Another Stanley Cup for the New Jersey Devils means another summer of juggling their roster. As much as Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello loves the group of players that won New Jersey's third Cup in nine years, he can't avoid tinkering necessitated by NHL economics and aging players. "We have to enjoy the moment and then re-evaluate the team," Lamoriello told the Newark Star-Ledger. "You have to do that no matter what kind of year you have and you can't let sentiment get in the way. I'm not going to say anything about whether certain players will be back until after the draft."
