Mike Cammalleri says Devils will be better than outsiders expect

Tuesday September 16th, 2014

New Jersey Devils left wing Mike Cammalleri told NJ.com he thinks the team will surprise people this season.

Last year, the Devils finished 35-29, with 88 points. They did not make the playoffs.

From NJ.com:

“I like our team. I’ve said that since deciding to sign here,” Cammalleri said Tuesday. “I think we have a good team. Even talking with the guys, and I’ve talked to a couple guys who are coming in on tryouts that I’ve known from other teams, everyone seems to think this team is going to be better than maybe the outsiders might expect. I think we’re going to be a real good team.”

Cammalleri signed a five-year, $25 million deal with the Devils in July.

Last season Cammalleri played in 63 games for the Calgary Flames and scored 26 goals. He scored eight game-winning goals, which ranked him seventh in the NHL.
