Anyone that goes by the name of "Boomer" shouldn't be taken seriously, period.

Who is this Boomer guy and why should I or anybody else care what he has to say about Zajac`s contract extension?

What I love to see is that we now have 3 young centers to build around in Zajac, Henrique, and Josefson. Patty can also play center in a pinch and do it very well (minus faceoffs).

Add on top of that, a superstar winger in Kovy who will attract the best of the opposition night in and night out. He handled it last year and I see no reason why he won't be able to handle it again this year. He is in game shape and ready to go. What's scary for other teams is that Patty is the secondary guy....in a contract year. He had a dynamite year with Sykora and Zubrus as his wingers. Expect another good year from Patty.

I said in one of the main board threads to watch out for Josefson this year. He will have some opportunities to make an impact. He looked real good, at times, last year. If things pan out for him, he will be a top playmaker for this team in the not so distant future. Getting Henrique back eventually will also be a boost for this team. We can spread things out a bit more.

I am not worried, at all, about the defense. A good mix of veteran and youth for the Devils. Really hoping that Larsson can really break out this year. The D corps should be the most consistent aspect of the team this season. Should see a good mix of Marty and Moose, too. Both have aged like fine wine. Give Marty 30-35 games and life is good.

Have to give some props to Lou for locking up Shanahan. It ensure we'll have one of the best defensive forwards in the game up until the next lockout (please no). I think Kovy and Trav will have some real good years together. Now it's just a matter of filling out the second and third line. I think Lou may have a trick up his sleeve at some point this season for some added help up front.
Yes good post! I think Lou has to have something up his sleeve after this. Maybe not Jamie Benn, but something.

This to me speaks a lot about Zajac. He's definitely gotta be the most loyal on this team next to Marty. He turned down the opportunity to go to UFA to stay with us. Not that I blame Patty for going to UFA that year, but Zajac snubbing unrestricted free agency is a big deal to me. I don't care what any of these people on the main board, or in the media say. Zajac would have gotten this or more this Summer, and that's especially if Getzlaf was locked up already.

A quarterback who never won a Super Bowl and is also a die hard ranger fan has plenty of good insight on what's good and what's bad for NJD.

I may be mistaken, but I think the XM Boomer refers to Boomer Gordon who I'm guessing also ragged on the contract.

Of course, I expect his credentials aren't any better.

**** Boomer. He broke Anthony Cumias arm when they were kids. Unforgivable!

Does anyone have the picture of the Henrique goal against the Rangers where Boomer Esiason is sulking in his chair as the entire section of Devil fans around him celebrate? He was the only Ranger fan in the shot. Perfect.

A different Boomer, but just like the NY Boomer, he knows just as much about Devils Hockey :

NOTHING.

Boomer Esiason wasn't even that great of a quarterback. Couldn't even lace up Elway, Marino, Young, Montana and even Phil Simms in those days. I watched a lot of football back in his day. Never liked him.

I think his claim to fame is that he threw for 500 yards once.

So did Matt Flynn.

485, close enough.

An interesting examination of Zajac's contract and how its year-to-year variance is governed by the old CBA rule and *not* the newly negotiated CBA rules for declination.

485 yards is still better than a made-up girlfriend

Is it safe to assume that even VINNY is better than Boomer?

That makes no sense.


I mean you just signed the NEW CBA. Why would they use the Old CBA's contract-rules?

Was not, and am not a Boomer fan either, but he did take the Bengals to the superbowl and lost on late Montana to Taylor TD pass.

And he's a solid Ranger fan who gives the Dev's their due. I would have been very surprised if it was he who ripped the signing.
