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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
