A Very Early Look at the 2021 New Jersey Devils Pending Free Agents

“I wonder if I can ask for it in small bills? Or one of those bags with a $ on it?” | Photo by Elsa/ As the New Jersey Devils are close to the second half of their season and trade deadline is a little over two months away, this post takes an early look at the pending free agents on the team from Jesper Bratt to Brian Flynn. The New Jersey Devils would be a little bit past halfway point of their regular season under normal circumstances. However, 2022 is not filled with normal circumstances.
