    he has been above average overall for us. His board work and netfront presence on the PP has definitely helped

    I would certainly not give him 4 years. the MOST I would go is 3 and I would probably be hesitant with that.

    He's making 1.5M$... at most I'd offer him 3 X 3M$ and maybe that would be too much.

    You rarely see players making double of what they're earning. He's a 3rd liner with below average speed but makes up for it in strength and board work.

    Eh he's actually in the last year of a 3-6 deal ($2 million per) and he signed that when he hadn't done nearly as much as he's done the last couple seasons. Guys like him typically do get overpaid in FA but since the trade market wasn't there for him maybe he won't get the typical 'physical forward with skill' markup in FA.

    My bad... forgot Anaheim retained 500K.

    If he's asking for anything over 4M$ over 4 years plus... I wouldn't do it. Don't want another anchor contract when we have key pieces to resign in the next couple of years.

    He's exactly the type of forward we needed.

    Big, heavy, good hands who can control the boards and possess the puck (aside from being a net-front presence)

    It's his day today

    If Maroon replaces STAFFORD and Hayes and Boyle on the NJ roster he is a welcome addition. The problem would be collecting big slow forwards.

    IMO he went for cheaper than I expected given his skill set and cap hit. He is a good player but will likely be overpaid as an UFA. He's a guy that needs to be at or under $3 million to be a non Albatross of a deal in the event that he is in a bottom 6 role for the majority of his contract. Given the choice I'd rather have Maroon at $4 million than Lucic at $6 million or at least the Lucic that has been sucking horribly for us since Christmas. The game has been speeding up so you can afford 1, maybe 2 slower forwards on your team in this league.

    JVR is also this type of player and a free agent too.

    When Cangy mentioned it during the game while talking about Bratt being in the lineup, that was the first I heard of it.

    UNLESS it's one of those "phantom" injuries.....

    Fast - no
    attacking- no
    supportive -meh.

    Honestly - he's Zubrus+ with better hands. If he gets a few PP goals, I'm psyched.

    I'd rather have someone else on the team next year.

    I lean towards agreeing with you but let's see what transpires the rest of this season.

    That panther fan helped get the Maroon trade thread locked down, made a new Maroon thread in the national hockey boards. Guess who was the first poster to comment?

    I would love to see him retained to mentor Zacha and Wood on how to dominate board battles.

    I still have a feeling he is going to do whatever he can to get closer to STL to be near his son.

    Love what he’s brought to the team. His presence on the PP has opened things up big time.

    When I read this, I knew who it was without even looking

    Just to confirm I had a peek and sure enough...

    What an intensely bitter loser that kid is

    You can't have an orchestra if everyone plays trumpet. Maroon's played great so far and he deserves credit.

    Edit: I didn't realize that this was an old post, sorry for the confusion.

    I don't even need to check. He's approaching straightjacket and padded walls territory about the Devils.
