Found June 25, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
With the 2012 NHL Entry Draft over and done with and free agency right around the corner, Lou Lamoriello and the New Jersey Devils management staff have undoubtedly turned their attention to re-signing pending unrestricted free agents and restricted free agents. Here are some notes on that, as well as some other Devils related topics. - I'll start off with the big fish. Zach Parise's agent, Wad...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils post-draft notes + update on Zach Parise

The NHL Entry Draft is in the books, and in my opinion the New Jersey Devils did quite well. Today I'll provide a few notes on their draft picks, as well as an update on Zach Parise and more. I will do a more in-depth draft review for the Devils hopefully some time this week. - As I said yesterday, I'm starting to like the Stefan Matteau selection more and more. He doesn...

Devils' Fayne out 3-4 months

New Jersey Devils defenseman Mark Fayne had wrist surgery on Friday and may miss the start of the 2012-13 season, reported. Fayne had the scapholunate ligament of his left wrist repaired, and that typically sidelines a player for 3-4 months. Fayne, 25, is one of three players the Devils tendered qualifying offers to on Monday. He had four goals and 13 assists while playing...

Regner: Hall sends Shanny message

Brendan Shanahan is a Hall of Fame player. What he was able to accomplish on the ice ranks with the all-time greats of the game. But hockey is rooted in strong traditions and has a code of conduct that one is expected to uphold. Hockey players might be brutish on the ice, but the off-the-ice code calls for them to be gentlemen first and foremost. Combining talent, personality and...

Brendan Shanahan Snubbed From Hockey Hall of Fame in First Appearance on Ballot

This was Shanahan's first appearance on the Hall ballot, but he looked like a near-lock to earn admission. Continue reading →

Eklund: Could NJ's Decision to not Discuss Parise's Rights Be A Catalyst for Nash?

There is a funny quote out there... When reporters caught up with Lou Lamoriello and asked him if anyone had called about Parise's rights he responded.."No, because they know better." Classic Lou Lamoriello..the one GM that scares even the NHL front office...Lou is absolutely one of the most interesting men in our game.. I was sitting in front of him on media...

Waiting for Shanny Tuesday as former Red Wing Brendan Shanahan’s likely to receive a HHOF call

The Hockey Hall of Fame will announce its 2012 induction class tomorrow at 3 PM EDT (the announcement will be televised on TSN and the NHL Network U.S.), and it’s more or less guaranteed that former Red Wings forward Brendan Shanahan will receive a phone call from the HHOF’s selection committee sometime on Tuesday morning. As such,’s Bill Roose spoke to...

Wait, what? Red Wings’ Brendan Shanahan overlooked by the Hockey Hall of Fame?

I read the release from the Hockey Hall of Fame and couldn’t believe it. Long-time Red Wing Brendan Shanahan, his three Stanley Cups and 600-plus goals won’t be heading to Toronto this year, and I just can’t believe it. It’s insane.That’s it as I’m still sick, but I just can’t believe it. Pavel Bure and Adam Oates are fine players, as is Mats Sundin, but did they win...

The Exorcized Devils

By: Mike Luciano (@MikeLuci) I’ve certainly got some explaining to do. My New Jersey Devils made a remarkable run to the Stanley Cup Finals and since the inception of their 2012 postseason campaign, I can probably count the number of pieces I’ve posted on the fingers of one hand. Let me say there is a reason for my inconsistencies and absence from this site since April. Some...

Shanahan Shafted

Oates: In Sakic: In Sundin: In Bure: In And Brendan Shanahan has been unbelievably, unfathomably left out.  Bure and Sundin, yes.  Shanny…no.  It’s so pathetic that it’s hard to even muster any anger over this one. Continue reading "Shanahan Shafted"
