David Steckel Now Property Of The Toronto Maple Leafs

via Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,

The Devils traded center David Steckel to Toronto for a fourth-round draft choice today.

In 18 games with the Devils last season, the 25-year-old Wisconsin native had one goal. Steckel was traded to the Devils from the Capitals this past February.

“What has transpired in training camp with young players like Adam Henrique, we want to give the proper (ice) time to them,” Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “Brad Mills also had an excellent camp.

“We’re going to look into what we can do with Petr Sykora. He could be a center and Henrique could be a center.”

Steckel Backs Up Bradley’s Critique of Semin

From TSN:

Matt Bradley’s recent critique of Alexander Semin and his previous employer is being backed by another former Capital.

New Jersey Devils forward David Steckel, who spent the majority of last season with the Capitals before being traded in February, defended the comments of his former teammate.

Speaking to the Washington media, the 29-year-old did not dispute Bradley’s statements, which described a lack of effort from Semin and a lack of discipline from the team on the ice and in the playoffs.

“It’s not like he went out and told lies,” Steckel told reporters. “(He) didn’t really say anything bad about anybody. He just stated what he felt.”

Bradley, who signed with the Florida Panthers after six seasons in Washington, caused a stir with comments that he made in an interview with the Team 1200 radio station in Ottawa.

Southeast Division Statistical Previews by Position: Forwards

As the new season approaches, I’ll be making an effort to preview the Southeast Division in a slow and steady, comprehensive manner. To kick things off, I thought I’d take a look back at last year’s individual player statistics, updated to reflect this summer’s off-season transactions. (In other words, for example, we’ll group Dustin Byfuglien’s 2009-10 statistics with Chicago alongside his new Atlanta Thrashers teammates and their performances from last year.)

In short, we’ll look at last year’s stats with this year’s rosters, both by division as a whole and by individual teams, broken down by position… Because a look to the recent past can often be a good indicator of what’s to come. (Often… Not always. See: Cheechoo, Jonathan.) And, besides, I don’t know that you’ll find a list like this in too many places (at least I hope you won’t… Cause that would mean I spent too much time on all of this!)

To get things started, we’ll start tonight with the forwards.
