Though Kyle Palmieri's contract negotiations remain in their early stages, it sounds like he anticipates the process going fairly smoothly.
The Devils are interested in signing Palmieri to a long-term contract this summer. He's eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer and possess arbitration rights, so even if the two sides can't work out a long-term deal, he's expected to still be back in 2016-17. "I think things will probably move quickly once both sides establish the parameters," Palmieri said. "The rest of it is banging out the details and getting everything right. I assume Ray is pretty busy leading up to the draft [June 24-25] and, as an RFA, there’s nothing that we really have to rush for, no dates we have to get something done by. Right now, it’s just testing it out and establishing a market and getting the right deal done." He broke out in 2015-16 with 30 goals and 57 points in 82 contests. Jun 16 - 9:45 AM
