I don't have high expectations for Brodeur nor do I expect him to leave the Devils. That being said, the clear pecking order is Suter then Doan. We miss out on those two and that cap space wallows away. Brodeur isn't going to sign more than a one year deal, so we might as well bring him in to duel Crow.

Personally, I'd like to see Bowman trade players/picks/prospects to LA for Bernier. It's better to fix that hole with someone who has age on his side.

What did I say about Jesse Rogers being worse than eklund? The 1.25 mil per # we heard came from Rogers. It's 2.5 mil per.

Jason Garrison is going to Vancouver. Awaiting confirmation on this one, but it's done.

And Souray is going to Dallas for 3 years, 11 million.

Bowman isn't having a good summer so far. His only good move was Tuevo falling down to #18.

Where are you guys seeing $2.5 per for Brookbank?

Brookbank will be paid $2.5 million over the two years, according to a source.
That's 1.25 per.

Yeah she quoted Jesse Rogers, who is the one that threw out the false 1.25 mil per crap to begin with. At tsn.ca's free agency chart, it shows it as a 2 year deal for 5 mil total.

Awful deal. So damn awful. This guy is a joke. He better come through with Brodeur and/or Suter or Doan or some combination. He's had a bad summer.

Watch Suter go to Detroit and us get Carle for $4 million. I could so see it, too.

Carle's going to get a lot more than 4 mil per IMO...unless he signs a real long deal.

Sound like they are either close to dealing hammer or doubt Montador's future

For as much as we are paying for our current defense, it really doesn't seem worth it.

And if we're giving Brookbank an atrocious amount of $2.5 million per, I at least hope we went after Allen for just $1 million more. Not sure if we went after him.
