New Jersey Devils
It seems that GM Lou Lamoriello is not in a rush to clear cap space. He has said that he'd like to see how training camp goes, which is a smart management move. A few players could be traded and Langenbrunner has recognized the possibility of being traded. However, he'd like to stay with the team.
Also, the Devils were fined $3 million, lost one first round pick in the next four years, and lost one of their 2011 third round picks as punishment by the NHL for attempted cap circumvention. Sigh...NHL.
Daymond Langkow will not be making the team for training camp as he still remains on LTIR.
The veteran winger has agreed to a tryout with the Philadelphia Flyers. He will most likely sign with them for less than $1 million soon.
Reports are saying that Oilers GM Steve Tambellini has requested that Sheldon Souray not show up to training camp and that he intends on moving him before October. Let's see if Tambellini is all talk this time.
Ryder could be on his way out when Marco Sturm makes his way back into the lineup and out of LTIR. The forward has underperformed and could either be demoted or traded soon.
Thomas will not be traded any time soon, but there are quite a few suitors out there that show interest. Reports are saying that although Thomas won't be moved now, there have been a few teams that have contacted Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli about his services.
Sources are saying that negotiations are finally going well between Rangers GM Glen Sather and RFA defenseman Marc Staal. A deal could be done by Friday as training camp starts that day.
The veteran has received no interest to date. Sad, to say the least. Part of the hype machine in Toronto, Tucker was a fan favorite and used his fists to talk. I think a playoff team could easily fit him under the cap and use his services.
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
