One more thing: I don't think that many non Devils fans will ever percieve the team that way. They see a 'system' that allows a group of players to overachieve.
I see 12 forwards, ages 22 to 42, 6 defensemen, ages 21 to 40, and a 30 year old goalie playing their guts out, leaving it all on the ice, and giving 110% on every play and every shift. That's why I love defensive hockey, it brings the team together. Scoring is largely an individual accomplishment, usually there is a playmaker involved also, and a secondary assists is also handed out (deserved or not), but that's it. When Marty Brodeur gets a shutout, every player in the Devils locker room feels proud of his efforts.
