Devils Could Actually Be An Exciting Team

from Chris Stevenson at the Toronto Sun,

It remains to be seen who will depart from the Devils roster in order for the club to get under the salary cap and what they will get in return, but dumping salary to get under the cap is not going to yield a positive return for the Devils other than the needed cap space.

In the meantime, the Devils, who used to produce hockey as mind-numbing as the scenery along the southern stretches of the New Jersey Turnpike, actually have the potential to be somewhat, well, exciting. And not just while we wait for the other skate to drop.

The players liked what they saw from MacLean’s playbook on the first day of camp. The emphasis was on the defence getting the puck moved quickly to the forwards.

“Our game used to be too simple. We used to just jam it up the wall,” said Parise. “Now there’s more puck control and bringing it up with speed. We’re getting it with more speed and in better spots.”
