Rumor: Souray Signs with Devils

http://nhlline.ca/

I'll call it rumor for now, because it's not 100% confirmed, I'll change it when it becomes official.

Didn't that site have Briere signing with the Canadiens as a similar report (not even a rumor)?

That would be a pretty solid signing if it's true. Not the best defensive unit , their top 4 would be Souray/Martin/White/Rachunek.

Let's see if this goes down.


EDIT: The more I think of it , the more I realize that I would take Rafalski over Souray any day. Devils fans going to be happy with this?

The team that will sign him will be highly desapointed. You better have hell of a defensive defencemen to play with him and he better be fast cause Souray brings nothing in these 2 departement.

I'd put Matvichuk and Greene if he continues to develop over Rachunek.

More like

Souray/Martin/White/Greene

At least imo. Greene is that good to be a top 4.

I would not be unhappy with it because he has something we lack which is a shot from the point and he does have size and leadership. But I hope Lappy and Stevens and Robinson could help improve his defensive game.

A trap system is probably the best system for him. It would be a good move.

Souray with the Devils? Sounds like a match made in heaven.

That backline is really big. I like that signing.

They needed a cannon on the PP.

Uh yeah... well, who could resist those sandy West Coast beaches of New Jersey?

What happened to all the rumours all season long?

this better not be true. I have been a devils fan for over 10 years. If Lou let Rafalski go and signs Souray then he will have officially lost it. Someone needs to foribd him from making ufa signings. Stick to re-signing your own players (the ones who deserve it (rafalski), drafting, signing undrafted free agents, and trades. His signings have become as dangerous as Hasek coming out of net to play the puck

He might sign with the Devils, but that site is a complete joke. I would be more convinced if Eklund had it as an e1.

For all the Hab fans that will come into this thread to bash Souray, listen up:

Souray is worth 5 mil, he might not be the fastest, or the best defensively, but his offense is good, his shot is money and his leadership and attitude is A1!


I'd rather have Rafalski, Timonen, etc.. but he is by no means a liability. But they bring different things to the table.



Leadership
Toughness
Accountability
and a rocket of a shot.

Souray is a player least likely to match up well with the Devils system, I hope they sign him to a 5+ year $5m+ contract.

No. I have a feeling that this is both true and going to make me exceptionally unhappy.

I'm going to miss embarassing Souray and taking him out of his skates 8 times a year. Will miss him in our division!!

So the Devils get bounced in the second round last year , already didn't have a geat offence of defence and they lose Gomez and Rafalski and bring in Souray and Rachunek. Souray has a cannon from the point and the PP will be great with him , but look forward to alot of giveaways and weak turnovers and sloppy defensive play.

Wow , Brodeur has gone from Niedermayer and Stevens to Rafalski down to Souray.
