Don't forget Mills. And Sestito.

Someone needs to put a hurtin on the Flyers first game of the season for all the tomfoolery they pulled in Game 5, don't want Baby Gio doing that...gotta be Cam.

Fact of the matter is, over the course of a long 82 game regular season, you're going to need your fighters at some point. Thus the need for someone like Janssen and Boulton in the lineup.

So Cam plays 30 games, 4 minutes each game. So Kovalchuk ends up playing 25+ minutes in those games to make up the difference. Yes, I like this plan much better than the competant 4th line we had in the playoffs who could play the sport, be physical, and *GASP* even score goals.

Can't we just get the guy season tickets behind the Devils bench and a locker room pass and let him do all the high-fives and "character" stuff he wants.

Honestly, I had my fill of the guy 6 years ago. I've seen enough.

Good signing. He's one of the best character guys and a solid enforcer. Welcome back, Cam!

Glad you're back Cam!
it bothers many because they feel that the 575k he is making is really Zach's money and now we wont have the 8-9mil that it will probably cost us to keep Zach here

Look on the bright side: this still leave the door open for us to trade him back to St. Louis for another top-4 defenseman.

I guess some teams still goon it up, but it just feel like Lou is afraid of going into any season with out a goon. Live it a little, jump out without a parachute.

Our 4th line was bat**** good during the playoffs, but I REALLY doubt they sustain that over an 82 game season.

You'll need an extra body to sub in during the season, I just don't understand why we have Boulton AND Janssen. One is plenty.

I really feel like Boulton will get waived. They already did it once last season, so it wouldn't surprise me if he spent the year in Albany.

In a way, some of these $575k salaries are necessary to hold a roster spot with an "NHL player" in the age of the salary cap.

for who?

I know you have better memories of him than me for other season's past, but I really do prefer Cam in the lineup than Boulton. Boulton took too many stupid penalties at the worst times and didn't really counter that with any "impact". Cam at least seemed to know how to throw a hit or 4 in his 3 minutes of ice time and get back to the bench and not the box.

That and I just like the way Cam barks back the linesmen during fights and tires out his opponent before going full beserker.

Sure I know Boulton has more goal potential, can handle more frequent shifts in theory, but I just didn't see it last season. I'd rather have pure energy guy Cam as our "thug" if we are dressing one.

The guy is the ultimate teammate, it's obvious that his team loves him. Even if he comes back to be the locker room jokester, I'm all for it. Cam is great.

Don't know who I would want Cam to go after first : Rinaldo for SlewFoot-Gate or Simmonds for his dirty hit on Zids and all-around jackass-attitude?

I feel like Cam walked into Lou's office with a piece of paper that says "I'll take minimum, boom, done.... Sign Here"
