If there was one team in the NHL that should have been begging for the end of this dispute between the team owners and the players it was the New Jersey Devils. General Manager Lou Lamoriello and Coach Peter DeBoer have an aging roster and a season off was not going to be kind to a hockey team that had made the Stanley Cup as an underdog. New Jersey Devils tickets had to be available in 2013 for the Prudential Center to a place for joyous celebration.
Who are these aged players? Left wing Patrik Ellis, 36, and goalie Martin Brodeur, 40, are the corner stones of this roster. Elias is the second leading scorer on the team and is the main puck distributer. Brodeur is the man standing in front of the pipes, and future hall of fame inductee. The Devils do have left wing Ilya Kovalchuk returning as the leading scorer and entering his prime. New Jersey also has an emerging center Adam Henrique and defenseman Adam Larsson to provide new leadership, a.k.a. scoring.
Henrique is out with an injured thumb but is going to return during the regular season to improve upon his 51 points from the year before. Henrique was a finalist for the Caldor Memorial Trophy, the NHL’s Rookie of the Year trophy.
Larsson had a very good rookie season with some offensive potential. He could very well blossom with the addition of veteran Marek Zidlicky. Zidlicky had a rough season in Minnesota and arrives in New Jersey realizing he is 35 years old and he is not going to have many suitors willing to put up with a difficult defenseman. He also arrives as an offensive minded blueliner. Larsson is going to be on the power play, but Zidlicky is going to give a boost when it is 5-on-5.
New Jersey Devils hockey tickets are going to be available for an abbreviated regular season at Prudential Center, which is an advantage for a veteran roster. This may very well be the year the team returns to the Stanley Cup and it could also be the year the franchise wins it all for the fourth time in its history.
