Sorry, Devils fans. Hate to be the bearer of disappointing news if you’ve been waiting for general manager Tom Fitzgerald to make a big free-agent splash to speed up a franchise rebuild.

Not happening.

Not this year.

And maybe not next year.

Fitzgerald made that crystal clear in a Sunday morning Zoom call.

The Devils have a plan to go for it once young centers Nico Hischier and Jack Hughes reach their prime, but not before even though they still are under $18.35 million under next season’s $81.5 million salary cap following three significant weekend acquisitions – defenseman Ryan Murray (4.6M) and left wing Andreas Johnsson ($3.4M) via trades, and goalie Corey Crawford ($3.9M) in a free agent signing

Those additions strengthen the Devils’ depth chart a lot –Murray is a first or second-pair blueliner, Johnsson slots in as a second- or third-line winger and Crawford fits nicely as a No. 1A goalie – but there still is a big, big need for a 25-to-30 goal winger to play with Hughes or Hischier, who are gifted playmakers.

A lot of free agents have signed since the market opened last Friday at noon, but as of Sunday morning there still were five forwards who could be a top-line winger for the Devils, who have missed the playoffs two years in a row and seven of the last eight:

–Taylor Hall (16 goals in 65 games, age 28)

–Mike Hoffman (29 goals in 69 games, age 30)

–Tyler Toffoli (24 goals in 68 games, age 28)

–Evgenii Dadonov (25 goals in 60 games, age 31)

–Mikael Granlund (17 goals in 63 games, age 28)

–Anthony Duclair (23 goals in 66 games, age

Wait, what happened to Bryce Hall?

He is one of the most popular creators on TikTok. As a member of the TikTok collective, The Sway House, he has grown his social media following to 26 million across all platforms.

Hall has been known as a controversial TikToker for much of his career. He has gotten arrested. The Mayor of L.A. shut off his power because he hosted a party during quarantine. And he’s been involved in countless beefs with other creators.

So, where did this new Bryce Hall come from?

Hall said, “I never really showed anybody the business side of me. That’s originally why I started the podcast. Coming up from social media, and blowing up on TikTok, there was a business strategy behind that. But no one saw that. They just saw me as the problematic kid on the Internet who throws parties.”

His new podcast, Captial University, is an investing podcast that is co-hosted by Anthony Pompliano. Pompliano has built and sold numerous companies, ran Product & Growth teams at Facebook and Snapchat and has invested over $100 million in early stage technology companies.

Sara Hall kept picking off runners until the very end, chasing down Ruth Chepngetich in the final stretch of today’s race to finish second at the London Marathon in 2:22:01—a PR by 15 seconds. Brigid Kosgei won her second London in a row in 2:18:58.

Hall moved up steadily in the second half of the race. She went through halfway in 1:10:27 in ninth place. She moved into sixth place over the next 10 kilometers, then to fourth at 35K. At 40K, with only about a mile and a quarter to run, Hall was in third, 40 seconds behind Chepngetich. Hall, a former steeplechaser, kept pressing like she was in a track race, and sprinted past Chepngetich in the final 150 meters.

Hall, 37, is one of the country’s most prolific racers. Going into London, she told Runner’s World she had had a great buildup, and she was hoping for a PR and possibly a spot on the podium.

Due to the pandemic, however, she hadn’t had any tuneup races to test her fitness. Her only race was a five-person half marathon on a bike path near Eugene, Oregon, where she ran 1:08:18, a PR.

“Not having races along the way to rest for meant I just have been grinding away with only one rest week since early April, and I’ve never done that before,” she wrote in an email. “You don’t have the endorphins of buildup races to help you build momentum.

“It’s taken a lot of long-term vision, but where I’m at in my career right now, I’m highly motivated to keep mining out my potential, so that kept me going. I keep responding better to the work than I ever have,
