So out of at least 50 years of broadcasters calling hockey games that's one of the top hockey calls in history? You know that is 100% subjective and no ones list will be the same or even close as their bias will always get in the way. You are completely reaching there and I already stated it's a great call but doesn't need to be brought up all the time, especially when the rags are one game away from the finals and could possibly win the cup this year. Then we can brag all we want about 2012 but they will have a cup while we haven't won one in 11 years.
As mentioned earlier, I think a lot of this has to do with age and/or when people started following the devils. I was at the cup winning games in 1995 and 2003 and remember 2000 very well and those moments will surpass 2012 every time for me. I guess those who were either too young or didn't follow the team then right now only have 2012 to remember.
Yeah, i'd say its up there. Just as i said about the SM goal in 94.
just the fact that it "embarrasses" you when other Devils fans openly enjoy our history just because the Rangers are a game out shows your insecurity about this team or your fandom. Its a sport, teams miss playoffs, others win. The Rangers happening was inevitable. It in no way effects your life at all to have someone else bring up the past of OUR team and appreciate it.
i just don't understand how you projecting on other fans provides any sort of validation.
and you can talk about age all you want but i was brought up in a devils family. I'm 23 and I can remember going to games all my life. I remember making cardboard Stanley cups and screaming like a mini madman. I remember crying in 2001 when the Devils lost. If its just a pissing contest about whos been a fan longer then you should be encouraging reminiscing even MORE about the past.
