I've said you dont need to sign stars and a bottom feeder most likely wont sign a star player.

Florida was competitive without stars.

So, the teams that signed players for equal money are big spenders but the Islanders aren't despite offering the same amount of money...

Ehroff was also offered huge pay by the Islanders

No action from the lenders thus far is a good sign that Vanderbeek is doing something right. Why accept bankruptcy and risk getting bought by someone like Charles Wang? I would rather have VBK remain the owner. He is actually willing to spend.
Coming to terms with the lenders, in this case, basically has been saying the Devils saying "**** you, I'll pay what and when I want."

That's not a good situation if they ever need money again from lenders...

Martin and Hamhuis were the players who were highly sought after. You can tell by the teams they went to and the contracts they received. Both got paid and went to winners.

Did Florida sign a top UFA last year? Nope. They went after Bergeron and the like. They stocked up on solid vets.

Boyes and Visnovsky is a step in the right direction, but thats only this year.

Florida was not a good team last year, despite them nearly beating us.

And filing for bankruptcy is a better way to get money from lenders, should we ever need it again?

What you mean they were not a good team? They won their division. Just because they were not a cup contender, doesnt mean they werent good.

Im aware it was a trade. Those are the types of moves they should be making, not going after the top UFAs who garner attention from top teams and will make the money they receive anywhere

No idea who owns this account or who the rumored buyer is but.

jonathan davis @westcoasthky

A source close to the situation has confirmed to #westcoasthky that CDN businessman Bill Gallacher is close to purchasing the#devils


Apparently he owns the Portland Winter Hawks and at 1 time was trying to buy Dallas ?

Dennis Bernstein @DennisTFP

Note on Bill Gallacher report to buy #Devils - legit player, was finalist on Stars and lost out to Gagliardi bid.

Actually... yes.

Finance is a tricky place. I'm glad I don't work there.

Thy WERE a good team in the playoffs.
Probably would have knocked off Philly and a few other teams if they had played them.

I really hope he buys us.

"Gallacher is the chairman of the board for Athabasca Oils Sands, Corp. - a company he started and recently took public after a $1.9 billion investment from PetroChina. He also is the president of Avenir Capital Corp., a Calgary-based company that helps finance energy and real estate investments. Gallacher also is the owner of the Portland Winterhawks, a Major Junior hockey team, and has helped rebuild it in only three years."
