It's a short season. You've probably heard that enough times to make your ears bleed, but you can't really get away from it. You'll hear a LOT this year, particularly from lazy broadcasters on national television (Just kidding, Pierre!). One of the things we? wondered about in our breakdown of this year's schedule was how the Devils will handle their goaltending split this season.

Tom Gulitti of The Record asked Pete DeBoer if he has an idea of how the split will go:

?I haven?t put a number on it. That?s just going to go by feel. Obviously, he likes to play game. I also think with the number of games we?re going to be playing in a short amount of time that we?re going to need both guys and that?s something that?s going to be a moving target as we go through the season.?

The Devils and Islanders finish up their home and home series this afternoon at the Prudential Center. The last two games the Devils have just been able to eek by the two bottom teams of the NHL. The Devils won yesterday's game 1-0 with Johan Hedberg constantly saving their skin. That can't happen today.

The defense needs to play better in front of Brodeur who is starting in place of Hedberg. The turnover by Adam Larsson in the 3rd period that led to the penalty shot is?inexcusable?and Larsson must bounce back from his poor play with a strong effort today. If the defense plays smart they should be able to stop the Islanders' offense.

Now for the record I would like to start off by saying that is NOT fact in any sort of way. This is a look at other teams that Parise would fit well with along with providing a valuable return for the Devils if they are to deal away Parise.

So far this season Parise has not been lighting the lamp as much as we all had hoped. He has just 6 goals and 5 assists in 19 games with a -5 rating while playing on the top line with Henrique and Kovalchuk. Despite the numbers he has been playing very well defensively which maybe just as important as scoring considering the Devils' defense.
