Just seems they maybe more confident at least otherwise this deal would be much shorter I am sure.

Zajac is actually the biggest signing news I think in the NHL thus far since the lockout ended. It's been a pretty slow week as far as trades/signings go.

Do these clowns realize we laugh at their posts on our board?

"Marty sucks now. You're screwed when he retires."

Uhhh what?

The funniest thing is reading posts on our division rivals boards. About how the Devils are screwed. They do realize we basically beat all of them on route to the finals last year don't they?

For 15 years "Marty stinks, product of the system!"

After those 15 years "Marty was a God, you'll be lost when he leaves!"

I had a Ranger fan tell me that there's no way a 40 year old goalie can carry a team to the finals.

I'm pretty sure that of the last 4 goalies to make it to the SCF, two of them were 40.

Just Marty I think. Roloson was like 41,42 but only went to the ECF.

Awesome news.

I think the $ is a TAD too high (.5M-.75M) but this deal is amazing when you look at the context here.

We won't be spending to the cap the next two years.. by the time we are spending to the cap again, 5.75M will be what a 4.5M contract is now.

Best thing though is my Rangers fan friend who tried to tell me Callahan is a better player than Zajac.. both offensively AND defensively. Defensively, maybe there's an argument but offensively?

Zajac and Kovy playing together for the next 9 years = change of pants

It seems anything we do we're gonna get called out on however much we sign someone for by these main board fools. If we pay Patty more than $2 million they'll ***** about it, if we pay Clarkson more than he's making now they'll complain about it.

I love the deal. There are few top Cs who I would consider trading for Travis. All worth more $$ and all with ??? when it comes to chemistry and playing with Kovy. So TravTrav gets exactly what he is worth to us.

Great signing, Zajac is one of the best two way forwards in the league. IMO hes captain material, and had a sick running man celly haha. Not surprised by all the haters on the main boards though, any signing made by any team other then their own, they think its the ********* deal of all time.

The future success of this team seems about 300x more secure now.

Solid D and solid C's to build around. Especially if Josefson can step up his offense and stay healthy. Not to mention our star winger to lean on.

Team feels playoff built to me.
