"It doesn't take a rocket scientist," Devils winger Patrik Elias told NJ.com. "We're not scoring enough goals. We're getting chances, but not scoring enough goals. It's from head to toe. It's not like we have one guy that's scoring 30 or 40 goals right now. It's the whole team and it's unfortunate. Yeah, you can always add some threats for scoring."
Lamoriello wouldn't confirm whether or not he was actively looking for a scorer, as he does not comment on trade speculation, but the Devils have engaged in trade discussions with other teams.
The Devils have reportedly shown interest in New York Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek, Buffalo Sabres left wing Matt Moulson, Calgary Flames sniper Mike Cammalleri, and Columbus Blue Jackets winger Marian Gaborik.
"Well, you always want to score," Lamoriello told NJ.com. "There's no question. Right now we just have to just take a step back and go from there."
The Devils are expected to continue trade discussions throughout the Olympic break, but the team isn't interested in giving away its top young prospects for a short-term fix.
Meanwhile, according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Brodeur met with Lamoriello on Thursday to discuss his future with the club.
It's believed the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks have expressed an interest in Brodeur.
Brodeur, 41, owns a no-trade clause and will have a say as to where he ends up, if moved.
Lamoriello said recently that he does not want to trade Brodeur, but if the netminder insists, he will try to accommodate.
According to Lavoie, if Brodeur is traded, he will want to go to a Stanley Cup contender, which could put the Blackhawks in a prime position to acquire him by the March 5 trade deadline.
