A reminder if someone retweets anything on your timeline of any established insider....it is fake. Why? Because you already follow McKenzie and Dreger, etc.

 

True...lol.

Brian Lawton ‏@brianlawton9 44s

Hearing that all talk surrounding Brodeur has ended. He will NOT be Traded...... Finishes yr with Devils.

 

Somewhere, Richard Chere starts preparing "are you retiring" questions.

 

That's disappointing, I've gotta be honest.

It's Lou's fault that he thinks Ryder, close & brunner are replacements for Kovi & zack!

Not even close !

 

More like: he thinks that Ryder, Clowe, and Brunner are the best he can do to replace those guys at the moment.

It is, but hopefully it's a healthy dose of reality for Marty

Since it's quiet....does anyone else have a dislike for Katie Strang? She's advertised as covering the Rangers, Islanders and Devils....but she is so one sided towards the Rangers it's not even close.

Lawton's unreliable, but find me a team where Brodeur's a fit.  There isn't one.  Especially if his trade list includes all sorts of hilarious teams like LA and Pittsburgh.

Dreger reporting Ruutu to NJ - wonder what's going the other way - Volchenkov?

Good move by Lou. Cut your losses, don't waste anymore of this deadline day discussing Brodeur (no return was probably anything near worth it), address our offense.

I think I can make a case that Marty's current value is effectively nothing, so you could give him away for that.

He's not retiring unless he gets no offers.  And the Devils will still think they need a .900 backup goalie so round and round we go.

 

I don't see Marty retiring even if he gets no offers. I don't know if I could see him in an SKA St. Petersburg jersey (or any other league) but I think he would wait for a deal next year (a dilemma which wouldn't occur because if needed Lou will sign him as a backup).

Agreed.  5 goals this year?  WOW.  Gionta has one less goal...ho hum.

Serious question regarding Marty/idea of trading him: who exactly would WANT an old .900 SV% goalie who is crying for playing time? I can't really fault Lou for not moving him if a market doesn't exist for him.
