This Could be Holtz’s Time To Shine

This Could be Holtz’s Time To Shine

Catalina Fragoso-USA TODAY Sports With the news out of camp that the line of Hughes-Palat-Holtz is getting a lot of time together, it tells us that the coaching staff really wants Holtz to be an NHLer this year. Throughout training camp so far, the coaching staff for the New Jersey Devils has made sure to keep the line of Jack Hughes - Ondrej Palat - Alexander Holtz together and has let them find a connection. And for the most part, they have looked good together, turning heads and gelling like they have been a line for a lot longer than a couple of weeks. For Hughes...

Rangers Score Twice in Third to Top Blackwood, Devils 2-1

Mackenzie Blackwood deserved a better fate in this one | Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Mackenzie Blackwood was brilliant for the New Jersey Devils. Unfortunately, his teammates let him down and the Rangers finally broke through in the third to hand the Devils their first preseason loss. First Period The New Jersey Devils got things started this evening with a faceoff loss to Filip Chytil and the New York Rangers. The Devils got a clear after Jimmy Vesey was bearing down on Simon Nemec. The #2 overall pick of the 2022 Draft punched it up along the boards to Ryan Graves...

For no reason. | Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The first week of the New Jersey Devils preseason ends tonight with the end of a home-and-home series with Our Hated Rivals, the New York Rangers. This game is at the Rock, a far better place than MSG. Fans can discuss the game here as it happens. The rivalry still burns even in exhibition games. This is the second half of a home-and-home with Our Hated Rivals. It will take place at the far more friendly confines of The Rock. May the unenlightened supporters of the away team be better behaved than the last time Our Hated...

Simon Nemec: Let Him Ride or Let His Contract Slide?

Simon Nemec: Let Him Ride or Let His Contract Slide?

Simon Nemec will go pro in North America. In NJ or in Utica or, perhaps, both? | Photo by Bruce Bennett/ One of the decisions the New Jersey Devils will make in preseason is what to do with defenseman Simon Nemec. He is on an entry level contract and so he can play for New Jersey. Would it be better for him to play in Utica and let his ELC slide? This post discusses that decision in detail. The New Jersey Devils drafted defenseman Simon Nemec at second overall in the 2022 NHL Draft back in July 2022. Nemec was drafted out of HK Nitra of the Slovakian hockey league -...

Devils Dominate Rangers Despite Lopsided Lineup Choices in 5-2 Preseason Win

Tatar played a good game tonight. | Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Devils went for a largely fringe approach to tonight’s preseason game, with the Rangers playing most of their top players. The Devils outshot the Rangers 36-17. First Period The New Jersey Devils, to my delight, controlled play in the opening minutes against the New York Rangers. While neither team had great chances at even strength, initially, the Devils did a good job of jumping up on defense and interrupting passing lanes. Tomas Tatar finally got a golden opportunity when he picked off a pass and made...

The first game is tonight and at the World’s Most Overrated Arena. The game may not count, but the rivalry still burns all the same. The rivalry still burns even in exhibition games. The game may not count. But the memories of what happen could live on. Like a certain ex-goaltender slandering a now-retired New Jersey Devil defenseman for what was an accident. Just to...

Should We Be Encouraged by the New Jersey Devils Preseason Results So Far?

Should We Be Encouraged by the New Jersey Devils Preseason Results So Far?

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports The New Jersey Devils are two games into their preseason schedule and have posted two wins. Based on these results, today we take a look at whether we should feel good about this, or if we should maybe temper the expectations. Preseason in the NHL is always a funny thing; sometimes teams perform really well during it and don’t do great once the real deal starts. Other times teams have an awful preseason and wind up doing well during the regular season; sometimes during a campaign, teams perform exactly the same way they did in the...

Stop Trying to Make Top-9 Forward Miles Wood Happen

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Miles Wood is now one of the longest tenured Devils. But while Lindy Ruff may have a high opinion of the player, Wood’s game is still best suited for the 4th line. Yes, I did just reference an 18 year-old movie quote for this title. What of it? It’s the start of Devils training camp and you know what thats means… Arguing about line combinations before the team has even played a single regular season game. The Devils are now a week into training camp and initial lines have been formed. Undoubtably some of these lines won’t last another...
