DEVS KEEP 2 BACKLINERS
Preventing two of their defensemen from becoming unrestricted free agents, the Devils have signed Mike Mottau and Sheldon Brookbank, each to two-year contracts, The Post has learned. Sources say Mottau will earn $750,000 and $775,000 in his deal, up from the 475G the 30-year-old made last season, his first full year in the NHL. Brookbank is believed to have signed for $500,000 and $550,000. Mottau, the 2000 Hobey Baker winner, played a full NHL season for the first time in his career, missing only six games and scoring four goals and 13 assists for New Jersey. A former Ranger 10th-rounder in 1997, he was signed by the Devils July 17, 2006, after stints in the Calgary and St. Louis organizations. Brookbank played 44 games for the Devils after being claimed on waivers from Columbus, which had signed him last summer.

PANDOLFO: 'NO RUSH' TO MAKE DEAL WITH DEVILS
The month since the Devils' season ended has helped Jay Pandolfo regain his fitness, but he hasn't yet heard from Lou Lamoriello about coming back to Newark next season. Agent Bob Murray confirmed yesterday that no talks have begun to keep the 11-year Devil vet from becoming an unrestricted free agent July 1. "There's really no rush," Pandolfo said. "I don't know what's going to happen. But we have a lot of time before July 1. "I expect to talk to [Lamoriello]." Pandolfo, 33, didn't fully recover during last season from a groin ligament injury he suffered Nov. 28. He missed 28 games before returning to action Feb. 4, but was not his usual defensive force. The injury snapped his Devils' Iron Man streak at 307 games, now fourth longest in team history. "I feel good now, especially with the time off," Pandolfo said. Taken with a 1993 second-round pick acquired with Bobby Holik from Hartford for Sean Burke and Eric Weinrich, Pandolfo earned 836G last season. This contract stands to be his chance for a major payday. Other Devils in line for unrestricted free agency are Arron Asham, Sergei Brylin, Sheldon Brookbank, Mike Mottau, Bryce Salvador and Karel Rachunek. * Devils will hold their draft party at 7 p.m. June 20 at Newark Arena, the night of the first round.
