Regardless of the Standings, It May be a Quiet Trade Deadline for the Devils

Regardless of the Standings, It May be a Quiet Trade Deadline for the Devils

Photo by Mike Carlson/NHLI via The Devils—if they are active at all—will be sellers once again at this year’s trade deadline. The list of options is limited on this roster, though. What players could be on the move if Fitz goes that route? The trade deadline is still close to two months away in this jumbled NHL season, but even at that distance, the picture of who is likely to add and who will be moving players out is pretty clear already. This is especially true in the East, where only a near-miracle or major collapse will lead to a change of the teams occupying...

Devils Cannot Keep Lightning from Netfront Area in 3-2 Loss

Hm. | Photo by Mike Carlson/NHLI via Another one they could have won. First Period After Mikhail Sergachev took a high sticking penalty in the early stages of the period, the New Jersey Devils power play went to work. The first unit had their best performance of the season. Not allowing a clear off the draw, the Devils shook off the aggressive penalty kill of the Tampa Bay Lightning with their work on the boards and on-target passing. Damon Severson took the first attempt from up high, and the Devils were able to create chances for both Jesper Bratt and Jack Hughes....

Vasilevskiy! Vesey!

Why Have the New Jersey Devils Struggled with Basics for Years?

Why Have the New Jersey Devils Struggled with Basics for Years?

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports The New Jersey Devils have not been good for essentially the past decade now. Year after year, basic mistakes (along with some other factors) appear to be affecting progress. We take a look today at why that could be. So this might be more of an anecdotal piece rather than anything with tangible statistics to back it up, but I feel it is worth addressing nonetheless. Since the New Jersey Devils began to dip and decline after 2011-12, there was a noticeable uptick in some areas of the game that you don’t want to see said uptick in. ...

Which Devils Skaters Have Disappointed this Season?

Which Devils Skaters Have Disappointed this Season?

Photo by Rich Graessle/ We all know the goaltending has let the Devils down this year. Between injuries, poor performances, and poor coaching decisions, it’s been a disaster. But when things go this poorly it’s never the fault of just one or two players, or even an entire coaching staff. And while some players have taken big steps forward or at least met expectations, others have disappointed. Today we look at those skaters who have underwhelmed. Much of the heat this season from fans regarding the Devils play has, rightly, focused on the goaltending and coaching....

Devils End First Half of Another Nightmare Season with 5-1 Blowout Loss to the Stars

A night to forget for Akira Schmid | Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Mackenzie Blackwood? Akira Schmid? Jon Gillies? Another night, another game where the New Jersey Devils let the other team drop 5 on them regardless of who was in net. Tonight’s beneficiary? The Dallas Stars. The New Jersey Devils completed the first half of their season tonight, and if the second half of the season goes like much of how the first half has gone with poor goaltending and poor defense, it’ll be a rough watch the rest of the way. Yet again, the Devils gave up five goals to an...

Garden State of Hockey- Episode 124: Narrowing Down the Problem

Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via Was it maybe the injured goalies, I mean who is to say... The New Jersey Devils had another run of bad results and we’re at the point where wins and losses no longer matter over the production of individuals on this team that will be there for years to come. The early season special teams and goaltending woes have effectively ended any chance the Devils had at a playoff spot in an incredibly competitive conference so now our attention turns once again to the development of younger players on all levels of the system. Oh and one of those...
