The Devils are 10th in Yahoo's (the worlds number one source for hockey information) Power Rankings...

:blahblah: Martin Brodeur is back, but look what he woke up to. His two top defensemen are gone, his top scoring threat is recovering for hepatitis A and his coach is fighting cancer. Oh, and the NHL passed rules to limit goalie puck handling one of his strengths. He can carry this team to but not through the playoffs. :blahblah:

What kinda crap is that? No offense I LOVED Scotty and Nieds, but honestly we'll do perfectly fine without them. Recovering from Hepatitis A won't take the entire season, and is everyone forgetting that Robinson won two cups with us and took us to the Finals as a head coach? Some people just dont need to be talking about hockey....

I think it's naive to assume we'll do 'just fine' without two of the best 100 defenders to ever play the game.

But Yahoo really has no credibility. I believe Detroit is ranked ahead of the Devils (a joke to begin with) with the statement that 'Jason Williams has to become a top-line threat this year." Jason Williams is only a top-line threat in the AHL - and it's obvious to anyone who does more than just look at stats.

Well I didnt mean we'll be just as good as we were with them, I meant we're not gonna drop from a playoff contender to the basement just because those two left....

In his defense, the writer did say we were going to make the playoffs.

After one game we have looked great, only 81 more to go!

Stevens has been gone for awhile and Niedermayer will be missed. It won't be a championship season IMO but it will still be good, we hope; Devils seem to pull it out of the bag last minute *most* of the time.

Now the loss of Brodeur in years to come....big transition.

Good win last night, but lets not lose sight of the fact that it was against a team with an atrocious defense.

"Look Hollom, its leadership they want. Strength. Now you find that within yourself and you will earn their respect. With that respect, true discipline goes by the board." -Captain Jack Aubrey

"Right, lads. Now I know there's not a faint heart among you. I know you're as anxious as I am to get into close action. But we must bring 'em right up beside us before we spring this trap. That will test our nerve. And discipline will count just as much as courage. The Acheron is a tough nut to crack. More then twice our guns. More then twice our numbers. And they will sell their lives dearly." -Capt. Jack Aubrey
