Apparently Devils didn't really want him back but couldn't work out a sign and trade. Teams not willing to give to much on cap or term. And trade return wasn't great. Next year he apparently will be FA somif he comes back he can negotiate with only th teams he is interested in.


TBE, Kovalchuk will end up with the team that offers him the most $$$.

Tyler Johnson signs 7 year, 35 million deal. Cap is 5 million per. Ok Bo, do a 4 year 5 million deal.

Should we over pay a bit to try and buy a few UFA years? Should we offer a 2-3 year show me/ bridge deal? Both have merit.

I think both ideas have merit. I'd go a two year bridge or a 7 or 8 year deal. It gets greasy if he signs a four or five year deal because it sends the signal he's looking at being a ufa at 26 or 27. Maybe the last two season have worn on the kid. Desjardins starting him on the 4th line, Sutter getting a lot more pp minutes despite being an inferior player. These guys only have a short time in the league. Maybe a guy doesn't want to play in one city his entire career especially if the team is a tire fire. I hope they sign him to as long of a deal as possible.

We have to sign Horvat to something similar to what the Devils gave Schneider. If not Gillis loses that trade for us BIG TIME!

Lol the trade is the trade. If Horvat signs a four year deal and leaves that has nothing to do with Eye Bags. Elmer ( god help his booze filled soul) will have had seven years on the job by then. When does it become his team ? Maybe he should have smacked Willie in the mouth when he spent the last year fucking Horvat around.

You may be quoted on that.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I was fine with the trade at the time and still am.

Not really a loaded statement

No idea what would have happened had that deal not.
But probably safe to assume, Cory would have been just as over worked and faced as many shots, had he stayed.
Maybe more. Ouch.

Tampa close to a five year deal with Ondrej Palat reportedly worth 5.3 x 5 years.

Just two more flops from the Gillis regime. So who does that leave to help save some face?
Gaunce, Hutton, Rodin, Tanev, Subban, Labate, Biega, Cassels and Cederholm.

Brutal.
