I grew up loving the game of hockey and eventually turned that love towards the NJ Devils. Since I'll never actually play for the Devils, I thought the next best thing would be to write about them, which is why I am here. Join me on the journey that I call "Running With The Devils"


Devils Week 1 Report Card

Each Friday afternoon I am going to put together a Devil's Report card for the week. I was going to do this once a month only but I thought doing it once a week would track the growth of players better than month to month. This week is kind of harsh but I don't think anyone of the Devils played all that well.





Danius Zubrus


2 Assists in 3 games. I do expect more from the big man especially being out there almost 17 mins a game
Zach Parise


 1 goal and an assist including a PP goal against TB. He also had a sick SO goal which of course doesn’t count
Rod Pelley


 Nothing yet, averages 7 minuts a game and has 4 shots
Brain Rolston


 He had that 1 goal in the blowout by Philly and has since looked a little lost.
Jamie Langenbrunner


 Like Rolston he had the one goal in the Philly game and nothing really since although he had the SO winner in TB.
Matt Halischuk


 2 games, 1 shot, nothing to show…I know, he's a rookie
Ilkka Pikkarainen


 2 games, no shots part of the horrific 4th line.
Nic Bergfors


 He has 1 assist but hasn't really impressed but did look a little better vs TB
Travis Zajac


 2 goals, 1 assist, only guy shooting regularly and save their asses against TB
Jay Pandolfo


 He tries, he really does and he had a heads up goal Thursday night
Rob Niedermayer


 Not a bad start, 1G and 1A and logs decent ice time
David Clarkson


 3A's and not many shots. I was hoping for more of him in front.
Andrew Peters


 This guy is awful in my opinion.
Patrick Elias    
Colin White


 D hasn't been wonderful
Andy Greene


 Got the assit on the Zajac last minute goal with a nice play to keep the puck alive
Paul Martin


One assist, the one constitant guy on D I think I can rely on
Bryce Salvador


 D hasn't been wonderful
Mike Mottau


 D hasn't been wonderful
Cory Murphy


 D hasn't been wonderful
Johnny Oduya


 D hasn't been wonderful
Mark Fraser


Marty Brodeur


 Awful game to start and slowly getting better as the games go along. 11 GA 3.63 average is kind of sucky.
Yann Danis    

Overall I'd give the team a D because I didn't feel much from them this week. They got blown out at home, lost to a rival and barely escaped from TB with 2 points when they almost had 0.
