I can't believe it's been five years. It's even weirder for me to think that I've been on here for four of those years. I know when I first came here I had only been following the Devils for about a year so I wasn't exactly the most knowledgeable fan, but NJDevs was one of the things that helped me learn a lot about the team and hockey as a whole. It's been a great outlet to talk with passionate and intelligent hockey fans. Not just that either because this board has also allowed me to become close friends with a couple posters. A big thanks to DM and everyone else who has contributed to this site! :clap: Congrats on five years!

Wow, 5 yrs. I too log on here first thing, everytime I get on the computer. It is the first place for Devils news. The community here has info & news first. (pretty much because most of us have no life :-) ).
Keep rockin' Brad. Congrats.
And I do remember those posts that the Devils would never win with Mogilny, but don't remember who it was.

Congrats! :clap: I've been a Devils fan for years, but that only included watching games and pulling for them. I never really kept up with the draft, trades, etc. Since I have joined this board I have learned so much from so many cool people and that knowledge has made the sport and the team that I have always loved even that much more enjoyable to watch. Thanks for all you do DM and keep up the good work :koolaid:

I can't believe it has been 5 years either.... wow!

I do remember how desperate we were to leave that pit of despair called NJO....

And I also remember how difficult it was to even run a baor dback then.... the power of PHP, the Internet and a bunch of truly great posters and we have one of the best boards of any kind on the net.

Congrats to eveyone here.

Thanks DM. PK and Crasher got me here. I was hanging around the old devilsnews for a while and PK gave me a swift kick and told me to get my ass over here. Good thing I listened.

5 Years!!! :hail: Holy CRAP!!

DM as I have said Many times you took my dream and truly made it heaven for thise of us who endured the nightmares of NJO ( i posted there for like 6 years Scarey as it might seem!!)... the breakdowns of Netwrok 54 and that other site that we were on for about 5 minuted before it went bankrupt!!!

In all honesty i need to thank the guys over at the Flyer Fan Forum for convincing me to start my own board ( of course they only did it to get me of their board!!!), I hated NJO so much i had almost stopped posting there and was only posting at the flyer board!!! I realized I had to do something whne i got an email from olp congratulating me on the birth of my daughter, which i announced at the philly board NOT NJO.....

While I donot post as much as i did int he old days this place is ny home on the internet!! I consider many of you to be my family and I;m happy to see some of the posters coming back again like M.....

I just wish Madddog, Stardew, olp & Joe B would post more, they were a few of the origianls that made the jump th Net54 w/ me...

Anyway DM thanks again... And please ask for help whenever you need it becuase if you burnout this place might disappear and that would be tragic!!!

LONG LIVE NJdevs!!!



yup, http://www.network54.com/Forum/56793/


Dm maybe you can post a link to the old board somewhere on here??

Thanks for a bit of relief during many long days and nights. I began with that NJonline board as well. What a relief when I heard about the 54 site. Time flies................

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

There was no sign up for the NJO. I didn't post much on there but read a lot of it. Before center ice (god I love CI) message boards were the only thing I really had to see how the devils were playing. Every year since I have become more fanatical.

Amazing when you think of it- we owe what we have here mostly to some frekish charachter named Isalander Sammy.


5 years here, time in 54, plus NJO- this counts as a long term relationship in my book.
