Andy Greene Remains a Devil

Not that the New Jersey Devils were planning to release him. Anyway, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record has a short article stating that Andy Greene has been re-signed for 2 years.

Interestingly, the deal is worth a total of $1.2 million over 2 years. That's right, Greene took a pay cut to stay with the Devils. Last season, he was making $850,000 on a two-way deal; a reason why he did not become a starter on the Devils roster right out of training camp last season. This deal is a one-way deal; so Greene has that going for him. A savings of $250k to the salary cap may not be much, but every little bit helps.

That's one restricted free agent out of the way, time for Lou to look at giving others, such as Paul Martin and Zach Parise, some well-deserved raises.


A well deserved raise for Martin? He's already making $2 million, he doesn't deserve more. When he starts playing and shooting like a star defenseman, then he'll get paid more. For now, $2 million is just about right for him.
