Will be at the game tomorrow in my lucky Elias jersey tomorrow. Bought it in very late 1999 from eBay blank from Canada (shipping took forever) and went to efingers in bound brook wanting to get it lettered with niedermayer. However since it was still the days of where you paid per letter/number I instead settled on Elias.

I wore this jersey pretty much exclusively from about Feb of 2000 until 2008 and at games where I wore it I must have a winning percentage of about 80-90%. I hope they win it for scotty!

Time to wear my Niedermayer jersey one more time tomorrow.

I wore it exclusively all through the 2003 playoffs. No doubt the end to that story is exactly as I wished :evil:

So excited for tomorrow night. Ready to give this guy the love and respect he deserves. Go Devils.

TG is bellyaching on twitter that the Devils didn't have a "media day" for Niedermayer. Is he new here or something? Maybe just another opportune time to aim some more constructive criticism at the organization again.

Surprised you didn't bring up he is a closet Rangers fan. A couple of tweets that bring up a fair point when you compare what every other team does in the league. Not sure your obvious gripe with TG needed to be put in an appreciation thread especially when it doesn't accompany anything about Niedermayer and what he has meant to the organization.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Are you a moderator? On an occasion we are celebrating and "appreciating" a great player, TG has to sieze yet more opportunity to criticize the organization for something he knows is standard OP.

Great player that Devils fans HATED his first several years (they hated Lou too). Glad Lou got the talent around him so he could thrive.

Between Stevens, Nieds, Dano and Rafi, probably the second best corp of defense in the history of the NHL (After Robinson, Savard, Lapointe, Nyrop/Bouchard).

I never hated Niedermayer. Not when he was here and not after he left. I don't recall knowing anyone who ever claimed to hate him.

Not saying there wasn't anyone who felt that way...just that I never met any of 'em.

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.

It's been a hell of a time watching this team from the very beginning...from zero to hero's, the building of a Stanley Cup Team with guys like Scott Niedermayer.

Thank you Scott! :gd:

One of my favorite players in my Gallery!

I always liked Scott Niedermayer. In my mind, Nieder was representative of what the Devils were all about during the team's glory days. Jacques Lemaire had instilled a very disciplined team work ethic in the club. Every player knew his place and did his job. The Devils were tough as a whole, but didn't go around starting trouble. They let the other teams start sh!t and then get frustrated because the Devils wouldn't respond the way the other teams had hoped. The Devs weren't known for a lot of yapping. They just did their jobs, to perfection when working well. And Nieder was maybe the best at playing the Devils' game. He wasn't the star at the time. But he didn't need to be. He was solid. He was quiet. But that's not a knock on him. The Devils as a whole were quiet (hell, even our fans were quiet). The team never got the accolades in this NY/NJ/Philly area. But that was cool. The Devils let the other teams have the limelight. The Devs didn't need that. We had something better. Success. Championships. And Nieder was a big part of that.

Nieds was a stud :cheers:

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."
