He will wear the N°15... And Per TG, players congrat him as he steps into middle of ice to lead on-ice stretching by tap their sticks on the ice ...

This is awesome !



That is pretty great. What an awesome way to come back to NJ.

Sykora's wearing 15? Guess it's a chance at redemption for both the player and the number :P

Nice, I'm quite happy with this. Sykora still has very good skills and can light the lamp. At $650k, it's beyond a bargain.

He could have the same amount of points of Rolston for " a little bit less money " ... Bargain !

Every time I think of Sykora now, I think of Kramer going, "Now I'm driivin' the bus."

Welcome back, Pizza Kora.

You also have to keep in mind that Zajac, one of the best players on this team, is down and out until you "decide in February".

Do these Devil retreads EVER do much of anything upon coming back?

Having said that, Sykora really really REALLY seemed to want this in the worst way...maybe it's because he appreciates what he had when he was here through 2002, maybe it's because he knows his days as a NHLer are likely numbered unless he works harder than he ever has, maybe a taste of the KHL and the Czech league made Sykora realize he doesn't want that kind of a hockey life just yet...who knows? Just hope all of that translates into something good for both player and team...

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 believe this is a half year signing. When Zajac comes back, you don't magically have Henrique and Tedenby on the 4th line.

We will see once Zajac comes back.... At this time we would had a proper view of Henrique & Tedenby-under-DeBoer....
and of course, of Syk too !

That could be such a nice problem to have all these guys playing really well !

honestly i feel like its very rare that a player who shows up to try-outs with that much passion does not make the team... not to mention the offensive skills he showed.. he's gonna be a spark at least
