The way I see it, the fact that we couldn't even offer Poni that seems that Lou is really focused on Zach and Marty.

1.8m? I don't get why we didn't match that, especially with the possibility of losing Parise.

Hope that includes Marty, and not just Zach. Screw all this forget Zach. Does Lou think we have money to compete with this front load stuff? Come on what's the Beek saying about this I wonder?

I'm ok with this. Poni was a good rental, but he's not a core piece. Good luck to him in Winnipeg.

Because Parise and Marty are more important?

no. 1.8m doesn't prevent us from signing Parise or Brodeur.

Or that Poni really wanted to go to Winnipeg. I find it hard to believe that's the best offer he could get.

Maybe not, but I'm pretty sure Lou is focusing on getting them both signed before bringing back another player who, quite frankly, is replaceable.

I'm going to echo njdevsfn95 here in saying :

"Thank you, Poni. Thank you for trolling the F out of Philly and their fans. May you assist the Jets fans in similar endeavors except when you face us".

Don't the devils have to spend at least 9 million more to reach the cap floor? Can't believe they are in this situation. I hate Vanderbeek

Doesn't guarantee, but it does raise his chances for sure.

I wanted him back here. Probably no interest from us cause all the focus is on Parise now. ****.

Would have liked to get him back, but I'm not particularly bothered by this. He was a good rental, had some very good games for us as well as some invisible ones.

Besides, this means there's a roster sot for Zharkov.

It's pretty ridiculous they went so far to circumvent the cap with the Kovalchuk contract only to be a budget team two years later

He didn`t want to wait, apparently. Good for him, best of luck in Winnipeg, Poni. You served the purpose.

Now go get Pyatt before they decide to stay in PHX. Please and thanks, Lou.

It's very possible he preferred to go to Winnipeg as opposed to coming back here too. I don't understand why so many people just assume if the Devils match an offer the player would definitely come back.
