Modano won't be playing in Saturday's game, good break for Devils.
Devils could win this one against a tough team.

They played well last night, even though it wasn't a blow out. What's with Elias? Nieuwy finally scores, maybe this is the start of something for him, certainly would help trade.

"Bring Them On" sure George, your arrogant "my way or the highway" policies and remarks pissed the Iragi off more... 32 unnecessary US military deaths so far since G. W.'s remarks and dozens are wounded. It continues daily. Thanks Goerge. There are now 10-25 attacks against US soldiers daily.

Smart mouth, arrogant Bush, his kids are safe.

The BUCK never stops at BUSH if it's bad, he finds someone to take the blame for him, ie: Tenet's mea cupa.

Impeach G. W., the Iraq war was built on his lies...... lies........lies.

Do Not Re-Elect a Son of a Bush. Impeach him instead.

Modano's out, Dahlen's out (that's 2/3rds of the top line), Muller's out, and I'm not sure about Morrow's status for tomorrow.

But they are soooo deep - Guerin, Lehtinen, Turgeon, Young, Arnott - those are just their best scorers. And like the Devils, they now get scoring from all 3 D lines - Zubov, Boucher & Sydor.

Devils are going to have to play great D tomorrow. And hope Marty Turco's not at his best. One thing in NJ's favor is that they are probably pretty tired - physically and emotionally - after the games with Philly & Detroit (and they play in Carolina on Sunday). It's a tough road trip. Plus the emotional side of this game - moreso for the Dallas guys playing against Joe & Jamie. You just never know what could happen.

I am really, really nervous & excited about this game - can you tell????

GO DEVILS! Go Joe & Jamie!

And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

Elias says he doesn't wonder why the A-Line was broken up and his linemates were traded. "What good would it do for me?" he asked.

The Devs absolutely CANNOT come out flat in the 1st. Dallas has an amazing goal differential in the 1st period, it is KEY that NJ show up and come out hard in the 1st.

Coming out flat in the 1st period against any team is unacceptable but against Dallas the players should be penalized in their pay check if they do come out flat. They will be scared for sure, it's home and they are playing one of the best, but again they are catching them like St. Louis, and Pittsburgh hurting due to injuries.

Because it is an afternoon game and the stars are not very strong in these games, many stars fans are predicting a loss. I wonder if it will be a factor for Turco, because it seemed to be for Belfour.

The Stars are kinda weak in afternoon games only because they don't play very many.
I don't really think that most Stars fans are expecting a loss. We don't tend to ever expect the team to lose, even though it does *L*

As Brodeur was assessing his milestone, Joe Nieuwendyk, who lost the draw that led to Dupuis' goal, popped his head into the media scrum and asked, "What were you thinking on that second goal?''
"I was thinking my center was going to win the faceoff," Brodeur snapped back, laughing."


Yeah, I'm a Stars season ticket holder, what of it? *LOL*

I know what you mean! I want Jamie and Joe to do well and the Devils to pick a point they really need but the Stars will always been num. one, so I don't know. I will just see what will happen. But I wish they played a few more times this year.

Well, I'm torn because I love the Stars - BUT . . . I can never cheer against Joe so . . . I guess I'm not that torn. :o

Devils need it more than the Stars, anyway.

It really is too bad that the Devils don't come to Dallas this year, just for J & J's sakes, to get all that extra love & attention they deserve. :D

I think he'll get a good reception.

The fans on hand at the game are a lot more lenient than we tend to be here. Although that's not exactly right, cause I too would applaud his name in an announcement -- no matter what I think of the end of his tenure with us. But I'm generally like that for past Devils (there are only a handful that I would not applaud and would actually boo.)

Neither are the Devils usually :( They'll probably tick me off and have one of their 3-2 40 shots on goal losses :lol: Hope not! ;)

Speaking of Ex-Devils, I was watching the Rangers lose their game last night and in my mind the game went like this

And Bobby Holik gets down low

"cool!... oh yea hes a ranger"

Mike dunham makes the save

"good job...ohh right, ranger"

Malakov clears away the rebound

"goo... damnit"

Gilmour makes a nice pass


"come on! ohh, damnit Canadien"

Mckay is crashing the net

"thatta boy..damnit sigh"
