Top 10 Forwards in New Jersey Devils History

August 1st, 2010 by levinakl Leave a reply »
After we previously took a look at the goaltenders in Devils history, it's only right that we tackle the forwards next. Although you would expect him to be very high on this list when it's all said and done, Ilya Kovalchuk is not on the list yet, having only played in 27 regular season games thus far as a Devil. Again, this is only based on their contributions to the Devils franchise, not their overall NHL contributions, which definitely impacts the potential rankings of players like Doug Gilmour, Peter Stastny, or Dave Andreychuk. It also impacts players like Zach Parise or Travis Zajac who are not being judged on what they may be expected to do in the coming years, only on what they have done thus far. I analyzed the 26 forwards that have scored at least 200 points in their Devils careers, and used that as a starting basis to narrow it down to my top 10. Keep in mind, points definitely were far from the only criteria used to compile this list, playoff scoring, defensive play, etc. all were factored in.
