Category Archives: Summing Up The Season
How do I even begin? This season has been unbelievable. This team has far exceeded my expectations for the year. Individual players have blown me away with their displays of talent. Coach Pete Deboer and the rest of the coaching staff have really out done themselves, taking a group of guys who seemed lost and unable to perform as a unit a little over a year ago, and turning them into a true TEAM. Lou, brilliant as always, seems to have collected all the right players, with all the right talents and attitudes to make the system WORK.
The 2011-2012 New Jersey Devils season will be one I will never forget. From a fan’s perspective, I watched my beloved Devils defeat two of our biggest rivals (Flyers, Rangers) and come within two wins of a 4th Stanley Cup. Off the ice, I also got my first taste of the business side of sports working and writing as a Devils Army General. It was a great experience for me to interact with other fans who are just as passionate about the team as I am. This is something I definitely want to continue doing for future seasons.
