Mark Fayne has spent most of his life on the East Coast. But when an opportunity arose to go west, the Nashua, N.H., product jumped at it. Fayne, 27, will join the Edmonton Oilers blue-line this season, having signed as a free agent from the New Jersey Devils. On Tuesday, Fayne was touring his new city.

Cody Franson of the Leafs is on the block. Should the Oilers be interested?

 Franson, 26, is 6-feet, 5-inches and 213 pounds. He shoots right and almost always plays the right side, a position where the Oilers already have Jeff Petry, Justin Schultz and Mark Fayne. Franson should be heading into the peak years of his NHL career. His coach trusted him with the 4th amount of even strength icetime for d-men on the Leafs, but he got the second most amount...

Free agency really sucks for the Rangers

Fifteen minutes into free agency and things are really not going well for the Rangers. Pierre LeBrun reports that the Rangers are officially out on Anton Stralman, which sucks especially since Christian Ehrhoff took a remarkably below value deal of just one year and $4M to play with the Penguins next year. Mark Fayne is also off the board, he signed a four year deal with the Oilers...

Oilers Grab Fayne and Pouliot by   Curtis Morrison

The Edmonton Oilers have signed defenseman Mark Fayne and forward Benoit Pouliot to long-term deals, with Fayne signing for four years, and Pouliot getting a five year deal. Fayne spent last season with the New Jersey Devils, putting up 11 points in 71 games and performing as an underrated possession-based defenseman. He’ll be making 3.5 million per year over 4 [...]

Brooks: Rangers may target Mark Fayne, Ryan Carter

Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers may target ex-Devils Mark Fayne (27-year-old right-handed defenseman) and Ryan Carter (30-year-old left-handed center). It is assumed that Carter could feasibly replace the minutes played by the soon-to-be-departed Brian Boyle, and Fayne could replace the minutes played by the surely-to-receive-a-ridiculous-contract Anton Stralman. Looking at Fayne first...

Rangers Interested In Devils Free Agents, Not Dominic Moore

And the hot stove is officially burning as the rumors surrounding the Rangers are rampant. Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that the Rangers have “checked in with and have legitimate interest in” Devils UFA defenseman Mark Fayne as a possible replacement for Anton Stralman. The 27-year old, right-handed defenseman had four goals and seven assists last season while playing...

Rangers interested in Devils’ Fayne, Carter

Larry Brooks is reporting that the Rangers have ‘legitimate’ interest in soon to be former Devils defenseman Mark Fayne. Glen Sather is clearly getting his ducks in a row in the event that Anton Stralman‘s demands exceeds the team’s budget. The Rangers have already checked in on Dan Boyle, but the most logical replacement for Stralman is probably Fayne. At least in term...

Mark Fayne ahead of schedule in groin rehab

Defenseman Mark Fayne is “ahead of schedule” in his rehab following April 22 surgery to repair the core muscle in his left groin, but there have been no meaningful talks with the Devils regarding a new contract. Fayne, who turned 27 Thursday, can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. He earned $1.4 million in 2013-14. “We have not heard from the Devils yet, but I hope...

Who comes back to the Devils roster in 2014-15?

At the start of this offseason, the Devils were looking at a roster with eight unrestricted free agents that would be poised to hit the market place on July 1st. As we learned a few days ago, Jaromir Jagr would be the first of those aforementioned UFAs to return to the Devils next season, but who else will be following suit?   Forwards First up, we have four Devils forwards...

You looked down at the ice for one final time watching to see if there would be anything different about the way Martin Brodeur would respond to this victory, watched to see if the goaltender would do anything special on his way to the locker room after being congratulated at the Rock by teammates named Mark Fayne, Jaromir Jagr and Stephen Gionta the way he was so many times at the...

Despite Win NJ Still Needs To Address Issues

The Devils were excellent in their 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets last night. Henrique stepped up his game last night, much like I wrote about wanting him to prior to the game and much like I hope to see him do in this stretch run. Enough can’t be said about Jagr’s goal in the 1st and his determination not to give up on that play. Would love that work ethic translate...

Devils Get Dominated All Night But Still Win

You knew going into this game that we would be reminded over and over again that the last time the Devils were in this building, they lost the cup. At least it appears that we’ve gotten past the point of blaming Steve Bernier for it because I don’t recall being reminded of his boarding penalty too much. It did come up but it was glossed over, which it should have been. Yes, the...
