On Twitter, Tom Gulitti confirmed the Devils re-signed Matthew Corrente to a 1 year, 2-way deal worth NHL minimum per CapGeek. In addition, Albany has signed right winger Alexandre Carrier and center Phil DeSimone. Additionally, the Devils have interest in the still-free-agent Petr Sykora.
Hall of Famer Larry Robinson has just been hired as associate coach of the San Jose Sharks. Two years, one-year option #Habs— Dave Stubbs (@Dave_Stubbs) July 8, 2012
Here's some surprising news from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette. Assistant coach Larry Robinson was just hired by San Jose for two years with an one-year option. This is a big blow to the Devils as Robinson worked with the defensemen and was quite successful. He was thinking about retirement, but I suppose he wanted a new challenge. The Devils now have two openings for assistant coaches.
Andy Strickland is reporting that the New Jersey Devils have re-signed Cam Janssen. It'll be a two-way deal where he'll get $575,000 in the NHL and $105,000 in the AHL for a season. Yeah, a guy with no goals, 1 assist, 17 shots, and less than 5 minutes of average ice time in 48 games while being a possession black hole got a new contract. I don't need to make a full post to explain that I don't like this move at all. Just look at the Player Usage Chart for NJ at Hockey Abstract and weep at #25.
