Travis Zajac Struggles

The eight year term is now the maximum allowed under the new rules of the CBA.  In January, Travis Zajac was able to garnish such a contract of that length and with the cap hit size that goes along with an eight year contract you HAVE to assume a team knows what it is going […]

Devils Players – News & Notes – Tuesday October 9th

  Bryce Salvador – D - Devils Bryce Salvador wants to get the right deal in place rather than go for a quick solution in labor negotiations with the league. “The way I look at it is I’m focusing more on having the right deal, not so much on how many games we’ll be able to […]

Free Agent Frenzy: July 5th

Free Agent Frenzy: Independence Day Disaster

Well I hope everyone had a fun Fourth of July! In an overall sense, I did. But in the afternoon, I’m sure the hearts of every Devils fan got shattered. The decision that was made by our (former) captain today will forever rest in the hearts of NJ fans. In my opinion, the only way […]

Free Agent Frenzy: July 3rd

First of all, a Happy Fourth of July to everyone! Yesterday, the Devils and their fans were expecting a decision from Zach Parise.

Marty Brodeur – 20 Years Later!!

Chris Terreri and Craig Billington were hurt and the Devils had gone with Chad Erickson in net and Doug Dadswell as the backup in the prior game. […]

Devils in Desperate Need of a First Line Center

Yesterday, Travis Zajac underwent surgery to repair his left Achilles tendon which he tore working out off ice. Although the surgery was a success, Zajac will require three months to recover. For a team that was already lacking at center, that is not good news. In my opinion, the Devils already needed to acquire a first […]
