The New Jersey Devils have been slumping lately, and their current nine-game losing streak has all but ensured the team will miss the playoffs.
The team is currently 11th in the Eastern Conference, and there are just seven games remaining in what has to be considered a disappointing season.
The Devils put a lot of faith in this season, bringing back 40-year-old Martin Brodeur on what will likely be the last contract of his career. Management acquired numerous players during the season, and at times it looked like the team could contend.
