This is an important signing for New Jersey, as Zubrus is more valuable than most people think. The 6'5" Lithuanian is loved by the fans in New Jersey, as well as his teammates. Zubrus is a prototypical New Jersey Devils player: he's very solid defensively, but he can contribute offensively as well. This was a no brainer for Devils GM Lou Lamoriello.
The Devils are also working to sign soon-to-be unrestricted free agents Patrik Elias, David Clarkson, Peter Harrold, Alexei Ponikarovsky, and Marek Zidlicky. More to come in the next few days. Stay tuned.
