It would have been different if he said, "Minnesota is probably going to offer him enough money that he could purchase the team." He stated pretty bluntly that the Wild told him directly what kind of offer they're giving him and that nobody will out-bid them. That's completely different from "stating your opinion' and I agree, Devils fans/organization has a legitimate reason to be annoyed about that and claim possible tampering.
Knowing there's another team that you probably like that really wants to sign you to a contract is one thing. Hearing on the news that the Wild directly stated they will not be outbid is another. It's probably tough to not question, "I wonder what that offer actually is..... maybe I should wait and see," and at that point, you're taking the right of exclusive negotiation away from NJD.
