Devils GM Shero on Bylsma, Brodeur: report

New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero addressed the possibility of hiring Dan Bylsma as coach and adding Martin Brodeur to the front office in a lengthy interview with Northjersey.com published Tuesday.

Shero was the general manager and Bylsma was the coach when the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 2009. They were fired by Pittsburgh after last season.

"I'm sure people will ask that based upon our working together in the past and having some success or winning the Cup together," Shero told writer Tom Gulitti. "That's nothing that I have any preconceived notion on at all. 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.

"I'm on the job for what? Two, three hours now. We'll have plenty of time for that and, hopefully, make the right decision."

Shero on Monday was named general manager, replacing Lou Lamoriello, who will remain as Devils president. Lamoriello ended the season as co-coach with Adam Oates and Scott Stevens.

Ray Shero was named the fourth general manager in the history of the New Jersey Devils on Monday.

Lou Lamoriello, who had served as Devils GM since April 1987, made the announcement. Lamoriello will remain New Jersey's president of hockey operations.

"I think we have to be realistic in life in different areas and be honest, and right now this is the perfect time and the perfect person with great experience [in Shero]," Lamoriello said on a conference call. "Ray has been in a couple of different organizations and had a year off, had a chance to step back and figure what went wrong and what went right and how things could be different."

Shero was GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2006-14. The Penguins went to the Stanley Cup Final in consecutive seasons in 2007-08 and 2008-09, winning the Stanley Cup in 2009.

Quote of the Day

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.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
