2. Scott Stevens

While Martin Brodeur was ranked at #1, we can argue that the Devils run as a Stanley Cup contender truly began with the signing of Scott Stevens.

2005-2007 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductees are up.

Over the last few months, we here at Notinhalloffame.com have been so focused on other endeavors at the site, that we neglected to tell you about the continuing opportunity fro you to cast your opinion on existing Hockey Hall of Famers.

When your time permits, take a look at this group and let us know if their Hall of Fame inductions are justified!



Our All-Time Top 50 New Jersey Devils are now up

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the New Jersey Devils. 

An expansion team in 1974, the Devils were originally the Kansas City Scouts, but they only stayed there for two years before relocating to Denver and becoming the Colorado Rockies.  That only lasted six years before they relocated to New Jersey to become the Devils. After a few more years of mediocrity, they adopted a defensive strategy and won three Stanley Cups, 1995, 2000 & 2003.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following: 

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.

3. Playoff accomplishments.

4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2019-20 Season.

The complete list can be found here, but as always, we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

1. Martin Brodeur

2. Scott Stevens

3. Scott Niedermayer

4. Patrik Elias

5. Ken Daneyko

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  

Look for our more material coming soon!

As always we thank you for your support.

Scott Stevens

Scott Stevens was a hard hitting; punishing Defenceman whose lengthy tenure in the National Hockey League was best known for his leadership as a member of the New Jersey Devils where he helped to lead them to three Stanley Cups. Stevens was a very good two way player and he had over 900 points in his career. He may not have won the Norris Trophy, but he did capture the Conn Smythe in 2000 and was a multi time Post Season All Star Selection. He was never a player who was considered the top of his position, but he was close to that level, and his Hall of Fame induction was warranted.
