Steven’s Jersey Goes To The Rafters

What do Slava Kozlov, Eric Lindros, and Paul Kariya have in common? from Sherry Ross of the NY Daily News,
Each of the trio was the target of jarring playoff hits by Stevens, producing the fear that made East Rutherford famous. "The opponent was always so petrified of him," said goaltender Martin Brodeur, who until this season had played his entire career with the captain, No.4, as a teammate. Name the Cup year, and you can identify the Stevens open-ice hit that defined it.
continued update 10:54am, from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,
"I still remember our first day in New Jersey," Stevens said. "Lou met us at the airport and he had two baby seats in the back of the car. That certainly says everything about Lou and what he has done for me and the New Jersey Devils. "It's definitely a family here, that's Lou's philosophy. That's why we stayed here and made our home here. There have been a lot of players here who moved on, you know, the grass is always greener, but the feedback later on is they did it right here. It's a team game here, not a bunch of individual players like in other places."
