Why would Pitt make a sizable financial committment to another offensive player when they have clear defensive issues??? I think there could be a dark horse team like St. Louis or Winnipeg willing to overpay, but I really believe the devils are the MAJOR player if they want to be.
I think because of that, he goes to the KHL

A little sidenote while listening to the Bobby Holik Podcast :

Holik believes that Zajac would make a great captain.

I wish someone in this forum was close to Kovalchuk. He probably knows everything. When you get a 110 million deal for 15 years, you are practically management.

Clarkie is super loyal. He will take a paycut if needed.
Zubrus has a very good friend in our prospect pool in Matteau. They train together and have for a while now.
Elias may retire, but I feel he will take a 1-2 year 4mil deal.
Zajac, im worried. Dont let him get to UFA Lou

I doubt Clarkson takes a paycut and I doubt Lou even lowballs him. Based on his last contract he's going to give Clarkson $5+ caphit. I'm horrified thinking about it.

Zubrus and Elias should stay but maybe Zubrus tests the market so who knows.

Zajac...oh boy.

Winnipeg is going to throw Jordan Staal-like money at Zajac. I am definitely worried about him leaving.
