Scoring with Hart - 2017-18 Taylor Hall Point Review Part 3: December

Scoring with Hart - 2017-18 Taylor Hall Point Review Part 3: December

Taylor Hall had one of the best seasons ever by a New Jersey Devils forward. In order to show off how great he was in 2017-18, every one of his points earned with the Devils will be reviewed. In the third of this weekly series, all 10 of his points in December are examined. December 2017 was a low point for Taylor Hall’s torrid 2017-18 season. This was the month where Hall produced the fewest amount of points of any month with the 2017-18 team, including playoffs. Further, we now know he suffered torn ligaments in his left hand. The team’s official website stated it happened in late...

Joel Farabee: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Joel Farabee: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

So as it turns out this year, it seems to me that more hockey blogs are partaking in the time-honored ILWT/AATJ tradition of generating draft profiles before the annual NHL entry draft. This is a great thing! The more prospects that are delved into, the more we can learn about potential new Devils moving forward. The reason I bring that up today, however, is that there are already a decent amount of profiles out there for Joel Farabee, left winger from Cicero, New York, just north of Syracuse. There is an obvious reason for this, however. The kid can flat out play. Ascending the ranks...

Ryan McLeod: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Ryan McLeod: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Ryan McLeod is a solid forward prospect with speed, size, and playmaking ability, but some question marks on his ceiling as well. He also happens to have a brother, Michael, who was selected 12th overall by the Devils two years ago. Should the Devils be looking at McLeod the Younger at 17th overall? Today, we look at Ryan McLeod here at AAtJ. This is a name that shouldn’t be too hard to recognize for Devils fans, as the team selected his older brother Michael in the first round two years ago. Would the Devils go back to the family well and take another McLeod in 2018? Should they? And...

Vitali Kravtsov: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile; Already Built to Contribute

Vitali Kravtsov: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile; Already Built to Contribute

Vitali Kravtsov has slowly been improving his draft stock while playing in the KHL this season as a 17/18 year old. Today we look at how this big-bodied Russian-born player could be one of the more NHL-ready picks of the first round. The 2017-18 season was a major step in the right direction for the New Jersey Devils, with the team playing past the conclusion of the regular season for the first time since 2012. While making the playoffs was nice, the team still needs some more pieces to be true contenders both now and in the future. With the 17th overall pick in what is being touted as a...

First Impressions: Blake Speers Early Development Slowed By New Jersey

First Impressions: Blake Speers Early Development Slowed By New Jersey

As a rookie, Speers had a productive background in the OHL, but as an everyday player in the NHL at this point? Not until he is a top 6 forward first in the AHL courtesy of the Devils Rookie forward Blake Speers sputtered and stalled without enough urgency on the ice and combined with the lack of early playing time, the speedy forward experienced a bumpy ride in his first pro season for the Binghamton Devils. In 62 games, Speers registered 12 goals, 7 assists for Binghamton which is really nothing to sneeze about coming from a former 3rd round pick in 2015 after he signed a three-year,...

Nico Hischier Had a Poor Defensive Season

Nico Hischier Had a Poor Defensive Season

Nico had an excellent overall rookie season and is one of the most exciting young players in the league. But he was BAD in basically every defensive metric. In February, I wrote a piece about how underrated Nico Hischier’s season had been up until that point. Taylor Hall’s Hart-candidate season and multiple point streaks distracted Devils fans, and incredible rookie campaigns from Matt Barzal’s and others distracted the rest of the NHL from Nico’s excellent season. There is nothing in that article that I don’t stand by. Nor anything in John’s piece roughly a month later taking...

Serron Noel: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile; A Powerful Winger With Skill and Potential

Serron Noel: 2018 NHL Draft Prospect Profile; A Powerful Winger With Skill and Potential

Despite drafting in the middle of the 1st round, the Devils could still potentially make a splash. Could Serron Noel make sense as a goal scoring, large bodied right wing? We start our coverage of the 2018 NHL Draft today with a prospect profile on Serron Noel. An intriguing forward with size and skill, Noel is projected anywhere from the mid to late 1st round on most draft boards. His goal scoring ability and defensive game are attractive aspects of his game and could make him an option for the Devils at 17th overall. Let’s get to know this prospect a bit more and see what he has to...

Miles of Improvement for Devils’ Wood

Late last week, I took a look at Nico Hischier’s rookie season and the impact he had on the New Jersey Devils. It’s probably safe to assume that they wouldn’t have made the playoffs without him. Today, I’ll be reviewing Miles Wood’s season. He may not have had the same influence as Hischier, but his […] The post Miles of Improvement for Devils’ Wood appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

A Close Look at Four UFA Scoring Wingers for the New Jersey Devils this Summer

A Close Look at Four UFA Scoring Wingers for the New Jersey Devils this Summer

The New Jersey Devils offense was largely carried by Taylor Hall and his line. To get to the next level, they could add another scoring winger to bolster the offense. This post takes a close look at four impending UFA wingers and whether the Devils should go after them this summer: James Neal, Rick Nash, Evander Kane, and James van Riemsdyk. As we know from this past season and from the playoffs, the New Jersey Devils need help with scoring. After Taylor Hall’s line, there are some good players but not a lot of consistent scorers. The Devils’ had all of three 20+ goal scorers last...

Scoring with Hart - 2017-18 Taylor Hall Point Review Part 2: November

Taylor Hall had one of the best seasons ever by a New Jersey Devils forward. In order to show off how great he was in 2017-18, every one of his points earned with the Devils will be reviewed. In the second of this weekly series, all 13 of his points in November are covered. Last week, I began a point-by-point review of every one of Taylor Hall’s points with the New Jersey Devils in 2017-18. In October, Hall got off to a surprisingly slow start with goal scoring. At least, surprisingly slow for someone who finished the regular season with 39 goals.. He had three goals and two came in...

What About RFA Stefan Noesen?

What About RFA Stefan Noesen?

A couple of weeks back, I wrote an article about what the New Jersey Devils should potentially do about bringing back pending RFA Blake Coleman. As a 26 year-old, he will be UFA eligible after next season when he is 27, so the debate is there about how long to make his deal, and what that should be worth. He has had only one full season under his belt despite his age, and he only netted 25 points as someone who really was suited for a checking line and to log heavy minutes playing in the defensive end. However, in this role he was quite valuable, and is the team’s best forward on the...

Are There Any Internal Solutions for New Jersey’s Defense?

Are There Any Internal Solutions for New Jersey’s Defense?

Looking inward at the Devils organization, there might be some ways for the team to improve in 2018-19, but those avenues are limited. It’s no secret that the New Jersey Devils are in need of some help on defense if they are hoping to take the next step. Yesterday, Gerard proposed the big splashy trade in the form of acquiring Erik Karlsson or Drew Doughty. Obviously, acquiring a player of that caliber would immediately reshape the defense, although certainly at the expense of some major assets for New Jersey. Trades like that are rare, though, so even if that were something Ray Shero...
