apparently over the weekend this wasn't reported on the weekend the New Jersey Devils were given permission by the Vegas cold nice to talk contract with them and they did and they got him signed to a two-year 4.5 million dollar a year contract so 9 million dollars in total so having negotiated that contract well now they have all the leverage over Vegas now they've gone hey we've got a price tag of four-and-a-half million and we've agreed to it and Vegas is ok Vegas gets New Jersey's third-round pick in 2020 and their second-round pick in 2021 Gustav's 27 years of age he has not played a game in the National Hockey League there is some risk to New Jersey there for Vegas this is a fail this is this is absolutely a fail they've been shedding players in the offseason to get under the cap and there was some belief that part of the reason that they shed guys like like Halle and Miller was because they were bringing Gusev in right so they're saving that cap and they can get gusoff but it would appear that Vegas just couldn't get to where goose I've wanted and New Jersey was like ok we'll take that chance New Jersey has cap space and for New Jersey this could potentially be a game changer so I've been talking about New Jersey picking up Subban adding hues it's the number one draft pick and still being on the fence with whether or not Vegas is going to be-better Gusev could absolutely be that wild card in this that addition to the top six that was needed to really make New Jersey a team to fear and the Metro now it could but it could absolutely blow up in New Jersey's face the worst case scenario the guy bombs the first couple of months and they end up getting rid of them and but all they've lost is a third and a second round pick Vegas does not get back a first-round draft pick they don't get back a roster player they don't get a current prospect either and then in next year's draft they get at best what 63rd would be the the first pick of the third round and I don't see New Jersey finishing at the bottom of the league this year so it'll be light later than that it is a calculated risk by the Vegas Golden Knights I know there are fans that aren't happy right now with Gusev being traded out but this was kind of the risk they just didn't have cap space for him they did not have the cap space to sign him and not need to move somebody else as well and he can't keep moving guys off the blue line and keep it roading that depth on the blue line so it's it is a large blow to Vegas who I think we're trying to make some moves to accommodate Gusev and they just couldn't get to a spot where they could pay him so it'll be interesting to see what happens for him in New Jersey I'm wearing a devil's Jersey because I believe they win this deal because they get the best player and and I don't see a third in a second necessarily being enough for a guy who could be as good as gusoff could be and I'm I'm I'm giving the benefit of that out there I thought he was a little bit overhyped when coming across to potentially play for Vegas and so I expect that hype train to continue in New Jersey it'll be very interesting comic Tober to see how he does let me know what you guys think in the comments section below how excited are you if you're a devil's fan right now that they've acquired Gusev and and without losing anything off the roster and without losing a prospect that's currently in the system it's a win not even Ty Smith they didn't he you know like they couldn't even pride Ty Smith out in this deal new jersey keeps everything in line and they add a potential top six forward four-and-a-half million dollar cap it is that high yeah but it's two years it's not five it's not six it's not some huge long-term deal it's two years and then at the end of those two years he's an unrestricted free agent but for the next two years he's a member of the Devils let me know your thoughts as always in the comment section below don't forget to hit like and subscribe if you're browsing your way through just happen upon this video and hey I did this with the preview where during the Anaheim preview I said we're into the quiet time where things don't really happen a lot so I'm gonna say you're welcome now cuz it kind of made it happen thank you guys so much for all your support I will talk to you again soon

    Dumb question: “Who’s Gusev?”

    If you dont know who gusev is, just go look at his highlights… Sick hands, sick playmaking and can also finish if there is no pass available 😅

    Is it just me or does vegas seem to have bad luck with russian players? First shipachev leaving to go back to russia, now gusev being traded.

    Hughes was signed at around 3.75 something per year for 3yrs, and he has played… where?
    Gusev has proven himself in the second strongest League in the world – I'd say he's a safe bet for this money.

    as a VGK fan, im pretty happy because it allows plyayers like Zykov and Pirri to be able to be on our starting roster.. they played good when they came up so.. and now we don't have to worry about signing anyone.. we will be fine..

    As a Sharks/Rangers fan, I don't particularly like the Devils. But I have to say, even I am excited to watch the Devils this year.

    New Jersey wins this one at the moment. I recall you saying in previous that George Mc Phee and now Mc Krimmon wanted to build a Vegas team to win now, and they have been a good team but I think he went too big too fast and now they're paying for it dearly. Vegas could not be at an entire loss if the future draft picks end up being good ones. Also they did draft Peyton Krebs in the first round and as long as he stays healthy he's a great prospect along with some of the Chicago Wolves.

    I think a second and a third is a pretty good return for a player that hasn’t played an NHL game.

    Its funny when shero did nothing last year some people were complaining. Now shero gets the last laugh to the people who doubted him. reguardles if this deal doesnt pan out the devils lost no established nhl talent and only have gusev for 2 years..

    Good risk for NJ. When the cost is draft picks in 2nd+ rounds, its worth taking the chance on a player that could potential be a 2nd liner.

    Gusev in either cases should be a fun player to watch, so while I don't like the deal ( still love the knights) the devils could really shake up the standings. That could be very interesting.

    Russians do not work in Vegas. Glad to see Gusev is gone.
