Power Rankings
With a 1-5-1 mark over their last seven games, the Devils are continually trending downward as this season slips further away from them. They'll have a pretty tough schedule coming out of the holiday break as well.
Head coach Peter DeBoer has gotten a vote of confidence from Jaromir Jagr, which must be nice. That doesn't change the fact that the coach has to be feeling the heat as the Devils continue to fall well short of expectations.
With the first coach being fired this season, how much longer does Peter DeBoer have before he receives a similar call? The Devils are mired in an 11-13-4 start.
The clock appears to be ticking on Peter DeBoer's time with the Devils and midnight looks ever closer. New Jersey is 3-5-2 in its last 10 and shows few signs of improvement.
Cory Schneider has shouldered a heavy load without much help. He's needed to be better, but the Devils' inability to make things easier on him has head coach Peter DeBoer on the hot seat.
Finding a way to get Cory Schneider some rest seems necessary. He has started all 18 games for the club and the results just aren't coming from the Devils' new long-term goaltender.
The Devils have dealt with a lot of key injuries and are tail-spinning a bit right now as a result. New Jersey may need to find a way to mix in some more rest for starter Cory Schneider as well.
The Devils have been hard to figure out this year, but a lot should be learned about them in their early November schedule, which includes games against some of the league's best.
Cory Schneider has yet to play his best, which may be contributing to the Devils' up-and-down start. New Jersey's young defensemen also have to grow up quickly.
The Devils hot start has cooled and part of that is due to an inconsistent start from Cory Schneider. Good goalies can have bad nights and Schneider's work hasn't created any instances of long-term concern yet.
Preseason Power Rankings
Raise your hand if you thought the New Jersey Devils would open the season with an 11-goal onslaught. Put that hand down. New addition Mike Cammalleri has three of those 11.
