The top 3 D-men on this team are UFAs Neidermeyer, Rafalski, and Stevens. The belief is that Scotty is heading to either Vancouver or possibly Philly or Toronto. Stevens you would think would likely want to retire a Devil, so that leaves Rafalski who will demand really good numbers as well. My bet is the Devils don't let him out of the Garden State, but you have to be certain other teams will go after him...Lou will have to keep him at a good price. NJ needs to keep Elias around for the new NHL. Madden is a great leader and truly entering his prime, so that will be fun to watch.
