Without question, the New Jersey Devils have vastly improved with training camp only a few weeks away. General Manager Ray Shero did a tremendous job in retooling the offense, giving the Devils their best look up front in years. The blue line remains a bit of a question mark, and we can take New Jersey’s

Earlier this week Jimmy Vesey’s latest shortlist was announced. The highly sought after Harvard grad narrowed his potential suitors down to the Blackhawks, Rangers, and the New Jersey Devils. For the first time in a couple years a high profile free agent has expressed interest in coming to Newark. Before looking into the factors that
Brandon Pirri Pirri remains one of the better free agents available. Anaheim chose not to qualify him, making him an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. He had 29 points (14 goals, 15 assists) in 61 games. He averaged 0.47 points a game, which would’ve put him close to 40 points in a full 82-game
The free agency frenzy is long gone, and most of the big names have been signed. The Devils addressed most of their needs via free agency and the trade market. However, there is still one glaring hole left on this team that Ray Shero will need to address before the season starts. The Devils traded
Author’s TWITTER While I wouldn’t start worrying, it’s worth acknowledging the lack of recent updates on the status of restricted free agent Reid Boucher.

This week the New Jersey Devil’s prospects descended upon the Barnabas Health Hockey House to take part in development camp. With 9 new players coming in from the 2016 draft class and a couple try out players there were plenty of new faces trying to prove their worth to the organization. The Devils are quickly
Author’s TWITTER Amidst the speculation on what general manager Ray Shero will do to improve the New Jersey Devils this offseason, two unanswered questions have remained in circulation: “Will the Devils bring Patrik Elias back?” and “Will Pavel Zacha be on next year’s roster?” Both players are in complete opposite states of their careers.
Author’s TWITTER Let me the first to acknowledge how I may seem hypocritical at first before divulging into this topic. If anyone read my earlier article from this week, I voiced a lot of concern on how the departures of Adam Larsson and David Schlemko set the team back on defense, where there already
Devils fans can breathe a sigh of relief. New Jersey avoided arbitration and locked down their leading scorer last year by signing Montvale, NJ native Kyle Palmieri to a 5-year $23.25M deal. We had speculated the potential raise he would get a couple of months back here and here. Turns out, we were pretty close.
