Just watching the Yotes having a banner raising and wondering if the Devils will have one. I've heard that they usually do not unless it's a retirement or Stanley Cup.

Because it's the stinkin Coyotes...they're looking for any little morsel they can find to celebrate. Leave that stuff to the 2nd tier franchises who retire Ray Bourques number after playing barely over a season with them, and those other guys who retire Adam Graves for being "pretty good"

Adam Graves was part of the greatest group of human beings that ever gathered together for a few months and obtained the greatest achievement in the history of the universe. Sam Rosen said so.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

From what i heard, Devils reps have been telling people that there will be some sort of ceremony regarding the ECC. Not sure if that means a banner raising/unveiling or just playing a video and spotlighting an already unveiled banner, but from what I know, there will be something

In the past, I believe the banner is prehung... but they make acknowledgement of the feat in the pre-game video.
But no Cup, no big celebration for losing in the finals.

Now watch them make a big deal :)

That would be totally cool with me. I know the Yotes made a big deal because it's their first division win.

By the way that 94 New York Oilers team is the pinnacle of greatness! Ask Al Trautwig.

A few months? They win the Cup every week depending on what channel you watch.

I heard it's up also, but they are now using graphics on the banner, and this one has the picture of Henrique putting in the winner with 5 rags sprawled all over the ice !!!!

i'm sure they will have a video showing the path to the championship capped with henrique it's over. i also hope that is the intro to every game so the rags go insane before each game they play here.

People need to realize that teams like Phoenix and Florida raise division banners because they never win anything. A division title is a huge deal for those teams. When the Devils made it to the Wales Conference Finals back in '88, a Patrick Division Playoff Champions banner WAS raised on opening night the next season because it was the first real accomplishment by the organization. But I'm happy to say that standards are much higher now, obviously.

Devils are an elite club and to have ceremonies for banners other than Stanley cup or retirement banners would make us look bush league.

Was Daneyko a Hall Of Famer or an all-time great? Daneyko was a terrific lunch-pail guy and a fan favorite and was a Devil forever, which endeared him to many. And as we all know, had some demons as well, which in a way made him "one of us".

Adam Graves deserved to have his number retired...he was a very good player for the Rangers who had some terrific seasons, was a great representative for them, and did a lot of charity work...for Graves, it was a little bit of everything, and I can respect that. He meant a lot to the Rangers, and still does. He really is everything you could want in a player...a hard worker who got the absolute most out of his ability, and all-around great guy who genuinely is trying to make the world a better place in his own way. I hate just about everything about the Rangers, but I respect Graves.

The Rangers didn't go wrong with that one, but the excuses they seem to find to keep reliving '94 really kills their credibility, as far as these things go. I honestly don't remember...did the Rangers celebrate all of Graves' contributions on and off the ice, or was it another indirect celebraion of 1994?

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?

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 don't remember that specific ceremony but it's a pretty safe bet that the Cup was there and Messier cried.

You can't compare Graves to Daneyko. Danekyo spent his entire career with the Devils, and was the "original" Devil. A better comparison would be Sergei Brylin or Claude Lemieux.

The only sure thing jersey retirements going forward are Marty, and Elias if he finishes out his career with the Devils. It only happens for Kovalchuk if he wins a Cup and plays for the team for another ten years at a high level.

The only comparison I was making is that different players can mean different things to different franchises, and those who don't follow the "questionable" player hard might not understand how a Daneyko or a Graves gets his number retired. Outsiders probably who don't know much about Daneyko would probably wonder why the Devils retired his number. Same with Graves, as we have fans here who question it. Just like Daneyko meant a lot to the Devils in his own way, Graves is the same thing for the Rangers. We know what Daneyko meant to the Devils, and I don't think there's a Devils fan alive who feels like Dan-o wasn't deserving of his honor.
