Nice coffee, herman.  :D :)

Brodeur is either going to go back to New Jersey or team up with Lamoriello in Long Island.

You’re welcome :) just to clarify, I didn’t brew this gem.

There’s a report out that he’s going to be working the business side of the Devils’ hockey ops.

Re: Trevor Linden's firing

Linden favoured a more patient approach to rebuilding the Canucks, while GM Benning preferred a more aggressive one.  Obviously the failure to pursue Tavares did not sit well with the Canuck owners:

Quote
From Ed Willes of the Vancouver Sun on Monday:
“Trevor Linden, the recently deposed president, lost his job because he favoured a patient, methodical approach to the team’s rebuild.
“He’s since told friends the Aquilinis wanted no part of that plan and when Benning presented a more aggressive approach, which included an offer sheet for John Tavares, Linden was dumped,” Willes wrote.

Brodeur is joining the Devils as its vice-president of business development. To the best of my knowledge, Brodeur does not have any kind of post-secondary education, which would probably disqualify literally anybody else on the planet from being able to earn that kind of job. He must have really nailed the interview process.

Kinda like he nailed his... oh wait this is a family site.

How do you offer sheet a UFA??  Isn't it just a contract offer? But then again Canucks Owner and key folks might not know he was UFA.

Underestimate Benning’s lack of comprehension, and the Sun Media’s level of writing quality at your own peril.

That's Pacioretty's new agent, the never-shy Allan Walsh, openly accusing the Habs of spreading rumours that Pacioretty wants to leave Montreal and then confirming a report that Montreal was prepared to deal him to LA at the draft. Fun times.

I don't know, if I were Pacioretty I probably would have taken that LA trade.  He's American, you get to live in a city by the ocean and pretty much fly under the radar after years of constantly being under the microscope in Montreal.  There's a lot to like about LA.
