It was a page out of Lamoriello’s book.
Bringing back a player that has donned the Devils’ crest earlier in his career and while other teams in the Atlantic Division were shedding cap space or adding to their roster for the regular season stretch before entering the playoffs. Lamoriello went back to the well and found former Devils draft pick, Steve Sullivan, from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for a 2014 seventh-round draft pick. The 38-year old veteran has just five goals and seven assists this season. The numbers are not reassuring for a team that has only scored more than two goals once since their 4-1 win over Carolina on March 21.
The general manager has either decided he is comfortable with the roster the Devils currently have going forward, or has decided a team as soft and inconsistent as they have been all year isn’t worth losing prospects over. Perhaps he believes he has already made his best moves well before the deadline by tra...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Phoenix Coyotes have traded forward Steve Sullivan to the New Jersey Devils for a seventh-round draft pick.
A 38-year-old left wing, Sullivan started his NHL career with the Devils, playing parts of two seasons in New Jersey from 1995-97.
Sullivan signed with Phoenix as a free agent during the offseason and had some good stretches with the Coyotes, scoring five goals with seven...
Traded to the New Jersey Devils for a 7th round draft pick. The New Jersey Devils have acquired left winger Steve Sullivan of the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for a 7th round draft pick. No surprise here in any sense. The Devils have been in dire need of a scoring winger and here’s hoping [...]

The Phoenix Coyotes seemingly waved the white flag on their playoff hopes at Wednesday's NHL trading deadling, dealing off three veteran forwards.
Raffi Torres went to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a third-round pick in 2013, Matthew Lombardi was dealt to Anaheim for Brandon McMillan, and Steve Sullivan was dealt to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a seventh-round...
The Phoenix Coyotes made two deals at the deadline, sending Matthew Lombardi to Anaheim for Brandon McMillan, as well as Steve Sullivan to New Jersey for a seventh round draft pick. Lombardi was selected in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft 215th overall by the Edmonton Oilers. Lombardi failed to sign with the Oilers, re-entering the draft where he was [...]
The Phoenix Coyotes unloaded three veteran players from their roster for a minor leaguer and two draft picks at the trade deadline.
On the surface, it looks like a team giving up on the season.
The Coyotes insist the three deals were necessary moves for a team that's under the financial restraints of being run by the league for the fourth straight season.
Phoenix is just two...
The Detroit Red Wings find themselves in a particularly delicate situation heading into tonight's game against the Phoenix Coyotes (10 PM EDT, FSD/NHL Network U.S./97.1 FM) and tomorrow's tilt against the Colorado Avalanche (9 PM EDT, FSD/97.1 FM).
The 18-13-and-5 Wings sit in 7th place in the Western Conference, with 41 points and 12 games to go, which places them only...
