NHL: New Jersey Devils at San Jose Sharks John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode, Dan and John talk about the upcoming prospects challenge in Buffalo and discuss the opportunity to get the first in-game look at the number three prospect pipeline in the NHL according to The Athletic’s Corey Pronman ($). His take is quite different than All About the Jersey’s own Top 25 Under 25 List, the first part of which is discussed and can be found here. Part 2 will be discussed next week but (spoilers), check out who made the Top 20 so far.

Then, the guys give a salute to Ben Lovejoy and his several years of service to the New Jersey Devils and follow it up with a plea to Pavel Zacha and some notes about the NHL’s recent choice not to reopen the current collective bargaining agreement, which you can read about here.

Will you be watching the prospects challenge? What do you need to see from Zacha this year to assure his place as a Devil moving forward?
