Kincaid! Don't act dumb! Where's the plutonium?

Hey, you listen! That plutonium is mine, and it's been registered for religious purposes.

You mean, you've actually got some plutonium?

He's got plutonium?!

Impressive numbers this year with 38 GP to go with a 1.99 GAA and a .920 Save %. Only a sophomore, as well. I'm sure he had plenty of other offers on the table.

Two promising underclassmen and Sislo, who made the NCAA regionals three times in his career with UNH and outscored van Riemsdyk when they were sophomores.

I say we did pretty well for ourselves in the UDFA collegiate market.

With this signing we now have Wedge, Kinkaid, and Clermont in the system, but I still wouldn't mind adding another body this year or the next. Preferably Malcolm Subban in 2012.

ECAC goalies tend to get knocked because they generally benefit from good defensive systems in front of them. But Marty gets the same knocks on him, so I think Kinkaid will fit in just fine here.

Devils complete the college FA hat-trick! Goalie is the one position this team needed to address in the system, so this is a huge signing. I'm surprised it took this long for a college FA goalie to come here. There is an opportunity to advance very quickly. Looks like staying close to home played a role in Kinkaid's decision too. I like what I've read so far. The big bonus is that apparently, he's very adept and playing the puck.

Here's what I was able to dig up:

Sounds good. Brodeur may not be able to teach his style or his mindset, but he can teach puck handling.

He won the Ken Dryden Award and he was an All-American. I didn't know that, but I'm impressed.

The Devils have done a fantastic job adding depth to the system with all of these NCAA FA signings. Like Brian Burke said, it's like finding a wallet. You are getting a prospect without having to give up anything on your roster or using a draft pick to get him.

So I guess he'll be going to the AHL, which isn't even too far of a move from Union for him. And if he grew up on Long Island, Jersey is pretty close too. I guess that played a part in his decision.

Looks like it. They didn't even bother to correct my assumption that he had posted it himself. One of the other articles had it right, people were congratulating him on Facebook, and this was the only thing it could be for.

Pathetic journalism. Will be surprised if the guy gets paid. It's like using Wikipedia as a source on a essay.

Thinking AHL or goaltending there sucks.
