One of the things that make me a proud Devils fan is the way the Devils, as an organization, keep ex coaches and players in the organization. Lemaire, Larry Robinson, Scott Stevens, Daneyko, etc. I have lived my whole life in Virginia and have followed the Devils since before their move from Denver. In the land of Capitals fans, everyone always ask me why I pull for the Devils and I tell them....tradition, loyalty, and dedication to always field a competitive team, year in and out ! What more could any fan ask of their chosen team? I sure have enjoyed the ride the last 33 plus years !

That's right. What do the Celtics, Lakers, Yankees and Packers have in common? Tradition. The mind set was always the same. It was also true for the Habs, but something went awry. Dont know if it was new ownership or the press.

As much as I am glad and appreciate when Jacques and the like have done to build and mold this team and history....I'm also glad they're NOT around running the show now....when would we ever see a "trusted vet" like Sykora sat for a rookie coming back from an injury in JJ??

More proof we've evolved into the modern game of hockey and we have the right guy running the ship.....gonna be nice NOT coach-hunting this off-season :)

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:
gionta182, devilsfan26 .... WHO'S NEXT??

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

June 6, 2007... the NHL dies just a little bit.....

Lemaire is awesome - but this is all on Lou and DeBoer. :evil:


Lou found DeBoer. DeBoer was truthful o Lou.
Lemaire was there to smooth the transition but ultimately wasn't even necessary - and I hope he feels proud and relieved!
