The New Jersey Devils season went about as bad as it possibly could have. Cory Schneider and Mackenzie Blackwood were not nearly as good as they should have been. John Hynes had to get fired because his message just didn’t stick anymore. All the offseason moves didn’t elevate the Devils to the point we thought it would. Now, the Devils sit at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division, more than ten points out of the final Wild Card spot.
It’s become clear that this situation does not bode well for the prospects of re-signing Taylor Hall.
