Before any preparations for the entry draft and any tough roster decisions about free agents are made in the offseason by the New Jersey Devils, they first had to secure the services of the most important person in the franchise -- general manager Lou Lamoriello. The architect of New Jersey's three Stanley Cups and arguably the top GM in hockey told newspapers that he's staying put with the club he's been with for the past 16 seasons. Said to be on shaky ground in the YankeeNets organization because of clashes with executives in the parent organization, Lamoriello had been rumored to be considering a move to the Bruins.
