Aw, there goes my hopes for Zajac on the Jets.

Finnish your Czech 01-16-2013 01:24 PM

I don't expect the price to be too high.

Tusk 01-16-2013 01:24 PM

Good for them! Like to see teams sign the players they develop long term.

Scottyk9 01-16-2013 01:24 PM

Thank you Lou, did not want to go through another Parise situation all year.

Dolph Ziggler 01-16-2013 01:25 PM

Good for the Devils. He was somebody I wanted the Blues to get in a perfect world scenario in FA.

Roo Mad Bro 01-16-2013 01:25 PM

Wonder what the terms are.

That was my expectation.

Lamoriello said they worked on contract with Zajac before lockout and finished it this week.

Bondys Champagne 01-16-2013 01:26 PM

So ****ing awesome

Devils Trap 01-16-2013 01:26 PM

Lol typical Lou

Zero pre rumors of this even happening

MountainGoat 01-16-2013 01:27 PM

we couldn't afford to lose him, he plays too important of a role

Stormcrow 01-16-2013 01:27 PM

4 years@4.5 mill is my guess.

I guess it's 5x5

caley 01-16-2013 01:29 PM

Good for the Devils. If they lost him this offseason, it would probably be time for a rebuild of sorts.

SLAPSHOT723 01-16-2013 01:30 PM

I watch a decent amount of Devil games, and I could never picture Zajac in another jersey. Parise I could, Zajac never.

I would assume 5+ years, too.

PayItForward 01-16-2013 01:30 PM

Great for the Devils.

Devils Trap 01-16-2013 01:30 PM

Thank God Lou

5years 5 mil sounds right to me

edit: This now puts him right into the mix of being named captain.

MountainGoat 01-16-2013 01:31 PM

6 years at 5.5M

''Asked how long Zajac's contract is, Lamoriello said, "long enough to keep him a Devil."

Devils never rebuild, they reload.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Devils sign Zajac to eight-year deal worth $46 million ($5.75 million average)

Great Job Lou. Anything under 6 is good in my book

SLAPSHOT723 01-16-2013 01:33 PM

Damn, that's a lot of dough.

Devils Trap 01-16-2013 01:34 PM

If a mod could edit the title and put the terms it would be greatly appreciated
