NEWARK, NEW JERSEY - FEBRUARY 19: John Hynes of the New Jersey Devils works the bench against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center on February 19, 2019 in Newark, New Jersey. The Penguins defeated the Devils 4-3.

After a VERY slow start to the season for the New Jersey Devils, former head coach John Hynes has been relieved of his duties.

The New Jersey Devils have had a slow start to this season, even with the amount of talent they have on the team.

In 26 games played this year, the team is last in the division with a 9-13-4 record. They also sit second to last in the Eastern Conference.

During his tenure of four-plus years with the New Jersey Devils, the team went 150-159-45. The team also made the playoffs once and was booted in the first round by the Tampa Bay Lightning in five games.

Top talents on this team are continuing to struggle and the Devils are hoping that a coaching change can get them back where they need to be.

Former Hart Trophy winner Taylor Hall has only four goals this season in 26 games. He is also a -12 on the ice and has a shot percentage of just over four.

Nico Hischier has only four goals since March of last season and the number one overall pick in last year’s draft has only 11 points this season.

Do you think a coaching change can turn this team around?

Who should the Devils look to replace him with?
