So how exactly did the Devils strike out on Johnny Gaudreau? Pierre LeBrun gives us some context on the money: “Sources confirmed that the New Jersey Devils offered a seven-year deal, with the dollar amount somewhere ‘in the nines’. However, the Devils didn’t really hear back for a long time from agent Lewis Gross after they made their offer. That’s because Gross was busy working on the best offer he got on this day: seven years and a $9.75 million U.S. AAV from the Columbus Blue Jackets.” [The Athletic ($)]
