Now that school has started for me, the ease of getting to a computer becomes limited to early in the morning, and very late at night. For my absense on the website for the past couple of days I apologize. Now that things are slowly calming down, I figured I would get back into things here on KK. I have news on the Devils bankruptcy rumor, some player who will be joining the Devils on a tryout, and some other interesting bits of information.

From Tom Gulitti at Fire and Ice:
“I would love to play another year and maybe more. I don’t know,” the 37-year-old Moscow native said today after a lengthy workout at the Devils’ practice facility. “I feel healthy and I had no problems last year. And I know if I stop now years later I’m probably going to think about, ‘What if I played another year?’ That would be something that, obviously, I would love to do and did for so many years.”
Where would he play?
“That’s the question,” Brylin said. “I don’t have a contract right now, so I don’t know. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen and it’s probably going to be in Russia because I know it’s tough get a job here in the NHL when you’re 37 and you’ve been out of the league for three years, but we’ll see what’s going to happen.”
I pointed out to Brylin that Jaromir Jagr did exactly that before signing with the Flyers on July 1.
via Slap Shot at the NYT,
Sergei Brylin has signed a three-year contract with SKA St. Petersburg, the club’s coach, Barry Smith, said Monday night. Smith’s remarks were reported in the Russian daily Sport-Express.
from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
Although it’s been reported that Sergei Brylin has signed with SKA-St. Petersburg of the Russian Continental League, I received a message from Sergei this morning saying that he “hasn’t signed a contract for next season.”
From Jeff Z. Klein at Slapshot:
The Russian sports Web site championat.ru is reporting that Sergei Brylin, the longtime Devils forward, has signed a contract with SKA St. Petersburg of the Russian Continental Hockey League.
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.
