Did you really bring up scott Stevens? The man who wouldn't even go on the market for his last two contracts...especially where he accepted well below market value for 4 yrs 16 million to stay in NJ...Stevens was not brought here voluntarily..but he absolutely has wanted to saty for the last 8 years...You are right that the Devils, because of their success, have become the whipping boys of the defensive system...but I guarantee that if the rags won the Cup playing the same system (which they do) they would not take the same abuse...
