When the time bomb clock hits zero tomorrow, this board is going to melt.

Epic gif party or massive overreaction about how we're broke and will be a ping pong ball team next season..

probably got a longer term in Vancouver too. That is quite a contract for him.

I'd ask TG, but I'm sure he won't reveal his source. If it really is a competitive offer, then with us having the advantage of familiarity, I'm cautiously optimistic in our chances of keeping him.

Remember, he's determining the course of the rest of his career now. He knows the Devils have taken good care of him, he knows it's his team, he knows that Lou will always keep the team competitive. He wouldn't have to move, and he'd be beloved to the fanbase forever. Does that trump the extra money or the possibility of playing with Crosby? I don't know, but it's possible if the offers are competitive.

They aren't, but since many teams are going after both, people might have assumed that.

Would love to hear the conversation between him and his fiance tonight....Her input is huge in this. Let's hope she loves NJ enough.

When people say we will get to match that isn't true. We know we can never match top dollar it's about getting into the ballpark because it will take a home town discount of some sort whether in dollars or structure to keep him.

I also think its possible with what we have heard and obviously our offer wasnt peanuts.

Hope some of the chicken littles came back to earth. Marty has no plans to leave and we are still in it with Zach moose and Sal.

Someone needs to bribe her

If she wants to stay, they stay. I'll get people to vouche for that undoubtedly.

Also, I don't really want sal back unless we make a trade.

Zachs gonna be rich no matter what, might as well be rich and happy...he's been happy here and he knows what to expect (comfort). He's he captain, he likes the coach and staff, respects Lou immensly, and we play a style suited to his game. The team has missed the playoffs once in the past 15 years. The committment to winning is there and as this year showed, just get to the playoffs and you have a chance. "Great" teams like Pitt and Van went out in the first round, the NYR didn't make it to the finals..etc. It's about the team, not the stars....Zach should know that after all this time in NJ

What would you bribe her with?

A shopping spree?

Pretty much, ya. I expected it to happen today, but it looks like tomorrow will be the descent into the madhouse instead. Either he signs and half of us get banned, or he leaves... and half of us get banned.

Indeed. I'm confident she does like NJ, but is that enough to convince Zach to stay for a bit less money?

Nothing good can ever come from upsetting the wife.

the 2013 draft crowd could potentially get out of hand if the penguins get him

the rangers, flyers and penguins will be booed to no end when they make their picks...

I was thinking about this the other day, but I really don't know how much input she has.

Regardless of where he signs, she will probably never have to work another day in her life.
