Coutesy of the New York Post:

The Devils waived D Dan McGillis yesterday, and if unclaimed his $2.2 million salary likely goes to Lowell. No cap help, though, since he’s not been on the list that is already over the season-opening limit . . . Lou Lamoriello said Patrik Elias, who has missed the last three exhibitions, has a “cold.”

Devils Madden Hurt!!

The Devils might get through this off season Cap issue without having to make any deals after all. John Madden who makes $3.9 million (although only $2.9 million of it is the cap hit due to a front loaded contract) is yet to play in a pre-season game, participate in team practice, and continues to skate on his own. It has been reported he had off season surgery due to a hernia and might miss considerable time according to the NY Post and Bergen Record.

Peca looking exceptional

Two assists and a few big hits was all it took for me to love Mike Peca. Of course it is still not known whether the peca we got is the 8 goal peca who played for the oilers last season or the peca who scored 6 goals, got 34 hits and blocked 24 shots in 24 playoff games. I personally think we got the playoff peca because he is comeing off of a terrific post season and because he is playing in his hometown where he will presumeably play with a great deal of heart trying to get his favourite team to the playoffs.
