Devils looking at goaltending options
“It is something we’ve had discussions about. I know we’re aware of how well Wedgewood has played (in camp). He’s got some NHL games. The better he plays, the better days he has, that’s obviously what we’re looking for. I think he was here competing for an opportunity, and his compete has been great. His practices and games have been excellent.
“But we have had discussions on, ‘Is there a better solution? Is there a better guy?’ I think we do that with every position, regardless of somebody being out.”
No talks between Frederik Andersen and the Toronto Maple Leafs
“It’s my understanding that the two sides have not talked about his contract since July, so it’s been quite a while and crickets since then. But, I think both sides are comfortable with that.
Now, of note Freddy Andersen’s agent is Claude Lemieux and his track record normally is not to negotiate during the season for a client of his that’s a pending UFA. He think it’s a distraction. Does it mean he couldn’t make an exception if the Leafs come to the table mid-season with something that Freddy Andersen is really excited about? But for now, the idea is that both sides are comfortable that he starts the year and perhaps plays out his contract.”
Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic: A source said that July was the last time the Maple Leafs and Frederik Andersen talked about his contract situation, and both sides appear to be okay with that. They will let things play out and see what happens this season.
