No I don't mind the whole being slow thing. He was always slow. Just the "pace has become too fast for him" comments. I think there was some quotes about that from Chere, before the signing broke.

Ok, I've complained about the contract, but after watching this, I can get on board the Clowe Man Bear train. Honestly, wtf at 1:09 of this video. That's priceless.

Edit: If you guys are looking for evidence of sloweness, all you need do is watch the 'highlight' of him posterizing a Canuck (Salo?) at the end of the video on a 'breakaway'. Looked like a washing machine going past a bucket of cement driving to the net.

I went to nhl.com videos and looked at almost every goal he scored in the last 2 years. Clowe has a good shot, which I never realized. Also he scores alot of goals by just sitting in front on the net and getting garbage goals

With the signing of Clowe and Ryder, the Devils have 40% of the NHL players born in Newfoundland.

Lou's trying to corner the market. Teddy Purcell is next.

He also criticized Lou for drafting Vasyunov and said Vasyunov "flamed out."

The fact that people bother arguing with him boggles my mind. At least DATW is fun to rile up.

I'm still about that comment.

I still don't think Tundra ever apologized about it either...

If we get 3 years of a healthy Clowe doing what Clowe does when healthy, I'll be more than happy with this signing. I always wanted a Clarkson type if Clarkson eventually left, and Ryane Clowe is exactly the guy I wanted. For now I'm just happy to have him.
I agree for all the reasons you said. Plus it was a needed move with Clarkson leaving. We don't have anyone in the system to fill that hole. So Lou did what was nessecary bevause he plans to be very competitive next year.

The question I keep asking myself is, "Who would you rather have at $4.85x5, Clarkson or Clowe?"

And the answer is always Clowe.
We'll worry about years 4 & 5 when we get, there.

Hopefully his game can mature as well as Zubrus' has.

Love his confidence . Playing with a chip on his shoulder

Quote:
“I know,” Clowe told The Star-Ledger. “I’ve heard people say, ‘That’s a long deal for him. Probably not what the Devils should have done. They should’ve given him a two or three-year deal.’ It’s the fact that I had a season last year I didn’t want to have and then I finished with an injury coming into free agency.

“I have to prove other people wrong and prove myself right, I guess. I feel great. I’m 30 years old and I feel like I’m entering my prime. I feel like I have a lot of good hockey ahead of me. There is no concern from me. At the end I know I will prove the Devils right.”

We'll see when we get the full contract terms, but the 5th year may bring his cap hit down.

He'll have a Salvador esque return.

I think he's an upgrade from Clarkson, Clarkson 2.0 with upgraded skating patch.

Something that vanished last year. Seemed we never had anyone in front of the net to clean up the garbage.

Love that one of the highlights in that goodbye video is Clowe wrecking Moose in the shootout. Hey maybe we will win a few skills competitions this year.

If you think Clowe's deal sucks I'll give you some perspective. We will likely have Volchenkov for at least four years at roughly 600K less a year than Clowe. His defense at even strength has been far below average and he brings minimal offense. Clowe will bring some offense and I think will be more than serviceable for at least four years if he remains healthy.
