edit: but anyway, good luck tonight, lol. should be a good game
Actually, no, because Devils fans like to ignore the "history" of their "franchise" that includes KC and Colorado. Over the course of the "franchise", the Devils/Rockies/Scouts are actually still on the losing end of things:
W 1174 L 1246 T 328 OTL 56
W 2528 L 2460 T 808 OTL 87
Can't conveniently forget the bad parts of your team's legacy...
You can certainly make the argument, and rightly so, that the Devils have been better over the past 20 years.
