People keep asking about cap room. It's not that. They have a budget in real dollars for 2012-13. $11 mil will go to Kovalchuk.
By this point I kind of just want Zach to walk. He's not going to be completely worth the salary he is going to get. Much rather use the money for other smaller pieces.

Garrison doesnt really bowl me over.

(Yet) Another somewhat overrated player IMO.

Garrison is actually a good defenceman in his own end, i could even see him replicating his offensive stats on that Vancouver team. 4.6M is a pretty good deal when you consider his age, production and how much other FA's are getting. That gives Vancouver a very nice top four with Garrison, Edler, Hamhuis and Bieksa.

I don't think the Devils are actively looking to keep him. Lou probably just told Salvador to come back to talk to him once he gets all his offers. Lou's done that before with guys who he knew he really couldn't sign for one reason or another (Gionta comes to mind).

If Salvador comes back, somebody is getting moved sooner or later.

I'm forever surprised when I see people post Eklund stuff.

Because to me, it's sortof like publicly announcing you have a low IQ, or at least that you read checkout counter tabloids.

it may be weak, but I wouldn't risk it for Hemsky.

1) $5 million cap - we have a budget and I rather use that money on someone that else and I seriously don't find Hemsky a $5 million player.

2) injury-prone

3) you also have to trade assets which I don't want to trade someone if it's going to be for Hemsky.

CBA has to fix the whole process of signing free agents.

Mid level players are getting 4-6 years. Top players are getting 7-15 years. 4th liners are getting 1-4 yers.

The way I see it, role players should be getting 1-2, mid-level 3-4, and top notch 5-7. The fact that you can frontload 12+ year contracts just bothers me.

As would I. I'd take Hudler at this point on something like what parenteau got. At the end of the day there's three spots open on the top 9. Hemsky could come cheap as they are looking for defenseman.

Agreed. I think his play in the playoffs against us is part of what's made a lot of us really into him. I however am not really into him.

What smaller pieces? They re-sign Zach and the goalies, and they are one (probably minimum salary) forward away from a full roster

Parise - Zajac - Kovalchuk
Elias - Henrique - Zubrus
?? - Yayo - Clarkson
CBGB
Janssen

Zidlicky - Tallinder
Green - Fayne
Larrsson - Volchenkov
Harrold

We should go after Semin instead! He's better than Parise!

The Teddy-Jajo-Clarky line was quite good when together two years ago.

That's true. I guess I was thinking more about in a year or two. Just don't like the idea of so much money going to just two players

If the Devils have offers in similar to the big money offers being reported I wonder if they are banking on a salary rollback in the next CBA

I never payed much attention to Garrison, but is his defense any good?

Seems like he's getting a Finger contract here, one good year and cashing in big time.

I don't see any way the NHLPA agrees to another rollback. Not with Fehr in charge. They might agree to some other things, but I can't see a rollback.

I also don't think the Devils are anything close to what the Wild and Flyers are rumored to have offered in terms of overall value and front-loading.

Yes, he's very competent in his own end. He's not a one trick pony and he has size. In comparison to the money being thrown around to the likes of Wideman and Kuba, his deal isn't too bad. The Canucks get a guy who can replace Salo and play close to 20 minutes a night.

Hudler and Semin are probably waiting for Parise. They are this years consolation prizes and will probably make bank. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the three ends up on the Devils.
