Shero, who wouldn't say which players the team is targeting, noted that any moves that are made will not be with just next season in mind.
"If we go the route of a trade or a one-year contract, it will be to try and get value out of that player," Shero said. "We'll be looking for what makes sense for the short-term and moving forward, and try to combine both."
While Shero wouldn't reveal specific targets, he said the Devils would eventually bring in a third goalie, would look to get younger, and would try to bolster the team up front.
"Certainly up front we'll wait and see if there is something (available)," Shero said. "I'm not sure it's going to be on day one of not. If not, maybe it will be over the course of a week or two months. I also think it's important to take a look at some guys that are maybe Group 6 who can provide some competition."
