Latest News and Analysis from New Jersey Devils’ Offseason of Transition

May 30th, 2015 by Adam Braun Leave a reply »
The New Jersey Devils opened the offseason in surprising and interesting fashion by hiring a new general manager, Ray Shero, on May 4. But, perhaps somewhat predictably, the news has slowed to an extent since then.

The Devils brought in Shero to help them complete a much-needed period of transition after they missed the playoffs each of the last three seasons, but there are limited options in terms of changes to make at this time of the year.

Once the playoffs end, trade discussions, both related to and separate from the 2015 NHL draft, will likely pick up. At the end of June, the draft will take place. Finally, free agency will open on July 1.

But, this is not to say that nothing of consequence has happened in recent weeks. To the contrary, the Devils have signed three players, had a former coach take a job elsewhere and had a possible head coaching candidate take a job.

This list will discuss and analyze the first moves the New Jersey Devils and Shero have made during this important offseason of change.
