I'm glad Sheldon is doing all right in Jersey. Good thing he's staying in the East, so I can still root for him.

Very happy to see this deal. However a lot of Devil fans are hoping Brooky goes down to the AHL, and you know what I say: "F uck them, I want rough tough hockey again." Plus once the Devils get Jason Smith we will have a tough D again.
