Posted Wednesday August 14, 2013, About: Will billionaire let Lou do his thing?
I think all Devils fans have to wonder if Lou started talking to Zack a year before he was to become a FA, would he have stayed if they offered him something like they did. I would think he would have signed it seeing that type of $ before hitting the FA market when he got to see it from his hometown team. Damn you make a great point sir!

I agree, why is Henrique not done yet. Should have been done a long time ago, come on Lou!

The rumor is that who ever buys the team, keeps them there for the lease 25 years, so they arent moving. But what he does with them is all up to him and how tight he keeps his purse strings. I don???t know how he has been with the sixers and their players contracts, but I hope he likes to spend some money, not crazy Rangers Gomez money, but some. I dont think the new owner tell Lou what to do, as he has a track record of winning without paying superstar contracts.

Why is everyone surprised that a Leman brothers guy leveraged the debt on this team so much, that???s all they did. Well they will now have a billionaire who will own them, he also will own the Prue Center who needs at basketball team to play there, ohh wait he owns one of those also, hmmm. New Jersey 76???er? Might have less of a following but if he owns the Prue center, his bottom line might look better moving them there, who knows.

well said sir!
Posted Friday July 12, 2013, About: Weeks spent trying change Kovalchuk's mind
Anyone else hearing that he is getting around 20 mill per from SKA for the first few years? Looks like the NHL might have a real problem on their hands if they can start picking off superstars.
Posted Friday July 12, 2013, About: Weeks spent trying change Kovalchuk's mind
only thing I cant understand is why wait till now to do this? He couldnt have done it 2 weeks ago? Just when things were starting to look up when we let Clarkson walk with a slight overpayment, since then its been all bad news, Clowe is farking clackson lite, and we over paid, and now this. Looks like its going to be a long season just like back in the early 80's. I just hope we do go after slow man Jagr now. Lou might have to make some package trades now, maybe the young kids will get to play afterall.

Posted Monday July 08, 2013, About: Clarkson rejects Lou's 'substantial offer'
I agree, Lou should have talked with Zack a year before his contract was up, that way he would have would have had some time to talk it over with his soon to be wife, on stayin in NJ, and not Minn where she was from. Also offer big $ and long term before anyone else could do so, and that might have kept him here. Also Lou tried everything to trade for Rob, and we knew Scott was going as soon as we couldnt land him. That was the one that hurt the most. All others, someone over paid for, and I think clarkson will prove that also. Love his grit, but no way he is a 30 goal scorer like he wants to be paid for. That was one fluke year. Hell Gio had 48 one year.

it was, just stating that it happens to just about every goalie, the average, and the greats.

we dont want anything from across the river, ever! stay on that side.

Moose is in a funk, it happens, look at Bobby Lou. Nice to see that kinkade can play well, and should get the nod next game for his first NHL start.Yes this has to be rock bottom with Mosse putting it in on himself. Lets face it, without Marty playing well, we arent going anywhere. Also it would be nice if Kovy and the 100 mill we paid for him could step it up when Marty is out.

Posted Thursday February 21, 2013, About: Brodeur wants to play for Team Canada in Sochi
He did win the shootout for Canada, I dont think Bobby Lou would have pulled that off, but he hasnt ever stolen any games.
Posted Friday February 08, 2013, About: Devils' magical line continuing success in 2013
Watching Brain when he played for the devils, we always knew his shootout style, fake wrist shot, leg pump, to backhand and roof it. Goalies had to know it was coming, but he still scored it. Now if baby Gio can get this going, I see good things!

Posted Friday February 01, 2013, About: Coyotes edge closer to relocating
I agree, there was a little talk of bringing back the whalers also, but I think that is a long shot, would be cool if they did.

So who get them? Seattle, or do the quebec nordiques make their comeback?

In Lou we trust! Lets see how old man Marty does this year. At least everyone is happy hockey is back.
