from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
The Devils have already locked up forward Dainius Zubrus for three more years at $3.1 million per, which I reported first last Wednesday and he confirmed this morning. I’m hearing a deal that will bring Patrik Elias back for more than one season is basically done. There might be some final details to be ironed out, but that’s it.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello stopped just short this afternoon of saying that Elias’ deal is done.
“Patrik, I think it’s very close,” Lamoriello said of re-signing the Devils’ all-time leading scorer. “I think we’ll have that worked out.”
The news doesn’t sound as positive with potential UFA right wing David Clarkson and it appears he will be testing the market and seeing what other teams are willing to pay him.
Of re-signing Clarkson, Lamoriello said today, “David, I don’t know at this point. We’ll certainly talk and I’ll leave it at that.”
