Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss: A word about the Devils' 08 season
A new season, and more firepower was brought in to give us more depth on the offensive side of the puck, and they look just like last year's team, with a "breakout" game against the Capitals, scoring 4 goals, one of which came in the shootout. Other than that, they've been scoring 1 or 2 goals per game, though in their defense, they have won most of those. Those wins won't continue though, because Marty's played every game, and will tire in April just like he has each of the last three seasons.
But at least the free agents will come in and make a difference once they learn to mesh with their teammates. Um, maybe, but that's going to take a while now, since our free agent class, Holik & Rolston, is out for a month, if not longer.
You're doin a heckuva job, Lamoriello...
