Happy Friday NJ Devils fans! Hopefully there is a lot more movement on the labor talk front today. Besides that, we have one Devils link regarding an old friend in Sean Avery, couple of player notes as well as some uniform and smart spenders links. Enjoy!
Avery has apparently retired from hockey (and not a minute too soon I might add). He also added that if he was on the New York Rangers this past season, they would have beaten the Devils in the Conference Finals (riiiiiiiiiiiiiight). Anyways, here is the story via New York Magazine.
Bloomberg Business Week has ranked the smartest spenders in all of professional sports. Of the 122 teams, the Devils pulled in the top 50…not too shabby. Find the list HERE.
Remember a few days ago when ESPN released their NHL uniform rankings? Well now they’ve combined all 122 sports teams and have ranked them. Once again, the Devils ranked in the top 50. Find the full rankings HERE.
Frantisek Kaberle, formerly of the LA Kings, Atlanta Thrashers and Carolina Hurricanes, has retired from the NHL. He could not come to an agreement with the one Czech League team he wanted to sign with, so he will hang up his skates. Find the full article HERE.
One of the more exciting young players in the league had his contract extended yesterday. Jordan Eberle of the Edmonton Oilers will be sticking around for another six seasons and will be paid nearly $40 million. Story HERE.
