5 Pieces New Jersey Devils Can "Sell" At NHL Trade Deadline

The New Jersey Devils have been considered buyers this entire season, but as we sit less than two weeks from the NHL Trade Deadline, it seems like the Devils should consider themselves sellers. If they do, who might be on the chopping block?

Colin Miller

Just as Smith will be worth something as a depth defenseman, so will Colin Miller. He actually brings some unique skills that could make teams salivate if he becomes available. His bomb of a shot could really help a team looking for someone who can get the puck through traffic. Miller is also decent defensively and less prone to mistakes than Smith.

The Devils would be lucky to get back what they spent on Miller in the first place. They sent a 2025 fifth-round pick to the Dallas Stars prior to this season. If the Devils can get a future fifth that they can use in future trades for a season that has more on the line, it might be worth it.

The 31-year-old has enough playoff experience to be intriguing. He's been to the postseason with the Boston Bruins, Vegas Golden Knights, and Dallas Stars. He was on that first Golden Knights team that made a surprise run to the Stanley Cup Final. He has a total of 40 playoff games under his belt and has 12 points in those contests.

Last season, he played two rounds with the Dallas Stars. This year, Miller is heading into free agency, so there is low risk for the team on the other side of the trade. That makes it even more intriguing.
