Their injuries have been pretty brutal.
Their defense is better than ours? That's laughable.
Funny what a coach can actually accomplish when he coaches.
Devils best players have been their best players. Look at what Kovalchuck has done lately, Rolston, Elias, etc. Their forward group is better than the Rangers, that's fact.
Not only that but the system that is used by the Devils is a chance reducing system that stifles offense, they rely on the big play (top end talent) to win them games. When you limit your opponents to a GPG of well under 2 and get timely scoring from your best players -- you'll win games.
Tortorellas system is not that far different in all honesty, but our best players have simply not been our best players consistently. Where is Gaborik? Where is Dubinsky, 3 goals in 24 games? It's really that simple.
