As much as I would like to believe this is the answer, I think it has a lot more to do with an attractive 22 year old brazilian girl in a Devils tee shirt smiling like an idiot :P

Hah well that and being in the right places at the right times.  But yeah that's definitely some fan experience.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Great to read. Kevin Clark is awesome, my friend and I have met up with him a few times before games (and for quite awhile before the Albany game in Atlantic City earlier this month). Really fun guy to talk to.

 

My friend lives a few blocks from the team's hotel in Philadelphia, so when we were walking to the subway to the game a couple weeks ago, we walked by and caught Rutuu, Schneider, Marty, Zubrus, Zajac, Gionta, Volchenkov, DeBoer, etc all stopping on the way out and signing. It was cool, and I imagine even more fun for a "true" road game like that one, where road team fans have to really go the distance to see the team. I imagine they all appreciate seeing that.  Great story man.

Glad you guys found it so interesting! If you all were interested I could post a few photos later.

@tl1a; yeah, Clarke was one of the nicest guys I've ever encountered. Hysterical, full of knowledge... Just a really great guy. My friend couldn't believe it when he heard that on the other end of the phone, without a doubt a story I'll always remember.

I think the fact tht there were so few of us Devils fans in Tampa made the players even more fan-friendly. It was a pretty incredible experience, and it's amazing how personable all of the players were.
Also, in case you all want to eat like a hockey player: 90% of the guys were carrying a banana and eating granola. Literally almost every single one of them. So, yeah :)

That was probably just the lunch Marty packed for them.

Really glad you had a great time meeting them. I've only had one experience meeting Devils players 12+ years ago, and none of them had any interest in saying much or chatting. A few avoided autographs, but I didn't blame them. I was one of 3 people full of dozens that were actual fans and not autograph hawkers. They really are the worst people ever.

 

That was a pretty damn big game in Tampa, so all of them could have had their headphones on and just walked right past everyone to the bus/arena/whatever focusing on the game at hand, and could you be that upset.  Again, that could have been Clowe's mentality. Instead, they stopped, made some awesome memories for a ton of people.

Nice story, where are the selfies to support this event. I want to see one with you and your girlfriend. I told you that before.

 

Why is she with you? I forgot your parents have money.

 

Did you snap a picture with Marty?

 

Enjoy

You know, a few months ago you personally attacked me, unwarranted, and I sent you a personal message, asking why you are who you are. I haven't replied to one of your comments in forever, and rarely do it as much as the rest of the forum.

Sometimes I wonder what it takes to make a man so bitter, and I must assume you've had a great tragedy in your life to turn you into something like this. I honestly feel really bad for you.

Also, as you probably forgot, you've made that same comment before: "your parents money". I replied then, telling you how a comment like this was incredibly disrespectful and completely uncalled for, as the economy destroyed my father's job, as someone who was employed by Chrysler. My girlfriend is with me because she's my best friend, but I don't need to explain that to a sad lonely man like yourself.

I'll post the photos later, because other people would probably enjoy them. I'm finally adding you to ignore, because a comment like yours- so out of the blue- truly shows that you add nothing to this forum. I'm sure you've heard that many times before.

Have a nice life.
