New Jersey Devils Podcast Talking Red Episode #241: There Are Only Bad Emergency Podcasts

With some big (and not so great) Devils news dropping on Thursday with Zajac’s injury, Talking Red emerges from its summer hiatus to talk about how the Devils will deal with the blow to their forwards group. Dave and Mike discuss that as well as the newly minted NCAA free agents in this week’s episode.

Talking Red takes a break from its summer break this week to discuss some big Devils news that broke on Thursday. Unfortunately, that news was bad, with the team announcing that Travis Zajac would be out four to six months recovering from a torn pectoral muscle. Dave and I discussed what this means for the team and how the Devils might try to deal with losing arguably their top center and best defensive forward. We went through which players might be called on to step into the void and which young Devils might be leaned on more heavily. Later in the podcast, we also talk about newly available NCAA free agents, including the Devils loss of prospect Alex Kerfoot and their pursuit of Will Butcher and Blaine Byron. Towards the end we wrap up with a couple listener questions.
