could this be related to the stevens/shanahan fiasco in early 90's


Nah. That was done by the book. The free agent rules were very strict at the time - they were essentially forced trades. If the team losing the player didn't accept the other teams' compensation, they could counter with their own proposed compensation. If that was in turn rejected, it went to arbitration where one of the two compensation arrangements would be picked. St. Louis had to compensate for signing Shanahan and the Devils made the case that Rod Brind'amour and Curtis Joseph were useless to them. Hence, Scott Stevens.

Also ... Brooks worked for the Devils?


Yeah, he was one of the media relations/PR flacks for the club back in the '80's. During the '88 playoff doughnut incident, I remember him wearing these big coke bottle glasses, reading many official team statements to the media.
