The NHL trade deadline has come and gone and as usual, it was not boring. Regardless of where a team sits in the standings, hope springs eternal. For the buyers, it’s a chance to bring in that missing piece for a long Stanley Cup run. For the sellers, it’s a chance to add pieces for the future. Any way you slice it, the deadline is an exciting day with most hockey fans viewing it as an unofficial holiday. That is unless you are a fan of the New Jersey Devils.
For the Garden State faithful, it’s another opportunity to publicly bash, trash and shred a team they supposedly supported regardless of where they sit in the standings.
