Time For The New Jersey Devils To Step Up

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

A couple of years ago, I’d have said that this is a team in dire need of John Tortorella’s Shock Doctrine, but I just don’t know at this point whether he can relate constructively to the newest generation of elite talents. It would be worth the Devils’ while to find out, though. Perhaps Maurice can be recruited to go behind the bench.

Again. Not a single meaningful game in the second half of a season since 2018. Four years of hockey irrelevance, except on the one and only date on the calendar that needs to be circled. That would be Lottery Day. That is the day on which the Devils matter....

Friday night’s season finale at the Rock was deemed Fan Appreciation Night. The organization should have been appreciative that Devils fans did not show up en masse wearing paper bags over their heads. There is a heritage to uphold here. Ownership has an obligation to remember that.

The buck stops at the top.

Jack Hughes Done For The Season

via the New Jersey Devils,

The New Jersey Devils provided the following medical update on center Jack Hughes who suffered an injury to his left knee during Sunday's game against the New York Islanders.

Following imaging and evaluation of Jack's injury by the Devils medical staff and head orthopedic surgeon/Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jonathan L. Glashow, it was determined that Jack suffered a low grade MCL sprain of his left knee.

Given the timing, he will be held out of game action for the rest of the season. Jack will begin his motion rehab and conditioning immediately.

Trading P.K. Subban

from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News,

Not all that long ago, the idea that an available P.K. Subban would be ignored by NHL GMs seeking to improve their defense was a laughable one. 

The veteran and multi-time all-star had an on-ice talent as immense as his personality, and teams that employed him were able to command a notable amount of assets in return for him in a trade.

Today, though, Subban is nearing the end of the eight-year, $72-million contract he signed with the Montreal Canadiens in 2014 – and as the NHL’s March 21 trade deadline looms large, you don’t hear a peep of his name in rumors. At age 32, and now, as a New Jersey Devil, Subban has declined as an offensive force – he has just three goals and 18 points while averaging 19:10 of ice time in 53 games this season – and he was never an elite defender to begin with. Lately, he’s become more famous for being a slew-footer than anything else. And the idea he was going to be offered anywhere close to his current $9-million salary to remain in New Jersey is preposterous.

“I sat down with P.K. yesterday, and we talked about uncertainty, and the deadline, and that we're not at a spot where we're looking to extend him at this point," Devils GM Tom Fitzgerald told The Athletic this weekend. “He’s done a lot for community here and the organization. But I told him, ‘On the last day (before the trade deadline), somebody may lose a right-shot ‘D’ and may call me, and if the move makes sense for the New Jersey Devils and makes sense for you to potentially have a chance to win, I have to do what's best for the organization.”

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

We here at Slap Shots would like to congratulate Mackenzie Blackwood for becoming the first fifth-grader to play in the NHL.

Because the Devils goaltender displayed the mentality of a 10-year-old, and not a very aware one at that, with a verified posted comment on P.K. Subban’s verified Instagram account on Thursday, in which Blackwood referred to the defenseman as, “SLEWBAN.”

He even added a little on-fire emoji to the comment on Subban’s post that pictured the postgame congrats following the Devils’ 3-0 victory over the Flyers on Wednesday.

Blackwood thinks it is funny that Subban has already kicked the feet out from under five opponents, and not been suspended for any of them? Hahaha. Sammy Blais suffered a season-ending torn ACL on one of those plays. Oh, hilarious. Would Blackwood invent a nickname for a player who injured Jack Hughes on a dirty play?

Defenders of the defenseman have insisted straight down the line that Subban’s transgressions do not fall under the definition of slew-footing, which the league insists with a straight face that it takes very seriously.

Now here is Blackwood anointing No. 76, “SLEWBAN.”

You won’t find the comment if you check Subban’s account now. To the Devils’ credit, we are told that once alerted to the posted comment, management immediately addressed the issue with Blackwood. The goaltender soon after deleted the comment.

continued plus more topics.

The New Jersey Devils Introduce Their Black Sweater

NEWARK, NJ – (November 23, 2021) – The New Jersey Devils, today, announced the historic release of the organization’s first-ever third jersey.  Acknowledging the clamoring of fans who have been asking for a primary black jersey for years, the Devils answered with a black-inspired/red-shadowed design that weaves together Jersey pride, Devils history and the state’s professional hockey heritage. In collaboration with the New Jersey Devils, NHL and adidas, this sweater is reflective of 90 years of New Jersey hockey history, created by the Devils nearly 40-year legacy and has been guided by the Hall of Fame goaltender, Martin Brodeur.  The sweater is a bold step forward for the Devils brand, aligning with the momentum of a team primed to pivot to a future window of success.

“The organization has been playing with the same jersey for almost 40 years, and to be a part of bringing a third jersey for our fans to enjoy is going to leave a great mark,” said Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils Legend. “The new sweater is inspired by a history of hockey in the Garden State that fans may not be familiar with, and layered with design elements of Devils championship success. This is a jersey our alumni are envious of that they wished they could have played in it back in their day. People throughout the state and country know us as “Jersey,” this is our place, our home and this jersey signifies that.”
