Troubled Defense

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,
"It's a different era," said goalie Martin Brodeur. "Both Scotties were a big part of the success of the Devils. We'd all been here for 12 or 13 years and now there is a big change. It will be tough on the ice. Those were two guys who logged a lot of minutes and played really well for us." Head coach Larry Robinson feels the Devils will remain solid on defense with the addition of free-agent defensemen Dan McGillis and Vladimir Malakhov. "I think Malakhov can log some of the minutes Niedermayer put up," Robinson said. "Just look at the guy. He moves, passes the puck and shoots as well as anybody in the league. He just looks confident."
