Honestly I'd prefer Schneider be given the nod...  
For his play, and as a statement for our future and commitment to him.

No, but let's be honest...

Well I just saw on TG that Marty had a new mask made for the game, so it looks like he automatically assumes he is playing. Which is complete bullsh!t.

i will gladly let marty have that game if cory gets the two before and after it.

That doesn't mean anything. Backups in the WC like Biron, Johnson and Gustavsson had masks made but didn't play.

I don't think he assumes anything. But why not have a mask prepared just in case? 

 

I got no issue with Brodeur getting that game. I echo Sundstrom's thoughts about Cory getting the two before and the games after being great.

DeBoer said he's going day to day with goaltending plan, so no scheduled Saturday for Sunday at Yankee Stadium yet.


 



DeBoer admitted sentimentality might influence decision on starter for Sunday, but said most important thing is "for us to win games."



 


He didn't rule out NOT starting Marty which is pretty telling, though I still expect him to play.

I would bet every last thing I own Marty starts. Talbot has a better shot at starting for them than Schneider does for us.

While I'd like to see us commit 100% to Schneider, Marty has played the Rags well this year. If you're gonna give him a game, that's not a bad time to do it.

A month ago I would have bet money on Talbot starting...but now that Lundqvist has returned from the alien planet he was on, he's about a sure bet to get the game too.

Cory shut them out early in the season as well.

Agreed and that includes Cory pitching back-to-back 35 save shutouts (both shootout losses, of course)

Why would that be bull? It was pretty much common knowledge that he'd be playing that game when it was first announced.

...I want Marty to start.

 

He IS the new jersey devils.  He's everything this organization strives to be and represent.  He deserves this game.

 

Cory's got a decade's worth of time to play an outdoor game (whether with the Devils or a different team).

I'm not bashing Cory at all, just saying if you're gonna give Marty a game, the Rags might be the best team for him to play, based on past returns this year.

What? The rags are a much better team right now, way better than when we last played them.  The best games to play marty are games in which we have a good shot at scoring more. Teams with weak defense and or goal tending. The rangers are getting good goal tending and scoring right now. Marty in net could spell disaster.

Wait? It's better for a goalie to play a game in which his team is more likely to score? I had no idea.

 

Marty has played well against the Rags. Maybe he gets up more for those games, maybe he knows their tendencies better, but some of his best games this year have been Rags games. Throw in the fact that the ice will probably be sloppy, which should minimize everyone's skill, and this isn't a bad game to play him.

Considering marty is letting up at least 1 soft bllsh!t goal a game, yea its important for him to play against weaker competition at this point. Be more of a fvcking smart ass, it seems all the marty apologists on here are.

 

Again the rangers are playing much MUCH better hockey than when marty faced them, there is no way he should get the start if this teams intention is making the playoffs. We just can't afford to drop any more games. The BEST possible team needs to be on the ice every night it can be, and that doesn't include marty anymore.

How can you be a fan of this team and not want Marty in net for one outdoor game before he retires? Jesus.

I don't disagree but maybe some people value going to the playoffs more.

It's not like Marty is a complete scrub putting up an .850 save percentage. It's a big time game against his all time rival, is be AMAZED if he lays an egg.

Marty definitely deserves the outdoor game. That's a 'legacy game'. I have no problem with him starting it. And even as someone who HIGHLY values making the playoffs and has been critical of his play this season, it would be wrong to not give Marty this particular game- its the first Devils outdoor game, and likely the only one Marty will have a chance to play in. I think a vast, vast majority of the fanbase has no problem with him starting. At least I hope.

I'm sorry I respect the greatest goalie of all time. It's crazy of me, I know. Also, I said I wouldn't object to Cory playing every game. I still stand by my statement that Marty has played this group of Rangers well this season (including a game during their current hot streak). Be more of a fvcking dumb ass. It seems all the Marty haters on here are.
