Running With The Devils:
We are days away from the start of the Free Agency Frenzy so I would expect that the word of the day would be “speculation.” There is A LOT of it going on this morning but being that these rumors came from reputable sources, maybe there is some substance to them.
Brodeur has hired agent Pat Brisson, who represents Sidney Crosby, among others, to represent him. Keep in mind, Marty hasn’t had an agent in many, MANY years (I want to say 96 but can’t confirm that!!) Brisson has told Darren Dreger of TSN that if Brodeur isn't re-signed by Sunday he will test free agency and listen to offers.
OK..WOW, that’s a big deal. I really see Brisson being a tool used to squeeze as much money out of NJ as he could, nothing more than that but I guess you also have to entertain the idea that Marty might not be in NJ come the start of next season. The only really thing to take away from this that there is no positive from a Devils perspective of him hiring an agent.
Zach Parise still lo...

Trying to loosen some dough,
I got 7 skaters on my mind.
