I don't think I'd follow the team too much if it moved, I'd probably relocate my attention to another team whose roster I "sorta" like or identify, like Buffalo Sabres, Ottawa Senators or Tampa Bay Lightning.. Still, sh!tty.

I'd become a full time Rangers hater. If those prideless guid fans could embrace a team from a state they live in rather than lick the sweat off NYC's balls, the situation wouldn't be there in the first place. Bunch of wannabes. Same goes for Philly.
If you REALLY think about it, this was a very strange place to put a hockey team. South Jersey was covered with Philadelphia, North Jersey was covered with the Rangers and the Islanders. The Flyers had had recent success (back-to-back Cups in '74-'75) and were still competitive, the Islanders were in the thick of their multiple Cup run, and the Rangers were an Original Six with a multi-generational fanbase. Also didn't help that the Devils not only sucked when they came here, but didn't have that Lemieux-type that might have been enough on his own to garner his own following. It seems to be asking a lot to tell Flyer, Islander, and Rangers fans to forget the teams they root for, to root for a bad team they have no connection to other than the "NJ" on the front. I'm sure the NJ part of it meant something to certain people, and I do know some older Devils fans (the ones in their 50s) who became Devils fans almost for that reason alone (Hey, they call MY state HOME), but it's not really THAT compelling a reason to change allegiances.

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 understand that there are no news on the matter but can you all tone down the doom talk? We are potentially getting a rich owner who will spend to the cap ceiling every year, how about you enjoy what we can be instead of how you plan to kill yourselves.
TG reported that this guy has never spoken to Vanderbeek and that this rumor is baseless.

Either way, it would seriously SUCK to lose the team. The location, the arena, everything - it's a part of the club and the experience, even if you are hundreds of miles away and only watch on TV. It wouldn't be the same with the club situated in a different place.
