Devils just got serious praise on NHL Live for being a very good, underestimated team.. Totally agree with them that it's pretty cool we didn't have to change our system even after Zach left
I gave it some thought today, and I know I might get crucified for saying it, but here goes.
Everyone was so eager to replace Zach this year through FA or trade, but really, at this point in the young season, we already have. His name is David Clarkson. Give this man some love everybody, he's leading us in goal scoring, and proved last post season he has the grit to score big, game winning goals. Look at his goals this year. All represent his style of play, but they've also been Parise-esque goals, getting in on net and jamming it home. As for Parise's attitude and hardwork, they were already in place due to great ownership and coaching.
We have a really good team, and it still isn't fully developed (I.e Henrique, Matteau situation, Larrson etc.) and we hardly sacrifice anything in net. A 1a, 1b situation. So in short, fvck Zach, we're the Devils..Arggggghh
