Practically every New Jersey Devils fan recognizes these names, which span across all eras of the organization’s 37 seasons in the Garden State. The greatness of this group is simply unparalleled, and you won’t find a lineup of more decorated players. Kirk Muller had at least 70 points in five of his seven seasons with New Jersey and was instrumental in the Devils clinching their first playoff berth, during which they came within one win of reaching the Stanley Cup Finals.
In addition to being the organization’s second-highest all-time points leader, John MacLean had three 40-goal seasons in New Jersey and helped them capture their first Stanley Cup in 1995. Travis Zajac is currently the team’s most-tenured and versatile player, who’s been a top-two center the vast majority of his 14 seasons with the Devils. He has the most points among centers in team history and was one of their best performers during New Jersey’s 2012 run to the Stanley Cup Finals.
The defense and goaltending speak for themselves, brandishing two Hall of Fame defenseman and the greatest goaltender of all time. All three of their numbers are retired, and they won as many cups over the 11 seasons playing together. Scott Stevens, who captained all three New Jersey Devils championships was the game’s most-feared hitter, while Scott Niedermayer is touted as one of the modern era’s greatest and most mobile blueliners, who won the ultimate prize (and a Norris Trophy in 2004) at every level he’s played. Martin Brodeur rewrote the record books, collecting 364 wins, 124 shutouts, and making five Stanley Cup Finals appearances.
