UFA Preview: Johnny Gaudreau & Erik Gudbranson

Could Johnny Hockey become Johnny Jersey? Or Johnny Jersey Hockey? | Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Johnny Gaudreau is one of the best left wingers in the NHL. Erik Gudbranson is a big, tough defenseman who would bring a quality the Devils are lacking. Do either player make sense for the Devils to pursue in UFA? The long wait for the NHL business season is nearly over, as the Colorado Avalanche have won the Stanley Cup and we now sit 14 days away from the free agent market opening. After previously highlighting prominent UFAs from Florida, Carolina, New York, Toronto,...

Topias Leinonen: 2022 NHL Draft Prospect Profile: A Huge Goalie Who Covers the Net Well

Photo by RvS.Media/Basile Barbey/ This may be a weak goalie draft, but that should not stop Tom Fitzgerald from continuing to deepen the goalie prospect pool. With the absolute disaster that was the 2021-22 New Jersey Devils’ goaltending, one would imagine Tom Fitzgerald is inclined to pick more goaltenders during this Draft. Currently, the only prospects the Devils have the rights to - but have not signed yet - are Cole Brady and Jakub Malek. Brady has put up a decent save percentage for Arizona State against ridiculous shot numbers (he had a GAA of 3.89 in 2021-22),...
