ok, thought so. still, even if were under the number of allowed contracts, people need to be moved anyways. too crowded up in this biz.

Cap Geek says we are at 50, counting Parise, Noreau, and Vasyunov:

I think we'll be fine.

I think we need to trade someone for the contract flexibility, and to create a little extra cap space so we don't have another situation like last season.

Noreau may come off the reserve list if he doesn't sign in NJ.

Lamoriello said he is still in contract talks with restricted free agent defenseman Maxim Noreau, who also is considering an offer to play in Switzerland.

“He’s looking for something that he’s going to make a decision on and if not he might go to Europe,” Lamoriello said.

The Devils acquired Noreau, 24, in a June 16 trade that sent David McIntyre to the Minnesota Wild.

If you get burned 99% of time and still somehow manage to be a plus player, you can`t be that useless, ya know.

I know you're kidding, but +/- is the most worthless stat in all of professional sports.

Only when it fits someone's needs. The guy doesn't give up goals so his +/- is pretty apt.

The problem is that they don't score any with him out there, either. He's a time waster.
In other words, a perfectly luxury box defenseman.

I agree he's perfect as a 7. No reason to have a young guy with a high ceiling sitting in the box every night. Keep fraser there, whatever. I want our best youngsters (who don't make the devs) getting quality time in albany instead...

Fraser just seems so redundant. I don't know why Lou keeps him around. All he does is possibly take the roster spot of a more talented rookie.

If Fraser makes the team it will be as a 7th defensemen. Basically on'y getting in the lineup if a player gets a short term injury. Any long term injury and they will probably call someone up (Taormina my guess).

I think given the time he missed last year it may be better for Tao to at least start in Albany and get ice time there. Assuming Fayne stays in the regular lineup and there isn't a trade that leaves Fraser and Corrente for the 7th spot (both at 7th defensemen in my mind). Corrente has a two way so take that however way you want.

A talented rookie should spend time sitting up in the luxury box and being in a practice D pairing with Cam Janssen or Rod Pelley?

Albeit only 550k, that's 550k of wasted cap space

Taormina takes $550,000 instead of Everson's reported expected $561,000 according to capgeek.

I'm not surprised with his history with DeBoer.

Relax guys, I don't think he'll actually make the roster unless he deserves it... and who knows, maybe he will earn it. He's young, he's physical... certainly not a guy who absolutely will never ever go anywhere ever with his NHL career.

I don't understand. Everyone was *****y about not being able to carry scratches last season (well, at least until everyone got maimed), now they're carrying scratches and people don't like the scratches. As if 1) you're going to have a worthwhile prospect rot, or 2) someone good is going to sign for no money to play 30 games a season.

"Well, Lou, I'd be honored to join the Devils."
"Just one thing, defenseman guy, we're not going to play you and you're going to be on a practice pair with our equivalent of Adam Mair this year."
"Wow, Lou, you really know how to make Edmonton sound good."

There are 23 spots on the roster, maximum. If he's up, he's taking someone else's spot.

Sometimes the best way to learn is to watch. Why did Tedenby get scratched all the time by Lemaire?

How many times did he actually get scratched? I'm guessing not as many you think. And he shouldn't be scratched all the time, if it comes to that, you go back down. Development players develop, they don't rot by sitting up in a box and "watching" (and there's not that much watching going on, trust me), or practicing with someone who doesn't even play their position!

And it's not somebody else's spot if there's no one else that should have that role. The last guy on your roster is a duster. It doesn't get defined as something else because someone better is doing it.
