Ryane Clowe Is Having an Impact Post-Injury

13

Ryane Clowe's Devils career got off to a rocky start to say the least, but he has contributed much more since returning from his concussion. Has he turned the corner?

The Ever-Frustrating Marek Zidlicky

17

All hockey players have good days and bad days, but it feels like no one can bounce between extremes quite as quickly or as often as Marek Zidlicky. So is he worth the aggravation?

Can the Devils Offense Turn it Around This Season?

33

The Devils' offense has been bad to this point, but can they rebound? A look at recent history indicates it's possible, but this team has a lot of improving to do to get there.

Defensive Youth Movement Arrives but Will It Stay?

27

The Devils offseason was littered with talk of the you defensemen getting action. It didn't happen early on, but it has certainly picked up in the past month. Are the new guys here for good?

Rostislav Olesz released by Devils to Play in Switzerland

+

Lou Lamoriello let the media know today that Olesz would be leaving the Albany Devils for a job in Switzerland and the Devils would not be blocking him from doing so. From the story at Fire and Ice: "He came over with the intent and hope of playing in the NHL and he had some substantial situations he could have done in Europe," Lamoriello said. "He wanted to play in the NHL and when it didn’t work out he went to Albany and was outstanding with the players there. This is a quality individual, but I think he decided he played enough in the American League last year (with Rockford). It was a decision he made."

The Devils are a team which continues to prevent teams from shooting the puck, but still cannot seem to keep the puck out of the net. Is it still the goalies' fault, or could the defense actually...

Ailing Devils Sleepwalk Through 4-0 Loss in Minny

23

The New Jersey Devils went to Minnesota and laid an egg in a game against the Wild without forwards Travis Zajac and Patrik Elias. Jon Merrill went down early and the Devils hardly attacked in the...

Devils Outplayed; Grab a Point in 3-2 OTL to VAN

Don't Panic Just Yet
