Rise and shine Devils fans!!  A couple of tidbits on Jersey’s team, as well as some labor talks with some other goodies mixed in.  Also, late last night we posted an article about the team’s warmup music for this past season, in turn, helping me to stomach pop music.  CLICK HERE for the piece.  Have a great Thursday!

Adam Gretz of CBSSports.com has a nice piece that details a “What If?” scenario.  The article goes over what the Devils would look like if their lineup if they lived in a world where there was no free agency and their roster could only be of home-grown players that are all on current rosters in the NHL.  Give it a glance HERE.

Summer grades for the offseason are out at SI.com.  Allan Muir is rather harsh on the Devils, but who can blame him?  The Devils have not done much since free agency hit on July 1.  Check it out HERE.

How would the new proposals on the table from the NHL and NHLPA affect certain teams?  John Boruk of CSN Philly thinks the new CBA offers on the table would hurt the big market teams.  Find the full article HERE.

The ECHL Fort Wayne Komets have reached an agreement to be affiliated with the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals for the 2012-13 season.  More details HERE.

Jeff Z. Klein of the New York Times takes a look into the latest updates on the NHL labor talks.  Some solid headway was made on Tuesday but things slowed down considerably on Wednesday.
