gtar question

Here is my question:
I am trying to backup an entire server using 
/usr/local/bin/gtar -covPzf /export/flrbackup/$HOST.tar.gz.$DATE /
--exclude=*flrbackup* --exclude=*proc*    --exclude=*/devices*
 however, I need to exclude the /devices directory.  I can not find a way to
match the '/' sign with wild cards or with a '/'.  How do I exclude the
/devices/ directory yet include other files whose names contain 'devices'
else where in my file systems?

Thank you,
