Agreed, time for change and a reorganization...I just wanted to point out that hating the guy who took the franchise to a another level was a bit surprising.
I'm not saying you...just some posts I've seen lately.

Not trying to argue but what increased level did Vanderbeek take the devils hockey team to?
I don't think they won a cup with him as owner?
I think they missed the playoffs 2 years he was owner?
I think they bounced out in round one with him as owner?
He gets credit for not letting the team leave NJ. I never thought the team was going to leave NJ, that was all posturing.
We did get the ROCK with him as owner but as much credit or more goes to the City of Newark.
When an arena needs both an NBA and NHL to be financially sound how did he let the Nets go to Brooklyn on his watch?
Just saying so it isn't hate just the reality that he was just OK.
He was a big and I assume still is a Devils fan.
He had money and saw a way to make more money but his world crumbled.
