Team: definitely the 1995-96 team. Let's be honest, the 95 team won the Cup, and a couple good bounces, they beat the Rangers in 94 and then slaughter Vancouver. A near miss in 94, Cup in 95, then you miss the playoffs?
Player: Listen, Nieds leaving sucked but you could understand it and he did it the right way. The wound is still fresh but I find if hard to believe there could be a bigger disappointment than signing Kovy as the top free agent in a long time, actually getting penalized for it (although it was essentially erased), and having him "retire". It was a long deal he wouldn't have entirely lived up to, but on a team where guys struggle to score 20 goals a year, it's a blow.
Trade: there are not a lot of bad trades made by LL. I can't think of one that made me think NOOOOOOOO! A lot of LL haters out there, but the guy is a hockey genius.
Coach/Exec: definitely Johnny Mac. Not sure he got an entirely fair chance, as his time was brief. But man was it bad!
Fashion: really? People have criticisms of a hockey team's fashion? I guess I'll say, no third jersey with an alternate logo (black primary color, no additional shoulder color, red and white stripes on sleeves/hem, skating Devil chest logo, and NJ logo shoulder patches? maybe a lace up collar?) This is not motivated by my need for "fashion", but my compulsion for buying hockey jerseys and my desire to find something new without wearing another team's jersey. I can only buy so many Devils jerseys.
