    This is awesome but can we get some more puck personality

  • oyeahjustcomenting

    I waited so long for this thanks!

  • Casey Lester

    How about we do something about the defense so Schneider doesn’t NEED to bail us out every night? Killin me…

  • TBL2749

    I love this team but it sucks that they always have something go bad for them every year. They are getting better tho, with Hiscier, Johanssen, and Boyle that brings them a lot more production but yeah the goaltending with Schneider is a concern this coming season and hopefully he gets better this season with a new goalie coach. The defense also needs to get better tho as they are pretty average they could possibly fight for a wild card spot but as much i wish that, the reality is I just don’t see it this year or next year. I love this team and what they are doing but they are going to have to at least get a winning season under their belt at this point.

  • Thegreatgreentoad101

    Honestly I see them being a contender for the cup in the next two or three seasons

  • YouTube Sucks

    Why do people keep bringing up Schneider as if he’s an issue?

  • Drue Cappawana

    Cory Schneider is an amazing goalie … when the defense in front of him is at least decent.

  • Jersey Joe

    Last year was hopefully just a fluke. Almost every forward had a down year and then add in Schneider having a career-low and it’s obvious why we had the worst season in thirty years.

    However even with Zajac down for a bit, we have an incredibly exciting forward group that could really exceed expectation. Add in a more experienced Severson and Santini and the dark horse that is Mueller and we could have a team reminiscient to 2015-2016 where we surprised everyone. Just depends on Schneider’s ability to bail out the defense again and how quickly our youth develop.

  • Matt TH

    Hey NHL, it’s time to edit your description of the Pacific Division.

  • flip92

    Devils will make the playoffs mark my words!

  • Comment For Everything

    Some garbage

  • Vanessa Smyth

    IF WE DONT MAKE THE PLAYOFFS WE MIGHT LOSE TAYLOR HALL

  • ckendall67

    – The Devils just lost Travis Zajac for up to 6 months following surgery…so right off the bat they take a huge hit up front. I don’t think things will get much better for the Devils this season. But give ’em maybe a couple more seasons & then you might see the Devils get closer to being a playoff contender.

  • RedEyedCritic

    Why does everyone keep bringing up Schneider as if he’s THE issue? Defense in front of the goalie is always needed!!! My god no goalie wins alone. Just ask Marty if he could win without Stevens and Niedermayer

  • not convinced

    I never understood the concept of not rushing prospects. Theres no better teacher then playing in the nhl.

  • Brent Senak

    Dan Rosen always making me cry a little

  • N7 Torp

    Love my Devils, and I agree with most of this breakdown. Expectations are low, however there’s no need to keep Nico from playing in the top 6. He’ll be a superstar. In few years I can see the Devils giving a significantly better playoff push. Defense obviously needs to be addressed, Schneider isn’t an issue, and when Michael McCloud comes in NJ will finally be set at center. Zajac needs to go, contract is ugly ( so is Greenes). The Marcus Johanssen acquisition was a steal. Hall only has 3 years left on that contract, lets get him in the postseason before it expires

  • Jalen Brito

    Hopefully their first draft isn’t a bust.
