Basically this. I have no problem because he has great chemistry with Kovy and is good in all assets of the game

Devils would've had almost $32 million in cap space next year with a 64m cap.

Not even remotely a concern

Devils have no money.... Opps!

Can never win with the mooks on this board. First we are going bankrupt, then we overpay, what is the next conspiracy?

In a division with Crosby, Giroux, and Tavares at the pivot the Devils locked up the best two way center in the game.

This is less than a 2M increase in his cap hit for a guy moving to a UFA contract from an RFA one

I have zero problems with that

I don't see Elias taking a pay cut. He's still worth $6 million a year.

Anyways good for the Devils to get Zajac locked up long-term. $5.75 million seems about right for a guy as good as Zajac is.

He's a good player, but nowhere close to the "best two way center in the game".

I'll join others in congratulating Devils fans. A little high on the money (not a ton) but he is a solid player who just fits everything Devils.

Good job keeping him.

For those talking about the decreasing Cap, wait 'til you see what it looks like 4-5-6 years from now. Think it's going to remain stagnant? Think again.

No he's not...what are you smoking? He'll be like 37. He'll certainly get his due for his loyalty and what not, but he's not getting 6 million a year.

Where's the discount for the Devils by giving him 8 years? 5.75m for Zajac at that term is way too much. Would hate to see what he would have gotten for a 6 year deal...6.3m?

Top-10 in scoring last year and he's not worth $6 million? Ok then.

Probably "I wish I was headed to UFA like Zajac was".
