New Jersey still hopes to re-sign unrestricted free agent Ryan Carter.

The Devils already have 14 forwards on one-way contracts, so it's a bit odd that Carter is still on their radar. The team would have to move a body or two to make room for him. Carter had seven goals and 10 points in 62 games last campaign.

New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello wants to get something worked out with RFA defender Eric Gelinas done quickly.

"It's always a concern when a player isn't signed," Lamoriello said. "We'd like to get it done as soon as possible. I think it's in everybody's best interest. There's not much more I can say about it." Gelinas had seven goals and 29 points in 60 games with New Jersey last season.

New Jersey has been in talks with Tomas Kaberle about attending training camp on a tryout basis.

"He has talked to us about a tryout," Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said. "That has not been officially confirmed yet, but he has talked to us." The Devils want to give Jonathon Merrill, Adam Larsson and Eric Gelinas a chance to play this season, but Kaberle could be used as insurance at camp and serve as a veteran presence.

Scott Gomez has been invited to attend New Jersey's training camp.

"He felt he still had a lot of hockey in him and he's been working out this summer so I told him to come to camp," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "There are no promises. We certainly know what he has the capability of doing." In 46 games with the Florida Panthers last season, he contributed just two goals and 12 points. Gomez started his career with the Devils an played seven seasons with the club before signing a hefty seven-year, $51.5 million deal with the New York Rangers.

Michael Cammalleri is looking forward to getting a chance to play on the same team as future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr.

"He's one of the greatest legends of our game of all-time," Cammalleri said. "He's an iconic sports figure. To play on the same team as him will be a unique and special experience." He may end up playing with Jagr and Travis Zajac on the top line this season.

Tomas Kaberle hopes to return to the NHL this season.

He's working at the BioSteel Camp and could attend a team's training camp on a tryout basis. Kaberle played with HC Kladno in the Czech League last year, where he had 24 points in 48 games.

New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello expects Martin Brodeur to wait until the start of training camps to make a final decision on his playing career.

Lamoriello thinks that Brodeur wants to get a final overview of the market before deciding where he can play or if he'll retire. Veteran goalies Tomas Vokoun, Tim Thomas and Ilya Bryzgalov are also looking for work and there's no guarantee that Brodeur will be able to find a job with a contender. Lamoriello said that Brodeur has a job waiting for him with the Devils when he does decide to stop playing.

New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello and owner Josh Harris confirmed that a return for Ilya Kovalchuk hasn't entered their minds since he left the team.

"I'll answer that the best way you can. He cannot come back until he is 35," Lamoriello said. "He's (31) now. You'd never look at someone coming back at 35 when he's (31)." Kovalchuk can't come back before 2018-19 so the rumors that the two sides were working toward getting something done aren't true. He registered 16 goals and 40 points in 45 games with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL last season.

Mattias Tedenby has signed on to play for HV71 of the Swedish Hockey League in 2014-15.

He agreed to a deal with the KHL's Lev Praha in early June, but the team ceased operations for the upcoming season due to financial troubles. The New Jersey Devils still have his NHL rights. Tedenby played for HV71 before coming to North America.

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes likes the Devils' signing of Michael Cammalleri.

"He's obviously a goal scorer and it's not just his shot, but also his legs. He kind of got back to doing things to get open space, finding holes, eluding defenders, setting himself up in position to shoot," Weekes said. "I think he did an unbelievable job at that last year in Calgary. He really rediscovered his game." Weekes thinks Cammalleri will add leadership and some much-needed offense to New Jersey's forward group.

The New Jersey Devils were thrilled to get Andy Greene signed to a long-term deal.

He inked a five-year, $25 million deal in late July. "No question it was important for us to have Andy long-term," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "If you look at the top defensemen, he carries the most minutes. We have to try and keep ice time away from him to make sure late in the game he isn't tired. Another thing, his leadership goes unnoticed. He's a quiet leader and respected by the players. The young defensemen look up to him. And also, as he mentioned, he's a pure Devil. This is the only team he's been with and this is the team he wanted to be with." Greene will have a new defense partner in 2014-15 after Mark Fayne signed with Edmonton this off-season.
Aug 4 - 9:59 AM

The Devils are no closer to re-signing restricted free agent defenseman Eric Gelinas.

Gelinas does not possess arbitration rights so there is no urgency on the team to make an offer. Devils GM Lou Lamoriello stated Wednesday "There's nothing there, yet" with respect to negotiations with the blueliner.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello remains interested in re-signing forward Ryan Carter.

The team must clear roster space before it can make an offer to the unrestricted free agent, but all indications are that Carter will be back in New Jersey next season.
Aug 2 - 7:00 AM

The New Jersey Devils are starting an analytics department.

Sunny Mehta, who used to be a professional poker player, has been hired to head the department. He will report to Devils GM Lou Lamoriello. Mehta authored two books on the card game, but he's taken an interest in advanced statistics in recent years and has authored hockey blog posts on the subject.

Although Martin Brodeur hasn't signed yet, it's still very unlikely that he would return to New Jersey as a player.

New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said that the team and Brodeur have come to an understanding that they're both moving on. "It's a progression thing – that is Marty knowing what it is to be a No. 1 goaltender and to have that feeling and that's exactly what he feels Cory needs," Lamoriello said. "We feel the same way. We went through one year a different way. So, I think it's time to go forward, but never negate what Marty has brought nor was the door ever shut. It was a mutual understanding of what's best for both parties and Marty will always be a Devil." Brodeur will probably rejoin the Devils' organization in a front office capacity after he hangs up his skates.
