Before each Devils game, I make sure: I know where my tickets are, I make sure my family and I are wearing our jerseys and showing our team support at all times. It’s important to me that we are 100 percent showing our support for the Devils.http://devils.nhl.com/club/m_news.htm?id=783555
"I'm just going to go out and play hard and do what I can. It's two games before the trade deadline. If I end up here after the deadline, or somewhere else, it's out of my control," Ryder told NJ Advance Media.via NJ.com
"He’s not signed and, for Ryan, being in training camp is important," [Neil] Sheehy said. "Lou certainly likes him and wants him. There isn’t room right now. That could change. There are no guarantees one way or the other. Lou works a certain way. We’ll just have to see how things shake out. Isn’t there a website In Lou We Trust? It’s for good reason."Rich Chere at NJ.com, 9/10/14
"We have no need to call (Lou). New Jersey is the one facing life without David, so that’s up to Lou to answer that question."http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/fireice/clarkson_preparing_to_start_fielding_offers_from_other_teams_after_turning_down_devils_offer/#sthash.55HLa1CJ.dpuf
This was retweeted by TG a couple minutes ago; "Odds on Danny Briere's next team, according to Bovada: Devils 3-to-2, Senators 5/2, Canadiens 9/2, Sabres and Coyotes 5/1." I know Bovada is just a gambling site, but they do usually have some shred of truth to their odds. Briere probably doesn't want to move far with his kids and the Devils could use more scoring. For the right price, I'd be okay with the deal. Seeing as Kunitz, after a fantastic year, only got around 3.75 per, I'd say anywhere up to 3.5 for, at the absolute max, 3 years would be okay. He'd be 38 at the end of that deal and I think he can remain productive through that. What say you?https://twitter.com/BuffNewsVogl/status/350275126035619841
He [Parise] was asked twice about the potential for ever playing for the Rangers, the Devils' No. 1 rival and the team they beat in the Eastern Conference Finals, and both times emphatically responded "No," and added, "Don't try to get a headline out of it."Dan Rosen reported at NHL.com that Zach Parise will not go to the Rangers. This certainly made me smile. Scratch one team off the list.
Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice 8:11 pm It appears at this point that the Devils have decided to hold on to their 2012 first-round pick. Still waiting for official word. ________________________________________________ Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice 8:43 pm Deadline has passed, Devils have not notified NHL they are giving up 2012 1st rd pick. So, they're not giving it up this year.https://twitter.com/#!/TGfireandice
"I think we have the depth now up front with Bernier and Ponikarovsky and Henrique . . " - Pete DeBoer as quoted by Gulitti. How much do you Bernier contributes to that third line so far? And is he destined for the 4th line when Zajac comes back or Albany?http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/fireice/depth_has_allowed_deboer_to_keep_parise-elias-kovalchuk_line_together/
I didn't want to make a new FanPost, so I figured this would be okay. I just wanted to thank John and the crew for a great season and off season (so far). This is my first full year on ILWT, and this will be the first draft I watch knowing about different players, thanks to all the reviews. Great job and keep up the great work guys.
Devils have filed for club-elected arbitration with Zach Parise, Lou Lamoriello confirms.https://twitter.com/tgfireandice/status/81840757014663168
