    I guess JQ, Seney, Rooney, Stafford & Yakovlev, Gryba, Ty Smith... Blackwood is still on the team but he's insurance for the long road trip, I assume.

    More roster action... down to 29: @NJDevils New Jersey has assigned forwards Joey Anderson, Michael McLeod and Marian Studenic to @BingDevils. In addition, the club has placed forward Nick Lappin on waivers.

    My condolences DevsMan. Same story for me & my spouse - no kids, just our pup (he's over 13 now) - I'm so sorry you're going through this. 😢

    So Mark Fayne was released from his PTO with the Bruins & Beau Bennett was released from his KHL team (Minsk) after 5 games...

    New MSG Devils host

    I'm in the camp "if you don't want to read that stuff then skip over it or unfollow". I unfollowed Abbey early on - I get enough info from other sources and, for me, she has 0 value add. Amanda doesn't bother me at all. Some stuff I skip/skim over but the vast majority of her tweets are Devils related and interesting. I like that she has a personality & isn't afraid to show it. I didn't even remember the guy she met while traveling but it obviously made a big impression on some lol. It's whatever but I think we're lucky to have her... She's really embraced being a part of the Devils "family". I think she brings excitement & a fan's energy to the job. Love Julie now but I didn't like her covering the Devils. She's much better suited to reporting on the Prospects; it seems to be where her heart is (prospects... and traveling). I enjoy her podcasts too. TG was like Spock/Data/Si-mok Hwang. Miss him very much but the personality of wet cardboard. I'd take him over all the others in a NY min. Gross was OK... IMHO, TG ruined that job for anyone else - no one would give us more information. Don't remember anyone complaining when he would tweet about music or his daughters. I actually liked it - it made him more human than TG. I like Chris Ryan but it's rare he tweets out something different than what out there from other sources. He keeps it very professional. I don't miss Chere one iota; never followed him on twitter. Todd Cordell is great - I enjoy his writing/tweets. But you have to overlook his other interests that he tweets about - and all his coverage of Calgary (the other team he covers for Hockey Buzz).

    Running around today (sorry if someone already posted this quote) - Ray lookin to make a move? : Corey Masisak of The Athletic: New Jersey Devils GM Ray Shero when asked about any trade talks.

    @amandacstein: Andy Greene is the captain. Hall will continue to wear the A. #NJDevils Taylor Hall: "It's really the first time I've been able to come into a training camp with some team success under my belt and that made for a really exciting off-season." Nico Hischier calls opportunity to bring Devils to Switzerland a "once in a lifetime opportunity." To play in his native Switzerland, in front of friends, family and against the team he skates with in the summer is a big honour for him. Nico Hischier feels much more at ease coming into Year 2 than his rookie season. Says he gained about 8 lbs of muscle this season to be faster and stronger. Wants to learn from playing with Hall to “do something every shift.” Jesper Bratt says he worked on increasing his stamina to be able to handle the 82 game regular season. Wasn’t happy with how his season ended last year. Also, one random/funny thing from Chris Ryan: @ChrisRyan_NJ Andy Greene said new defenseman Egor Yakovlev looks like a "Russian Adam Henrique" so that's how I'll be referring to him from now on.

    Lou goes nowhere without his entourage. Conte, Lemaire (Pelligrini & S Gio)... who's next? Is Larry Robinson still with St Louis?

    In other "news" ... 😄 Kyle Dubas said he will not be continuing on with Lou's rules of no facial hair with #Leafs. Says Leafs are asking for nine-month long commitment from players and families and therefore will let them express themselves (professionally) however they choose. So, beards are in. — Kristen Shilton (@kristen_shilton) September 13, 2018

    From Bastian's blog... surprised a NYR fan didn't give them more sh*t for wearing Devils gear 😅 and he listed Marty's accomplishments? That's crazytown. The best entertainment so far might have come at the rest stop. Q was in line to buy a drink and there was a guy who saw the Devils logo on his warm up and thought he was a fan and started talking about the team and Taylor Hall and Cory Schneider’s injury and Q just kind of nodded, smiled and responded politely. Then, Schmelzer walked over and he had a Devils t-shirt on. The guy goes, “Oh, another fan!” and continues to share his opinions on the team. Then, he saw Mackenzie Blackwood, who was also in line, and asked if he’d ever heard of “Martin Brodeur, the best goalie of all time.” Blackie jokingly said he was just ok and the guy started listing his stats including his recent selection to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Despite the fact that he said he was a Rangers fan, that guy might be the best part of the trip back to Jersey. For all of us, the chance to be at an NHL main camp is something that we’re all pretty grateful for. Not a lot of kids growing up playing hockey get a chance to do that, so we’re all looking forward to making the most of it and having the chance to skate with players like Taylor Hall. They’re always so impressive and there so much we can learn from them. It will be a lot of fun.

    @mikemorrealeNHL Ray Shero on Miles Wood (RFA): "I respect his decision but look forward to having him under contract at some point really soon." Shero said he hasn't spoken to Wood camp in a week but he feels nothing more needed to be said. Shero said Cory Schneider will not participate in any exhibition gms. He's still not sure about the opener (10/6). Said he'll speak to Kevin Morley (head athletic trainer) & Chris Stackpole (head physical therapist) to find out if CS can skate w/ team or on own during camp. Shero said, right now, he would expect Schneider to travel w/ the team to Switzerland/Sweden. But said he needs to find out from trainers what is best for his rehab.
