nhl.com did a 10 new years resolutions article and the Devils and DeBoer appeared at number 8:
"Jersey's new coach has gotten off to a pretty good start in his second NHL gig. The Devils, who until very recently were without top center Travis Zajac, have found a way to gain wins and points, staying among the playoff eight in the East.
Still, DeBoer has to do something to repair a leaky power-play unit that's allowed a League-high 11 shorthanded goals. On Monday, Hurricanes center Brandon Sutter was the latest penalty killer to take advantage of the Devils' sloppy power play.
How many is 11 SHG against? Well, it's more than twice as the total of any other team in the League. And the Bruins, Kings, Hawks, Avalanche, Coyotes, Predators and Jets have combined to allow fewer. DeBoer and his coaching staff must find a solution to this irritating problem."
Somebody's gotta be the hero... Why not me?
