Ah, the ol' "ready to prove the [insert 'doubters,' 'haters,' 'kids who picked him last at recess' here] wrong" article. Who is ready? Ryane Clowe is ready. [Star-Ledger]

Michael Ryder was signed to a two-year, $7 million deal. [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger]

In the "sign the coolest-named UFA" battle, the Devils signed Rostislav Olesz to a one-year, $1 million deal. [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger]

The Devils have apparently signed Darcy Zajac to a two-year, two-way deal. [PHT]

Life without David Clarkson has begun: David signed a seven-year, $36.75 million deal. How is your life without David? [Star-Ledger]

A Toronto newspaper is already comparing Clarkson to Wendel Clark. It's good Toronto isn't placing crushing expectations on a player and expecting the world from him. [PHT]
