New players, same dissapointing Devils

I said after the Devils’ horrendous opener that I didn’t want to go nuts in terms of calling for John Hynes to be fired or anything drastic like that, although I certainly didn’t like the signs coming out of that … Continue reading

Devils waive Brunner

In a move only mildly surprising based on the timing of it, the Devils waived forward Damien Brunner earlier today.  Despite the fact multiple forwards are still out of the lineup, the organization clearly deems Brunner and his $2.5 million … Continue reading

Thawing out

After being snowed in figuratively (with losses in their previous two games) and literally on Saturday with the second of three major storms in the area so far, the Devils and the weather both finally seem to be warming up … Continue reading

Ghosts of seasons past loom over Devils’ 2-0 loss to Kings

What was ironic about the Devils’ loss to the Kings in the teams’ first game since the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals is that for the first period and the early part of the second it didn’t feel like a revenge … Continue reading
