The devils are coming off of a harsh defeat in the playoffs at the hands of the Huricanes but they should put it behind them and look forward towards the 2009-2010 season. They have a lot of good pieces and I wouldn't be surprised if I saw them in the Stanley Cup finals next year.
Lets take a look at some of the important players
Martan Brodeur: He is one of the best goalies in the NHL, he currently holds the record for most wins by a goalie and he is coming close to the record for most shut outs. His season was stalled due to a leg injury injury. He only played 28 regular season games this year, but in those 28 games he won 19 and lost 9 he had 870 saves in those games regular season and 239 in the playoffs. He is without a doubt a core asset to the Devils and will help a great deal next season.
Patric Elias: He the left wing and the alternate captain for New Jersey. He currently holds the franchise record for the devils all time goals scored with295 goals. He scored 31 goals this season and made 47 assists.
Zach Parise: He plays left wing for New Jersey scoring 45 goals and passing for 49 assists in the regular season. It is only his third season in the NHL and he is already really good, it will be interesting to see how good he can get.
Jamie LangenBrunner: He plays at right wing and is the captain of the Devils. He scored 29 goals and had 40 assists in the regular season, his sixth year on this NJ squad. He will be a major asset to the devils next season.
Brian Gionta: He also plays at right wing, and he scored 25 goals and has 40 assists in the regular season his sixth in the NHL.
