Thats an insane contract for a 29 year old that plays the game the way he does.

after seeing what clarkson got, i'm not all that surprised. imo, the $ is fine...but the term is long. especially since he'll be 30 when the contract starts.

He's 28 now, so 29 when that contract starts. The term is what is bad, not the AAV. If thats a 5 year deal for $5.75, not so bad.

It's their captain and one of their best players...are they supposed to let him walk?

So the choice is 8 year contract or walk?

well, his b-day is november, so he turns 30 about a month after the season starts. in any event, i agree the term isn't great...but they didn't really have a choice. clarkson got a 7 year deal and so did horton...i'm sure brown would have gotten the same if he'd become a UFA. there was no reason for him to agree to only 5.

Or 5yrs and 7mil+? Probably. Look at his moey in the first 4-5 years.

7.25 7.25 7.0 6.5 5.5...5.5 4 4

The Kings can not afford a 7mil cap hit.

Dale Tallon

How do you rate Dale Tallons go of it in Florida so far?

Awfully hard to build a decent team if your ownership won't spend to the cap. I think he made a mistake in taking the Florida gig. He should of waited for a better team to give him a job offer.

per Pierre LeBrun, the Devils have signed Jagr to a 1 year contract that they'll announce on Tuesday.

I lose more and more respect for Jagr each season he doesn't sign with the Penguins.

Why would you lose respect for a guy for not signing with a team with -$498,333 cap space?

That's -, a negative.

I know it's not, but the point was that Pittsburgh was NOT going to offer him a contract anyway. So in your opinion, he should just not play?

He's giving our bad contracts to spend to the cap floor... Lets see how some of his draft classes go

I think he's doing fine so far. He needs some time to let these high picks grow-up in to star NHLers. Particularly Huberdeau and Barkov.

It's been three years now. That's my point.

What difference does that make? They don't want him. Not that he'd go there either way, but it takes 2 to tango. Or something like that.

Devils seemingly on the verge of getting sold to a local group:

Devils getting older and older. This team will take the spot the Oilers had the last few years. Sucks to get a Lotto pick next season and get that pick taken away

Devils will not be getting a lotto pick with Schneider and Brodeur as their goalies.
