What is that, a baseless projection over end of 2014 ? It sounds like someone making a wish more than anything else.

I remember when Patrick Roy was traded, Jocelyn Thibault wasn't able to take the pressure of replacing a huge hero. It's Jeff Hackett who was a veteran who was able to be the stop-gap between the hero and the up-and-coming goalie of the future (Theodore).

So the Devils should be looking to sign or acquire an experienced goalie before going for Campbell.
Agreed. Brodeur can't be replaced but the best option for the Devils would be the combination of an experienced goaltender and an NHL ready prospect.
