In my opinion, it's the Devils, but I don't know what everyone else will say.
I think the average fan would get caught up in the names: Staal, Girardi, McDonagh, Del Zotto. They won't look at depth or the actual value of the players on the ice. Guys like Salvador, Volchenkov, Greene, and Fayne would be vastly underrated because they aren't sexy names and they fly under the radar. Devils fans know their true value, but fans around the league wouldn't be enamored because they aren't big names. I don't think people would take depth into account either. Tallinder/Larsson v. Stralman/Eminger would probably not even be considered.
