NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils won't look for a new president after Lou Lamoriello resigned from that position Thursday to become general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"We don't really feel the need for a president, and we are very excited about our dialogue with [general manager] Ray [Shero] and moving forward," co-owner Josh Harris said.

"When you're used to having absolute control of an organization. … Lou was obviously president and Ray was GM, and I think it was just a different situation for him," Harris said. "I think it's relatively easy to see why he might consider a great team like Toronto as an opportunity.

"Very recently, we found out that Lou as a personal matter, it wasn't working for him, and so this all came at us very quickly. The last 48 hours have been .. we've all had to do a lot of work getting ready for today."

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
