Devils roster purge rumors swirl
By Mike Hume
As the Devils try to clear cap space, The Post sites rumblings that GM Lou Lamoriello is hesitant to part with D Bryce Salvador, thought to be one of the most likely players to leave. The article also adds former first-round pick Matt Corrente to the speculation (likely as an incentive for teams to take on a bad contract) and sites the Toronto Maple Leafs as an oft-mentioned, but unlikely, trading partner.
The Sporting News offers a summer post-mortem with Ilya Kovalchuk’s agent, Jay Grossman, who says the decision came down to New Jersey’s ability to win night in and night out. I'm guessing the $100 million helped too. Just a little.
