Re-Sign Mara

He hasn't been scoring, but in the playoffs, he's really stepped up, and created a lot of scoring chances, and I think we should definetly re-sign him.

yep, He may not be as offensive as Roszival but he's way better overall.

In a contract year, ROszival has been god awful the 2nd half. Don't want him anymore.

We need at least ONE steady vet on our blue line.

Mara couldn't dream to be in Rozsival's position offensively or defensively.

agreed, I really like what Mara brings to the table. And I think he should have more PP time, he's got a rocket of a shot, and unlike our other pointmen actually is aware of the possible Shorthanded breakout.

I'd bring him back (barring a rediculous contract demand)

Rozivals timing is not the best, he hasn't shown either since Jan.

And I used to think and defend the guy as our best D man, not right now he sure isn't.

Never said Rozsival was our best D man now. He isn't. Staal is. Staal has been all year.

Still, that doesn't change the fact that Rozsival's game is 50x better than Mara's.

Mara's been making $3 mil. That's a lot for a 3rd pairing d-man--one that's kind of lost his scoring touch which is a way of saying I wouldn't give him a pay raise or even another way of saying that it depends on what kind of money he wants.

Yeah. But no. Apparantely he's better because he "will shoot the puck."

Yeah, he'll shoot it, and not score.

I don't care if he scored 45 points back in 1973, he sucks now offensively and I don't care what he does defensively and he's nowhere near worth 3$million.

he's been our 2nd best D-man this playoffs behind Staal. If you can get him for less than he's making now, i'm all for it.

and yet he's a defenseman. Doesn't do anything flashy but makes the safe, smart play. Def. of a steady D man. With a pretty young corps, and no indication we're going to sign a guy, he needs to be back there imo. Also, always a plus, Mara plays physical.

I think Mara is worth about 2.5 million we will definitely not resign him.

Roszival we HAVE to keep... are you people that are willing to let him go going to find a better option on the market to put up those points and be competent defensively? Dream on.

He plays physical?

I didn't know grabbing people over and over and over again was physical play.

ok, but comes back to, what have you done for me lately?? He's been a ghost for some time, when it matters most. Pts he puts up in Nov are no good if he doesn't in Apr.

I think we should do it. He has been playing really well the second half of the year and in the playoffs.

As for the money thing. I don't have an issue paying him the money he deserves, he has earned the contract that he is currently under. He will ask for a little bit of a raise and he should get it.

Also, I always notice people on the boards saying that this player and that player costs too much money, so we should not resign them. We have to spend money no matter what, so why should we not spend it on known quantities? We know exactly what we are going to get out of Mara, so why should we take a chance on someone who we don't know.

He has a lot of character. He's someone I would want on my team, even if he isn't producing, he's generating chances, he very well could be.

And when I think about it, he's someone I can see the Devils taking on and turning into a weapon. He definitely has a good amount of raw ability - they need a powerplay guy - and he's from New Jersey.

If we can sign Mara for cheap I'm all about it. Steady d-man, it's what we need.

That post sums up my feelings about Mara.

I'd have to disagree.

I'd say he's a decent two way defender, and he doesn't play consistently well enough defensively to offset the fact that he's completely lost his offensive abilities.

It's not exactly his fault, but hitting the net will help your cause, Paul. I seriously can't remember the last time he the net with his shot.

If Campbell and Redden want similar salaries, I go after one of them.

Redden is proven, and if you ask me could use a change of scenery.

Campbell might be slightly worse defensively, but is FAR BETTER offensively, and can throw some big hits.

It's tough though...

No way does Roszival sniff what Campbell and Redden get and if he does, the hell with all three of them.

sign him for the 3mm he makes now, you see that character at the end of the game, getting in malkins face for the dirty slewfoot he pulled. we need more people with balls on the team, paul was known as a fighter before coming here, maybe he doesnt scrap so much but he aint a *****.
