What can Devils fans expect from new GM Ray Shero?

Many in the hockey world marked May 4, 2015 as the end of an era. After 28 years as the New Jersey Devils’ general manager, Lou Lamoriello stepped down and was immediately replaced by former Pittsburgh Penguins’ GM Ray Shero. Thankfully, the franchise icon isn’t going anywhere, as he is staying on as the club’s president, […] The post What can Devils fans expect from new...

Thoughts on Lou Stepping Down

So where are you on the Lou Lamoriello change within the Devils organization? You can’t take away what Lou Lamoriello has meant to the New Jersey Devils during his career as the President/GM (he will remain as President) but you also can’t dismiss what the last three years have been. Since the trip to the finals in 2012, Lou has been playing catch-up and an organization that...

WATCH: Ilya Kovalchuk scores no-look goal

Here’s a reminder that Ilya Kovalchuk is still really, really good. Russia was competing against Belarus during the World Hockey Championships and Kovalchuk scored a pretty awesome goal without even looking at the net. Kovalchuk drifted in and completely sold the fact he was going to pass. One slick wrister later, Kovalchuk tallied a nifty goal and Russia cruised to a lopsided...

Timo Pielmeier Stellar for Germans, but Swiss Win 1-0

It may haven’t been a pretty one, but Switzerland’s solid tournament continues after a 1-0 victory over the Germans on Tuesday afternoon. When it comes to these two teams, the speed is definitely fast, but the scoring was fairly low. Switzerland and Germany combined for just 12 shots in the first period, with the Germans, trying to avoid relegation, taking eight of them. As a...

Unearned hype surrounds Ray Shero as new Devils GM

Lou Lamoriello’s move away from the position of New Jersey Devils General Manager was only a matter of time. We knew this was coming, we just didn’t know when. We finally got our answer. Presumably, the Devils and Lamoriello waited to make this move until a suitable replacement for Lamoriello was in place. While most of the hockey world is justifiably taking stock of Lamoriello’s...

End of an era for Lamoriello, Devils

Twenty-eight years. That's how long it's been since the Devils had a general manager other than Lou Lamoriello, who took over on April 30, 1987. But no longer, as Lamoriello announced Monday that he will concede the job to Ray Shero, who previously held the same position with the Penguins. Shero will be only the fourth GM in the history of the franchise. Before looking forward, though...

Kovalchuk Starts Off Strong Russian Period, Lead Slovenia 3-0

Just two days after taking down Norway 6-2 to start the tournament, the Russians began game two against Slovenia with a quick 3-0 lead after a period of play. The Russians were off to a slow start in comparison to their first game, scoring their first two goals today 36 seconds apart instead of 19 seconds apart like on Friday.

Who should the New Jersey Devils take with the sixth pick?

It shouldn’t come as a complete surprise that the New Jersey Devils should target a goal-scorer in the upcoming draft.

Would Devils Trade Away The 6th Overall Pick?

After a season of frustration and disappointment, it doesn’t take a degree from Harvard to figure out that the New Jersey Devils need to make changes this summer. The Devils missed the playoffs for the third straight season and did so by a whopping 20 points this year. The Albany Devils missed the Calder Cup Playoffs by only a couple of points but at the end of the day, they are...

Looking Back At A Disappointing 2014-15 Season

So as we sit here, waiting for the playoffs to start without the New Jersey Devils for the 3rd straight year, I thought now would be a great time to look back at the 2014-15 season. I’ll be honest, this was probably the most frustrating season I’ve watched in the history of being a Devils fan. If you’re a team that is going through a rebuild process, missing the playoffs for...

New Jersey Devils: Giving fans something to cheer about

Ever since coming back from the all star break the New Jersey Devils have sparked a bit of a surge. The Devils opened up a five game stretch with four wins and one overtime loss. The wins came thanks mostly to goaltender Cory Schneider who gave up a total of just four goals in those four wins. Schneider only gave up one goal in their only loss during that stretch in regulation, but...

The New Jersey Devils are currently sitting in 14th place (out of 16) in the Eastern Conference with 42 points.  There is still time for the Devils to make a playoff run with 35 games remaining on their schedule, but since just the top eight teams make it from each conference, it’s going to be a tough mountain for the inconsistent team to climb.  They gave a rare dominating performance...
