DEVILS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kessel-to-Devils speculation debunked

Don't believe any rumors saying the Devils are interested in trading their first-round pick to Toronto for beleaguered forward Phil Kessel. Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello shut down those rumors when he told NJ Advance that he hasn't seen a trade proposal that would convince him to surrender the coveted draft pick.

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...

Travis Zajac reacts to a fan telling him he’s overpaid

Travis Zajac and the New Jersey Devils have had an awful year. The Devils have been out of the playoff picture for quite some time and are closing out the season with a whimper. Meanwhile, Zajac is going through arguably his worst season in the second year of his eight-year, $46 million contract. As you might imagine, a lot of Devils fans believe Zajac isn’t playing up to...

Devils Close Out 2015 Season With Chance To Play Spoiler Against Rangers

In David Clarkson’s much ballyhooed debut for the Columbus Blue Jackets, the team fell to the New Jersey Devils with the score of 2-0.

The New Jersey Devils are pretty far removed from a playoff spot and are stumbling along in the Metropolitan Division.

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.

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...
