Hi, Devil Fans,

My name is Stefano and I am a from Italy.

Last year I followed all NJ post-season for an italian site (http://www.playitusa.com)
and it was very nice! If you like to improve your italian, you can read this article I wrote after Game 7 against Anaheim.

I hope to enjoy a new great post-season with you.

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

Since 90% of the people on these boards are from New Jersey, around 89% of them are Italian.

New Jersey = HUGE Italian place.

Welcome aboard - and hope you like Gionta and Parise, our Italians! (Well, not from Italy, but descended from...)

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.
