Zubrus re-signs with NJ - 3 Years, 3M AAV

@TGfireandice

Three more years for Zubrus in NJ; Talks continue with Clarkson, but no contract specifics yet: http://t.co/FgYMwI3k8U

Good signing NJ.

Not crazy about the third year but I can live with it. Look forward to having a healthy Kovy, Marty, Fayne and Zubes next year

Keep getting older Devils. They need to retool like the Rangers did.

Two things you need to know about Zubrus:

1.) He loves coffee.



2.) His taste in music is awful.

What the hell? Getting older? At least do A LITTLE research before you make a post on a subject you clearly know nothing about...

Great news. I'd hoped for one less year and a few hundred thousand less dollars, but I'm more than content with this.

I'm actually ok with the 3rd year. He's not a fast skater anyway so his game is based around it. He's also got an ok skill set that I don't think will wear down that much as he gets older.

Zubrus, that's a guy that seems to be in the NHL since for ever.

Excellent news, he's still a solid core player and an even better teammate. He will help mentor Matteau and hopefully help mold him into a similar type of player.

Would have been shocked if he didn't sign a new contract with the Devils.

This guy was absolutely dominant against the Flyers in the 2011-12 playoffs. I don't know if his injuries last year will affect him in the future, though. Once you get into the mid-30s, it seems like guys have a tougher time bouncing back from injuries. Still, Zubrus is a versatile player that should be good for 10-15 goals and 30-40 points every year. He's great on the forecheck with his huge frame.

great news! its a little expensive, but worth it to keep him around. he seems like a good mentor for the young guys and is perfect for DeBoer's puck control system

Let's see. Rangers have "retooled" and reached the Finals how many times? But of course they're younger (and shinier)!

Never mind results, it's DOB that matters.

I agree.

So very true.

Zubs is still a good player. He makes alot of room for other players on the rink.
