We are the oldest team in the league.

We are built to win now.

Win now.

He was being paid 6 mil each of the last two seasons. The 11 mil starts this year.

Iginla and Hartnell would be great additions. Scotty will definitely be getting a pay raise though. Depending on Clarkson's year I could see him as a good replacement.

Were the devils, we always try to win

but I would prefer to win in 2014 when we have to surrender the 30th pick

We defs should sign semin, and anyone else we can get, for a one year deal, then watch all this talent go to market and build our team as we want

Don't know how many of you follow Devils Army Blog on twitter but they're basically going all Eklund on everyone with Semin to NJ rumors. Say there's a 80-85% chance it happens.

Seems like they are more legitimate than your average fraud. Let's see what happens.

But they aren't affiliated with the Generals so who are they?

I'm going to go with the standard Devils fan response:

If there's this much buzz that its happening, I highly doubt it will.
I've been surprised by Lou many, many times before though.. so who knows...

If it's the same guy running that thing that I think it is, it's almost definitely not true then. Or if it is true, they have no way of knowing it.

Well that is disappointing. Think how much fun we're gonna have if we get him...

It'll take a stroke of genius though.

I like them on facebook and they have been pumping rumor tweets all day, but none of their sources seem that reliable. Mostly the same stuff that was posted earlier by Ekuland and someone else.

I think there might be a little fire around all this smoke with at least an inquiry of interest, but no one really knows because the good sources have been dead silent on this. Wait and see.

All jokes aside, I'd actually like him to be on our team.

The jokes are a hell of a bonus though.

They are notorious re-posters...

Yeah you were/are a General right? I feel like the twitter account is getting a bit into yellow journalism territory these days. Seems pretty confident in a Semin signing though (although it's saying a 2-3 year offer is on the table which I can't believe he'd sign).

In order for him to be successful, we need Semin shooting all over on the ice.

"Well we have a somewhat update from @HockeyMoves. Semin certainly has interest NJD. If a deal is to happen(seems unlikely tonight), could be 2-3 years in length. This will be watched very closely. -Sully"

Seems you guys have more of an idea about their blog. This just posted on facebook. I am really not buying a 2-3 year deal (though I'd do a tap dance if it was true). No other news to go on.
