In normal time with Devils news flowing I would've probably said that this is calling on bad luck and bad juju and bla bla bla, but since the situation is painfully quite.

Same with '88 and '89, but hey, why ruin the narrative by including all of the examples. :cheers:

...Does that mean we should be expecting a Rangers cup win this season?

Strike = work stoppage / shortened season.

Maybe you're thinking of strike in a different sense but 2001 was not forgotten because it does not fall in to the pattern.

2001 will forever be remembered as "the Cup that got away"....

If we took the Avs out we would have 4 Lord Stanleys for the franchise, and be 4-1 in Finals appearances....

.800 winning vs our current .600 (3-2)

How long did the Red Wings go between Cups? It's great to have periods of prolonged relevence and/or success, but that doesn't mean those periods should EVER be taken for granted. You should know this: like me, you're a Met fan. I wish I'd appreciated the Mets of 1984-90 that much more, even though they only won two divison titles, and only got to the World Series once in that time. It's been pretty slim pickins since. Clearly NHL hockey is a bit different, in that making the playoffs is easier than in baseball, but my point is that the good days can end in a hurry, to anyone. I was 16 years old when the Mets won the World Series in 1986...I still can't believe we're coming up on 26 years since then.

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.
