Feel good quote, so take it for what it is:
“There were some things going on, but I really wanted to be with the Devils again,” he said. “I kind of feel like I belong here. They treat me right here and it’s my home, so I was really pushing towards being with the Devils.”

Sykora hated being sent out of town the first time around with the Devils and wound up on quite a few teams where he was generally unhappy. NJ is familiar with him and his good friend Elias is there.
I think he wants to make sure he winds up somewhere that he knows will be a welcoming environment if he's going to go through the toughness of an NHL season again.

He's never been a player to hold back on his feelings, for sure.
