Scott Niedermayer: I was proud to play for Devils

"Being able to win that first championship was amazing. An unbelievable experience, especially because we were going in as pretty big underdogs. In some ways maybe that made it more special. We obviously believed in our room that we could do it. We believed in ourselves and were able to do it. It was a fun time."

Memories of playing in New Jersey: "I think the best memory, and it's more than one, is the teammates. The guys I played with. Talk about Scotty and Dano, but the list is long. Obviously Marty (Brodeur). He saved my butt on a number of times and made me look better than I probably was out there. So many great players-- (John) MacLean, Randy McKay, Sergei Brylin. Some great friends like (Jay) Pandolfo. So many great people. Teammates, people that worked for the organization, the coaches and training staff that probably works harder than us players. So that really are the memories I cherish now more than anything now. Maybe more than

What did you know about New Jersey when you arrived?: "I actually had a older green and red jersey when I was a kid. So I knew the colors of the team. I'd worn that jersey around. I remember, I think it was '87, the playoff run (actually 1988), watching the playoff run on TV as a kid and kind of getting caught up in the excitement that was here at that time on TV. I obviously knew some of the players. As a kid you know who the players are in the NHL.

"When I got here I was young, green. I didn't really have any expectations whether it was New Jersey or anywhere in the NHL for that matter. It was a whole new world for me. I went out and tried to do my best, figure it out as I went. It became home after a while. Initially when you're here you're kind of immersed in what you're doing. Then you start having kids and they're going to school and playing sports. You start getting plugged into the community a little bit. And we really enjoyed our time. We probably would never have ended up on the East Coast had I not been drafted here, we're glad we had the experience of living out here as long as we did."

You know -- these things always annoy me.

Nieds is just never the man I want him to be.

He's wonderful and great and smart and interesting enough and all... he's complex enough. He's very honest. I don't find him guarded or distant. He loves family. He's loyal - you can see he's a loyal guy. He's a needy vulnerable guy even. He gets passionate and out of control. I get a sense of where he's coming from -- but then ... I just don't feel it.

I can never really appreciate him a much as he really does deserve. What is it about Scott Stevens that makes him so much more adorable?

I guess I want Nieds to have his same skills but Stevens personality. So close... and yet sooooo far!

all this posting is cutting into my bandwidth and I can't watch an uninterrupted Netflix download of old Ghost Whisperers. JLH has some HUGE tits...and that can! It's cute but yeesh how much work for her to not be a fatass...

and I hate Scarlett Johanson -- she's a big soft flabby titty flabb flabster flabby puffed up estrogen flab monster. I'm glad dudes like her though -- then there's hope when I'm all fat and hormonal. "You're sexy" -- I"M FAT AND HORMONAL DON"T TOUCH THOSE!!! :lol: poor men.
