Fedorov looking to stick with Devils

From Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger:

Fedor Fedorov might not possess some of his older brother’s Hall of Fame-caliber skills, but he has Sergei’s unmistakable confidence.

The catch is, unlike most of the players involved, Fedorov, 27, is extremely confident he’ll earn a spot with the Devils in training camp.

“That’s the only reason I’m here,” Fedorov said Tuesday. “No other reason. There is no (other) point in me being here.”

Fedorov has confidence, arguably too much, but if he can exhibit determination and a willingness to compete that matches his skill level, he’ll be in good shape.
