Devils Should Target Donskoi & Pirri in Free Agency

Scoring depth was a big problem for the New Jersey Devils last season. Although injuries to key players didn’t help, they spent almost half a season rolling out replacement-level players in their bottom six. That can’t happen next season if they want to make the playoffs, so improving their depth is a must. It’s a […] The post Devils Should Target Donskoi & Pirri in Free Agency appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

UFA Spotlight: Should the New Jersey Devils Go For Mats Zuccarello?

UFA Spotlight: Should the New Jersey Devils Go For Mats Zuccarello?

With the New Jersey Devils looking to lock up more talent to improve the team, today we take a look at one UFA who could bring value in Mats Zuccarello. Yesterday saw CJ spotlighting an unrestricted free agent defender, taking an in-depth dive looking at Jake Gardiner. Today, I’m going to do a bit of the same, just for a forward, and for someone who didn’t even make the cut when we compiled our original list. Today, I take a look at Mats Zuccarello, who most recently played for the Dallas Stars after they acquired him at the trade deadline. Mats Zuccarello is slightly undersized...

5 Defensemen the Devils Should Target via Trade

The New Jersey Devils need to improve in a number of areas this winter, including on defense. Specifically, they need a top-pairing defenseman, and preferably a number one who can anchor their blue line. Mid-tier unrestricted free agents like Jake Gardiner and Anton Stralman can be helpful, but they aren’t exactly top-pair material. Tyler Myers […] The post 5 Defensemen the Devils Should Target via Trade appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

UFA Spotlight: Should the Devils Go For Jake Gardiner?

The Devils are in need of a top flight defender. With Karlsson likely to command ungodly amounts of cash. Gardiner is the runner-up defender of the free agent class so we profile him here. Last week, I looked at the top 5 reach, target, and safety UFA pickups as sorted by GAR, and then Gerard chose one from each tier to focus on. Today I’ll select a defender that we did not spotlight - Jake Gardiner. Before I get into some of the specifics, I’d like to preface who Jake Gardiner is. Gardiner is a 6’2’’, 200-lb lefty defender for the Maple Leafs who was chosen 17th overall and has...

Henrik Rybinski: 2019 NHL Draft Prospect Profile; An Under the Radar Forward

Forward Henrik Rybinski asked for a trade from Medicine Hat because he wanted more ice time. After being dealt to Seattle, his production blossomed. Is it enough to see him get his name called in Vancouver in June? Learn a little more about him in this prospect profile. What can make a draft class really successful is finding talented players late in the draft. While it is certainly not common, unearthing a Jesper Bratt or a Brett Seney or even a Patrick Davies in the fifth round or later is never a bad thing. It is not all luck. It requires plenty of work from the scouting department,...

Mikko Kokkonen: 2019 NHL Draft Prospect Profile || A steady defender who produced big in Liiga

Mikko Kokkonen is a defenseman who put up gaudy numbers for an 18-year-old defenseman in Liiga but doesn’t necessarily wow scouts with his skating. Is he right for the Devils in the second round? Who is Mikko Kokkonen? Mikko Kokkonen is a Finnish defenseman prospect out of the Finnish Liiga, where he played a full season for Jukurit in Finland’s highest league. Given his age as an 18-year old, just playing the season in Liiga would be impressive for Kokkonen, but he not only played, he was a significant contributor for Jukurit. Listed at 5’-11” and 198 points, Kokkonen is by no...
