It may have worked in moving the process along but I doubt it worked in changing Shero's valuation of what he was willing to pay Zacha. Might have help in regards to term but I doubt it...

Czech sources report that Zacha has accepted the qualifying offer.

Wow. If that's accurate his agent screwed him.

Shero has seemed like a pretty reasonable guy to deal with. I can't imagine a good agent couldn't negotiate some small concessions for Zacha beyond the qualifying offer.

Remember when Elias held out? And he became one of the greatest to play for the Devils. Hopefully no bad feelings here and things get good.

This kid might be better off being sent off in a trade. Get some picks/prospects or a D man and then let McLeod man the 4th Line Center. I'd rather have a young guy willing to earn it than a young guy complaining over his role.

Had he complained or was it his agent playing the contract tactic game?

I need to stand corrected ("lost in translation"): Report is that Zacha has agreed to contractual (not necessarily qualifying) offer

if shero really wants him to sign, he could just throw down the hammer and threaten to trade him to edmonton for puljajavarvi

a threat of being traded to edmonton should get anyone to put pen to paper real fast.

the Devils and the 22-year-old have agreed to a three-year, $7.75 Million bridge deal ($2.25 Million AAV)


so 3 years @ 2.25 per is 7.75????

Nice math.

TSN say:
Devils sign Zacha to three-year, $6.75M deal

Not only held out, damn near was all but signed with the Rangers at one point and now years later 26 is in the rafters...I hope he makes Hall Of Fame eventually!

Hey Ek.

Any news or rumors on which team(s) are stepping up on the Justin Faulk sweepstakes? It looks like the trade to Anaheim has stalled IMO due to Faulk contract demands. Do we know what he's asking in his next contract?
BINGO!

It's stalled because Faulk doesn't really want to go to Anaheim.

Do you actually believe anything Eklund says?
Track record is horrendous... only time you can trust it is when he actually names the source - anything unnamed or he takes credit for is always wrong...
