    Questionable Merch

    Haha while something I personally would not buy, I don't think it is bad. I think all teams have some sort of Disney co-licensed products out there. Plus I have seen a lot worse from the fan creation T-shirt designs I see all the time for sale in the FB groups.

    Yeah the rest of the series was indeed a goaltending duel. Nice to see Thorne and Clement would hold us in some decent regard given how they, especially Thorne, were pseudo-cheerleaders for Colorado in the following SCF. That schmuck.

    I think Ftorek was the one who put them together in 98-99 season, but they didn't really start getting it going until the 99-00 season. Also, many people forgot Patty was a holdout early on in the 99-00 season and missed about 5-8 games.

    I could have sworn the onslaught started about 10 minutes into the first lol. Well it has been 18 years (damn!). And yeah Belfour had a rough game. He was much better in the other 5 games. That 2001-02 year was such a weird year. It definitely felt like the team was just tired after playing back to back seasons where they reached the SCF in both.

    Agreed with it being underrated. For some reason I still hear about the other big lines that were contemporary to them; the Hejduk-Sakic-Tanguay line and the Naslund-Morrison-Bertuzzi line. I think the A-Line was better than either of those lines overall (especially the Morrison line in Vancouver). I think they just didn't have the "sexy" players like the other 2 had.

    I also must say that I feel bad for anyone who either wasn't a fan of the team yet or wasn't born/old enough to see the A-Line play. While we have had some good lines since (EGG, ZZPops and Parise-Henrique-Kovy lines come to mind), the A-Line was truly the best line we have ever had. In the 2000-01 season you would expect the team to score at least 4 goals a game with the A-Line scoring at least 2 of them. They were THAT good.

    lol yeah I had to go to class after that too. I was basically running on adrenaline for that day and when I got home from school I just crashed. Also, my dad and I along with a few friends of his tailgated since about 2PM so it was a pretty long day lol. I also remember by the end of the 1st OT the arena running out of food. All they had left was coffee and water by that point.

    I remember in the first period it felt like we were jumping out of our seats every 5 minutes to celebrate a goal. I was with my dad at the game (he was with me for all of them) and that was probably the most excited I have ever seen him at a game. I think the Stars and even Thorne and Clement were surprised about not only how good we were, but how we were doing it. The A-Line just dismantled them in that game and even Clement sounded like he was going to pass out during the replay of the one where Elias did a no look-pass behind him while faking Belfour that was going to go around behind the net and Sykora scoring.

    Haha I remember that too. Any sort of scramble near Belfour or save by him was met with a huge roar from the crowd. Everyone was ready to explode and you could cut the tension in the air with a knife that evening. By the time 3rd OT started, I do remember the crowd sort of getting a little tired by that point. I just remember that I wanted it to be over by then. That's why when Modano scored, while I was a little bit pissed I would be lying if I wasn't slightly relieved to finally go home. I think by that time it was nearly 1AM.

    I have been to a bunch of SCF games over the years. The ones I have attended were: 1995: Game 4 2000: Games 1 and 5 2001: Games 4 and 6 2003: Game 7 2012: None I was 11 in 1995, 16 in 2000, 17 in 2001 and 19 in 2003. Still have very fond memories of all of them except for game 6 in 2001. That one was easily the worst of the bunch. Game 5 in 2000 ended in disappointment, but it was fun being around the arena for a game that went into triple overtime. Everyone was waiting to bust out in celebration only for Modano to score halfway through the 3rd OT. It was like the air left the entire arena all at once. Game 1 in 2000 was really fun. To see them put up 7, chase Belfour out of his net (damn cough syrup lol) and even see Daneyko jump up and down like a little kid after scoring was something else. That game pretty much sealed it for me mentally that we were going to win that series and the cup.

    Someone on FB said "Terreri-sized." I think that is accurate lol.

    The outline of the state of NC in between the two flags is a nice touch.

    Santini signs three year deal

    Hall can do that with or without a letter. You really are blowing what a stupid letter sewn onto someone's chest means. Yes there were a ton of threads saying Taylor deserves the C. He probably does. But again, who really cares? The fans on here and on other various forms of social media most likely think about this much more than the team does.

    Santini signs three year deal

    So you are saying that if Hall had the C this past season instead of Greene, the Devils would have squeezed out a few more wins?

    Santini signs three year deal

    Haha even better. I just think talking about stripping one player of the C to give to another is scraping at the bottom of the barrel. It is something we really have no clue about because the role is largely behind the scenes. Not every captain is the team's best player. I mean the captain for the Capitals immediately before Ovi was Chris Clark.
