How scary are the Devils? They just demoted Scott Clemmenson and his 25-13-1 record. Instead, they'll go with some Martin Brodeur kid, who is 7 wins behind Patrick Roy on the all-time list. Hopefully, that will help shore up the Devils' woeful, 5th ranked goals allowed. Lucky us.

One bit of good news for the Tavar-Yes men and women out there; the Maple Leafs won last night, moving us into lottery land (only the bottom 5 teams have a shot at landing the #1 overall). He sure would look good in one of those ugly Avalanche uniprons, yes?

John-Michael Liles returns tonight, but that, of course, is probably not going to be enough to overcome the Devils. To cheer myself up, I've been looking over this and this. Hey, it's all I have.
