I don't care what anyone says he's better than Eminger and some of those guys on Inferno's list. If we can give 1.5 for 1 year and he gets his 1.5 from the Debbies on the buyout he still makes his 3 mil and we get a discount. I just don't see any negative to looking into it. A win/win for NYR and a lose/lose for NJD.
He's getting 2 mil from the devils, spread over 2 years.
The money is tight as it is. If both MZA and Erixon make the team, we'll have to carry 22 players. White might help, but signing him at this point would be a mistake. Let the kids battle it out with Eminger for the 5/6 spots. If only 1 makes it, carry 6 dmen. If 2 make it, Eminger becomes the 7th.
We have all year until the trade deadline to add a dman if it becomes a problem.
