If it was so bad, would Lou be able to buy out players contracts ala Boulton?

Lou won't be here until the end of Parise's contract, I understand his fear. But I don't think we'll ever be an uncompetitive team.

I wish I could be this naive.

If Parise picks the Penguins, he'll claim credit, but that doesn't mean he had inside info on it.

If Devils lose both Salvador and Parise they'll catch hell getting to the cap floor. Unless they give Brodeur 6 million for next year.

Incarcerated Bob, some clown on Twitter who claims he has inside sources and maybe he has a few but mostly just throws darts up at a dartboard and claims he knows everything. And if Zach did pick the Penguins 'already' why would he wait almost a full day before making it official? Stupidity.

Gotta feel for the fans of that team. They haven't even seen a remotely competitive team in their entire history.

So basically Marty was right all along.

'He'll be here if they fix what they want to fix'.

And they haven't fixed it. **** Vanderbeek, should have just sold the team outright and this wouldn't be an issue

Devils lose Parise and Salvador and sign Brodeur to only a one year deal they'll have ungodly cap space for next year. That is unless they do something stupid like give Semin or Oli Jokinen a long term deal.

Elias, Zubrus, Zidlicky, Zajac, and Clarkson come off the books next year too. I would assume they'd do what they can to re-sign Clarkson and Zajac but who knows if they'd want to stay.

The only thing he has been hit on is peyton manning. From the neck injury to being out for the year to asking to be released and to eventually signing with denver

If he signs with the pens tmrw bob will be like see I'm right again. But he said pens already signed him which obviously isn't true.

Listen, if Parise and Brodeur both bolt, reality has to set in that Lou doesn't know what the **** he is doing any more. IFIFIFIFIFIF both leave, it is clearly financially related (duh), which the organization easily could have seen coming. In other words, what I am getting at is why the **** did we keep our first this year knowing the team would undoubtedly be worse next season?!

Again, ififififififif.

Seriously. It's the same thing as me saying I have sources and claiming Suter is a done deal in Detroit right now. There's a very strong chance it happens, then I brag about it all over and get followers.
