Via Mitrle's Twitter:

Devils announce they've signed Kitchener Rangers defenceman Dan Kelly.


Hooray for having a good Irish name in the system for the inevitable departure of Cory Murphy. Beyond that, I know nothing of him. Those who follow the juniors care to chime in?

from his stats, looks like nothing special.

defensemen signed for next year by new jersey:

c. white
b. salvador
a. greene
m. fraser (RFA)
a. salmela
-------------
m. corrente
t. eckford
m. taormina
r. davison
h. young
d. kelly

i guess they do need another D man for albany if they let magnan go (and even if they don't).

His list consists only of signed players, so I'm guessing Greene is unsigned for next season.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

It's so hard to judge a defensive defenseman on paper. I'll look forward to what he looks like in camp.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

and the youth movement continues for the Devils. Don't think any of these two players will play next season for the Devils, but Albany is going to have some team this coming season. Two good signings today by Lou.

Probably among the top 5 shutdown defensmen in the OHL. He is not a plug signing, many teams were after him from what I heard.

Found his HF Profle

While not blessed with the phenomenal size of a Bortuzzo or the elite offensive dash of a Weber, Kelly plays a nice hybrid game, that’s attractive to teams looking for a versatile blueliner to add to their roster. The Morrisonville, NY native isn’t going to push too many people around at 6’, 171, but he’s shown an ability to control the zone by making the smart first pass and has developed a solid game based on proper positioning.



Sounds like Mike Mottau version 2.0.

Oh, you're right. Didn't notice that before. I guess there isn't one more recent?
