Jaromir Jagr Remembers His Very First Goal, And His Beautiful Mullet

Maybe it's Jaromir Jagr's last season; maybe not, since he did put up 67 points for the Devils last year. But just on the chance that this'll be his last run, let's not wait for the silver anniversary.

Martin Brodeur Gets The Bittersweet Goodbye Nobody Wanted

Martin Brodeur's 688th win capped a celebratory and mournful night in Newark, as fans sent off the face of their franchise with a tentative goodbye.

Attending A Devils Game In A Zach Parise Jersey Sounds Like Hell…

Devils fans booed Zach Parise every time he touched the puck last night, in the star winger's first return to New Jersey since he signed with the Wild in 2012.

Fan Tries To Take Selfie In Front Of Jaromir Jagr, Gets Jagrbombed

Just great work by everyone involved here. That's perfect framing by the selfie taker to get himself, Jagr, and bewildered Devils lady Cory Schneider in the picture, and Jagr has just the right mix of mischievousness and nonchalance that's needed to pull off a good photobomb. » 3/17/14 12:46pm 3/17/14 12:46pm

The NHL's Horseshit Deal With The Devils

Back in 2010, the Devils signed Ilya Kovalchuk to a frontloaded 17-year contract. It was an obvious attempt to clear cap space by sticking cheap, never-intended-to-be-honored seasons on the back end, and the NHL responded swiftly, voiding the deal and fining the Devils $3 million and first- and third-round picks.

Martin Brodeur Asks Out Of New Jersey. But Who Else Would Want Him?

Last night's win over the Red Wings, his 684th all-time, was either Martin Brodeur's last start as a Devil, or his last start as a Devil until Friday (when NJ takes on Detroit again in the first half of back-to-backs). So no one knew quite how to act. » 3/05/14 9:14am 3/05/14 9:14am

Martin Brodeur Blames The Ice For His Being Old And Bad

Martin Brodeur called the makeshift rink at Yankee Stadium "the worst ice I ever played hockey on," and given a 21-year career, that's saying something.
