Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
With the exception of maybe a couple other players, nobody has meant more to the Devils than Stevens. When Devils
fans think of a captain, they always refer back to him.

And why not? He was a huge leader by example out on the ice. He was one of the most punishing hitters ever to play
the game, never afraid to get into a fight, and even a valuable piece of any offensive puzzle. Many people forget that
about him because he's more well known for his defensive play and hard hits.

Oh, those hard hits. The stuff this legend is made of. A
t the time I originally wrote this page, I had been wanting to see
a movie made for YouTube called "Scott Stevens' Greatest Hits" and be a parody of the Dear Sister skit from
Saturday Night Live. You'd have all the huge and more notable ones on there.

... Especially the Eric Lindros one. (Although I did see such a video one time with the hit on Paul Kariya back in the
'03 finals.)

Of course, every captain that have come/will come after him since his retirement will always be compared to him. To
me, it isn't exactly a fair comparison, as everybody leads in their own way.

And also, how can you compare anybody to a Hall-of-Famer unless you're comparing another Hall-of-Famer?
