Stephan Richer deserves a look at LW. The man knew how to score goals. Prolly not as versatile as others, and tended to lose interest in games more than I liked, but he could score with the best of them.

A nod perhaps to Mogilny at RW. Of course he spent most of his career elsewhere.

I'm thinking he's bringing over a world class player from Europe! That guy wasn't even worth talking about.

I shed tears making this roster. Reminds of of the Glory Days.

Poni, Clarkson, Bernier, Carter, Gionta, Henrique, Josefson, Kovalchuk, Zajac, Zubrus, Greene, and Larsson can make this roster one day. Especially Henrique.
Of the 2 years you've watched hockey?

Burke should be #2 goalie - I could also give Terreri the nod.

Richer was mostly a RW...when Guerin emerged the Devils had too many RW's Maclean, Lemieux, McKay, Guerin and Richer slide over.

Richer, in his time in NJ at least, was a lot like Sykora currently. Towards the end of his career, a proven winner with a big shot, and quietly fading out of the game. The biggest difference being Richer's size and willingness to use it.

In fact, I think Richer's shot might be on the best Devil's shots ever - minus Kovalchuk. Dude could rip a 100MPH shot with a wood stick being lifted no higher than his hip. Not sure he belongs on this list, but he's definitely one of my favorite Devils.

Broten was a left wing.

The top Devils line in the 1988 playoff drive was
Broten at left wing Muller at center and Verbeek
at right wing. But in the playoffs the most productive
line that playoff season was...

Sundstrom Johnson Maclean

Broten - Muller - Verbeek were so much fun to watch. Still my favorite all time line.

Richer, and Mogilny are great, but they aren't really guys that will always be associated with the Devils. Richer I guess kind of is, and he played here for 5 years, and then that season he came over at the deadline in 02. Richer had success with Montreal. I'm kinda split on Richer. He had over a point per game in the 95 playoffs. He probably should have gotten the Conn Smythe. Less goals, but more points than Lemieux. Richer is definitely honorable mention though. I don't think he's as much of the Devils as John Maclean. Maclean was drafted here, and was part of all our early success. Mogilny's best moment here was winning his only Cup. I loved him when he was here with us though as well as before, and after he was with us.

Muller will probably be remembered as a Canadien. Broten as a North Star most definitely. Or the 1980 Olympic team for the USA. He won his only Cup with us though.

I agree with this. Mogilny will not be remembered for being a Devil. He will be remembered for being a Sabre and a Canuck but he himself will probably remember the Devils forever.

Richer can go either way but I think he gets remembered for being a Devil because of his statistics in both the regular season and the playoffs.

And it can't be any other way.
If you're going simply by what they did with NJ, you have to go with this.

It's crazy that Kirk Muller is the best center in the history of a franchise with such a winning tradition, but he really is. If we include their entire careers (not just what they did in NJ), Peter Stastny and Doug Gilmour would definitely be over him though.

To be honest, I don't think any of this is disputable. Just the way our history works out.
That center spot could be debatable, but otherwise, I agree.

No. If you think that you didn't see the 1995 playoffs. Claude had a performance for the ages in 1995.
And I think you are confusing the two Broten's. Neal, Aaron's brother was a mercenary in 1995. Aaron was a Colorado Rockies draft pick and played his first 10 seasons in the Colorado/New Jersey organizations.

If you're going by careers, Bernie Nichols was 1 of only a handful of players in NHL history to have scored 70 goals in a season.
