Devils aren't about to panic
TheFourthPeriod.com

Even though the Devils haven't won a game in their first six contests for the first time in franchise history, GM Lou Lamoriello isn't itching to make changes.

The Devils are off to a 0-3-3 start to the 2013-14 campaign, and are looking for answers internally.

"Right now we have to be very careful. There is such a fine line. I believe in these players and I believe in this coaching staff," Lamoriello told Newark Star-Ledger beat reporter Rich Chere earlier today. "Right now we just have to concentrate a little more. Our best players have to be our best players at the right time."

Lamoriello believes his team has been in every one of the six games the Devils have played, but the opposition has found a way to get the advantage.

"Right now what we have to do is concentrate on the things that can be corrected and really build off the things that are going well," he said. "We cannot allow any distractions to get in the way. Everybody has a lot of different solutions. The coaching staff will come up with the right solution."

The Devils have been criticized for being too slow and too old up front, and while Lamoriello admits "we're certainly not an overly fast team," he feels they have the necessary tools to compete and win.

While the team's overall defense needs to improve, it doesn't appear as if any trades are on the horizon.

Lamoriello is expected to let things play out, but if the team cannot find a way to collect wins in the near future, the Devils will undoubtedly start looking to make moves.
