrique he is 27

Can we get Jagr back?

I hope not, Lou bringing back past Devils was one the worst things he would always do.

Extra spots available. I would love to see Mcleod and Hischier both start the year with the Devils. NJ is becoming a very very fast team.

DSP being bought out was, I hope, a formality.  Cammalleri less so, I wish they didn't have to do it, but if Vegas didn't want him in any deal or he didn't want Vegas, tough to make it happen any other way.
