I think we will be fine but Zach has been money in the shootout pretty much since his second season.
Until most of last year anyway when he couldn't score a shootout goal after missing that penalty shot at the end of the Montreal game in November.
I can't worry about how the Devils are going to look right now. At this point it's just important for the NHL to not blow up, and then we can worry about whether the Devils will. As long as Lou and PDB are around I have faith they won't, although they may well miss the playoffs this year - depending on how quick Marty and Moose can rebound from not playing at all for several months, and just how thin the forward corps really proves to be.
The team the Devils have now is not going to be the team they have in March if there is a season anyway. We saw that last year when the team looked terrible early in the season but gradually shuffled and added some pieces, and improved.
