Hello all. I'm a long-time Devils fanatic living in Vancouver, BC. I have been following Satan's minions since the mid to late 80's. They are my first love. The Habs are my second love, having grown up in Montreal. But, like any mistress, they always come second. ;)

My all-time favorite player is Stephane Richer. I sure miss seeing #44 out there gliding along the right wing and letting those canons fly. It was great to see some of those blasts against Grant Fuhr at the outdoor Heritage Game in Edmonton earlier this year.

Anyway, cheers. Nice to see so many Devils fans here.

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.

Oh, most definitely... but gisher, hardly anybody has test patterns anymore. Most over-the-air stations have 24-hour programming, and those that don't usually go off the air rather than keeping a test pattern up all night.

And if you want a REALLY old-school test pattern, check out the "Indian Head" pattern from 1939:

IT IS VERY HARD TO WIN ONE STANLEY CUP, FORGET ABOUT THREE... and maybe it's high time some of you actually APPRECIATED THAT instead of treating it like it's some flipping birthright because for some random reason you rooted for the damn Devils!!!!! Posted Image

I almost wish they'd show this test pattern instead of BlackHawks games on TV :)

Very true. There are some stations that keep the tradition alive, however. The CBC (home of Hockey Night In Canada), for instance, throws on "the bars" come 3AM, or so.

I'm determined to bring test patterns back to all television stations across North America! Down with infomercials!!!! :D

Thanks to everyone for saying hello.

GO DEVILS!
