How secret were these talks? Secretive enough that Cory Schneider was as in the dark as the rest of us.

I wouldn't expect the Devils to forfeit the first rounder this year -- not unless they absolutely hate the first round talent. You'd have to think they at least want to make a first-round pick in the draft they're hosting.

Pete DeBoer isn't just an excellent strategist and a very good coach, he doesn't sugarcoat it. I really respect that about him.

Despite sometimes being on a difficult channel to find, the Devils are doing splendidly on local television thus far this season. It's an impressive feat considering the lockout, but just does to show that this team has a dedicated fan base that sometimes gets overlooked because of ownership's financial restraints.

It's a classy and smart comment Marty, and really, I'd expect no less. We'll get into this more tomorrow when we delve into the 2014 Olympics a little deeper.

Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice spoke to the Devils' resident Russian, Ilya Kovalchuk, about the Russian-born rookie currently destroying NHL goaltenders all over the Western Conference -- Blues winger Vladimir Tarasenko.

In easily one of the most bizarre moments of the season, someone in the crowd at TD Bank Garden tonight threw something onto the ice and in the direction of Devils goalie Johan Hedberg during Tyler Seguin's shootout attempt.

https://twitter.com/Ledger_NJDevils/status/296454368281120771

Hedberg admitted he was distracted by the flying hot dog (Shaun White's new nickname?) and the refs forced Seguin to shoot again. Of course, Seguin scored again anyway, but I'd expect this didn't over too well at the NHL's offices. Can you imagine if this had happened on NBC? Wait -- if something bad happens and it's not on NBC, does it even happen? Hmmm.

Sykora was mentioned during training camp as someone the Devils might look at to help bolster their forward depth, although Lou Lamoriello threw cold water on the idea of the Devils signing any free agent. I find it hard to believe he didn't score an NHL offer after scoring 21 goals last season. My guewss is the money/offers in North America weren't enough to dissuade him from heading to Europe. With Sykora out of the picture and Jason Arnott reportedly too hurt to pass a physical, whatever free agent options the Devils might have considered at some point seem to be dwindling. No pressure, Matt Anderson.

While Stefan Matteau waits to find out his fate, the Devils' stretched-out early schedule means other teams have to make decisions on their high-profile juniors players first.

UPDATE: That means we'll likely see the same line combinations the Devils rolled out in practice yesterday, starting with Stefan Matteau on the first line at left wing.

Here's what else Devils fans should expect to start the game tonight, with Martin Brodeur in net:

As I wrote on Twitter, I think this is a goodmove for the Rangers. Their bottom six was pretty depleted during the offseason and Arnott can give them solid minutes on the third or fourth line and provides them with good veteran depth. You know -- that doesn't sound too far from what the Devils could use. Just saying.

Don't expect much of a celebration of last year's conference title at tonight's home opener. The Devils have already put their banner up.

It's at least 48 games away, but Clarkson's impending free agency could be the biggest story of the summer for the Devils. Clarkson stunned everyone with a 30-goal season last year and could set himself up for a very nice pay day with a similar season -- a pay day that very well could price the Devils out of his services. The Devils will have around $26 million in available cap space (according to the wonderful Cap Geek) entering next season, which seems like a lot until you look at who needs to be re-signed. In addition to Clarkson, Dainius Zubrus and Patrik Elias will be UFAs and Adam Henrique and Jacob Josefson will be RFAs. They may also choose to re-sign Marek Zidlicky, also an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Assuming Henrique performs to expectations, you're probably looking at deal at least equal to what Matt Duchene signed before this season: Two years, $6.5 million. That's also assuming Ryan O'Reilly doesn't drive the market price up with his holdout this year. Elias is in the final year of a contract that will carry a $6 million cap hit this year. While it's unrealistic to expect him to get that kind of money at the age of 37, it wouldn't be crazy to see something in the neighborhood of Shane Doan's latest ($4.5M annual hit adjusted to probably $4M in the new CBA). As for Josefson, I'd expect him to get taken to arbitration unless he exceeds expectations or takes a team-friendly deal. And Zubrus? He can probably expect to land some offers in the $2-$3 million range if he posts a 40-point pace this season. Not even taking into account Zidlicky or Clarkson, you're looking at around $12 million to keep those four players for a Devils team that is still kinda broke and will NOT spend to the cap.

According to TSN's ?Renaud Lavoie, Martin Brodeur has "no intention" to call it quits after this season, no matter how it ends.

Lavoie tweeted, "Martin Brodeur said he has no intention to retire at the end of the final..."

Brodeur expressed earlier this season that he feels great and would like to play next season.

Prior to yesterday's Devils vs. Panthers game, Hockeybuzz's Todd Cordell tweeted,

Darren Dreger just said on TSN that he expects Brodeur to return for one more year, but if he doesn't NJ could have interest in Luongo
Earlier in the day, reports emerged from Vancouver that Roberto Luongo would waive his no-trade clause if Canucks choose Cory Schneider.

First of all, Martin Brodeur is not going anywhere next season. I am 99.9 % sure that he will be back with the Devils. Second of all, Luongo is not the same Luongo I remember when it comes to the decisive games. He is already 33-years old and has 10 more years left on his 12-year contract. Also, his cap hit is $5.33 million.

As per Bob McKenzie, The New Jersey Devils claim center Ryan Carter. Carter was placed on waivers earlier this week by the Florida Panthers. This move was definitely made to fill the spot left vacant due Jacob Josefson's injury. He will join the team in Phoenix and may play Thursday against the Coyotes.

Some stats on Carter:
