I am a New Jersey Devils fan.

And I support Steve Bernier.

It is my hope that any other Devils fans who come across this post will be able to say those same two sentences with me.

I've had time to think. I've read the reports, how his teammates, his coach, and his GM told him they didn't blame him. I've heard his explanation that answered my incredulous initial question when I saw his hit on LA's Rob Scuderi in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals: "What was he thinking?!"

And I debated how I felt about that.

Then I read how Bernier felt about the fan support on returning to Newark, and I realized something vitally important that I would encourage all Devils fans to remember.

We're too good not to forgive him.
