Hello to you all.

Longtime Devils fan here. Just came across this forum doing a search and thought I'd join. Been looking for a place to hang out and talk Devils hockey. Not many folks share my interest around here.

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

Well around '96 we got an ECHL team (Louisiana Icegators). Good team set lots of ECHL attendance records etc. etc..

Well our fairweather fan city ended up losing the team but the hockey bug bit me then. I started watching the game closer and playing in an local league which I still do. The first NHL player that I enjoyed watching was Scott Stevens. And once I started following the Devils that was that.

Welcome! I actually have a friend from Baton Rouge who's a big Devils fan too.

That's pretty cool! I'm going to Baton Rouge tonight to play a Christmas party.

I'll throw up a few pics of my jerseys a little later.
