"He should get a big thank you," Brodeur said, joking.
Burke was embroiled in a contract holdout...
Well, it sure is good to know that Ilya Kovalchuk is happy back in Russia and that he thinks things have worked out for the New Jersey Devils as well.
Of course, Kovalchuk might want to actually have paid more than lip service to his former team before making that declaration.
Yeah, it has worked out just great for Kovalchuk. His "retirement" lasted about a nanosecond...

While the Montreal Canadiens would surely like to get rid of Daniel Briere, believing the New Jersey Devils would be willing trade partners is overly optimistic at this point.
By now, most Habs fans have read or heard of NJ.com writer Randy Miller’s “3 reasons why Canadiens’ Daniel Briere could be traded to Devils” piece. Posted last Tuesday, the day of Montreal’s latest...
