Think it'll be above 4 million, in all honesty.

If Zach leaves Semin is probably their best option, from hockey and cap standpoints

Now that Marty has an agent, if he signs for 6 million how much does the agent get? %15?

Yeah, but I'd rather pay him more money (and end up close to the team's internal budget) than add another year prematurely.

Average is 4-10% of playing contract.

Next off season we'll have Zajac, Zubrus, Zidlicky, Clarkson, Tedenby, Josefson, Henrique and Elias becoming FA's which is $21m or so coming off the books

if we have no money, doesn't his retiring after next year actually help us if 2 year deal? His non-paid salary would still count versus cap, which we can't spend to anyway

I'm sure its been posted already but I dont feel like sifting through a few pages:

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
And I think Marty Brodeur will be hard pressed to get better than the two-year deal NJ is now believed to be offering him to stay a Devil.

Lou got the man his $$

Not if there's a $5m need elsewhere in our lineup (and we can spend).

At this point, who cares? Marty obviously gained a confidence boost from reaching the SCF, and it's both a blessing and a curse.

I just hope this taught Lou to change his policies a bit about contract extensions mid-season. It won't though. No elderly Italian man changes his ways.

Assuming it's a 2 year deal at $4M per year, that's a nasty cap hit to swallow (>5%).

Zajac and Henrique will almost certainly be up for raises
Zidlicky, Elias, Zubrus will either be gone, retired, or be taking slight paycuts
Tedenby and Josefson are TBA based on this coming season
Clarkson will likely see a raise or potentially get moved

Yea, doesn't it count towards the cap anyway because it is a 35+ deal?

Looks like you were right about him needing two years.

I agree. If we can give Pandolfo his gold watch, we can give one to Marty too.

I want him tutoring Wedge for sure. Especially in puckhandling and the mental strength necessary to be successful.

Wow, seems like it was not worth it for him to get an agent if Lou signs him

honestly if Lou wants to wait for Wedge or KinKaid to be ready then Marty would have to play 2 years anyway I think so...
