Not many seem to be bandwagoners, either. From those I've talked to, they're pretty knowledgeable about things and seem to be genuine fans.
Really? I see nothing in Monmouth County. I live in Freehold and my in-laws are from Fair Haven and I spend a good bit of time in Red Bank and you might see one guy wearing a Devil shirt at a bar on any given winter night when the Devils are on the TV. When I lived in Long Branch for 2 years and went out to bars in the winter it seemed like anyone that cared about NHL games were Rangers fans. Completely opposite from Pittsburgh where it seems like 90% of the city is behind the team when they are going well.

I work in New Brunswick and you don't see anything around there. Mainly because it's college students and Hispanics I guess. I always just assumed the real following of Devils fans must be from Bergen, Essex, Passaic and Union counties although there are a lot of Rangers fans in that area as well. I figure as soon as you go south or west (Mercer) of Monmouth any NHL fans are Flyers fans.
