Dude, that song is even lamer. That would be like a slap in the face.

I hope Doc is a part of tonight's ceremony, since he has to do Detroit/Colorado tomorrow I don't know. He usually MCs these kinds of things and it would be nice if he could be there.

Actually I think I'd be surprized if Doc wasn't there. For some reason I always feel like he bleeds red and black like the rest of us... I'd be less surprized if he called in sick for tomorrow's game :evil:

But then again he is very serious about his obligations so... I hope he's there tonight too though :)

Im telling you .. a darkened arena... a solitary figure emerging from the locker room to the ice .. just the sound of his steps echoing... and the first few notes of " Fanfare for the commom man" .... then the CAA finally implodes just like the Civil Engineers have been screaming for the last 20 years ... :lol:

Well, your night is finally here. I hope you all enjoy it. Scott Stevens meant so much to the Devils.

I'm sure it will be done in a nice fashion. I will be watching as will my brother.

Don't let Stevens talk for at least five minutes. ;)

Quick clarification -- that DOG is NOT going tonight... I am... and I'm psyched :evil:

I'm glad cause you're his biggest fan on this site. Will you be the one screaming, "Hey Stevens! OVER HERE!!!!!" :evil::lol:

2 best moments:

I agree, the ceremony was great and had many moments that I won't forget. I was crying along with Patty, he really cares a lot about what Stevens did for the Devils. Elias for the next C!

I finally was able to watch the ceremony last night and part of the game too

Some further observations on the incredible genuine reactions from:

Cam Jannsen - he looked like he was having a blast out there while everyone was chanting and screaming -... wide eyed rookie

Patrick Elias - validated everyone's tears... what's left to say... give that boy the C

Lou - bear hugs Stevens and probably whispered...'Did we do allright.............. thank you Scott, thank you for the ride "

Brindy - Truly a friends' bon voyage.. and happy trails....

I almost had some tears coming down, especially when I looked up and the noticed Elias was pouring with 'em. I was there that night and was almost brought to tears when everyone started cheering "Thank you Scotty!!" Of course, I pulled myself together and started cheering the same thing. :) Then you could tell Stevens was even more choked up then anyone in the building when you heard him speak.

I liked the way the fans seem to sense that Stevens was starting to lose it and chanted away to give him a breather...
