Zajac IS a product of the system, right?

No.

He's not as good as most 3rd line centres defensively and his offense is purely a product of Parise.

Also, his contract will cause the next lockout.

Seriously, go read the trade board thread. It's a whole world of ****.

I think he meant he was asking whether Zajac was brought up through the Devils' farm system.

The main board is absolutely embarrassing. So many idiots. It's like all they do is look at his nhl.com page and form their opinion. It's really infuriating lol

Let them because they can say whatever they want now. If Zajac signed with the teams they rooted for they would have no problem saying what a deal it was or great signing.

I'm sure many teams are pi**ed over contract limits now that the new rules in part led to our keeping him, and bitter that he wouldn't have stayed if the market didn't compel it. All of those ****ers wanted to get their grubby paws on him

If only the contract limits had come a year sooner.

****ing love this. Really made my day at work.

Been saying for a few years now that Zajac is our best player. He has everything you want to play his position. Love all the negative vibes coming towards the Devils again. Maybe they will pay more attention to Zajac now and see why this is a great deal for the Devils.

Losing Zajac would be ten times worse than leaving Parise.

I don't know why you people bother with the main board anymore. A giant hive of stupid.

Anyone who doesn't know what he means to the devils knows nothing about the game.

Was about to go to the Zajac thread on the main board. But talked myself out of it.

I find it hilarious that most of the people who are bashing this on the main board are fans of Western Conference teams that have seen Travis play like 2-3 games in his career. Edmonton fans in particular, comparing this deal to Eberle and Hall (why.jpeg)

Most fans of eastern teams are like "yeah, maybe two years longer or a half a mil more than expected, but solid deal for the Devils." Which is a fair comment to make, though I disagree.

The thread is like midget porn:

You know it'll be stupid and gross, but it's still worth the laugh.

Zajac will be back to his normal 60pt pace/great pking/selke-like self this season. Someone without a doubt would've given him more on the open market..

I always tell myself never to engage in a battle with people who are perpetually stuck in their own personal ass/elbow conundrum.

I don't know whether to be impressed or by those of you continually entertain yourself with the ongoing stupid in some of the main board threads
I try and bow out before I get sucked into those cesspools if I do decide to comment.

Anyway, another thing to take away from those who are criticizing this contract...
A lot of them are fearing how this affects market value and upcoming FAs on their own team.

Too many RFAs are trying to skip the 2nd contract and dive head first into their payday. Every competent young player is now a "rising star"
If they have a GM who isn't smart enough to figure out that they can't throw around $5mil+ contracts for the hell of it anymore, that's not any of our problems.

And let's not forget, Jordan Staal was just signed for 10/60, who I think Zajac is absolutely better than..

I don't see why people would be worried about us driving up prices, Lou has given somewhat traditional 2nd contracts pretty consistently throughout his tenure as GM. It's teams like the Oilers who give 6 mill to every young RFA that I'd be worried about.

Also, Zajac's contract should have no bearing on being a precedent for 2nd contracts seeing as how it's his 3rd, which most of the main board seems to have forgotten.

It's funny reading comments in articles

"He only had 44 points in 10-11 and 6 points last year!!. No wonder we had a lockout"

Actually was thinking a 6 year 5.25 deal would have been more than reasonable.
