Can the Devils Make Good on Their Promise This Time?

Can the Devils Make Good on Their Promise This Time?

Photo by Elsa/ As Devils hockey returns, it returns to a fanbase willing to believe things can be different. Can they prevent another letdown this time? It's no secret that the Devils have had a rough go of it over much of the past decade. What little success there has been has been isolated and any stretches of good hockey have only come in fits and starts. It's been a tough era to be a Devils fan and not only because of the constant lack of success. It's been perhaps even worse because many of the past nine seasons have had some hope for success, only for the team to...

These two will be teammates, at least for training camp. | Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via With training camp coming up, the New Jersey Devils have started to add players who will be on PTOs to fill out their preseason rosters.

Players who have been tenured on the NHL club for a while, as well as their shiny new free agent signings will make up the core for the coming season, but as we have discussed in prior...

Jack Hughes Did Some Tough Work

Jack Hughes Did Some Tough Work

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Hughes was a very good top six forward last year, but as more data is compiled and tabulated, it just showcases even more how much he helped the Devils when on the ice. Last season, his second in the NHL, Jack Hughes was a definitive positive on the ice for the New Jersey Devils. He proved himself to be a valuable teammate, and showed his worth as a former #1 overall selection. We know this from the goals he scored, the goals he assisted on, his ability to drive play, and the fact that he was making those around him better. However,...

Tyler Bozak is an Insurance Policy the Devils Should Consider

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via The Devils have more-or-less concluded their offseason business this summer by most accounts, but one more move that could help solidify the roster at forward would be bringing in veteran center Tyler Bozak. As the season draws near and players start to appear in New Jersey ahead of training camp, the off-season has just about reached its close. Just because the season is close doesn't mean the Devils can't still make improvements to their roster, though. Last week, I wrote about my concerns regarding the Devils' depth chart...
