Robinson Back To Special Assignment Coach

via Mark Everson of the NY Post,

Hall of Famer Larry Robinson will not return to the Devils’ bench as assistant coach next season, GM Lou Lamoriello told The Post yesterday.

“It was his [choice],” Lamoriello said. “He did it for one year because we asked him to do it with Brent Sutter coming in.”

Lamoriello said Robinson will revert to his previous post as a special assignment coach.

Fedor Fedorov Plans To Play In The NHL

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Fedor Fedorov made it clear this morning that he didn’t sign with the Devils to play in Lowell this season. “That’s the only reason I’m here,” he said. “(Otherwise) there’s no point in me being here.”

Fedorov, 27, said he signed a one-way deal, meaning he’ll receive the same salary even if he’s in the AHL. It’s a one-year contract for $500,000.

Fedorov, the younger brother of Capitals center Sergei Fedorov, also stated firmly that the he is no longer under contract with Moscow Dynamo, the Russian team he played for last season, and doesn’t understand why he’s been suspended from international play by the International Ice Hockey Federation.

Man Of Steel

from the Star-Ledger,

Krawczyk’s sculpture is a 3-story, brushed stainless steel hockey player that will stand at the corner of Edison Place and Mulberry Street in Newark, on the northeast side of the Prudential Center arena….

The hockey player will be outside the entrance closest to Penn Station, and will glow with all the electricity of any big event night at the arena. It will be visible by train, by air, and by thousands of office workers in the glass-and-steel buildings of Newark’s Gateway area.

Bits Of Information

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

**From what I’ve been told, Brendan Shanahan’s agent Rick Curran received phone calls from several teams expressing interest in signing in the UFA left wing today. None of them were from the Devils.

**The Rangers are still in the bidding for Marian Hossa and Mats Sundin, but don’t have the room to sign both. Edmonton is said to have the best offer on the table for Hossa. Word is it’s for more than $9 million per season.

**If the Rangers land Hossa or Sundin, Jaromir Jagr’s days as a Ranger are likely over. There is a possibility that Jagr could go back to Pittsburgh, but it appears the market for Jagr is waiting on Hossa’s decision.

**Bobby Holik on whether the Devils’ fans will welcome him back after boing him since he left New Jersey to sign a five-year, $45 million deal with the Rangers in 2002: “I’ll tell you what, fans in New Jersey are somewhat spoiled and I don’t mean it in a bad way. They want their team to be successful. There’s nothing more important to them and because it’s been a great 12-13 years prior to last year. But if I give my best as I always had and make the team better, I think that’s all they (want). Yeah, there are going to be people who have opinions. I have opinions, too. So, we all do. And we’re all entitled to them. But the bottom line is I’m on that team to make the team better and I believe I can with whatever role they designate for me.”
