With the NHL trade deadline drawing closer, New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello has made it very clear that his team will be buyers at the deadline.

From NorthJersey.com:

As it stands right now, Lamoriello says, “It’s not even a question” that he views himself as a buyer looking to supplement a roster he still believes is good enough to qualify for the playoffs.

“If we can get better, that’s absolutely what we’ll do,” he said. “I’m really happy with this team. You’re not going to do anything for the sake of doing it, but this team has overcome a lot through a difficult period of time right now and we have some things going in our favor.

“We have a favorable schedule, we have a sort of healthy team and the new players who we brought in are really comfortable within the system. They’re comfortable in their own skin. They’re comfortable with the coaches.”

While Lamoriello stopped short of providing any names that the Devils could be targeting, the current players on his roster have to feel a little safer if they were hoping to remain in New Jersey for the remainder of the season.
