Tim Stutzle: 2020 NHL Draft Prospect Profile: Top Rated European Skater is a Fast, Versatile Talent

The current skater ranked first overall in the NHL’s European Skater Rankings is Germany’s Tim Stutzle. We take a look at why he would be a good choice for the New Jersey Devils today. The 2020 NHL Draft is set to a feature a number of talented young players to be infused into the league. While the New Jersey Devils currently sit sixth in terms of draft position (with some season hopefully to go), things can always change via the lottery.

This week, we took a look at the game that enabled the heroics of future rounds in 2012, as Adam Henrique ended the series against the Florida Panthers with a double overtime goal. This was a hard fought and highly contested series, contrary to what many expected going into it and the Devils had to scrape and claw to make it past the first round for the first time since 2007. This game featured a classic Marek...

Devils Need Subban to Bounce Back

The New Jersey Devils’ biggest acquisition last summer was snagging P.K. Subban, who they acquired for two draft picks, Jeremy Davies, and Steven Santini. The hope was Subban would help fix some of the team’s defensive woes. Unfortunately, that’s not how things played out in 2019-20.  His first campaign with the Devils was, without a doubt, […] The post Devils Need Subban to Bounce Back appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

The New Jersey Devils’ blue line needs some retooling this summer, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have pieces they can build around. One defenseman who should be part of the solution is Damon Severson. Like many of the team’s players, he got off to a slow start this season.

Drafting and the Importance of These Years

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ In today’s retrospective, I look at the 6 drafting seasons under Lou Lamoriello that brought the New Jersey Devils to their heights, and then the 6 drafting seasons under Lou that brought the team to its knees. I contrast these to make the point of how important these seasons are right now for the future of the organization. As a fan, it can be tough to sit through a rebuild. I think this is especially pertinent to us fans of the New Jersey Devils, as we essentially took making the playoffs for granted for a very long time. Now that they have been...
