  1. Hey all..... I don't know if everyone has seen this, but I've got a bunch of Devils stuff that I am giving away. Everything in the linked thread is free. https://www.njdevs.com/forums/index.php?/topic/136406-downsizing-some-stuff-for-sale-some-stuff-for-free/
  2. This is likely the end of the free stuff as I have finished unpacking and unlikely to find any more. This batch has a 2000 CD of "Songs, Sounds and Highlights", a keychain, a pin, a Devils puck, a 2000 Stanley Cup "official game puck", a plushie bear and a ceramic(I think) 2003 championship bear.
  3. I have listed a bunch of my rare Devils items up on eBay if anyone is interested: https://www.ebay.com/usr/don.whiting Prices are negotiable.
  4. More free stuff. Signed Chico postcard, 89-90 yearbook, 1993 picture of the Devils with team history, super-mini pennant, fuzzy dice, bumper sticker, Scott Stevens sew-on patch, Brodeur hologram card from Upper Deck and the Colin White card. The Colin White card looks signed, but I'm not sure if that is part of the print or not. That was from the day he brought the Cup to my native Nova Scotia and my brother and I got to meet him. And we ask him to sign a few things. So it could be an authentic autograph. Perhaps not.
  5. The mini-pennant and the mini-hockey player have been claimed. I found some more stuff, but don't have time to take a picture right now: - Devils bumper sticker - Postcard of Chico, autographed - Upper Deck Brodeur hologram card - Picture of the 1993 Devils with a team history on the back - Devils Yearbook (1989-90) - Scott Stevens sew-on patch (Joe Sakic patch as an example https://www.ebay.com/itm/1993-94-NHL-Seasons-Action-Player-Patches-17-Joe-Sakic-Quebec-Nordiques/254477729232?hash=item3b400dfdd0:g:YNQAAOSwSgFeGPIT)
  6. Updated Free Stuff..... the zamboni, sticks and mini-cups are gone. But much more has been found. 1) Two used water bottles (dishwasher cleaned since last use) 2) Roll of Devils wallpaper (frayed on one end due to damage, but the length shown is all good) 3) A puck in display case 4) Puck out of display case 5) Shot glass 6) Light-up horns 7) Brodeur mini-jersey 8 ) Ancient mouse with serial port cable 9) 1995 championship license plate 10) Christmas tree ornament 11) Devils sports tape 12) Devils flag (I have taken it to games, so it has gotten a little stained; you can try washing it) 13) 5 pair of Devils socks (I don't think any have ever been worn; they look pristine) 14) Mini pennant with old colours 15) Broken keychain (metal jersey with old colours) 16) Mini-figurine 17) I found one more mini Stanley Cup Pick any 3 items, PM me your mailing address and I'll send them off to you.
  7. Hey guys. I've moved from a house into a condo and am having to purge some of my stuff. Roller blades are gone, punching bag (heavy bag) gone, bean bag chair gone. Saddest item I parted with was my 2003 full-size Stanley Cup that I built out of a trash can and a bunch of cake moulds that I crazy-glued together. I will post items as I find them as I am still unpacking. The most meaningful items I will be keeping in my display case (pewter Stanley Cups, jersey signed by Larry Robinson, 1995 championship hat and shirt (never worn; tags still on)).
  8. I had a HUGE problem with him getting royalties from sports teams playing the song. Now I don't care. I was concerned with him taking the royalties money and buying girls in Cambodia. I have no such concerns now. The man is going to die in jail.
  9. Thanks Rowdy. Once I hit my goal weight, I inherited some money from a distant relative. Someone my mother was closer to than I was, but my mother for some reason was left out of the will. So I thought it fair to share my good fortune and offer her a trip to the Grand Canyon, somewhere she had always dreamed of going. So she was going from Halifax to Toronto and I was going Ottawa to Toronto and we were to meet at the gate before our flight to Phoenix. However, I didnt tell her that I had lost the weight (or that I had shaved my head, or that I replaced the glasses with contacts). My own mother didn't recognize me at all.
  10. I designed the jackets for the running team. https://www.facebook.com/running.down.dreams/photos/a.1514379198803394.1073741829.1513842965523684/1515986071976040/?type=1&theater It took decades of believing I wasn't good enough before realizing what all I could do.
  11. Takes one to know one? Moustic is as funny in person as on in the interweb series of tubes. PK: Actually, I am writing. As per the interview above, I've started my book. Seventy pages in thus far. Rather than being sanguine on a hockey forum or snarky on a politics forum, I'm being salubrious in e-book form.
