It's amazing how players equate a team that hasn't won a cup in almost 40 years as a perennial cup contender.

NBCSports too, although we know why.

In fairness, they've been in the mix for many of those years, and have reached six SC Finals in that time to boot.  It's not like they're constantly non-factors...outside of a 5-year dry spell from 1989-94, they've only missed the playoffs in two other seasons since the '75 Cup win.

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.

We're almost as similar and we don't have the sh!tty fans. Yet we're never considered contenders.

Yes, the Devs are quite often considered contenders.. I hesitate with the "we" since we are not players.

Ask the players if they consider the fans part of the team. Almost to a man, they'll say yes.

To the media and fans they will. Not to eachother.   Not to get off topic which I already did, but it is pompous to refer to your team as "us" and "we", etc.

Why do you feel the need for fans to distance themselves from their team? The fanbase who supports the team year in year out in every way, also financially, has certainly earned the right to consider themselves "part of the team".. Why you would even bring something like this up is beyond me. Players change teams every few months sometimes, fans are usually loyal their whole life..
