Boy, those New Jersey Devils are sure in a lot of trouble, aren’t’ they? For the second time in as many summers they find themselves over the cap, but this time is much worse than the last. This time, GM Lou Lamoriello is pressing right up against the ten percent over-the-cap limit that the NHL allows teams in the summer – and his leading scorer from last year has yet to sign.
alright so there have been a lot of aquisitions since the end of the season, but i’m thinking who are the five best and the five worst, and here is my opinion
1- Sundin, O’Neill, and Steen- If Steen improves like he should he could be the scoring winger for Mats and if o’Neill returnes to a 20 to 30 goal scorer and if Mats stays healthy this would be a great scoring line.
Since the beginning of July, lots of players signed, but a lot of them were overpaid.
We all tought or almost that the salaries would decrease a bit with the salary cap, but it didn’t seem to, it even worse I think.
Here is my standings for the most overpaid players.
Accoring to HockeyBuzz.com In a section of an article titled ” The Maloofs and Hockey in Vegas, Gionta, Carter, and Legace” Carter may still be a possibility for the leafs. And if he were to sign with the leafs he would likely do so for 1.5 million.
Steen is the best young leaf in a while and needs ice time to prove it so why not put him with sundin the best leaf in a while and oneil is there because of his monster shot.
According to sportsnet.ca Sam Fingold, a Toronto native, and a Hartford, Conn.-based commercial real estate broker, signed a letter of intent Friday to purchase the Pittsburgh Penguins from Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux’s group.
