The New Jersey Devils continue to disappoint on all levels. Injuries and terrible play have caused them to be arguably the most disappointing team to open the season. The team shows no signs of turning things around.

Injuries have hit around the league and one of the better centers in the game will miss significant time with an injury.

Which players need to be ousted from their fantasy lineups at the moment?




Vincent Lecavalier, Tampa Bay Lightning

Lecavalier was enjoying a decent season with three goals and six assists.

Then, in the first period of the game against the Capitals on November 11, Lecavalier broke his hand and is expected to miss a month.

Ilya Kovalchuk, New Jersey Devils

Kovalchuk has made this list before and he will continue to make the list until he turns things around.

He has been absolutely terrible for the New Jersey Devils, who have been extremely disappointing this season due to injuries and ineffective play.

For the week, Kovalchuk has failed to score or put up an assist. He has only taken seven shots on goal and is a minus-three.

Jarome Iginla, Calgary Flames

Iginla used to be a lock as a top 10 fantasy player, but is failing to keep up this season.

For the week, Iginla is minus-one and has yet to score or tally an assist.

One of the premiere wingers in the game, fantasy owners must stick through his current woes.




Shea Weber, Nashville Predators

Weber is one of the better defenseman in the league for fantasy but you wouldn’t be able to tell this week.

Although he has 15 shots on goal, he failed to record a goal or assist and is also a minus-two.

Not much fantasy owners can do with Weber other than wait, as he must stay in fantasy lineups.




Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils

Father time could be finally catching up to Brodeur.

He has had a disappointing start to the season and it continues to get worse, as he's missed the past two games with an elbow injury.

For now, get him out of fantasy lineups until he shows signs of turning things around.
