Before there were the Devils...


Recommended Posts

I saw the light in 1991 as a junior in college. Friends of mine were hockey fans and I went to my first game that year, a Whaler game in Hartford (I think it was before Ron Francis was traded). So I followed them for a couple of years.

When I moved back to NJ after I graduated (1993), I started rooting for NJ.

Don't berate me... I was a Broad Street Bullies fan.

Hey, I was young, what did I know? I just liked the violence.

Same here sometimes kids are just stupid and do not know any better.

But I always hated the Rangers so I must of know a little back in the day

I had no concept of which NHL teams were who before the Devils came to town. I rarely watched any hockey 'cept for the olympics and playing on the canal.

So it would be Team USA, and yeah, I would wear one of their jerseys still today. :thumbsup:

Neal Broten #9 ;) (not G#9 :wub: )


This is exactly right for me too--didn't know what hockey was until the '80 Olympics when I became a fan of the sport and then the Devils came to town so Red and Black ever since.

Buffalo Sabres, the French connection, King Kong Korab and the best defensemen of his era: Jim Schoenfeld.
