Garden State of Hockey- Episode 67: Upcoming Decisions

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Which prospects have more to prove to remain in the Devils system? This episode acts as a companion to John’s piece from Sunday regarding prospects with something to prove in the next year. We went over the players mentioned in here and discussed where they fit in the current Devils system in addition to their performance so far in their various assignments. Some players are currently on contracts and some are unsigned as of yet but all of these names should be familiar to Devils fans.

Goaltending Could Get the Devils to the Playoffs

Goaltending Could Get the Devils to the Playoffs

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ *Bats fruit out of air * ... COULD!!!, I said “Could” get the playoffs. Anyway, here’s how. Given that the Devils were one of the worst teams in the NHL last year and they traded away their best offensive forward (Hall), defensive forward (Coleman), and defensive defenceman (Greene); and have a GM/HC combo each in his first full year with in the position for the team; it’s fair to wonder if the Devils can ice an even remotely competent this season. I’ve had that concern myself. Furthermore, I think some fans don’t even mind struggling again. We now...

New Jersey Devils Prospect Update: 10/20/20

Nick Merkley had 2 goals and 2 assists in 3 games in Liiga (Finland) this past week. I couldn’t find a picture of him in a Devils uniform so enjoy this picture of him from his Kelowna Rockets days. The 2nd week of the 2020-21 prospect update was highlighted by Nick Merkley’s offensive outburst in Finland, Alexander Holtz and Jesper Boqvist keep being productive in Sweden, and Benjamin Baumgartner scoring a goal that was assisted by a legend. The 2nd week of the 2020-21 New Jersey Devils prospect update was an eventful one both on and off the ice. The COVID-19 situation in Quebec saw...

Fitzgerald is Playing the Right Game for the Devils

Fitzgerald is Playing the Right Game for the Devils

Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via As the official new GM, Fitzgerald had a lot of options about how he wanted to attack the draft and free agency. From what I have seen, regardless of what you feel about the players he drafted or signed, he has gone about it the right way so far. When bringing on a new GM, there is always some worry that they will want to make a big splash, show that they can turn a team around quickly. GMs are usually given more leeway and a longer timeframe than head coaches, but if they take over a team and it is still bad in a few years, there is no doubt that a firing...

An Ode to Cory Schneider: A Great Goalie and Stand-Up Guy with Hall-of-Fame Awful Timing

An Ode to Cory Schneider: A Great Goalie and Stand-Up Guy with Hall-of-Fame Awful Timing

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Cory Schneider, a once-great goalie who fell off hard in recent years, will leave behind a strange legacy in New Jersey. How will we remember his time in red and black? As anyone who follows the Devils with any regularity now knows, the Devils bought out goaltender Cory Schneider last week. Schneider spent seven years with the organization after being acquired at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He spent roughly half of those seven years being one of the very best goalies in hockey and much of the other half being either injured or a complete...

Garden State of Hockey- Episode 66: Fitz Starts Dealing

Fitzgerald follows up a solid draft with a nice start to the free agency period. Tom Fitzgerald has been making moves to improve the Devils, so in terms of qualifications at GM, he’s building them. The first was acquiring Ryan Murray on the eve of free agency, which he followed up on by signing Corey Crawford to a reasonable deal and subsequently, he jettisoned Joey Anderson to bring in Andreas Johnsson. Finally, he most recently signed Scott Wedgewood, Stanley Cup Champion, back to the organization. John took a look at all of these moves in these summaries: Ryan Murray Corey...
