Just wanted to go back and show my support for this statement since my original support got lost in the last thread.

If we are unable to spend to the cap every year then his caphit could be 12 cents and it wouldn't make a difference if we can't spend the actual money to make it worth it.

Until we actually spend the cap space, the great cap hit that Kovy provided to us means nothing.

I wouldn’t say I have an inside source. more of a friend of a friend of a friend thing. I texted him last night, and heard back that lou is not going to sit on his hands (as I once feared he might). we’re going to see some BIG changes this offseason…personally, I cant wait, I hope this is true.

the better news (for me, anyway lol) is that im 95% assured of meeting the man himself at the draft, getting a picture and more than likely sitting by his suite seats for the home opener. yay me

Letang is certainly not awful

but he is also certainly not going to be worth the $7+ million he wants/gets

We also had a few people on here with "direct inside sources" that said Parise was going to sign a long term deal any day. Then he signed a one year offer and bolted the next year.

Grain of salt... But I hope your right.

Flyers picked up the rights to Streit from the Isles.

The fact that the Flyers might be saddled with another 35+ year old parking meter that our wings will be skating around for the next 5 years at $5m per might be the best news I've heard all day.

I'm surprised they would give anything for the rights instead of just negotiating with him when he is a UFA in a few weeks. Any team that gives him over $4m/1yr is pretty silly.

He can be a bit of an adventure in the d zone sometimes, but he's one of the best skating d-men in the league and will put up 50-60pts every year. He's exactly what the devils need on the back end...

Try not to hold players to the what have you done for me lately schtick. Otherwise Crosby had a bad ECF so should no one want him?

I agree. If there's any team where he can turn his defensive game around it's the Devils. I mean, if we could make Zids look somewhat serviceable defensively and Letang is a LOT better than him in my opinion.
Not really sure if I'd be happy with the price tag attached to Letang, but he is a guy we need. Pair him with Larsson or Greene, or someone who can back him up.
