General manager Lou Lamoriello was served with legal papers Thursday evening from the law firm representing Devils center Mike Danton.

In the papers, served with the full knowledge of the NHL Players' Association and the NHL's legal counsel, Lamoriello was given three options: Trade Danton, release him, or place him with an American Hockey League team for two weeks so that another organization can evaluate the rookie forward without having to pay him.
