i found this forum accidently but i guess i like what i see and read. that's why i'm here now.
i'm a devils-fan from vienna, austria and cheering for them since 1994 (that's when i started to follow the nhl). unfortunately (the guy from germany will agree) it's hard to watch games over here. the only possibility is pay-tv but they broadcast 3 nhl games a week.
it's hard being a devils fan over here. but as unpleasant as the cba-discussions are the better it is over here: lots of nhl-players spend their time playing in european leagues, especially the czech extraliga. that's what made it possible for me to meet my favourite player, patrik elias. he's playing for the "hc znojemsti orli" but i'm sure u all know that. as long as there is no nhl-season i can watch him right across the czech border, 60 miles away from vienna. that's fine
check out www.icehockey2005.com for informations on the world championship next year in vienna/innsbruck.
if anyone has a question or wants to tell me anything just go on and do it. i hope i'll have fun in here.
that's all for now
