Could you cite for me these multiple sources? I never heard anyone credible saying the Devils were in on Vrbata. Gulitti said he never heard anything.
To be fair, Gulitti never hears anything. He's good for the basic template of covering the team in-season and he helps follow up on stuff, but he never ever breaks anything of substance. He doesn't seem to have much intel outside of the rink. I mean, Brooks has beaten him several times with breaking stuff, on the Devils.
I can say there's been rumors of Lou having a Clowe/Cammalleri like crush on Vrbata for years, even back when he was with Carolina. So there might have been something.
I don't think we're expressly done (although I don't think there will be any big moves). I think it's possible there's a move to shuffle the forwards deck a little bit further with perhaps a trade and I think Lou is going to keep tabs on the possibility of adding a depth defenseman perhaps.
