I really think they are delusional. I went out the night after with my Henrique Reebok Devils player shirt and all I got was stupid comments from Rangers fans. They claim that our fan base "clutches on to our 3 cups" when in facts its been years since we won anything. I constantly get the low attendance comments, the no fans comments, the marty is old comments, and the jagr will break down comments
Did you really think you were going to get smart comments?
I don't really see Devils fans hanging on to 1995, 2000, or 2003 at all. I have NEVER seen another organization, or their fans, in ANY league hang on to a championship the way the Rangers hang on to '94. It truly is a phenomenon all their own. The Jets' 1969 Super Bowl win was far more historic in the grand scheme, but I don't hear Jet fans or see the Jet organization constantly re-celebrating that one.
The Rag-faithful dummies will also tell you that they're better than the Devils...pretty funny, considering that 1) the Devils have now beaten them three times this season (twice in their own building), and 2) have scored the same number of goals (69) and given up 8 less (Rags 80, Devils 72 when phantom SO goals are eliminated). They do have an odd way of looking at things.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
