It’s time for the New Jersey Devils to go all in on a rebuild

It’s not fair to say the New Jersey Devils are hopeless because no team is truly hopeless. Time corrects the path of all wayward franchises and pushes them back toward relevance. But it might be a while before the Devils are interesting or competitive or good.
