With Christmas approaching, those around the Devils have been getting into the holiday spirit. One of All About the Jersey's totally-existent-and-definitely-not-fake insider sources was able to infiltrate the Devils' offices and snag a copy of the team's holiday wish list. Most of the roster and even Ray Shero and John Hynes have their requests in what appears to be a joint letter to Santa. Here's a look:

Dear Santa,

Here is what we want this year:

Penguins put entire roster on waivers

--------------------------------

Thanks, big man. You're the best.

Love,

The Devils

Fascinating stuff, although, quite frankly, some of them may be stretching the limits of Santa's abilities here. To the rest of you, here's hoping everyone gets all the things they wish for this holiday season! Merry Christmas!
