10 Things Devils Fans Can Be Thankful For

Well Devils fans after some shaky times the past few months, we have a lot to be thankful for at this time of year:
1) The Devils are on a 5-game winning streak after the season seemed to be going in the shitter.
2) The Devils escaped with two points after blowing a 2-0 lead late to the Florida Panthers.
3) Rolston, Holik, Madden and Greene all should be returning to the line-up sometime in the near future.
4) Zach Parise is becoming one of the most dominant players in the game, the type of player we have not had since Elias in 2000-2001.
5) Gionta is on a five game goal scoring streak.
6) Elias-Zubrus-Gionta is turning out to be a dominant line.
7) The Devils penalty kill ha snot given up a power-play goal in three straight games.
8) The farm system is filled with soon to be NHL players in Hallischuk, Corrente, Eckford, Zharkov and Bergfors.
9) Ansi Salmela is an actual offensive defenseman who is becoming more and more comfortable at the point on the power-play.
10) The Devils are 13th in offense (2.90 GPG) compared to last season where the finished 27th (2.42 GPG).
