There are some interesting names on the New Jersey Devils unprotected list. Rob DeLuca profiled them here. Will Butcher is a still young former Hobey Baker Award-winning defenseman. P.K. Subban is a defenseman who still has a rocket for a shot and has the offensive instincts to contribute to a good team. Andreas Johnsson is a primed bounce-back candidate. Nathan Bastian is a big bottom-six forward who could be a part of a team’s solution.
