The Hockey Buzz has posted a good look at some Devils prospects. They go over the play of goaltender Scott Wedgewood and winger Reid Boucher. Wedgewood stopped 35 of 36 shots against the Barrie Colts of the OHL. Boucher has 21 goals this season in the OHL. In the article they compare him to Phil Kessel. So there is a lot of potential for the up and coming Devils. Give it a read.
Hockey Buzz has heard that if the Devils are still in the playoff race that they could be in the market for a veteran defenseman. They specifically cite Tim Gleason or Toni Lydman that would fit with the Devils.
To be honest I think the Devils need to find a more offensive defenseman. Both Gleason and Lydman are not really point producing defenseman, they need a young offensive defenseman. The Devils need more goals and a defenseman could possibly replace Kovalchuk on the point on the power play which could get the powerplay going.

Todd Cordell over at HockeyBuzz raises the question, Should the Devils make a move for Cody Franson? It was reported that a team made an offer Franson for a second round pick and a player. No word if it was the Devils but Franson would definitely help the defense. He has a great amount of potential and could help the Devils in the future. Give this a read.
