I saw this posted on another forum. Did anyone get it?

Just wanted to let everyone know there is a new 160 page full color book called "Ice On Fire" out. It's about the Devils 2003 season. I picked it up at Borders in Watchung on Rt. 22. It's pretty nice and goes for $20. Makes a nice addition to the coffee table.

Ice on Fire? Didn't the tagline of the NJDevs website after the 2000 cup read Fire on Ice?

I didn't see it in the Borders I went to :P I suppose I'll wait till the first.

I'm shocked there is a book already; geez someone must have been confident in our chances :lol: I know the tape/DVD is also gonna be done July 1 but that's different they have all the footage they need either way.

Who wrote it BTW anyone know?

"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

I forget who wrote it, it's sitting in my car. It looks like it was put together quick...mostly pictures.

twisted elegance, the tagline was Ice on Fire on the website if I remember right.

Is it like the one the Stars had in '99 that was actually just a compilation of playoff articles from the Dallas Morning News along with the color photos, on slick paper?

From the way you describe the Dallas one, yes. They have a game of the month. Profiles of players, and then recaps of all the playoff games. There's tons of pics.

That sounds even better. The Stars didn't have a "game of the month" or player profiles.

Very cool.

What did they have in there then, just the playoffs? This was 150 or so pages, how big was the Dallas one?

Here is the lowdown:

It IS called "Fire on Ice" for $19.95. The subtitle is "The New Jersey Devils' Road to the 2003 Stanley Cup Championship". It's a yearbook type magazine. The cover picture is the guys mobbing Marty at the end of game 7. Sports Publishing LLC published it. The photos and articles are by the AP.

I called the Barnes & Noble in Clifton. They put copies on hold for me. They will hold them for 3 days. If you call, please make sure you say it's for the Devils. There are a few books by the same title, including a Lindros book. I doubt you want to end up with that one.

In the book, each month of the regular season has a player profile & game of the month. They have profiles for Brodeur, Stevens, Daneyko, Pandolfo, Brylin, & Gomez. Then the playoff portion of the book begins.

There are just under 100 pictures including front & back covers. Some of them are spreads. The articles were written by various reporters such as Tom Canavan, Joseph White, Ira Podell, Rob Maaddi, Alan Robinson, John Wawrow, & Mel Reisner.

Wow how do I not have one of those!?! I have just about everything from 99 cup win and all the things they gave the Season ticket holders but I don't have that book. I need to check ebay for that one and the NJ one sounds awesome. I will have to put that on my list of things to get along with the video.

sammyk -

The Stars version wasn't as big - more like 50-75 pages, playoffs only.


goobergirl -

I just got my copy last Fall from Amazon - took 3 months to get it. :huh: Try ebay first.
