Will never stop cheering for the Devils but we are going to suck for awhile.
Best case senerio that I can see is squeaking into the last playoff seed and getting crushed in the first round.
A team cannot lose Parise , Kovalchuk, Clarkson ( approx 100 goals,in total) and replace them with Ryder and Clowe ( 50 goals at the very most)
Sure JJ loki and teddy could surprise , but in all honesty, can they pick up 50+ goals in slack.... Nope.
Numerous players are going to have to put up career best numbers and Schneider is going to have to have a Vezina calibre season for us to make the playoffs.
What hurts the most is losing two elite players for nothing in return.it set us years back.
What's even more depressing is that we have no offensive prospects besides Boucher , and traded a top 9 pick this year and no pick next year so...... No help in sight for forwards coming up within the system.
I just hope we don't panic and do something stupid like trade for someone like Heatley or Havlat or Gionta. We cannot afford to give any assets away right now.
Only hope is bandaid UFA's until we gather enough assets to be competitive again.
