All 82 games are in the books. The New Jersey Devils are not in the playoffs. At 32-36-14 (78 points), it was a third consecutive season of disappointment. New Jersey finished with the sixth fewest point total in the league and changes will be made.

While those decisions will be made eventually by Lou Lamoriello and company, we here at The Hockey Writers want to know which players you’d keep and which players you’d dump.
