Nelson Peltz (Wendy's Owner) & The NY Post Conspiracy!

Jon Merrill Refuses to Show Up For Practice

11

Alright let's get this out of the way first... this is a Hockeybuzz link. Yeah, yeah, I know. But this isn't an Eklund report. Brian Huddle seems to strictly cover NHL prospects. But I guess you can all decide for yourself how much stock you want to put into the article. JUST SAY WHAT HE DID ALREADY!!!!!!!

Yes!!! We Got 2 of the Top 10 Untradable Contracts

Maybe it's me but I think Proteau's list is a bit flawed when some of these "untradables" (like Elias & Kovalchuk) have never had either the fans or the media clamoring for them to actually be traded.

#11 In the East Baby!!! Oh Yeah!

28

Oh yeah! Back to form... oh drat, that's #11 not #1. Well The Hockey News is the first of the big media outlets to start their regular season predictions and the future hey see ain't that bright. "Which Devils team will start the 2011-12 season? Will it be the one that broke out of the gate at a snail's pace last season and ultimately forced the team short of a playoff spot for the first time since 1996? Or will it be the one that caught fire down the stretch and played as the NHL's best second-half team? The Devils defense isn't what it was in their championship days and Martin Brodeur is only a year older. The offense has to find a way to click and new coach Peter DeBoer, who didn't win anything in Florida, has a difficult task ahead. In the end, the Devils are somewhere in between a basement-dweller and a playoff team." I sometimes wonder if we as Devils fans just really overvalue the team and some of the guys on the roster OR if majority of Hockey Journalists don't really pay much attention or know what's going on in the organization beyond the marquee players.

Lou Trying to Woo Lemaire Back? Therrien Plan B?

30

Mark Everson is reporting today that the hold up on the Devils coaching vacancy is Lou is still trying to woo Lemaire back to the job and that Therrien is plan B if he is unsuccessful. Lemaire denied last week yet again he would come back and Therrien is the only person that's been confirmed to have interviewed for the position albeit a very long time ago. Lou's gotten Lemaire to unretire twice now, so who knows? Maybe this is really the hold up, Neverson or not.

Latest proposal between Ilya Kovalcuk, the New Jersey Devils and the NHL will be approved

3

Everson broke it first... kind of like the whole 17 year/ 100+ mill deal. So say what you will about "Neverson" and the Post but the Post has a source. People forget or just don't realize that Larry Brooks used to be part of the Devils organization. Chesnokov now has multiple tweets alluding to the same. Still no official word and TG and Chere have not chimed in.

Ilya Kovalchuk exploring KHL options

45

Disheartening news. It looks like the NHL wants it's cake and eat it too. It isn't enough that we're almost guaranteed a lockout in two years, but that the league may also lose one of it's marquee stars. Great job! On the positive note I get the feeling that maybe by Monday of next week we'll at least know finally, 100% for certain if Kovalchuk is a Devil or is going to the KHL. KHL season starts on Sept 8th.

Mark Everson Report: Kovy to Devs for 7 years/60 mill

222

Mark Everson is not my favorite Devils reporter but he isn't Eklund. He floated this out there today from what one "source" of his has suggested. Looks like Pierre LeBrun is also getting in on this. Also a very interesting tweet from Larry Brooks. If true, Marty seems very happy. Editor's Note: I'm front paging this for all Kovalchuk related discussion. I'm not saying anything unless it's official. Editor's Note Pt. 2: Jay Grossman says nothing's happening today. Lesson: Don't always buy into speculation, or at least not from Everson.

Stan Fischler Comes Down Hard on Martin!

16

Wow! A lot of vitriol in this article by Fischler directed towards Martin. Now I know Fischler is basically a paid cheerleader for the team (via MSG), but still. All he needed to do was say "So we lost Martin, big deal? We got Volchenkov and Tallinder!" But NOOOOOO! He digs in about Martin's shortcomings, not living up to his potential and he honestly seems ecstatic to see Martin gone.
