from Josh Kosman and Mark Everson of the New York Post, The National Hockey League is in talks with the money-losing New Jersey Devils to advance the team money so it can continue to operate through the season, The Post has learned.
Under the NHL plan, Devils controlling owner Jeffery Vanderbeek would continue to run the team while he pursues a long-term financing solution, sources said.
“We can presume if the advance has not happened, it is going to happen soon,” a source close to the team said.
The Devils, which need to meet payroll twice a month until the regular season ends April 7, are weighing trading team captain Zach Parise for draft picks.
Parise makes $6 million and his contract expires at the end of the year, a source said.
A Devils Arena Entertainment spokesman said, “We are not prepared to make any further comment.”
An NHL spokesman called a report that the league was considering funding the Devils “inaccurate,” but declined to elaborate.

BEST OF MAXIM
The New Jersey Devils have two seasoned goaltenders on their roster this season. One, 38-year-old Johan Hedberg, has been a backup most of his NHL career. The other, 39-year-old Martin Brodeur, is a lock for the Hall of Fame.
But with the two seeing action in 21 and 29 of the team's 46 games, respectively, the surprising Hedberg is performing best in Newark this year.
The trade deadline looms nearer each day, and NHL analysts are already tearing apart the rosters of the bottom-dwellers of each conference. The Blue Jackets, the Hurricanes, and the Ducks have been deconstructed and sold off in fantasy draft fashion by pundits nearing February 27th, and that includes the members of this site.
But one of the more intriguing deadline scenarios concerned...
Ivan Pravilov brought youth team to New Jersey last season
Jim Rutherford has been a busy man this week as he made his second trade in four days by dealing winger Alexei Ponikarovsky to the New Jersey Devils for a 2012 4th round pick and defenseman Joe Sova. The timing of this trade may have been a bit weird, but I think it is safe to say that we all saw a move like this coming. Ponikarovsky is a pending unrestricted free agent and signed...
from Mike Mazeo of ESPN New York, Devils coach Peter DeBoer expressed his frustration over what he felt should’ve been a penalty prior the Bruins’ go-ahead goal on Thursday night.
Seconds before Nathan Hornton’s 17th goal of the season on the power play at 7:10 of the third period broke a 1-all tie, the Boston winger knocked into Matt Taormina at the blue line, sending the...
This week the Devils played 3 games in the Friday to Thursday stretch. We watched them finish up a 4 game road trip in Winnipeg on Saturday afternoon where they won 2-1 and then returned home to face the same Jets on Tuesday night where they won 5-1. That was followed up by a 4-1 loss to the Bruins at home last night but Devin will have a more in depth coverage of these games in...
Ryan Miller, Martin Brodeur and Mike Smith all made show-stopping saves that left opposing forwards staring at the rafters last night. We can't decide which one we like the best, so help us out!

No call when Matt Taormina is clipped before power play goal
A. Apparently in September, but -- since nobody cares about hockey, we didn't pay attention. But now the NY Post's Josh Kosman is back claiming that the only thing keeping the New Jersey Devils from...

Lake Erie goalie Gerald Coleman is credited with 34 saves.
The NHL may loan money to the New Jersey Nets to allow the team to continue to operate the rest of the season.
