After this season with 20 goals, Shero Hall asked if he wanted to be traded. The following season Hall scored 39 goals and led the Devils into the playoffs. He won the Hart Trophy as the most valuable player in the league.

"I just think the season was a yo-yo," said seasoned defender Andy Greene, who is the captain of the Devils. "It was up and down. Good for a game or two, then bad. No real consistency, no real sustained momentum."
With an occupancy rate of around 90 percent, the Devils are at home in 27th place in the league, one place below the previous year's figure. Your next home game against the Chicago Blackhawks should attract a good crowd just because the Chicago fans will get involved.
