Two things that I wanted this off-season were a reasonable back up goalie and a stud defenseman. Check and check.

7 x $9. Pretty hard to accuse ownership of being cheapskates any more.

Am absolutely ecstatic about this signing. Can't wait for the season to start.

And if it's not too greedy Fitz,  a forward that can score would be the icing on the cake.

Yeah it is a shame.  He had a strong first season with sheltered minutes but got exposed when he took John Moore's spot the following season and played against stronger competition.

Outside of Kevin Hayes, how many other of these college holdouts actually do well past their first NHL season?

Well done Fitz, VERY well done.

MB3’s take was probably the most accurate, as far as a fan’s take goes…they were locked into each other pretty much from the get-go, and needed some time to get it all done.  I’m guessing if any other suitors checked in with Hamilton’s camp, they were rebuffed.  Seemed like once negotiations are well underway, it was simply a case of closing it out…for both sides.

And the announcement the Devils make? They've trade Butcher to Buffalo for future considerations.

This is the kind of tree that people were criticizing yesterday. Now that we got rid of Butcher by doing it, everyone OK?

Think it was just about getting his cap hit off the books.  Hamilton and Smith have made him completely obsolete.
