    Default Zajac signed long-term

    details pending...

    I think I smell a C on the way in NJ! Elias doesn't want it, only other realistic possibilities are Salvador and Zajac. Kovy is a few years away from being a Devils captain.

    It would be a mistake to tag Kovy with the C, IMHO. They should just let Kovy focus on what Kovy does best, scoring.

    yea, that is too much. he's an extremely underrated player, though. produces in all facets of the game and has an incredible work ethic and still room to improve.

    the thing that doesnt make sense to me about this is you lock up the guy ahead of time to lock in your price against him having a great year and being worth more

    to me its virtually impossible given his past production levels and the reduction in the cap that he would have been able to get a better deal than this

    so the play here would have been to wait that way if he didnt play well enough this season you could get him for cheaper

    i think uncle lou has been slipping

    I thought it was rather large myself. I guess that's just how those Devils roll.

    I can remember a time where if you wanted the money, you got a shorter contract, and if you wanted the security, then you got less money.

    Now it seems like you get both the money and the security these days.

    He's a fantastic player, but worth near $6M a year? No way. Maybe his agent was using the Jordan Staal deal as a comparable and wasn't budging from it but I personally wouldn't want to pay more than $5M for him...

    Tough spot for NJ. He was set to be a FA this summer and after having Parise leave, if Zajac leaves then they are screwed big time. For me it looked like Zajac had all the leverage.

    I believe it's overpayment, but the Devils couldn't afford to let Zajac walk.

    If Zajac got $5.75M I'm scared to see what Benn signs for...
