Ahhhhh Sarge, my boy.

The memories will live on forever and you were truly a legend in NJ.

When one discusses players who are and are not warriors on the ice, your name will always rank up there at the top with the greatest warriors of all time.

Thank you my friend and may God bless.

You were and still are.....INCREDIBLE.

:clap: :evilcry:


Is this a serious post?

I'll admit that it'll be weird to see Sarge playing for another team, if he doesn't retire, and I appreciate his years of service to the team. He had his moments, and there will be a lot of good memories of him in Jersey.

But using 'incredible' and 'greatest warrior' to describe this guy is simply beyond belief.

The guy was serviceable, but there's no way his name and number are going up in the rafters of the rock. Just not gonna happen. The only point you could make for that was that he was on the Devils for a relatively long time. Besides that..

Much respect to Brylin, and thanks for many years of service. Serge was a devil when quite a few of us were still in diapers.

My wife just got a Brylin jersey last season, and i don't think this will keep her from wearing it.

Agreed. I have always like Sarge and what he has done for the team. His loyalty is to be honored and he was a great competitor but don't expect #18 to be hanging from the rafters in The Rock anytime soon.

I am at a loss for words. Timex was the only player to never question his role, do whatever was asked of him, never held out, always gave 125% and people here think incredible and great warrior are beyond belief? All I can say is that you either haven't watched him from the beginning of his career or cannot see the subtle points of the game. For his size he was beat on, dirty checked and NEVER once complained. He got right back up and kept on going. That is a warrior. He is not a player who would cry wah I have an ingrown toenail and I cannot play hence my nickname for him. Pffftttt!

I have always been a Timex fan. I will always be a Timex fan. I will pray that he stays with the Devils in some capacity. He has gone over and above what has been asked of him. Many of today's athletes are spoiled brats and single taskers. Timex was always a multi-tasker.

Timex, like my sig will always say, RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God, I just read that, and read your signature, I'm gonna really really miss him. I guess its true that you never appreciate something until you don't have it any more.
