Winner of the 2004 Lady Byng Award and the 2003 and 2004 Joe Nieuwendyk award.

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Yeah, it really depends on your area, there are some where you absolutely need to know French and some where you will never, ever use it... I'll be in downtown which is very, very heavily English but obviously pretty bi-lingual at the same time... the first language used is usually English but if someone wants to speak French most can comply.

Buddy of mine and I went to Larry Robinson night at Bell Centre last year. We arrived 2 hours before the Devs/Canadiens game, so we figured we'd stop in at Harveys and get some burgers.

My friend is a francophone with okay English. I'm an anglophone with okay French.

I made my order in English, got my stuff and headed back to the table. My friend takes 5 minutes longer - I'm almost done and he's just starting. I asked what happened. He was fuming. "This is Quebec. The official language is French. I ordered in French and the order was completely wrong. The cashier apologized - she didn't understand French very well and was guessing at what I was ordering."

So, yeah, if you are in the downtown area, you are actually better off with English than French. (-:

BTW - I hope that you guys don't mind us Canadians taking over your message board. (-:

My team was joking the other day - I said I couldn't play next semester cause I'd be in Montreal. First they tell me, "Bring back some hockey skills, they'll teach you." :lol: I'm not that good, just starting.

Then they reconsider.

"Actually, just bring back some Canadians. They know what's up."

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I agree with you about downtown. Went to a bookstore there and, since it was my first time there, I spoke in French. They just looked at me funny like, look, my first language is English, your first language is obviously English... then he just spoke back in English.
