Lineups With Style— Analyzing the Devils Current Roster by Playing Style

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Using a model that turns playing stats into playing styles, we’ll look at which Devils skaters excel in what areas, who should be paired with who, and how their lines might look this coming season. Jack Hughes P.K. Subban Wayne Simmonds Jesper Boqvist Taylor Hall (remember him?) The 2019-2020 Devils lineup will consist of quite a few new faces from last season, even if GM Ray Shero is done making moves this off-season. Rumor has it he’s still ‘in the hunt’ for some more talent, but he’s had a pretty successful off-season so far and...

Pavel Zacha & the Devils Forwards Were Amazing on the Penalty Kill in 2018-19

Pavel Zacha & the Devils Forwards Were Amazing on the Penalty Kill in 2018-19

Pavel Zacha was elite at something last season. Yes, really. | Photo by Paul Bereswill/ Despite how bad 2018-19 went for the New Jersey Devils, the team’s penalty kill was great. A big reason why was because their main forwards were so great in shorthanded situations - especially Pavel Zacha. Read on to learn how well the Devils forwards did in shorthanded situations. Not much went well for the New Jersey Devils last season. They finished 29th out of 31 teams. However, one thing about their performances was far from the bottom of the league: the penalty kill.

What it May Take for a New Jersey Devil to Score 50 Goals or 100 Points in a Season

Pictured: Your best hope at a Devil scoring 100 points - for now. | Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The New Jersey Devils have never had a player score 50 goals or put up 100 points in a season.

Home vs Road Splits; Home Ice Advantage?

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Every hockey team likes to think they have home ice advantage that is meaningful. Did the Devils play much better at home last season than on the road? Let’s take a quick look. Last week, I wrote up a post about how the New Jersey Devils performed against other teams within the Metropolitan, highlighting that the division is certainly a tight one, and each of those games next season will be quite significant to a team that needs to improve drastically over last season if it hopes to push for a playoff position.

After the Collapse of the 2010s, the Devils Will Hope to Emerge from a Dark Decade this Season

After the Collapse of the 2010s, the Devils Will Hope to Emerge from a Dark Decade this Season

Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via The Devils are exiting a decade that went very poorly for the team and saw the entire structure of the franchise crumble. With the calendar about to turn on the 2010s, the Devils might be positioned for a 2020s that will be significantly kinder to them and their fans. Fingers crossed. The Devils are not one of the NHL’s oldest franchises, but they have been around for quite a while and are one of the most successful franchises over the 37 years (36 seasons) since the team arrived in the Meadowlands in 1982. The team’s history in New Jersey now spans...
