    Albeit against popular belief, GMs work during the playoffs

    Just by virtue of signing he burns a year on his ELC?

    not at all. They set it up so that his contract starts this year as a sign of good faith to the player (just like they did with Wood and Santini a few years ago.) He will theoretically get to his next contract quicker this way.

    He wouldn't be able to practice or play if his contracts started for next season.

    Shero seems really easy when it comes to giving out ELC years, not sure if that's a good thing. They don't even have any AHL games left to play after today and he's probably not playing in the NHL playoffs. Although if they're that down on Bratt and Gibbons who knows :laugh:

    Doubt they are.

    Gibbons has not been the same since returning from Injury.

    But Bratt had played well.

    Anderson's first year will (more than likely if he doesn't play in 10 playoff games) slide since he signed as 19 year old. Santini and Wood were able to burn a year since they signed as 20 year olds.

    Nice. Hope we can get Jeremy Davies signed this offseason too.

    Anderson seems like the perfect guy to be the third wheel on Hall-Hischier line. Don't know if he's ready yet, but his skillset is compatible with the role.

    Everywhere Joey plays he ends up on the top line, even when better scorers are available. Seems like a very smart, versatile player who works well with skill guys.

    Since it's after the regular season I don't think this applies.

    I missed it... damn, I was hoping he would make the jump to replace Moore. Thanks for the headsup.

    He couldn’t really be less effective than Grabner, Boyle, or Gibbons if he did play.

    Anderson is already in New Jersey and will join members of the team Monday morning for a skate before Game 3 against Tampa Bay, which means his three-year contract starts right now as one of the extra players during the playoff run.

    "I think it will be a great experience for him to be here and get a taste of the NHL and help drive his summer training," Fitzgerald said. "No one wants to burn a year off a contract, but we were willing to do that because we feel we've got a real good player in him. If he comes at a bigger price tag in two years because he's that good of a player, that's a great problem to have."

    I'm so pumped. Very bullish on him.

    I don’t fully understand burning a year in that case but **** it what do I know. Imo he’s our top prospect, so this is great news

    It's a concession to the player. He gets an RFA contract earlier meaning he gets more money earlier.

    The team does it because if an NCAA prospect isn't happy they can hold out and go UFA after four years like Butcher and Kerfoot. NCAA players have all the leverage here.

    Plus, a RFA contract after 2 years from now rather than 3 years from now may actually be more cost effective for the Devils at the end of the day. Better chance of locking a player in for a few season before they have a break out season.
