If you’re a Devils fans, I guarantee you’ve heard one phrase often during the last offseason: “Taylor Hall and Nico Hischier need to be paid.” This statement was used by many to rationalize general manager Ray Shero’s decision of not spending significant cash over the offseason. Many may agree with this rationale and many may

Author’s Twitter Last night, the New Jersey Devils defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-2 at the Prudential Center, effectively halting their three-game losing streak.

Devils fans on social media have been justifiable frustrated and angry with the team’s performance, deservedly so, and have been pointing the finger of blame at scapegoats ranging from Coach John Hynes, to the defense, to the netminders, to the offense.

Follow me on Twitter When looking at prospects from across the Atlantic, there are many factors one must consider. The European rink size is one variable that is brought up as a concern about European skaters. NHL scouts sometimes wonder how players will translate to North America, where they will have less room to maneuver
As we approach August, the New Jersey Devils’ defensive core looks eerily similar to how it did when last season ended. Their blue line corps that struggled mightily for lengthy stretches last year has only seen a subtraction of John Moore and addition of 30-year old defender in Eric Gryba.
