new_jersey_devils_1993If you had Martin Brodeur between the pipes, that would be enough to win many games, if not a couple of rounds in the playoffs.

It’s hard to write him off, but the tables might be turning in New Jersey and it doesn’t appear management is heading in the right direction with personnel moves.

The stingy defense stigma doesn’t hold as much water nowadays with the Devils, and while guys like Zach Parise and Patrick Elias can produce, who’s left?

It’s hard to say a major overhaul is needed when a team made the playoffs the previous season, but the notion is not far fetched.

    Who else? How about Jamie Langenbrunner, Travis Zajac and some young studs on D, with Paul Martin and Johnny Oduya? And the management in New Jersey is the best in hockey because there have been seasons in which we have had no business making the playoffs, but did anyway, which is why I have come to trust the front office there.

      There’s definitely something to be said for consistency, but in terms of building a contender, it appears the Devils are more on the outside looking in. But they are and always have been one of those scary teams to play against.
