We made a run to the cup finals with a system that relied on intense and constant fore-checking, beating teams along the way that played versions of our trap and now we're back to being conservative.

I'm glad some things never change though. It's fun watching everyone predict the Devils finish in 9th place every single year.

I am worried about how the short season will affect us though. With 48 games, you're basically screwed if you get off a to a bad 10-15 game start. As crazy as it sounds, teams that start off 3-8 or around there are going to find it hard to make the playoffs. We shouldn't need much time to gel as a team thanks to last year's run but if the rust doesn't come off of some of our guys fast, we could be in trouble.
