Report: Devils Re-Sign Pandolfo and Brylin

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

At Fire & Ice, Tom Gulitti reports:

It appears they have re-signed Jay Pandolfo and Sergei Brylin as well [as Bryce Salvador, reported earlier], but i’m still waiting for comfirmation on that. The Devils have called an 11:15 a.m. conference call with Lou Lamoriello to “discuss the team’s players.”  I’ll give updates and more detail when I acquire them.

update 11:28am, Now updated with this,

The Devils have re-signed left wing Jay Pandolfo and defenseman Bryce Salvador, the team announced this morning.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello also announced that they have passed on the option on Sergei Brylin’s contract for $1.52 million. Lamoriello did not rule out signing Brylin at a later date, but said he will become an unrestricted free agent at noon. Arron Asham will also become an UFA.

Keep An Eye On Chicago

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

If the rumor mill is any indication, the one team I’d keep a close eye on is the Chicago Blackhawks. GM Dale Tallon has somewhere in the area of $13 million to spend and I fully expect him to come away with one of the higher-end, puck-moving defensemen (Brian Campbell, Wade Redden, Mark Streit or Michal Rozsival) over the course of the next 24-48 hours.

One of the more intriguing side plots I’ll be watching is the level of interest in two players – Todd Bertuzzi and Ray Emery – whose less-than-ideal reputations precede them in a major way.

Busy Day in Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Paul Kukla at NHL.com,

While many of you will be sitting back and keeping tabs on all of the UFA movement, some of us will be hard at work.  How hard will we be working, well I went to Lyle Richardson, aka Spector and asked him what his UFA days will consist of.

How busy will you be Lyle?

The NHL’s unrestricted free agency period is one of the busiest times of year for me, topping even the NHL trade deadline for sheer volume of traffic. It’s the first two days that are the most hectic as that’s when the bidding for, and the signing of, the top UFA players is at its most frenzied. I’m almost a shut-in during those two days, rarely venturing outside my home as I track the rumors and signings.
