Last I checked, I'm a NJ fan who watched 90%+ of the games that Mogilny played with the team.

2000-01 in NJ was one of the few seasons in his career when he was healthy and motivated, and as great as it was, he still didn't finish top 10 in points for the season

And he was pretty clearly not elite in terms of defensive play; the only Devils I've seen take a regular shift on the team who were worse defensively were Ilya Kovalchuk and possibly Scott Gomez.
