Rumors are circulating from some credible sources (not Eklund) that the Devils may be shopping Elias. If true, it is likely a prelude to signing Ilya Kovalchuk but, more importantly, a possible indication that they cannot do so without a trade and dumping salary. If any team out there bails out New Jersey from their inept contracts, Surly will personally drive to that team’s arena and burn the f’in place down.
