New Jersey Devils 2014-2015 Outlook
The Devils fell out of the mix quickly last year and never really recovered, despite a late push to get within shouting distance of a playoff spot. And they’re an old team that relies heavily on declining guys like Jaromir Jagr (42) and Patrik Elias (38), so in theory we should expect them to be even worse this year.
But despite that, there’s reason to believe that they’re better than we all think. They were a very good possession team last year, which would normally translate to a playoff spot. It didn’t for the Devils because they gave up too many goals, and most of that falls on Brodeur.4 With him gone and Schneider starting 60-plus games, that problem appears to be solved.
The New Jersey Devils were originally founded in 1974 in Kansas City, Missouri as the Kansas City Scouts. After only two seasons, the franchise moved from Kansas City to Denver, Colorado, where the franchise played as the Colorado Rockies from 1976 through 1982. The New Jersey Devils franchise moved to Newark, New Jersey in 1982 and they have played in New Jersey ever since. After mixed results during the early franchise years, the New Jersey Devils recorded their first 100 point season during the 1993-1994 NHL season. The New Jersey Devils had the 2nd best record in the NHL behind hated rival New York Rangers. The New Jersey Devils lost each game to the New York Rangers during the regular season, and the 2 teams met in one of the more memorable Eastern Conference Finals during the 1994 playoff run. The New Jersey Devils took a 3-2 series lead when New York Rangers Captain Mark Messier made his famous guarantee that the New York Rangers would ultimately win the series. Messier recorded a natural hat trick in the 3rd period of Game 6 to lead the Rangers to the Game 6 win and the New York Rangers eventually won the series and the Stanley Cup, denying the New Jersey Devils their first ever Stanley Cup title. The New Jersey Devils rebounded well during the strike-shortened 1995 season. The New Jersey Devils swept the heavily favored Detroit Red Wings to win the franchise’s first ever Stanley Cup – this was also the state of New Jersey’s first ever major professional sports championship. The same core of players – Bobby Holik, Claude Lemieux, Scott Niedermayer, Martin Brodeur and Scott Stevens – kept the New Jersey Devils competitive for several years to come, but the crew would not reach another Stanley Cup Finals until the 1999-2000 playoff run. That year, the New Jersey Devils defeated the defending champion Dallas Stars 4-2 to record the franchise’s 2nd Stanley Cup title. The franchise recorded its 3rd Stanley Cup title in 2003 when the New Jersey Devils defeated the Anaheim Ducks in a memorable 7 game series.
The New Jersey Devils have retired the following players’ numbers: Ken Daneyko’s #3 and Scott Stevens’ #4.
