Martin Brodeur’s Jersey Retirement The Most Expensive Devils Game Of The Season

Missing the playoffs in four of the last five seasons, the New Jersey Devils try to get out of NHL purgatory and have a relevant season as the regular season recently kicked off. With new management and coaching, the Devils are looking to capture lightning in a bottle and advance the rebuilding curve. With sixth overall pick in the NHL Draft, Pavel Zacha, looking to make an impact...

Welcome John Hynes

The Devils finally have their new head coach and are any of us surprised that new GM Ray Shero went with a familiar face? There were a lot of rumors and a lot of speculation as to the man that Shero would bring in but John Hynes makes sense. So if you don’t follow the AHL, you might be asking yourself, who is this guy? Back in 2009, with the Pittsburgh Penguins struggling to make...

Thoughts on Lou Stepping Down

So where are you on the Lou Lamoriello change within the Devils organization? You can’t take away what Lou Lamoriello has meant to the New Jersey Devils during his career as the President/GM (he will remain as President) but you also can’t dismiss what the last three years have been. Since the trip to the finals in 2012, Lou has been playing catch-up and an organization that...

Would Devils Trade Away The 6th Overall Pick?

After a season of frustration and disappointment, it doesn’t take a degree from Harvard to figure out that the New Jersey Devils need to make changes this summer. The Devils missed the playoffs for the third straight season and did so by a whopping 20 points this year. The Albany Devils missed the Calder Cup Playoffs by only a couple of points but at the end of the day, they are...

Looking Back At A Disappointing 2014-15 Season

So as we sit here, waiting for the playoffs to start without the New Jersey Devils for the 3rd straight year, I thought now would be a great time to look back at the 2014-15 season. I’ll be honest, this was probably the most frustrating season I’ve watched in the history of being a Devils fan. If you’re a team that is going through a rebuild process, missing the playoffs for...

Devils Close Out 2015 Season With Chance To Play Spoiler Against Rangers

The New Jersey Devils have had a disappointing season to say the least. The team has already been removed from playoff contention. Goals were the issue for this New Jersey squad, as they ranked 28th in the NHL in overall goal scoring. They did not have a player who scored over 50 points this season and also did not have a player score more than 30 goals this season. The team still...

Disgruntled Patrik Elias

We don’t doubt that Patrik Elias will some day have his number in the rafters along side Stevens, Daneyko, Niedermayer and (someday soon) Brodeur. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make him the subject of our “Just Shut Up” award this week. “If they want to play me on the fourth line, I’m not willing to do that,” Elias told NJ Advance Media. “ Elias is finishing off...

Game 64: Devils Knock Off NHL’s Best 3-1

So let’s just get this part out of the way… Trade deadline day comes and goes and still on our roster are Martin Havlat and Michael Ryder. The first game the Devils play after the trade deadline expires, which happens to be the very next day, both Havlat and Ryder are healthy scratches. On top of that, the Devils decide that they will dress 7 defenseman and threw Peter Harrold...

Deadline Day Disappoints

I won’t lie. The 2015 trade deadline became a very big disappointment. I was certainly hoping to see a very active New Jersey Devils team, shedding contracts for draft picks that would span the next couple of years but instead, we saw the Devils only do 1 deal on deadline day. I didn’t want any players in return, I wanted picks and holes in the lineup where Lou was forced to...

Devils Trade Jagr to Florida

Devils sent 43 year old Jaromir Jagr to Florida in exchange for a 2nd round pick. Jagr has 11 goals and 18 assists in 57 games. Maybe last nights loss to Calgary proved to Lou that the playoffs aren’t happening but a 2nd round pick is a steal for NJ. Jagr was great last season but has shown every bit of his age this season. I did want to see him go back to Pitt though and finish...

Game #57 recap: Devils Need Shootout To Beat Lowly Sabres

I’m sorry but that was a painful game to watch last night. I’m not a delusional fan that thinks this Devils team is better than what they are but decisions made during the game last night is lone reason that the Devils needed OT and a shootout to beat the worst team in the league. The one positive if you can call it that is that this Devils team looked better than the Devils...

Game #57 Preview: Buffalo Visits New Jersey

Buffalo Sabres (16-37-3) @ New Jersey Devils (21-26-9) 7:30 PM – NBCSN Newark, New Jersey What can you say about this one? The Devils enter this game on a 4 game losing streak and while they played ok for a majority of their games in Chicago and Nashville, they finished both those games with poor 3rd period showings. The Sabres on the other hand appear to have gone all in for the...

Toronto Shouldn’t Be Only Team “Scorching The Earth”

The rebuilding needs to start now. While the Devils played better than I thought on their road trip to Chicago and Nashville, the result of 0 points was exactly what I thought they would get. It doesn’t matter how they’ve arrived to 4 straight losses, it just matters that they arrived there and that they are probably the worst Devils team we’ve seen in some time. I can’t...

What Should The Devils Do At This Point?

It’s no secret that the New Jersey Devils will probably not play a game beyond their 82 game regular season schedule even though they are still mathematically in the playoff picture. In fact, when it comes time to look back on the 2014-15 season, words like disastrous and terrible will probably be thrown around and rightfully so. It’s hard to look at the Devils from day one and...

Game #54 – Devils Lose To Edmonton….No Joke!!

The frustration with the Devils has returned. Actually, that might not be the most accurate statement because I am not sure the frustration ever left, it just became a little less. When your team can put together wins, which they were able to do against Florida, Ottawa and Toronto last week your complaints get a little quieter. When you start losing again, you get a little louder...

Struggling Devils look to rebound in February

The New Jersey Devils have been playing some of the worst hockey in recent memory over this season. On four different occasions, the Devils have lost at least four games in a row. Miraculously, the team isn’t in last place thanks in part to a slight surge since the firing of head coach Peter DeBoer and the non-traditional hiring of three head coaches. They now look at a relatively...

Devils Sign Gomez

But will it change anything? Yes, the Devils are in a slump and look to be a team without any type of confidence. When they get a lead, they look to be a team that plays knowing they can’t keep a lead. When they get behind, they play like a team that looks like they believe they won’t be able to come back. But is Gomez the answer?

Devils At The Quarter Mark

We’ve often been handed the excuse that it’s not about how you start but rather how you finish. After last year’s frustrating season that ended with the Devils being a few points out of a playoff spot, I think it’s safe to say that your start, middle and end are extremely important. At times, the 2014-15 Devils have looked good through their first 21 games of the season but...

Postgame: Devils Knock Off Flyers 6-4

The first thought that comes to mind after the Devils 6-4 victory over the Flyers is “roller coaster ride.” With the Devils leading 3-0 through 35 minutes of play, it looked as if a victory in Philadelphia wasn’t going to be tough to get but then the Flyers started coming. By the end of the 2nd, it was 3-3 and when the Devils regained the lead 4-3 in the 3rd, the Flyers came...
