Expect Brodeur to start against the Canes

51 posts in this topic

Sure we have a snow storm coming, but the sky is parting and the sun is shining over Newark:

 


Expect Martin Brodeur (back) to participate in at least part of the Devils' practice later this morning.


 


BREAKING: #Brodeur confirms he will start tomorrow night against #Carolina.

Don't expect him to PLAY any time soon -- but expect him to practice  start in at the Canes - he'll be hurling some great Quebecois insults form the bench - just you wait!  :uni:

Not even that...expect him to "participate" (exact quote) in the practice.

 

He may be out there building a fort out of ice shavings or something, for all we know.

hahahah guys guys check out what i made. that's great marty, kinda busy here.

 

 

if there is one thing i know about the devils, it's that if a person is day to day, we are fvcked for a month, and if brodeur is going to try out for practice, he's good to go and can even start tomorrow night.

Great news. I would think if he starts practicing today, we're targeting the Florida game Saturday for the return.

Probably an accurate timetable...with someone his age though I still worry about a re-tweak or a setback. That's why I think they've babied him so much to this point. Marty of 10 or even 6-7 years ago probably misses 3-4 games max

Yeah they've been overly cautious, no doubt, and rightfully so. But there's always a chance of a setback with someone Marty's age, especially with the back. We just have to hope for the best.

He had a full practice and said he's not playing tomorrow. I'm guessing Saturday sounds pretty likely.

He said he had a pinched nerve that was causing him to lose feeling in his neck and arm. Pretty sure Msweet said that and someone else scoffed at his source haha

Does Clarkson stumble over it?

funny thing is, lately - moose hasn't been the problem.

 

.926 save% in his last four, no more than two goals allowed in those games.  Crazy to ask any more than that from a 39-year-old who wasn't expected to play nearly as often as he has.

 

Great that Brodeur may be coming back, but sadly, I'm now viewing this season and next as his farewell tour, where we'll get some memorable games and runs, coupled with some injuries and some tough moments too.  I know he keeps himself in phenomenal shape, no way he could have played for so damned long and for so many games if he didn't, but even the Brodeurs can outrun time for only so long.  Hopefully, he finds a way to win 36 games or more before his deal's up (getting to 700), looks reasonably good doing it, keeps the sad moments to a minimum, then calls it quits.  Then Ranger fans can point out that of the 700 or so wins, 300 of them came by shootout, and in the other 400, Brodeur only faced 12 shots or less per game, because of da trap.

We need Marty's puck handling abilities back. That's one intangible Moose cannot give us. It helps out the defense tremendously.

Also no ridiculous hopeless flopping in shootouts

I know Hedberg looks awful in the shootout, but he's strangely one of the most successful goalies in them.  Maybe his awful technique is such a surprise that shooters choke. :lol:

Msweet had the numbness part, Chico had the pinched nerve part.

From what I remember Chico said it was like a rotator cuff or something, of all the things to go to Chico for, medical advice would probably be the last
