"Still, the three time stanley cup winner is looking forward to playing in saturday's global hockey legends game at prudential center, which will benefit relief efforts for superstorm sandy.

"There's some guys that i played with even before i came here on christian louboutin mens sandals that team,"He said. Brylin, 39, has been working in a special assignment role for the devils this season.That involves some scouting, trips to albany and to some of the albany devils road games, as well going on the ice at times to help out the coaches with the ahl players during practices.He also attends many of the devils' home game. "I try to go to as many games as can,"He said. Brylin is enjoying his new job, but isn't sure yet where it will lead or how far he wants to go with it. "It's a new thing for me and i'm trying to get a feel for it and see what's going to happen,"He said. Brylin, who played 13 seasons for the devils after being selected by them in the second round of the 1992 draft, somewhat reluctantly saw his playing career come to an end last summer after playing the last four seasons playing in the russia based khl.He played three seasons for the ska st.Petersburg before finishing up last season with novokuznetsk metallurg. Brlyin's family was with him in russia for the first three seasons, but remained citrec christian louboutin in new jersey last season. Brylin said"I felt like i wanted to play another year"But there right opportunity didn't come.In a way, he was a victim of the nhl owners' lockout because some nhl players took roster spots in the khl and some teams exhausted much of their budgets giving bigger contracts to nhl players, leaving less for others. Brylin doesn't want to portray himself as a lockout victim, though. "I don't want to put it that way,"Said. "I was open to any offers.I would have liked to play again if i had a good offer.At the same time, my family needed me here in new jersey. " Brylin has no complaints, though, about his playing career. "At the end of the day, i had a great run,"He said. "I remember being 17 years old and first time skating with professionals and looking at the guys who were 30 and i thought they were kind of old to me and i played until 38, so i did pretty good. " He finished his nhl career with 129 goals and 179 assists for manolo blahnik sale uk 308 points in 765 regular season games all with devils.He added 15 goals and 19 assists in 109 playoff games to help the devils win stanley cups in 1995, 2000 and 2003. "Obviously those are the highlights and those are the moments i'm going to remember the most,"He said. "There were a lot of good things and a lot of tough things that happened over that time, but it was so good at the end. " Brylin is particularly proud to be one of five players to be on all three of the devils' cup winning teams, joining martin brodeur, scott stevens, scott niedermayer and ken danekyo. "Just to be three times on the stanley cup is something unbelievable,"He said. "I never thought it would be possible for me.Being in the same group with those guys, those guys are hall of famers, it means a lot to me. " Brylin noted that he was just 21 when he christian louboutin mens loafers and the devils won their first cup in 1995. "So, i probably didn't realize completely what just happened,"He said. "But, looking back now it was really special to win the stanley cup when you're only 21 years old.I think it's unbelievable. " Particularly for a russian player.No russians had their name on the stanley cup before 1994. "In the early 90s still we didn't know much about the stanley cup and the nhl,"Brylin said. "It wasn't on tv and there wasn't much stuff in the papers.To me, it meant a lot and now obviously more and more. "
