Here are the Devils’ potential free agents:

Player Status What happens?

Will Devils’ David Clarkson consider signing with hometown Maple Leafs?

Devils right winger David Clarkson loves coming home to Toronto.

“This is my favorite place to play,” he said of the town in which he grew up as a Maple Leafs fan.

But will Clarkson, who can become an unrestricted free agent after this season, think about signing with the Leafs to play in his hometown? He gets asked that a lot around here.

Are Devils’ defensemen trade bait for a top six forward?

Even before the Devils hit a rut and began to falter over the last half-dozen games, general manager Lou Lamoriello was formulating a plan for what the team needs to become a serious Stanley Cup contender post-Parise.

Martin Brodeur doesn’t rule out 2014 Olympics appearance for Canada

If Team Canada comes calling, Martin Brodeur will listen. Despite the fact he’ll be 41 years-old-during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Brodeur said today that he’s interested if he’s welcome there.

Initially, after playing in his fourth Olympics for Canada in 2010, Brodeur assumed it would be his last one. But with the Olympics only a year away and with him still playing, there is a renewed interest on his part.

Brodeur said that “a lot of people” have been talking to him about the topic lately.

Devils were interested in Gomez

The Devils were interested in bringing Scott Gomez back after the Montreal Canadiens bought out his contract. However, Gomez thought it would be better to play on the West Coast and signed with the San Jose Sharks.

There was also some interest in unrestricted free agent Petr Sykora, who ultimately signed with SC Bern in the Swiss League. Sykora would be eligible to sign with an NHL club when Bern’s season is over and prior to the April 3 NHL trade deadline, but he’d have to go through waivers.
