Devils Get Cap Relief With Matvichuk Injury

from the NY Post,
Devils defenseman Richard Matvichuk admitted yesterday he won't be ready for next month's NHL season opener, and he may not be in the lineup before December. "You have to be logical and start with skating before [considering] playing hockey," Matvichuk said yesterday at Codey Arena, where some teammates have begun unofficial workouts. Matvichuk is not yet close to taking the ice. The Devils can be expected to place Matvichuk and his $1.3 million salary on the long-term-injury list, meaning the team can replace the portion of his salary represented by his absence against the salary cap.
