The 2nd post is correct for the most part. Speaking from experience, be it when I interned there, or with other pro sports teams. The large majority of positions do not have contact with the players. At the minimum, its in the "do not engage them" sense. If I was an intern there right now and I'm walking by one of the players, it would not be encouraged for me to go up to him and say "hey! whats up!" but if the player gives me a nod or just says hello (to be friendly, which some players will do, some won't I'm sure), I can respond and say hello. Its not like its a strict "DO NOT COMMUNICATE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!" type of order. But there are small staffs directly associated with the team/hockey Ops that handle that role of being the middle man between the team and the media, or any outside sources. There is probably one or two people that would serve as team administrators to handle that role. But not many. And definitely not an intern. Haven't come across a team that I've worked for that would put an intern in THAT capacity.

That would have been stupid, imo.

The guy is the center of attention as it is, no need to give him any extra pressude. All eggs in one basket, case Luongo etc.

This. Although from what we see from the outside Sal is the best choice IMO. Veteran guy who his teammates seem like they would do anything for.

I've been working with social media/marketing/PR... but I know people in HR, ticket sales, Amerihealth, the exec offices, etc.

I keep my sources private though. They keep giving me stuff so long as they know they aren't going to get caught up

I have interned with the Devils/Prudential Center, so I could comment on many things. But on-ice/hockey ops related stuff... yeah, none of us here really can. To put it simply, I have been inside literally just about every single room in that building. The only one I was never in, nor really ever permitted to go in to, was the Devils locker room (and any rooms branching off inside there). Been in any other locker room in the building on a regular basis as part of my job. But they are VERY closed off on those things except for the few that need to be in there.

Well, a fan stole a phone number list off a locker room wall during a tour way back when, and now the doors are kept very shut.

I've also dressed in a couple of those locker rooms,

But I'm glad to have correlating evidence. I'm incredibly happy to see Kovy in the A, not the C.

I interned there about 2 years ago now, so maybe that happened after? I was in building/event Ops, so I was literally all over the place. I spent more time in locker rooms, next to the ice/on the floor when the ice was covered up, and walking through the tunnels than in any of the offices oddly enough. While I never got dressed in any of those locker rooms, I've moved around furniture in them, so that's something, right?

Good, good.

Salvador is a fine choice for this transition period while our new 'core' of young players develop.

Kovy doesn't even talk to media 1/2 the time, there is no way he could wear the C.

No, the phone list was many years ago. It's why the Devils room is kept shut to virtually everyone now.

Ill say one thing though, for the anti-passion crowd, the Flyer did interestingly choose Giroux. Then again, there's a reason we are contenders most years and those guys are just pretenders

If we trade Janssen now, whoever we get might be ready for the captaincy three years from now.

My girlfriend is best friends with one of the Devils dancers, and they have a strict NO CONTACT policy. They can't say a word to them, and shouldnt even look at them.

I don't understand this pick why not Zajac or Kovalchuk who will be here a lot longer than 3 years

Dislike. I know we're a defense-oriented team, but there's little upside to this. All of our recent captains were identifiable Devils. He's turning 37. He's a journeyman. He's on Kovy's team. Kovy should wear the "C" or nobody at all. Zajac, even, would be better.

My only complaint is that Sal can't fight anymore.

Having a captain absolutely beat another guy's ass a couple times a season is a nice morale boost.

Salvador isn't exactly a journeyman. He's played on two teams in his career and he's been here for half a decade.
