You can follow Todd on Twitter @ToddCordell! With training camp less than two weeks away, teams are finalizing their rosters and beginning to set their pre-camp depth charts. I was able to get a look at the Devils depth chart for their defence and goaltenders on top of being given information about jersey numbers for some new and current Devils. Here are some notes on that: - Perhaps t...

Five Questions For The New Jersey Devils

1. Thanks Ilya, now what? The Devils lost their superstar Ilya Kovulchuck to the KHL in Russia a couple months ago, and the perennial scorer has left the Devils with an enormous hole in the middle of their lineup.  The consistent 80-point performer passes the torch to new leading New Jersey scorer, Patrick Elias, who put up a mere 36 points in the lockout-shortened season.  Kovulchuck...

Carolina vs. The Metropolitan Division: New Jersey Devils

Most of the talk surrounding the New Jersey Devils has been negative. They lost their best player to "early NHL retirement," gave Ryane Clowe a contract that they'll probably regret in a couple years and traded away their top-ten pick for goaltender Cory Schneider. Factor that in with them having some pretty ugly results last season and you have the Devils getting mostly...

Todd Cordell: Will The New Jersey Devils Make The Playoffs?

You can follow Todd on Twitter @ToddCordell! It has been an abnormally busy summer for the New Jersey Devils. Between new ownership, Ilya Kovalchuk bolting to the KHL, the trade for Cory Schneider as well as the free agent signings of Michael Ryder, Jaromir Jagr and Ryane Clowe, among others, the Devils have been as busy as anyone this off-season. While I'd argue the...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils: Potential Camp Invites

You can follow Todd on Twitter @ToddCordell! Considering the New Jersey Devils have seven NHL defenseman signed, as well as a few good prospects expected to push for a roster spot, the likelihood of seeing a defenseman given a camp invite appears slim. With the Devils having a vacancy in their top-9 and some good players still available in free agency, we could very well see...

Throwback Team Thursday: 2001-2002 Detroit Red Wings

Hockey Town was at its finest in the 2001-2002 campaign, with lofty goals of a Stanley Cup Championship or bust. The Wings dominated with arguably the best roster in NHL history, which featured what will become at least ten Hall-of-Famers. Keep in mind that NHL teams are only allowed to have 23 players on the active roster, meaning on most nights nearly 50% of the team was literally...

Cory Schneider doesn’t mind early season trip back to Vancouver

What was the first thing Cory Schneider noticed about the Devils’ 2013-14 schedule when it was announced on July 19? “Probably the fact that we’re back in Vancouver pretty quickly” Schneider said today at the U.S. Olympic team’s orientation camp in Arlington Va. In fact the Devils’ visit to Vancouver – the city that was Schneider’s NHL home for the first five seasons...

For players like FuturePro Goaltending’s Jeff Lerg, the pro hockey journey is a winding road

I spoke with former Michigan State University goaltender Jeff Lerg during the Red Wings' summer development camp, but between the workload and the nutso summer, the story got away from me. This is quite belated, but especially given that the Red Wings just released their prospect tournament roster with no goalie under Jake Paterson's 6'1" on their roster, and given...
