And sincere congratulations to all #NJD fans. Ilya is a class act, a dedicated pro.

And I call Lou "Loophole Lou" with all respect possible, the guy gets it done.

Joe Yerdon from Pro Hockey Talk

Ilya back to the Devs. Well that was as anticlimactic as a first date with an ugly chick.

I feel bad for LA Kings fans today, and offer this consolation prize: Free admission to the Devils Cup parade in Newark next June

I wonder if "Brian Rolston" will be hockey for "Jimmy Hoffa" in the near future.

James O'Brien from Pro Hockey Talk

I guess Gorssman wants to keep his guys close to home or something.

Laura Astorian from Thrashing the Blues

Kovalchuk's a nice fall-back for the Devils, after Semin-for-Brodeur fell through. #clownshoes
