“Anytime there’s been a high-end forward on the market, the Devils have been in the conversation of potential destinations. They struck out on Alex DeBrincat and Johnny Gaudreau, but landed veteran Ondrej Palat. While he’s a good top-nine forward to add, he’s not the elite winger this team was originally vying for. That’s why this squad could look to Meier to solidify the top of their lineup.” [The Athletic ($)]

More Timo Talk, in which Frank Seravalli also sees the Devils as a fit. “...Meier is a driver of play – which is relatively rare for wingers. He oozes tenacity in the offensive zone. He uses his thick frame and strong skating style to win pucks and create. Teammates get better and produce more playing with Meier.” [Daily Faceoff]

I would expect that to change at some point here in the next few days.” [TSN]
