Well it isn’t much of a frenzy anymore. The Devils made one move yesterday.

MARK FAYNE


Yup, the same defenseman who missed an open net in Game 1 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals has been re-signed by NJ for 2 years, $2.6 million. Fayne was a restricted free agent who was scheduled for an arbitration hearing on August 2nd but the Devils gave him a satisfactory contract before he took this issue to court. There are mixed opinions among Devils fans but I felt a bit eh about this because there are several defensemen in the minors that have the potential to be stars. Among these defensemen happen to be Eric Gelinas. But first, let’s see if Fayne improves into a defenseman worthy of a spot on the Devils roster.

Meanwhile, wow…Alex Semin sure does like to take his time. At this rate, he might as well be headed to the KHL. I’m tired of hearing all these “sources” saying that the Devils are in contention for him. While he’d be an awesome fit for NJ, it’s irritating to hear something and then see a whole different result. Hopefully he decides to go to the Devils in the next week or so.
