The New Jersey Devils are abysmal and there appears to be no end in sight to their slide. They have recycled Jacques Lemaire one more time, they have failed to find takers for Brian Rolston and Jamie Langenbrunner and the Ilya Kovalchuk experiement has been a disaster. Couple all of this with the likelyhood of them not being able to re-sign Zach Parise due to cap constraints and it all looks like a never endng cavalcade of problems.
The team has been faltering all season and even all world goaltender Martin Brodeur has been average. Its a sad state of affairs for one of the most decorated players in league history as well as a life long Devil. With this in mind, what i am about to suggest should not be taken lightly, nor taken as fact as i have no basis for this statement, just a theory of how to help with the turnaround of a once mighty franchise.
It’s time to trade Brodeur.
