If you’re wondering what this is, wonder no more. AAtJ is back to ring in the new season with a brand new podcast, the Garden State of Hockey. Dan Rozel and John Fischer started off by recapping some of New Jersey’s off-season moves and stacking up this summer against the off-season of 1991 like Chris Ryan does here for NJ.com. Additionally, some blast from the past names come up in This Week in Devils history with a brief saunter into the organization’s goaltending situation as outlined by Corey Masisak on the Athletic.

Our question for you this week, what are some underrated story-lines going into this season? We all know the big deals and trades but is there someone under the radar that you’re expecting to have a big year? Let us know and if you’d like any specific topics covered, we’d be happy to take a crack at them. And don’t forget to provide any of your hot takes, controversial opinions, and questions of your own for Board Battles. John will pick the most interesting of them and we’ll discuss them in a future episode.
Constructive feedback is appreciated as we continue to iterate and bring you a fan-connected and widely scoped podcast throughout the year.
