Hi all,

Well, have finally plucked up the courage to de-lurk after months of well...lurking.

I'm from rainy old England and became a Devils fan after they were the first NHL team I saw lose (Red Wings, 3-1, it was ugly) way back in 1999ish. I'm 18 adn confess to liking Stevens, Marty and Nieder best, not only 'cos they're the pillars of the team, the earth and the universe, but also 'cos they're cute (Stevens and cute int eh same sentance... oh dear) I'm a hockey bimbo... I'm sorry.

Nice to finally all the people i have agreed and disagreed with in the privacy of my study for the past year,

Cheers!

Bo

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.

Welcome to the board.

With us foreigners, I found this web page which should help the Americans understand our language:

(I'd recommend checking out "Bloody Hell" under the "B"s.)

Welcome aboard.

Now was that the game Pandolfo I think needed all those stitches after he got nailed into the boards in the corner and Ftorek took the bench and threw it on the ice?

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Are you in England now or just from England???? I'm curious cause if you're in England I'd like to know how many games or just how you are able to watch the Devils. I was in London during the 2000 ECF against the Flyers and was able to watch game 6 on SkySports, which was great even though the start time over there was 1 or 2 in the morning.
