For the New Jersey Devils to position themselves for another chance at Lord Stanley's Cup, they will need several players to step up their game. Zach Parise is off and running in Minnesota. Petr Sykora and Alexei Ponikarovski are two other top-nine forwards no longer with the team. Replacing the production of those three guys is the top priority for Pete DeBoer's club.
But there are other areas of concern as well, including a young defensman who must make strides and a certain Russian superstar who can improve his backchecking.
Got a bone to pick? Think I missed someone? Chime in.
