What kind of brainwashing do we need to start paying for to make these people think NJ is better than their own home?

Can we pay someone for that?


...will $50 do the trick?

yeah I know Ive never even seen the guy play other than on youtube... but he can release a shot pretty damn good and quick


this team now does have to go out and sign another forward. there is literally no pop in this lineup ....maybe ryder.. but this hurts our explosiveness and all takes one of our faster forwards off the ice on what is already a painfully slow set of forwards..

Honestly I sincerely believe the NHL rigs the draft for the devils if Kovy had the decency to announce his retirement before the draft lottery.

Or maybe I'm just crazy.

IDK what to think, but many Russian fans rumour that Kovy has serious spinal problems, and he could be playing less demanding game for couple more years at best.
He's in for a gross frontloaded money, and whole thing is arranged to help KHL image at any price. Kovy makes his money and gets to play as he sees it fit. Lou get's off the hook for cap hits that would hit Devils were he to retire in few years.
Everybody wins. Except Devils fans ...

I hope he gets chocked by a Russian polar bear. This is absolutely tragic and I feel like crying
This team will rebound and become a champion despite this ********. In Lou I trust.

Keep hoping buddy. My prediction is we lose him to waivers not long after the season begins. I'd take Whitney over that useless toothless at this point.

I think Yahoo posted the money, and TG retweeted and tweeted that SKA signed up but are going to announce tomorrow. They wanted to announce today, but didn't.

I don't know what Lou is thinking. He seems to be too determined to be the "good guy" recently and it keeps screwing us. Allowing Sutter to leave, letting the Wild get away with tampering with Parise, etc. The old Lou would never have let him go like this.
he got us to the SCF last year - he'll find a way

I really can't believe it. I might not be able to watch any Devils games next year nor go to any games again simply on the basis that I don't think I can face my own kid and look him in the eye and try to explain this.

He might get the homesick part, but geez.
I'm really sorry man. Hopefully the Devils make a splash and your kid can have an idol worth a damn. He's better off long term without having to look up to this jackass anymore.

Nah. It was more imperative that the Devils get a Goaltender than a position player.

Only way it makes sense for them to void the contract!!!
When posters repeatedly point out that couldn't be farther from the truth (not to mention that we've spent more money in FA this past week than Kovalchuk is due to earn in the next few years), yea I could see how the mods get annoyed.

Our front six is now officially one of the slowest in the league, even with a hurt Kovalchuk leaving.
