The Devils System

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,
Martin Brodeur first noticed the composition of his New Jersey Devils when the idea came up for a pickup game in practice that would have pitted Canadians against Americans. There was a big problem, however. The all-world goaltender realized there were only a handful of Canadians on the Devils' 22-player roster. (Five, if you're scoring at home.) "We tried to make a game [in practice] Canada versus the United States and we didn't have enough Canadians to play," Brodeur said after his team's 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. "It's tough for us Canadians who pride ourselves at being the best in the sport. We have only [five] guys and that's it."
