The New Jersey Devils have named Ray Shero general manager, president Lou Lamoriello announced Monday afternoon during an impromptu conference call.

Shero for his Fire & Ice (http://fireandice.northjersey.com/fire-ice-1.174987/ray-shero-ready-to-get-to-work-as-devils-new-gm-this-isn-t-a-short-term-thing-extensive-q-a-1.1325551) blog Monday, asking the GM about the possibility of hiring Dan Bylsma to coach in New Jersey. The two men, of course, won a Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009 and worked together on Team USA. Both were fired by the Penguins after the end of last season.

"Dan and I worked well together, but it's one of those things that it's a little dangerous to have certain preconceived notions or ideas on people or players because you're going to be surprised both ways is what I've found," Shero said.

"I believe Dan is a really good coach. He'll be a head coach again in the National Hockey League, but I've got to do what's best for the Devils, and Dan's got to do what's best for him and if that leads us a certain way, so be it. But, as I speak to you now, there's certainly no preconceived notion on any persons or player or staff member."



Kunitz and Scuderi to the Devils!
