Devils keep eye on Salvador's ear
The ear ailment that Bryce Salvador is battling could further imperil the continued tenures of Colin White and Dainius Zubrus tenure as Devils. Salvador missed nine days of action the last time he endured an ear problem. If that's the case this time, the Devils might have to look...

Devils' Salvador undergoes tests after being knocked out of preseaosn win
In what could further complicate his salary cap quandary, Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said Wednesday that D Bryce Salvador, 34, is undergoing inner ear tests after being knocked out of Tuesday night's 3-2 exhibition victory over the Flyers. The defenseman missed five games in December, 2008, with what the...
Devs take good look at Rolston
With a week to go, it's all about the cap cuts. Nothing is clearer than it was when training camp opened, except that the Devils are more likely to have to waive players than trade them to trim some $3-5 million from their cap liability by next Wednesday. Last...

Devils make cuts, still have plenty of salary to clear
The Devils' picture cleared a bit Tuesday when 11 players were assigned to Albany. The big question of how to shed $3-6 million in salary cap liability still looms. Assigned to Albany were defensemen Tyler Eckford and Olivier Magnan-Grenier and forwards Patrick Davis, Stephen Gionta, David McIntyre, Brad Mills, Tim...

Avalanche interested in Devils’ Langenbrunner: report
The Devils may end up trading their captain to get salary cap relief. The Avalanche are interested in acquiring Jamie Langenbrunner from the Devils, according to a Bergen Record report. While moving the 35-year-old right wing and his $2.8 million salary is not ideal, the Devils have yet to...

Aggressive Avery makes big impact
So after Sean Avery was given 14 minutes in penalties for an early second period incident involving Ilya Kovalchuk, No. 16 simply turned around last night's preseason match in New Jersey once he finally got back on the ice. First, he drew a crosschecking penalty at 19:26 from...
Torts defuses trouble
It was the Rangers coach who defused what could still be another NHL vs. Ilya Kovalchuk case. The Devils will have to find their own solution to being susceptible to tough guys and agitators like Sean Avery. The NHL is expected to look at what Rangers GM Glen Sather thought...
Rangers waive goodbye to Redden
During the first week of July 2008, after deciding not to re-sign Jaromir Jagr, Brendan Shanahan, Sean Avery and Martin Straka, the Rangers re-upped Michal Rozsival to a four-year, $20 million contract; signed free agent Wade Redden to a six-year, $39M free agent contract; signed free agent Markus Naslund to...
Union $tepped up for Devils
Just when you thought there was nothing more to learn about the NHL's prosecution of Ilya Kovalchuk and the Devils, Slap Shots can inform you that GM Lou Lamoriello was on the phone with NHLPA attorneys on the day the union and league were crafting the amendment to the...

Arnott believes Devils were into head games over concussion
These days, there would be no issue. Suffer a concussion and you sit until the bells stop ringing. It's almost as if Jason Arnott never left, the way he has fit back with Patrik Elias. But he did exit, traded less than two seasons after scoring the Devils' memorable...

Rangers hope Fedotenko finds big-game form
It was playoff weather in Manhattan last night. Maybe if Ruslan Fedotenko closed his eyes and clicked his skate heels together, the winger might have been able to transport himself to an alternate universe in which Rangers-Devils at the Garden was a postseason contest rather than the Blueshirts' first exhibition...
Rangers' Frolov looks sharp in exhibition victory
Here's a point of reference for Rangers fans regarding Alex Frolov, the first-line left wing signed by general manager Glen Sather for what very well could be the bargain price of $3 million for one season: He is Marcel Hossa with hands, a shot and hockey sense. Frolov was...
Boyle, Stepan look solid for Rangers
There's some competition for a spot or two on defense, maybe a battle for a job or two on the wing. But there is no doubt that the center position is the center of attention in this Rangers' training camp and no doubt that the number of legitimate candidates...
Devils lining up for 1-2 punch
They can't wait, these Devils, for what could be the best one-two punch in hockey. New Jersey's top two lines have split preseason duty so far, and the combination may prove more than the sum of their parts. Each member of the KovaLine scored -- Travis Zajac in...

Marian a key for Rangers
The depth of talent pushing up is more expansive at this Rangers' camp than it has been for well over a decade. But though that's an important milestone in the organization's development, the 2010-11 Blueshirts are still going to live and die primarily by what they get from...

Kovie leaning to the right
PHILADELPHIA -- They have to take this rare shot at assembling a super line, and preseason is the right time. The great thing is that the Devils can always change if it isn't working. "It's going to take some time," $100 million signee Ilya Kovalchuk said of being...

Devils veterans auditioning for other teams as exhibitions begin
PHILADELPHIA – Strangely, preseason this year is Showcase Time for the Devils, who can only hope their high-priced vets impress scouts and GMs enough to prompt them to take some. The ugly reality is that if Lou Lamoriello can't find trading partners for some of those contracts, the Devils' GM...

Kovalchuk moves to right wing
There's nothing timid about new Devils coach John MacLean. First thing he does is move $100 million Ilya Kovalchuk off left wing, where he earned that bonanza. MacLean opened training camp yesterday by assembling what could be one of the great lines in hockey, putting Kovalchuk on right wing...

Lamoriello loves the looks of loaded Devils
No one wins anything in September or on paper, but even with their looming cap cuts, the Devils look stronger than they have been since their last Stanley Cup. "I'm excited about it. We have different dimensions we have not had in the past," general manager Lou Lamoriello said...
Burns: I'm not dead yet
Contrary to reports elsewhere, Pat Burns lives and continues to amuse everyone. Burns, who coached the Devils to the Stanley Cup in 2003 and also coached the Canadiens, Maple Leafs and Bruins, has been battling cancer. Reports yesterday said that he had died, but Burns reacted to the claims by...

Kovalchuk, Devils vets report to camp
Along with the rest of the vets, Ilya Kovalchuk reported to Devils camp this morning. He promptly backed Donald Fehr – who helped get his second contract finally registered by the NHL - to head the Players Association. "If he'll be the head of our union, it's the right...
Devil-ish task ahead for Lamoriello
The Devils reporting for training camp today won't be quite so formidable by the season opener. Reality is weighing down on the Devils, who must slice their salary cap payroll by some $3-5 million by Oct. 6. That reality is the Big Issue of training camp and grows more...

Ilya ruling still eats at Devils
They seethe inside. Make no mistake. Outwardly, the Devils remain stoicly silent over their treatment by the NHL throughout the Ilya Kovalchuk saga. Inwardly, they are furious at being singled out for rejection of a front-loaded, career-long contract, and for being clobbered with a $3 million fine and loss of...

Punishment ends Ilya case: commish
Nhl commissioner Gary Bettman said he does not expect the Devils to try to overturn the league's fine of $3 million and confiscation of a first-round and a third-round draft pick as punishment for their rejected signing of Ilya Kovalchuk. Bettman said that circumvention is the issue, not intent...
