After one of the quietest weekends I can remember, we get back in to the swing of things with a new week and hopefully some new players to be signed to fill some rather large shoes that became vacant with the leaving of Scott Gomez and Brian Rafalski.
Rumors have been swirling around that Sheldon Souray was signed and it hasn’t been announce, he will sign this week, he signed with San Jose, etc. So don’t put any stock in what anyone has mentioned last week. Wait until the official thing is announce, and it’ll be posted then.
Also, the NHL is slated to announce the schedule for the upcoming season this week on Wednesday. We’ll have it posted then and we will all see when the Devils home opener will be. For those of you following the arena construction, even though it is “on schedule,” the Devils are expected to start the season away for the first few weeks in October. So do’t expect a home opener before October 20th.
