I may have read wrong, but I thought that the CBA states if the 1st half of the contract < 2nd half, the variance is allowed to be the same as the old CBA.

When I click the link I first thought....we better not get fined for this!!!!

Especially with something they have worked all offseason. Shows they have absolutely zero inside knowledge of the Devils.

Love Lou.
Agreed. The Devils have fewer leaks than a nuclear silo. Love how Lou can still control information about his team over the course of months in this era of instant communication.

Please post here more often. We can even trade Abo to the Canucks board in exchange. He won't help your team win more, but he will at least make you laugh.

I think you're right. Zajac is a core player, and as Lou said, he is a true Devil. He embodies the ethos of the team as a great two-way, hard-working player.

Other players see a guy like that signing up to keep that ethos here past when Lou retires, past when Marty retires, and past when Patty retires, and they know the continuity of the club has just received a big boost. Definitely should impress the kids.

The new CBA says that if the contract doesn't fall under the category of a "front loaded contract" you go by the terms of the prior 100% rule in old CBA.

Aah! Okay, I gotcha. Thanks for answering my question.

It's disconcerting when I'm being ignored after asking a question.

I bet Boomer's royally pissed Zajac didn't test free agency and sign with his Rangers. I'm guessing it's sour grapes on his end, with so-called popular opinion to back those sour grapes up.

Also, why did I see a pic of Carton wearing a Devils jersey? Is he actually a fan or did he lose a bet?

Carton's the dumbest sports personality I've ever seen talking hockey. Saw an episode of theirs in between games 5, and 6 of the ECF. He started talking, and was one of the most ignorant idiots I've heard. He said Marty's goaltending was bad, and every goal he let in was soft in game 5. Even the Prust breakaway where Marty missed the pokecheck.

He also ripped Lundqvist, and said the king played like the queen. While it was funny hearing him rip Lundqvist he still sounded like an idiot. He blamed every goal the Devils scored on Lundqvist including the one that went off a skate in front, and the Carter one as well. He also blamed Lundqvist for letting in that goal from Kovy that was waived off for a high stick which is beyond stupid.

Eh. Carton never claimed to be a Hockey fan. Quite to the contrary, every time someone brings up the NHL, he hits one of several "NOBODY CARES ABOUT HOCKEY!" buttons. He's kind-of forced to discuss it, so I give him a pass. Boomer, on the other hand, is a blatant Rangers homer who never gives the Devils (or the Isles) a fair shake, despite being on the Devils radio network.

I watched a game with the Islanders last year, and saw Boomer at the game. They showed him at one point during the game. I was under the impression he was an Islanders fan until I actually saw commercials during the Devils games promoting their show, and he was talking about the Rangers.

Carton is annoying, and when I first saw him I thought the guy was Agassi! The tennis player!

I really don't care what any outsiders think about this contract. Period.
We have our No.1 C, great PKiller, Kovy's proven great linemate locked basically forever.
Life is good.

I've just came to the conclusion they're slagging us for this cause it's the first extension in the new CBA. It was the first contract to test that 8 year limit. So it's gonna stick out just like Kovy's 15 year contract did. There is also the Devils factor which much of the mainstream hockey universe seems to follow. That's why we're still hearing it about Kovy, but not about Parise/Suter.

Zajac is Pippen to Kovy's Jordan. This is a great signing. The mainstream sports media does not need to validate this for me.

I've known of Carton for a long time, a decade or so, since I used to listen to him on the 101.5 radio show "The Jersey Guys" (he's not even from Jersey, wtf.) - he's pretty funny, when he wants to be.

As for Boomer, he's from Long Island and he's done a few things with the Islanders, for charity, but he's an older guy who was already a Rangers fan before NY had two teams, so he refused to switch over. Hence, his strong affinity for the Rags. When you're living on Long Island and your local team that you're not rooting for wins four cups, it only makes you stronger in supporting the other team, methinks.

The Blueskirts can have a QB who lost in the Super Bowl and Spike Lee. We've got Kevin Smith and WWE Hall of Famer Edge.

I loved the TSN interview where Rex talked about the Leafs for more than half of it, and how they were doing good but missed the playoffs again!

Haha you guys are all talking about the wrong Boomer. The guy on XM's NHL Network is Jim Boomer Gordon. He's actually a fairly knowledgeable hockey guy. I think he just dislikes long term contracts in general, and the "optics" of the first contract under the new CBA being max length. Generally I respect his opinions, but on this one I have to completely disagre.
