The New Jersey Devils have become a proud organization over the past two decades. With three Stanley Cup victories in less than 10 years, the Devils have become a prominent organization in the NHL and a force to be reckoned with each and every season.
It wasn't always like that for the Devils though.
The Devils officially moved to New Jersey from Colorado in 1982. They first made the playoffs in 1988 and made it to the Conference Finals. From there, they never looked back, missing the playoffs just three times over the next 23 seasons.
Every great organization has a long list of players that has helped it to develop winning ways and New Jersey is no different. In its short history, New Jersey has already retired three jerseys and will have a fourth on the way once Martin Brodeur finally hangs it up.
Here is a look at some of the greatest contributors to the success in New Jersey.
