    Didn't Lou say something like he was embarrassed about the NHL lockout ? Now i know why, he was going to be the first g.m to overpay and provide proof that the lockout was for nothing.

    Re: Unbelievable!!!

    Pat Zajac was already being overpaid. He is being grossly overpaid now for one reason only - the Devils have no-one else. The cupboard is bare.

    Had Parise remained, Zajac would be gone right about now.

    Zajac had them up against the wall.  "If not, then who" rings true here.  There isn't another top line center they could just sign in the morning.  This is their own fault for not locking up Parise earlier and letting him get snatched by MN Moneybags.

    This contract fits under the new CBA.  I have no issue with it.

    But NAS the ramifications from this is huge! How many more players are going to have a team up against the wall? Does Subban have the Habs against it too? To sign a who has shown nothing more than a 2nd line Center skills at best to this kind of deal is beyond dumb.

    The ramifications are that better players are going to be looking for more money, using him as an example. Then it's back to sqaure 1. Drury and Gomez fit under the current CBA when they signed, doesnt make it good signings.

    Well I got him in my draft pool this year in the 16th round with 20 people in the pool. I had first pick overall (Stamkos). So I hope he & Kolvy are magical! But it goes to show where he is looked at. I got him at a decent pick, but still...

    Re: Unbelievable!!!

    Seems like a good signing to me. NJ really didn't have much of a choice, they need a top center, and weren't going to get anyone better for any less. Also, I like Zajac. Bergeron-esque player who played all but two games over the course of 5 seasons, although he missed almost all of last year. 

     

    The years seem a bit much, but given what players make now the dollars seem fair. The fact that there was a lockout doesn't mean players are going to start getting lower contracts.

    The Drury deal was bad out of the gate.  The Gomez deal should have been okay.  No one knew that he was going to fall apart.

    The Habs can compete without their #2 defenseman.  No team can compete without a #1 center.

    Hopefully in a future world that makes "sense", all of these guys will get nonguaranteed contracts with a base salary and earn kicked-in incentives based on performance.  There is too much "nonsense" with paying players based on predicted performance.

    Re: Unbelievable!!!

    NJ has a lot of money coming off of the books next year.  It seems to me it is an in house decision as indicated by NAS above.  NJs defense although not stellar is intact for next season.  Marty will retire and others will be off of the books.  Zajac overpaid, yup, but 8 years is the problem. That is a real gamble.  If the cap grows then sweet Lou does not look so bad.

    Re: Unbelievable!!!

    If it were me, I wouldn't be signing any players to a term that long, but the CBA at least limits them to that length.

    If you are going to define a maximum, you're going to have people asking for it.
