NJay,

have you had your graduation ceremony yet? I don't remember seeing anything on the board about it. Sorry if I missed it. But anyway, congratulations to you and any other graduates on the Board. Is there any one besides NJay?

And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

Thanx NJDev25. Yeah I graduated HS on June 7th. That night I was fully expecting the Devs to win the Stanley Cup but oh well, I had to wait 2 more nights.

It was a really nice graduation, it was a mass, than the graduation part in our St. Joes church. Now I've been busy celebrating!! :burn:

With some of this: :puke:

Thanks again! Woohoo!

That's why I missed it. Game 6 :puke:

Well, that was a good night to graduate and not have to watch the game!

Way to go, guy!

My graduation was actually at 10am and ended after noon so I unfortunately watched that game.

During Game 5 was when I was at my awards ceremony but I snuck in a pocket radio so atleast I was able to listen to parts of the game and then I was home for the entire 3rd period.

Devs pissed me off on my graduation night but it was all better within 2 days of that. :lol:

Thanks again.

Often I think of the beautiful town
That is seated by the sea;
Often in thought go up and down
The pleasant streets of that dear old town,
And my youth comes back to me.
And a verse of a Lapland song
Is haunting my memory still:
"A boy's will is the wind's will,
And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)
