The Devils are 18 months removed from a trip to the cup finals and look where they are. That means nothing. These are the laurels we are resting on? You remember the path they took to get there? The absolute hardest, frustrating path. 18 months removed - who cares. We're 20 years removed from winning a cup, why don't you bring that up as an argument because it's just as valid.
You can't rebuild with those players on the roster, you just can't. It's either you go all in or you don't go at all. The half-assed "retools" aren't working.
