Hello,

came here to add my spoon into the soup. Iīve been member for awhile, but I donīt participate in too many threads. My job and studies disturb more important aspects of life...like posting nonsense on message boards.

Thank you and apologies.

Cheers, mate.

Well, at least now we have internet providing gamecasts, news and message boards. Itīs not that far behind, if you didnīt have sky channels, when crappy magazines like Pro hockey and text pages of tv were the only sources of information from NHL.

Liverpool FC supporters never walk alone, but thatīs not the case when supporting the Devs in Europe...

Odd intro thread, but I've seen odder (that word sound weird, or is it just me?). Odder...otter...hmph.

Anyway, back on topic. Welcome, I guess, well kinda welcome, or welcome back? Weird to say stuff like that. Stick around for a little more and post a little more.. or just say that everything do is.. erm.. 'nonsense'.

So, if that was the case and it was basically a message saying that we have no life.. cheers! If not... welcome!

What made you become a Devils fan... (you ARE a Devils fan, right?)

Ummm...My introduction was supposed to be taken with a good grain of salt. I was trying to use self-irony. Or at least I think so.

It was back in 1994 when I became familiar with the Devils. Iīve always liked this teamīs ideology of putting team ahead of individual goals and doing whatever it takes to win and achieve teamīs goal. I donīt know how to put it better. But I think you guys know what I mean. And yet this team has been blessed with so many great individuals as Marty, Stevens, Patty, Raffy, Muller, Burke, Johnny Mac and so on.

In my school it wasnīt very popular to root for the Devs. It shouldīve been the Wings, Pens or the Mighty Ducks for some reason. In the early 90īs NHL was kind of new thing in Finland. People generally knew very little about it and favourite teams were mostly those with superstars or some Finn like Selänne or Koivu playing there. It was only me and a friend of mine who rooted for the Devs in my neighbourhood. Itīs kinda weird coincidence that my friendīs twin brother roots for Rangers and they pretty much disagree on everything else too.

Long live the trap and Fatso guarding our net :koolaid:
