Another day of free agency has come and gone. The Devils looked to get some key FAs but ended up losing one instead.
Today, the Tampa Bay Lightning announced that they signed former Devils defenseman Matt Taormina to a one-year, two-way contract. The salary was not mentioned. Taormina had a great start to his career in New Jersey but unfortunately, he was injured after and for the most part, stayed that way. In the few times he did play post-injury, he was rusted. Still, I think he has potential and I wish him the best of luck in Hockey Bay USA.
The watch on Alex Semin continues. Sources say he has narrowed down his choices and the Devils are a strong contender in the Semin sweepstakes. Most likely, he will make his decision tomorrow and let’s hope he picks New Jersey! After all, we have Six Flags, great parks, 130 miles of beaches, great schools, great transportation, great malls – the list goes on! So pick NJ, Alex!
