Power Rankings
Four consecutive wins for the Devils have provided a glimmer of hope, if a faint one. They're not going to make the postseason despite the run as they're eight points back. Cory Schneider has quietly been a lot better in the second half.
The Devils have been downright hard to watch lately. They've lost four straight and have scored just five goals over that span. They're out of the hunt and need to consider getting something out of this rough season with some trades.
What's next for the Devils? They're out of the race, but how does Lou Lamoriello help right the ship? There are probably some trades to be made, some prospects to get looks at, at the NHL level. Anything to salvage something from a disappointing year.
The Devils aren't dead yet, at least they're not playing like it, with a 6-2-2 record over their last 10 games. The trade rumors continue to swirl around New Jersey, particularly veteran Jaromir Jagr.
There's not a lot of good going on in New Jersey right now. The team is struggling mightily, the coach/GM/president hybrid Lou Lamoriello is getting sued by a former exec and trade rumors surrounding future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr as trade bait doesn't help sell tickets.
The Devils are 5-5-1 since Peter DeBoer was fired. Not terrible, but also not enough to propel them away from a range in which they'll get a favorable draft pick. That's probably a good thing.
As the Devils remain near the league's basement, there might have to be some organizational soul searching here. This team has to find a way to get younger and start looking to the future.
Jaromir Jagr's hat trick against the Flyers was a pleasant distraction from what's been going on lately in New Jersey. The Devils will need a miracle to turn things around and they don't look like they have one in them.
The firing of Peter DeBoer always seemed likely, but the Devils new three-headed monster behind the bench with Lou Lamoriello, Scott Stevens and Adam Oates running things is odd. Will it pay off?
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.
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.
