With David Clarkson set to test the waters of free agency, the New Jersey Devils were in the market for a new power forward. And now, it looks like they’ve got their replacement. The Devils inked Ryan Clowe to a five-year deal worth $24.25M on the first day of free agency. Clowe, 30, spent most of his eight-year NHL career with the San Jose Sharks, before being traded to the New York Rangers at last season’s trade deadline. He’s had two 20+ goal seasons (22 in 2008-09 and 24 in 2010-11), and can add some secondary offense to his game as a hard-hitting checking winger. Clowe’s played in 435 NHL games, notching 104 goals and 279 points.

It’s about to get silly

Readers take note--this is George rambling, not Paul: I had to smirk when reading the Toronto Star's Damien Cox's open growl at the supposedly shameful tactics of the NHLPA in demanding that contracts be "made whole" in light of the Lecavalier buy-out and the fact that he got stupid money from the Flyers. Over the past two days, I've been ill, and the boss...

UFA Eve
