Lou Lamoriello has had a habit of finding players that other teams have given up on and getting them to produce for the New Jersey Devils. The Devils president and general manger netted productive seasons from castoffs Ryan Carter and Steve Bernier in winning the Eastern Conference last season, and Lamoriello is hoping to do the same with Bobby Butler this season. Butler had the final year of his contract bought by the Ottawa Senators after a disappointing sophomore season. Lamoriello signed him to a two-way contract in August. The Senators had high expectations for the 25-year-old Marlborough, Mass., native after he scored 10 goals in 36 games as a rookie, but they soured on him and his one-way contract after he had just six tallies in 56 games last season.
