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.
Devils defense is vastly underrated, and it always has been. But yeah, the Devils depth is vastly better, and it's not like the Rangers top four is far superior to the Devils top four, not at all. I think the Devils depth makes up for not being as good as the Rangers top four.
