The New Jersey Devils are selling everything not tied down to the Prudential Center for the right price. What’s the status on every player still wearing red and black as of Sunday?

This is a time of year the New Jersey Devils know all too well over the past few years. Our favorite team is a seller at the NHL Trade Deadline. However, this year is much different than years past. The Devils have some really good assets that are going to be near the top of team’s want list.

There’s already been some of the biggest trades of the season going through New Jersey. Just one week ago, we sat with baited breath as we waited to see where winger Blake Coleman was going. He was held out of the lineup as the Devils faced the Columbus Blue Jackets. Then, we learned that Coleman was headed to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Nolan Foote and a 1st-round pick this season.

Most people were very happy with the return for Coleman, and they were happy with what the Devils got back for Andy Greene. The New York Islanders gave up a 2nd-round pick in 2021 and David Quenneville, who’s at best an AHL defenseman moving forward, for the Devils former captain.

Of course, it seems like a distance memory, but not too long ago Taylor Hall was a member of the New Jersey Devils. Most analysts didn’t like the return for Hall, which includes no guaranteed assets. Nick Merkley looks like a typical change of scenery candidate, and has played very well next to Joey Anderson. Kevin Bahl has been alright while playing with the Ottawa 67’s, but his performance at the World Junior Championship left much to be desired. Nate Schnarr is a fine player, but our expectations are muted at best. The 1st-round pick is by far the best asset there.

The Devils are not done. They have a lot of assets that could come and go in the next 24 hours. Here are the latest rumors on all of them.
