Tomáš Nosek gets a deal:

Erik Haula on what’s ahead: “Last year was a really fun year. We definitely exceeded a lot of expectations for individuals, and as a team. Now just looking at some of the offseason moves to help build on last year, we’re excited.” []

“But what New Jersey has going right now is a fun, winning culture that players want to be a part of. Erik Haula and Jesper Bratt wanted to stay. Timo Meier, after coming over from the San Jose Sharks at the 2023 trade deadline, did as well. All three have new, multi-year contracts. Even Tyler Toffoli preferred New Jersey over Calgary, and now he’s a Devil. I think it says a lot about Fitzgerald. Obviously players want to win and get paid. But for New Jersey to suddenly be retaining – and gaining – talent in today’s NHL, it shows the players have trust in Fitzgerald.” [Daily Faceoff]

Chico speaks:

Based on those talks, several people within the organization are confident Karlsson prefers to be traded to the Penguins.” [The Athletic ($)]
