NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils president of hockey operations Lou Lamoriello watched and listened as team co-owner Joshua Harris talked about the recent changes within the organization in a roundtable discussion with the media on Saturday at Prudential Center.
Lamoriello, who first approached Harris and co-owner David Blitzer about the possibility of hiring Ray Shero as general manager, is confident the pieces are in place to help the Devils move in the right direction. Shero was hired May 5 after a 28-year run by Lamoriello in the same role.
Lamoriello, 72, said there is a process that needs to happen to achieve the ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup.
"Look, everybody wants to win," Lamoriello said. "Everything is going to be done within the power and the knowledge to win, but the winning is the end result of everything else you do. You never put winning before doing the things necessary that give you the ability to win, and that's the focus we are taking right now.
"[Harris and Blitzer] have given us the resources and they are going to do everything they can to help this organization."
