Putting DeBoer's struggles with Devils in context

The Sharks' reported hiring of Peter DeBoer has been met with mixed reactions, which is understandable since DeBoer took the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final in 2012 and then oversaw a regression that ultimately led to his firing partway through the 2014-15 season, when the Devils were one of the worst teams in the league. However, it's worth considering that there were some circumstances...

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...

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.

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.

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.
