2015-2016 Summary In his fourth full regular season with the New Jersey Devils, Stephen Gionta was just one of four players to appear in all 82 games this season.

2015-2016 Summary It’s funny to think at the start of the season, the right wing slot on the line with Adam Henrique and Mike Cammalleri, was a tossup between Lee Stempniak (brought in as a tryout), and Jiri Tlusty. He appeared in just 30 games in 2015-2016, and would slowly lose the faith of the

Playoffs or Bust(ed up)?

Funny, the New Jersey Devils were practically left for dead and eulogized before the season started. They had a better shot at winning the Austin Matthews sweepstakes than winning a single game in the playoffs.
