Deveaux had 20 goals and 40 points in Hartford this year in 59 games
23 goals the year before in the AHL.
I am not sure how that translates (maybe not at all), but I don't think it would be unfair to say Deveaux has better hands than Scott and maybe even Rupp.

I think they desperately need fresh legs. I have no idea if Torts trusts Deveaux, but I would not be against seeing him in the lineup if Dubi isn't ready yet.
