He [Parise] was asked twice about the potential for ever playing for the Rangers, the Devils' No. 1 rival and the team they beat in the Eastern Conference Finals, and both times emphatically responded "No," and added, "Don't try to get a headline out of it."

Dan Rosen reported at NHL.com that Zach Parise will not go to the Rangers. This certainly made me smile. Scratch one team off the list.

"The picks are not going determine that. You’re not going to just do this to get picks. Whatever decision is made is going to be made because you feel that you can do certain things and not hurt yourself. All you have to do is go back to the Marty Brodeur year. Those are decisions that you make and you don’t worry about what people think."

Lou Lamoriello tells Tom Gulitti why he wouldn't make a trade just to get a second round pick. In this quote, I've bolded what I think Lou's philosophy is on any kind of draft-day deals - regardless if picks are involved.

I am a kind of person who never looks back. I only look to the future. There is no point feeling sorry for the past. You have to live for today and look forward to what's ahead of you.I will now play for a team that is always a contender for the Stanley Cup.It's something that I always wanted.

Ilya Kovalchuk on whether he regrets not taking Atlanta's offer in February. This comes from Dmitry Chesnokov's fantastic exclusive interview with Ilya Kovalchuk at Puck Daddy. The emphasis in this quote was done by me.

Mottau admitted that he "would have rather played "Tuesday if he had a say, but accepted Lemaire’s decision to sit him. "The coaches decide to rest guys here and there and at this point in the saeson I take it as a positive," Mottau said. "Use the rest and then come back ready to go the last few games and into the playoffs."

Tom Gulitti asks Mike Mottau for his opinion for being scratched in the recent Atlanta game. I'm highlighting this quote from Gulitti's story about Jamie Langenbrunner breaking his silence because this is an entirely appropriate and reasonable way to look at it. Far better than Langenbrunner's response to being given a night off. To me, he came across as petulant by not talking to the media and in this post. It's uncharacteristic of him, it brings unnecessary attention on the team right before the playoffs, and he just doesn't look like a captain out of all of this. Good thing it's over - I hope.

"I know that if you’re close to making it [the playoffs], you think about that. It’s something that is going to push you, maybe. But I thought that the job was to be at your best, to play at your best. I don’t think it says to be at your best only when there’s something on the line. I don’t know. An athlete plays a sports and he’s got to play his best every time he plays."

Jacques Lemaire tells Tom Gulitti why he doesn't think the Devils need any extra motivation. Interesting quote, to say the least. Thoughts?

The Devils’ non-Olympians resume practice at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Prudential Center and the hope is that defenseman Paul Martin and right wing David Clarkson will be able to participate. "We’re waiting for the doctors’ OKs," Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told me this morning.

Tom Gulitti reports that not only will the New Jersey Devils practice tomorrow for the first time in weeks, but Paul Martin and David Clarkson might be involved too. Clarkson AND Martin? That would be massive if they get the medical approvals to practice. That's right. A week from now, we're back to Devils (and NHL) hockey. Just a small reminder.

"The teams are here, the officials are here, so, as we speak, the game is on," Lamoriello said at 10:45 a.m..

Per Gulitti, there will, in fact, be a game tonight. Yes, this is a rivalry game, but it's more important to be safe. Keep this in mind before traveling up/down to Newark. ALSO: If you normally take NJ Transit, keep tabs on any alerts at their site. Already, the Northeast Corridor line has canceled a train now.

"The reason we got Alex Mogilny at that time was for similar reasons: what he could bring offensively with the shot he had and he could do almost individually at times, but still be a team player. I feel that Iyla can bring that sort of explosiveness and also I really believe strongly that he wants to win and he will fit in."

Lou Lamoriello, comparing the move to bring in Kovalchuk to his move about a decade ago to bring in Alexander Mogilny to New Jersey, as reported by Gulitti. In case you're wondering when the last time Lou made a move like this. Check out that post. Parise's excited, Kovalchuk's excited, Salmela's excited, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Lou's excited. New Jersey Devils Status as of Feb. 4 & 5, 2010: Excited.

"We had a couple of beers and just hung out," Brodeur said, downplaying it. "Celebrating these things…I'm not done playing the game so there will be more."

Martin Brodeur comments on how he celebrated his 104th shutout, as written by NHL.com's Dan Rosen. (P.S. Article has links to excellent NHL.com articles related to the achievement, like this one.) I absolutely love the last part - I had to bold it. Speaking of Brodeur #104 pieces, I absolutely loved Greg Wyshynski's post on the record at Puck Daddy. I know Tibbs linked it, but it's a must-read, so there it is again.

"Oduya has been better," Lemaire said on Monday. "But he can do more as far as his skating with the puck and breakout passing." Lemaire did not blame rust for hampering Oduya’s play. He has had time to re-acclimate himself. "It’s got to be him pushing a little harder," the coach said.

Jacques Lemaire talks up Johnny Oduya, as reported by Andy McCullough for the Star Ledger. Given some of the comments here, I figured with the return of Oduya and this story, it was time for a new featured poll. Does Oduya improve his play by the end of next month?
