PLAYERS TO WATCH
Goalie: Martin Brodeur
First in wins (48), third in GAA (2.18), third in save percentage (.922) and first in shutouts (12), it's hard to imagine Brodeur can approach those numbers again. The real issue isn't the numbers but what he has left in the tank come April.
Defenseman: Andy Greene
The rookie went from averaging 14:15 a night in the regular season to 17:03 in the playoffs, an indication of the strides taken by the 24-year-old native of Trenton, Mich. His puck-moving skills will help offset the loss of Rafalski to free agency.
Forward: Brian Gionta
The diminutive scoring machine played in 57 straight games to start the season, but later went down with a groin injury that hampered the rest of his season. He'll need to get back to full wattage if the Devils are to be playoff worthy.
MORE FROM BURNSIDE
There are two things about the Devils that remain constant, Lamoriello, and that what Lou says goes. Now comes along Sutter, a guy who's not used to marching to anyone's beat but his own. The smart thinking has Lamoriello backing off and letting Sutter run this ship the way he sees fit. If not, Sutter won't be in New Jersey long and Lamoriello will have created a coaching wasteland.
Where Penguins Will Finish
The Devils will finish third in the Atlantic Division and ninth in the Eastern Conference.

Martin Brodeur is a rock in goal. He'll take his "No Pucks Allowed" sign to the team's new building and set up shop as the best fantasy goaltender there is. Dainius Zubrus should do a good enough Scott Gomez impression to keep Patrik Elias and Brian Gionta more than relevant to fantasy, while Zach Parise's star will keep rising. Don't trust defenseman Paul Martin as your power-play quarterback -- Andy Greene and Karel Rachunek will hurt his value. -- Sean Allen
