DEVILS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Are The Devils The Sleeper Team In The Metropolitan Division?

For years the NHL preached about the need for parity within the league and I am certainly one to believe that the NHL has reached that goal. Some teams get better, some teams get worse and then come the following summer each team gets to do it all over again. Let’s look at the Metropolitan Division, which as of July 2014 appears that it will look very different from the 2013/2014...

Devils not inclined to invite Martin Brodeur or another veteran goalie to training camp

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello has always been willing to invite an unsigned veteran or two to training camp on a tryout basis, and it could happen again this year. But there is no one on the team’s radar at this point. “If it happens, we’d be totally comfortable with it. But, as of this point, we don’t have a guy like that,” Lamoriello told The Star-Ledger. Lamoriello...

John Quenneville, Devils' first-round draft pick, eyes swift rise to NHL

There is a grace to John Quenneville, the Devils’ top draft choice. As other would-be Devils chugged around the rink Wednesday at the AmeriHealth Pavilion in Newark, carving ruts in the ice, Quenneville glided and changed direction with an abrupt swivel, his skates brushing smoothly over the surface. It was the third day of rookie camp, a time for showing off. Slightly stooped...

New Jersey Is a Top Puck Possession Team

In the 2012/13 lockout shortened season, the New Jersey Devils had the second best Corsi rating in the NHL despite missing the playoffs.  When Ilya Kovalchuk left to play in the KHL, many people picked the Devils to do quite poorly.  I bucked the trend and picked them to have a solid season with the addition of Cory Schneider in goal.  That didn't exactly happen.  The Devils...

The New Jersey Devils aren’t going to be re-signing legendary goalie Martin Brodeur, so to compensate, they brought in all three of his kids to their Development Camp.
