Devils to pay Niedermayer Arb Award No Matter What

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp?id=91127

If the Devils are going to pay the arbitration award no matter what to get a 1 year contract and they want him to stay so dearly.. why don't they pay him no matter what for a long term deal? Does it make sense financially no.. then again Nieds may not want to stay longer than 1 more year.

This is so unlike Lou. Honestly, I'm really confused. What are the Devils doing? We're not acting like ourselves.

What do we know that everyone else doesn't? Because we're acting like we do.

In any event, In Lou I Trust.

Even at 8 mil a season, Niedermayer is still tradeable. Obviously, the Devils don't want to lose him for nothing.

Agreed, with a player like Niedermayer, you just can't walk away from the arb award. He's just too good and still has value if he's at 8 million.

Lou is finally using a little public relations. Nieds will be a devil for the start of the season, however, if he doesn't resign it's on him, not Lou. And if Lou feels that he's going to walk or gets some insane arbitration increase, Lou can move him for something at the trade deadline instead of getting nothing in return and comes out smelling like roses to Devils fans. There is always a reason to his madness!
