Jon Morris


Sergei Starikov

I remember going to a game during his brief stint in '89-'90 when he came with Slava. He was friggin' beat ass red in the face huffing and puffing he was so out of shape.


Neil Brady

RE: Starikov, supposedly he was so happy to be coming to America he partied his ass off for several weeks before he arrived. And yeah, because of that he was horribly out of shape.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Starikov plays in some Alumni games. He is a very nice guy, probably goes about 250-275 lbs now and tells some great stories.

i don't remember the goals, but i remember him being on the team. i feel like he got replaced by steve guolla.


The following year? Guolla played the entire 2001-2002 season with Albany and played 12 games with the Devils in 2003. Gardiner only played 7 games with the Devils in 2001-2002 and the rest in Albany. I guess he was just a call-up when someone got hurt.

Deron Quint, I think he had a quicker appearance to dissapearance than Esa Tikkanen.

Vlastimil Kroupa's pretty random too but he was supposed to be a big deal at one point :lol:

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Good ol #7...Vlastimil. The Devils coughed up a 3rd rounder for him, thinking they were getting a steal (he was a former 2nd-rounder of the Sharks, and Lou thought playing for the Devils could smooth out his rough edges). He played all of two games with the Devils...apparently Lemaire was so horrified by what he saw that he wanted nothing more to do with him. I know he made the AHL All-Star team after being demoted, but he never saw NHL action again.

I just saw that the guy's still playing BTW...for Litvinov CHP HC (Czech). He been playing in the Czech leagues for about 10 years. Former NHLers Robert Reichel and Jiri Slegr are two of his teammates.

I don't consider Conacher obscure at all. Heck, I think he was the first guy to play for the three area teams. He battled hard.

Meh. I guess my favorable opinion comes from when he was in the lineup, the team won...for some reason at it seemed he didn't really contribute much on the ice.

He couldn't possibly have been as out of shape as the illustrious Vladimir Krutov, who basically came to Vancouver and ate nothing but Big Macs. He was so good when he played for the Red Army and Soviet national teams, but he was a big fat mess a couple years later after he tasted way too much freedom fries.

Scored one of the prettiest, most exciting goals in Devils' history against the Kings.



Always loved his feistiness.

I don't know if I'd call that a "pretty" goal. More like crazy. Noteworthy though, I've seen that clip before, but never knew who it was.
