Bettman will probably let him back in. I have no faith in him to do the right thing.

I feel like its a no-brainer he'll let him back, and I think he should. If there are teams that want him, then he is the douche who blocks him from playing. Might be better to just pass the buck onto the teams, see which of them want to employ a guy like that despite his history.

This has been one of the most utterly boring FA/post-draft periods I’ve ever seen....

Outside of the resolution of the Tavares thing, which happened pretty much immediately rendering it completely drama-less and boring, you are totally correct.

Not sure how I feel about it. I want to believe people deserve second chances but it was an egregious crime and he didn't do much time for it although he lost a lot of wages I guess. Idk how much he made in the KHL. 

Do you guys remember the Mike Danton story? 

Based on one article he was tied for the 2nd largest salary with Datsyuk at 270 million. Only Kovy was higher at 330 million. He didn't lose anything. 

I remember the whole Danton story but that guy never played another game in the NHL after all that stuff came out.

Good for Gibbons. He worked his ass off to deserve that contract. As much as i like him, i would not have been willing to give him a one way deal. Let's bring up the kids

Amanda isn’t a UFA, but this was the much debated about news:

Brian Gibbons signed a one year deal with the @AnaheimDucks at $1M. It's his first one way deal.


The only player in Devils history to score a 3-on-5 goal. Good luck in So Cal my man.

I thought Scott Niedermayer did? Although he was dragged down on a breakway and scored it on e penalty shot?

I also unfollowed Abbey for good a couple weeks back.  She is a glorified sports ticker who rather report on the Mets anyways.

You’re right, Nieds did it in the 2000 playoffs against Florida. Gibbons is the only Devil to do it in the regular season.

Happy for Gibby.  What a great start he had for us. 
Too bad he got hurt. Will never know if he would've produced the whole season. Was definitely in the right place at the right time.

This confirms for me what Ray’s plan is.   If you thought last year was a youth movement, wait until you see this season. He wants to bring up guys from the AHL and see what they can do. There’s no other reason you wouldn’t give a guy like Gibbons $1 million.

I’m not saying that it’s good or bad, I just have that feeling.I’m not saying that it’s good or bad, I just have that feeling.

There's not that many open spots anyway. 3rd and 4th line RW is up for grab. Everything else is for the established roster players to lose. I'm sure if Ray could have got a good free agent at a good price or a trade that'd make the team better that he would of done it though

The general area of Philadelphia? He can play hockey, but the dude needs a geography lesson. His home town is closer to MSG and The Rock than it is to whatever that sh!t hole is called now... Wells Fargo or whatever.
