General Manager Lou Lamoriello, who has been vital to the Devils' success, has been with the Devils organization since 1987.

Over the Past 25 years, the New Jersey Devils have consistently been one of the top teams in the NHL.

They have made the playoffs 21 times over these 25 years, and have won three out of the five Stanley Cups that they have reached.

After losing Zach Parise in the offseason, hopes of making another Stanley Cup run is starting to fade for the Devils.
