“The role that they play and the style they play with what we have to do with our offense, I don’t think we could keep both at this point,” Lamoriello said. “It was a very very difficult situation to make the decision. In both best interests to give him an opportunity, we did not exercise our option.”

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

He had a great career here and a New Jersey Devils we will never forget. He did everything Lou and Devils asked of him and it is finally time to move on. I hope the best for Brylin whatever he may do next here. Maybe Russia or retirement but he has 3 SCC that he will always remember and us Devils fans to remember.

Bye-bye Brylin I wish you well. :)

I can see Lou making it up to Sarge by bringing him back here after his playing days are over.

Or a Devils' ambassador for future Russian signings. Give him credit-- he's about the best English speaking Russian I've ever heard.

I won't ever forget the night Sarge netted the 4th goal of game 4 in the SCF in '95. Love ya' Sarge, good luck with whatever happens, hopefully you'll retire and we can look foreward to hopefully putting your #18 up in the rafters

Agreed. Maybe one day we will. There will be others before Brylin though. :)

If Lou happens to snag Hossa will he get his #18? Tough call there.

Dowd should have played in that game.

And #18 is NOT going in the rafters.

I hate the thought of seeing Sarge in another uniform. I hope he signs in the Russian league, I could handle him playing at home to end his career way better than I could handle him playing in like Washington or Boston or something.

Ahhhhh Sarge, my boy.

The memories will live on forever and you were truly a legend in NJ.

When one discusses players who are and are not warriors on the ice, your name will always rank up there at the top with the greatest warriors of all time.

Thank you my friend and may God bless.

You were and still are.....INCREDIBLE.

In honor of one of the greatest dmen to ever play the game, I remain to this day and forever after a lifetime member of the Scott Stevens Fan Club:

"If you ever had to describe what a Devil player would be," said Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello, "the name would be Scott Stevens."

"He was just huge," Devils left wing Patrik Elias said of walking into training camp the first time in 1995. "I was afraid of him. You had a 170-pound guy coming here and he was 220, 225 with these paws like a bear. I was pretty intimidated the first few years. I'm happy he was on my side the whole time."
