The one difference...

is that the Devils retained a solid core - at forward and on defense - and added basically exactly what they needed - more scoring from the wing and someone to help out on the PP. Holik was an interesting signing, although he did pretty well last season and may be an asset, but I'm not 100% sure on him. It's easier for me to say the Devils got better for next season than for me to say the Rangers got better for next season. Beyond next season is tough to predict (for both teams). It's just so difficul to predict how major overhauls and changes in philosophy will pan-out, and that's the situation with the Rangers. It may be good for next season and great for beyond - but realistically, Sather rolled the dice and I think even he's crossing his fingers. Lou, for the time being, is sleeping pretty well having a good idea what he has (perhaps thinking in Holik he has the guy he had 7 years ago, which likely will not be the case, however).