  12. Heh. One of my before pictures is in my 2003 Cup T-shirt.
  13. Thanks DM, Scott.... I was featured on the local morning show: http://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=453553 As per the interview, I'm working on a podcast. My very first guest was a guy I met on the Flames board and he wore his Calgary jersey. I told my second guest that if she wore her Flyers jersey I was stopping the interview and getting my Devils jersey.
  14. I wasn't sure to put this in the "Introductions" forum or not, I've been gone for so long. My office is still covered in Devils paraphanalia and my wardrobe still consists of Devils gear. It's just different gear. I am co-captaining a running team that wil be doing a relay from Boston to the end of Cape Cod: http://www.runningdownourdreams.com/ Along with becoming a long distance runner, I've also become a VERY avid cyclist:
  15. Hrm. Only ones I HAVE met are Crasher, Rowdy and moustic. Who would I like to meet? Hrm. Probably Hasan.
  16. Heh. Moustic said before the game that he wanted Montreal to get one goal - just one - so he could get the experience of hearing a hockey-crazed Montreal crowd go wild. They got the one - and only one - goal he wanted. But he got two cheers since they celebrated the call-off goal too. Good game by the Devils, but lousy game by Montreal. No passion, no hitting... Little effort. Got pictures of Marty coming out for his first star. I hope that is his last game in Montreal... It would be a good note to go out on.
  17. NHL Preview: http://www.nhl.com/gamecenter/en/preview?id=2013020700 Well, the real big story is that I'm going to the game! I've got my jersey, my hat, my jacket, even my Devils socks on today. I'm hope Moustic didn't cancel his plans to go to the game; it would be cool to meet a Devils fan from the other side of the pond. Let's Go Devils!!!
  18. My expectation coming into this season was that I was totally and absolutely sure that we would finish dead last and yet not qualify for the first overall pick because we lost this year's pick. I was positive we were going to be the NHL laughing stock. So by my measure, we're actually doing quite well. Things could be worse. We could be Buffalo. No team can suffer the losses we have seen over the last 5 years. We have bled just far too much talent. And it's not an easy job to replace it. I said I would buy NHL Centre Ice as soon as the Devils have more wins than losses. I saved my money this year. Still checking the box scores and seeing how things are going, but am not letting my mood be dictated by how some guys I don't know personally put a rubber disc into netted cage. I'm still a Devils fan as I am sure Brylin18 is. And the "go cheer for another team" crap is not useful to the conversation; you should be able to voice frustration without being told to go away. All I want now is for the Devils to continue to not be in the bottom 5 of the league *and* win on January 14th when Moustic and I are in Montreal.
  19. Hey moutic! I'll be at the game too!! It will be the first game my brother (also a Devils fan) and I will see together live since the banner ceremony in 2003. You will have to come over an introduce yourself!

  22. This wasn't such a hard ending to the season as we've had in the past. 2001 was much harder since the expectations were there. This year, I had no idea whatsoever that I would still be watching hockey in June. I love this team and what it accomplished this spring. It was an enjoyable run. The unfortunate ending wasn't as heartbreaking as in the past as they far exceeded my expectations at the start of the season.
  23. I hope you are so right on that call....
  24. Don

    Congrats Slovakia!

    Thing is, for me, I JUST DON'T CARE. For the past number of years, I'd follow the World Championships because with the Devils out, I might as well cheer on Travis and the other guys in red and white. But this year, I don't even know who was on the team. One thing about this tournament is all the guys that don't play. Forget that the NHL playoffs are still going on... there are so many guys that have been eliminated that didn't want to go (ie Crosby). The only thing I heard about the tournament was people's head exploding over Team Canada leaving off Spezza even though he expressed interest in going.
  25. The deadline for sending notice was Friday, May 18th. They couldn't wait until after the playoffs. They have absolutely no fear of doing this. I know many, many people who proclaimed last time that they "would never go to another NHL game ever" ... all of whom have returned to going to the games. The league knows that even if they shut down for a year, the fans will forgive them.
