John MacLean. Kovalchuk would be a good prediction for someone to break Elias' record, but he started his career with the Atlanta Thrashers, therefore not scoring goals with New Jersey.

|After making the playoffs for 13 straight seasons, the Devils missed the playoffs for the 2010-11 season. How many points did they score through the season (note: points are how teams are ranked in the NHL, goals are the difference in games)?||The New Jersey Devils
81. 174 is the number of goals the Devils scored that season, 82 is the number of games they played, and 38 is the amount of games the Devils won. That leaves 81 which is obviously the amount of points scored. The way the points system works in the NHL is you get 2 points for any win and 1 point for any loss in overtime or shootout. 76 of the Devils 81 points came from wins, the remaining 5 points came from loses in OT or shootout. This was the least amount of points they have scored in a single season since 1990-91 when they scored 79 pts, except for the lockout shortened 1994-95 season where they won their first Stanley Cup.
|At the start of the Devils franchise, where did they play and what was their team name?||The New Jersey Devils

Ilya Kovalchuk. Ilya Kovalchuk and Anssi Salmela were traded to the New Jersey Devils for Johnny Oduya, Niclas Bergfors, Patrice Cormier, and New Jersey's first round draft pick on February 4th, 2010.
|Which New Jersey Devil played for the Danbury Trashers of the UHL before eventually coming back to play for the Devils in the 2006-07 season?||The New Jersey Devils
