My thoughts exactly. Gonna be a fun night

Jersey Man 12-15-2011 11:16 PM

Thank you Scott


Wingman77 12-15-2011 11:17 PM

Nice job CJ

Can't wait for tomorrow night

Thanks for everything Scotty

I'll always remember your goal scoring, but certainly won't forget your capability to go bat**** to stick up for your teamates at any given moment


Devilsfan92 12-15-2011 11:17 PM

Mike Mottau will always be #27 in my heart!

LGD!

Mr.Krinkle 12-15-2011 11:17 PM

Still pissed we couldn't drag that slug Rob over here, instead we had to let him walk.

All that aside, should be a great night tomorrow.

LGD.

Rella17 12-15-2011 11:19 PM

was always one who resented his choice to leave but this is your night Scotty, you deserve it

lgd

Timzey 12-15-2011 11:25 PM

Lets Go Devils!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

End to end goal vs. red wings in '95 finals still gives me chills. Much love for the high end neids.

nice job CJ..... how did you get the last pic of the banners?!?!? is that a photoshop. looks. awesome. can't wait to see it in real life!

Chessarmy 12-15-2011 11:26 PM

I'm baffled by the decision to start Hedberg, how is Marty supposed to find his consistency if he's sitting on the bench?

I don't want to hear the back to back argument, he could play both games.

glenwo2 12-15-2011 11:33 PM

I am SOOOOO over Nieds leaving.

I think it makes it easier since he's no longer an ACTIVE player in the NHL.


EDIT : And what the hell is up with Hedberg starting?

It's Niedermayer night AND IT'S AGAINST THE DALLAS STARS!!


We won a cup against them WITH Nieds and Marty(in goal). Don't understand Deboer's rationale here.

Maybe he feels his players will play harder if they didn't have Marty to fall back on?

He could play 82 games this year. But the result would be pretty bad. Moose has earned starts and Marty probably had the decision of either night and he wanted the Mtl start instead.

I will be there tonight/tomorrow!!!! I hope to see some board regulars there. Dunno where to find anyone though

HeliDevil 12-15-2011 11:51 PM

let's do this. loved niedermayer when he was here. pretty pissed when he left but that was a long time ago, and it's hard to hold a grudge against a player who helped bring 3 stanley cups to new jersey.

really pumped to see zajac back. glad moose will be starting because marty usually owns montreal. lets go devils!

it's a long season, why wear him down making him play back to backs? there's no point, and nieds night is not a good enough excuse to let him play both.

i wouldn't be surprised if marty is the one who decided which game he wanted to play in.

hockeyr5 12-15-2011 11:54 PM

I pray there is a stream for the ceremony

HeliDevil 12-15-2011 11:59 PM

i wonder if there will be a way for us out of towners to watch the ceremony. anybody know if it will be broadcast on center ice?

Capt Brycey Poo 12-16-2011 12:49 AM

Probably the best d-man of modern NHL, tough competition with Lids, but Nieds has achieved more. LGD.

MJB Devils23* 12-16-2011 12:52 AM

Don't lose on Niedermayer night!

Bleedred 12-16-2011 12:53 AM

I don't wanna use this thread as a tool to bash him, but I'm more upset with him over the 2000 holdout then we he left here in 05. The 98 holdout too, but the big one in 2000 when he, and Arnott held out on contracts the first month, and a half of the season pissed me off. Of course when they were finally re signed I embraced them both, and got over it.

I actually wanted to see him return in 2009. Rob signed here, and I figured it would be a great time to return since Lou loved signing old Devils down the road again. I was bummed when he didn't. I think his cap hit was more then we could afford, or we just didn't wanna give him the money Anaheim offered him for one more year.

Love him or hate him this is his night.

I don't mind Marty, and Moose alternating, but Marty said on opening night in regards to the question of this being his last season that if they want him as more than a backup that will affect his decision to stay or not. While I wouldn't say he's a backup he definitely isn't a guy they use as much as they used to. He's played 70 games more than once. A handful of seasons actually. Moose is a good Goaltender, and sadly one of them will not be here next year. If Marty retired Moose re signs, if Marty stays Moose is let go, and another guy from Albany out of the many they have down there now gets a spot.

Should be a good one, LGD!!!

Great job on the gdt CJ!

JerseyGuy276 12-16-2011 01:25 AM

Lets go Devils!!! Win for scotty!

Darius Dangleaitis 12-16-2011 01:37 AM

Obviously we're all pissed he left, but it's quite obvious he was one of the best to ever play the game and will be forever remembered as a Devil.
