hmmm 16 years later, How many people on the forums were old enough to remember 1995? LOL



I was 5 years old then... I probably didn't know what hockey was yet...

I was 18 and graduated high school the week before. Drove down to a Modells in Westchester County from Fairfield, CT where I was living at the time just to grab the t-shirt and hat for the town festival that night.

I was 21 and was performing in a drum and bugle corps competition in Waterbury, CT. Since 4 of the 6 corps in competition that night were from New Jersey, the parking lot erupted every time the Devils scored. It was amazing.

FYI: there are a handful of Devils' games available for purchase on iTunes, including all 3 of our cup victories and Marty's 552 vs. Chicago.

I'm seriously considering paying the $6 for 3 cup finals.

Jagknife - I did buy the 3 cup finals games - the only thing about them is the video size is optimized for the iphone, so it looks terrible if you watch it on an apple tv or an ipad.

Other than that, it's great.

I was actually there. I was 11 and with my dad in section 101, row 17, seats 7 & 8. We had season tickets for a few years already and it is still the best game I have ever been to. Still have the ticket stubs someplace.

I was there too...I was 25 and it was my birthday. I had tickets for the last two rounds that year.

Now I see that you were 11 in '95, I can understand why you don't appreciate Brodeur as much as you should...you were old enough to see guys like Burke, Terreri, Billington and others pre-Brodeur, but have probably forgotten how much of step up Marty was from those guys. In ways it's like 20-year-old Yankee fans who have known nothing but the Yankees making the playoffs every season...they don't realize how good they've had it.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I remember very clearly terreri and billington while burke not really (though my first game in 89 he could have started but I forgot). Brodeur is a huge step up and never said he is not hall of fame worthy or he sucked the entire time. I just think he has gone downhill the last few seasons and I will admit a lot has to do with age. Again I will also always cite he played for a good chunk of his. career in the dead puck era and played with white possibly the best defense ever assembled, but he is def at least one of the best ever but maybe not THE best

I was 17 and in section 223 with my father. Loved that section. Best year of my life. Graduated high school, Devils won the cup, started dating my wife, saw my favorite band for the first time (and two more times) and took my first trip to Aruba and then Toronto a few weeks later and kissed the cup at the hall of fame.

We stayed in the arena as long as we could after the game and made our way down to ice level. They were breaking down the rink pretty quickly because the Power Rangers had a show there the next day. Anyway, the glass behind the bench was down already and being the rebellious teenager I was (along with my friends from high school who were also there) I grabbed a gatorade bottle still half full of water, a couple towels, some red and black tape, and media notes, all from the bench. My one friend had Claude Lemieux's HELMET in his hands and was about to walk off with it but had second thoughts, especially after security yelled at him to put it down. By the time we got to the parking lot it was deserted and filled with empty champagne bottles. My other friend there grabbed a parking cone and we paraded it around like it was the cup. He started a stupid tradition of stealing a parking cone from the lot for every cup victory (he took one from the parking lot celebration in 2000).
