Hi... just thought I'd post since I'm new here. I forget how I came upon this site.

Um... some quick info on me because I don't want to bore people. I live (near) Toronto (Oshawa)... but I can assure you I'm not a Leafs fan. Every day I go through life getting ridiculed for being a hardcore Devils fan. But then I just remind my buddies that I've seen my team win three Stanley Cups.

I've seen the Devils play three times in person. Once in 96 if I'm not mistaken and they tied 2-2 in Toronto. And I've taken two road trips to Jersey to see them play in 99-00 beating Buffalo 4-1 I think... and the year after that in their first meeting with the Blue Jackets tying 2-all.

Other than that... it's sometimes cool to live here. I'm in college... one of my roommates' cousins is Matt Bradley (he plans for the Penguins)... a girl I know is the sister to Curtis Sanford of the Blues... and one of my professors, his daughter is married to Ron Tugnutt. In high school my friend's cousin was Joe Nieuwendyk. Never met him though.

And now that I've bored you, I'll leave.

Hi again... see you all around the forums.

Cheers,
- Roland

PS. And since I don't get to see a lot of games down here (not counting the playoffs)... I end up listening to them all on the radio. So I keep well informed with the team... as I disregard everyone bashing me while I do! :)

We're takin' over!! That's at least three for us in Ontario.

Welcome to the board Roland. I know what it's like to be a hardcore Devs fan right in the heart of the enemy homeland. :P

Yeah but it's easy to make fun of the Rangers. :)

Leaf fans are SO... um...

Anyway, thanks everyone! I actually look forward to having worth-while conversations of Devils hockey. I thought it never existed!

Cheers,

Bonsoir de Montreal!

Yeah, there's a few Canadians, and me, an American hiding in Montreal. :hi: I might take a road trip to Toronto some time in late April, between my finals... but it seems like it would be a killer drive!!!

Leafs fans are a different breed. They kind of know what they're talking about but see the world in blue, so they're somewhat knowledgable and yet completely biased to the point of stupidity at the same time.

Ah, look at me, giving stereotypes. Oh well!

Welcome aboard!

Winner of the 2004 Lady Byng Award and the 2003 and 2004 Joe Nieuwendyk award.

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.
