Ryane Clowe signs a 5 year $4.85 million deal with the New Jersey Devils. #TSN #NHL
 
There's an overpayment of epic proportions.

I like Clowe, but that's insane. Especially coming off the season he just had.

Money very well spent right here. (sarcasm)

 

Going to be interesting to see if Clowe produces in New Jersey...

Agreed. 

 

But doesn't Jersey have a lot of money to throw around?  At least in terms of cap space.  There's always the question of whether they can actually pay their bills.

I don't get it.

 

Far-reaching, it may be. The tweet came through shortly after the announcements of the Clowe signing. Last season he certainly fit the bill of a "bad player on a good team", though I suppose I don't know who the comparison would be to.

 

Carry on.
