Puck Prospectus: Devils Second Best Drafting Team since 1994

3

I found this link through the Devils forum on HF Boards. It ties in nicely with what I put up over the weekend, that the Devils are the second best team overall in the NHL in the last 15 years. After all, you need to draft plenty of talented players to remain a consistent contender in the NHL. Tom Awad uses a metric called GVT to determine who has been the most successful at drafting in the last 15 years. Awad expected the Devils in first, but I think those "lean" years from 1999 through 2002 hold the Devils back. I think you'll be surprised who he found was first!

27 Years Ago Today: The Devils became a Reality

While the Devils name didn't come until June 30, it became official on May 27, 1982 that John McMullen's bid was approved by the NHL Board of Governors to move the Colorado Rockies to New Jersey. Incidentally, the link goes to a brief history of the erstwhile Colorado Rockies. Back in the day when Don Cherry was a coach, Chico was young, and Rock and Roll Pt. 2 was rocking the fans after goals. Thanks to Frank D for the tip.
