Can't complain about Zubrus, even if I thought the term was wayyyy too long for someone like him but he's a key piece that's very underated around here.

Regarding Clarkson, we signed him on the cheap didn't we not, so I don't see the point of bringing him up cause we didn't spend over 10M$ like we did with #7 and Anton. See Clarkson when talking about Bernier, Harrold and Butler.

The only real gem Lou pulled out of his hat was Moose, I'll give him that.

Put in Fayne instead of #7 and Volch becomes our weakest d-men. It's just reality, nothing more.

Parise left and that's just fine. I don't remember me talking about Parise in the first place, since he didn't resign with us.
right...and im saying for every boneheaded contract he does sign, theres a million he doesnt. i.e. parise

We gave Parise a pretty solid offer and if Lou would've broke the bank like the Wild did, who knows, he would probably be here today. Lou did offer him a outrageous deal, Parise just chose a bigger one and signed elsewhere.

It's not like he didn't offer him a deal, wich seems to be what your implying.

Not if nobody ever finds out. This is the Devils, they can keep just about anything they want from going public.

Someone made the joke after the 5-1 loss at Pittsburgh that all of our defensemen are playing like crap. To purposely play like crap so their trade values goes down, and they don't get traded away. Clearly Tallinder is either doing this or he's done.

I would agree with you but with the amnesty that would only hurt his value on his next contract. If he was Volk and signed for three years that would make sense but he would literally take millions out of his pocket if he was doing that this year

They're insane for playing him tomorrow. Take him out tomorrow, and put him back in Sunday if it's a must. Ovy was passing him around like a dirty magazine, and even superstar Troy Brouwer was having fun with him at one point.

I was trying to defend him before yesterday, but yesterday was bad. Maybe he needs to sit one more time to get his head straight but we can't have such a liability I won't be harsh and say he is done but he is making mental mistakes. it isn't talent as much as it seems to be confidence he seems to always go for the wrong side of oncoming players

Imagine if this was Montreal, and a Fayne-type was getting scratched daily there. Good god, the speculation that would be going on would be almost laughable. This is where we're 'lucky' nobody really pays attention, other than when we scratch Kovy for being late to team meetings.

Speaking about players from the UFA period, I think Lou knows what kind of players this team needs. We need big-bodied strong wingers whose strengths are along the boards.

Just some guys from this UFA period that fit that:

Antropov
Horton, unfortunately, he shoots right, if he was a lefty, I would love to see Horton-Zajac-Kovalchuk.
Clowe, shoots left too.

Honestly, that's it for the realistic wingers, didn't include Iginla. There's the abundance of guys like Ponikarovski, but those are really the only guys that have some sort of top six ability.

Edit: i remember the devils putting up a poll on facebook between, "get your jersey on" and "the devils made me do it" and i could have sworn "devils made me do it" won and it was never used.

I love that "Jersey's Team" is back. I could never get into "Get Your Jersey On".

And "Red Alert" has been an awesome playoff theme. Those air raid sirens get me amped.

I hope after we leave Saturday (with a win) he can get something on track. Want to see him succeed.
Met Oates in a bar (in boston this hole in the wall place)when he played there. Bought us a round of beers and talked hockey for a half hour,,,was very cool just like a regular guy hanging out.

I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can find Lokti's draft video? I understand since we weren't the ones who drafted him people here might not know but I wanted to ask anyways. I'm curious to find out what was said about him when he was drafted.
(I also know this is probably the wrong thread to ask this, but I figured it couldn't hurt. Feel free to move if need be.)

I'm pretty sure i've seen a "Get your Jersey on" sign in the penalty box this season. Also pretty sure I saw it at the Rock last time I was there
