I think the 2014 version of the New Jersey Devils is simply a twisted science experiment designed to induce (and record for posterity) the absolute maximum frustration level possible from a fan base in a single season.

 

I'm willing to bet the Elias Sports Bureau will start implementing a new stat in 2015: It will become known as the Fan Frustration Index (or FFI) and easily out-trend discussions of Corsi and Fenwick as well as the Kardashians on the NHL Twitter account. 

 

Just remember, you heard it here first.

Sadly, if we didn't win the draft lottery that year, we probably would have taken Dougie Hamilton at #8.

I've thought that exact same thing, I was actually rooting for the black and red to grab Hamilton (as the Devils are always willing to draft outside the box), but ultimately I was reassured by all of the Larsson hype and was cool with the pick at the time. I really can't blame the organization for drafting him, but oh, what could have been.
