New Jersey Devils 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

The New Jersey Devils are coming off a strong 2022-23 season that saw them post a .683-win percentage and a second round playoff loss. It was just the second playoff appearance for New Jersey since and the first since 2018. This year, the Devils are fighting for one of the two wild card spots and have spent much of the season on the outside looking in. New Jersey’s problem is a significant drop in defensive production compared to last year. Head coach Lindy Ruff will need to cut down the goals against, or New Jersey will be on the outside looking in.

New Jersey Devils History

The Devils were founded in 1974 as the Kansas City Scouts. After two years on the Plains, the Scouts became the Colorado Rockies for six seasons. They found permanent residence in New Jersey starting in the 1982-83 season and have won three Stanley Cup titles.

When the Devils set up operations in New Jersey, then-Edmonton Oilers superstar Wayne Gretzky derided them as a “Mickey Mouse Organization.”

And the Great One had a case to make. The Devils never had a winning season in their first five years of operations. But a stirring 1988 playoff run gave the franchise identity and created a fan base. From 1988 through 2012, the Devils missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs only three times.

Lou Lamoriello was the architect of the New Jersey success and Stanley Cup titles. Lamoriello soon became the absolute dictator of the Devils and transformed them into a perennial Cup contender and a secretive organization that developed its own mystique. Lamoriello had three different head coaches for his three Stanley Cup championship teams. He was never afraid to fire a head coach late in the regular season before the playoffs. Larry Robinson took over with eight games to play in 2000 and led New Jersey to a Cup title.

The greatest Devil player of all time was goaltender Martin Brodeur. His #30 is one of five numbers retired by the Devils. The others are defenseman Ken Daneyko #3, defenseman Scott Stevens #4, left wing Patrik Elias #26, and defenseman Scott Niedermayer #27.

Of course, the Devils are also known for being a lead cause of the hated “Dead Puck Era” during their glory years. The neutral zone trap suffocated excitement and goal scoring from the game. Goal scoring levels have never returned to what they were before that Devils' reign.
