Who is starting vs. Buffalo?

24 posts in this topic

Still do not know and there is no word yet. I would guess Weekes, but if Clemmesen starts he needs to continue the solid play and have to watch for a let down in this game after last night. I think it will be Weekes.

I hope they put Weekes out there tonight, I would guess Clemmer may be a bit fatigued.

Due to the schedule, the Devils are going to have the same problem as they play 3 in 4 again.

Or Clemmy has to hope the team continues to play so well his job is made easy. Last nights goaltending was horrific. I find it unfathomable that Weekes wouldn't start after that crapfest last night.

I would think it would be Weekes, but nothing has been said yet like SatansDevils mentioned. Knowing Sutter, it is up in the air. The team is playing tonight, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday so I would think it would be wise to put Weekes in tonight if theyre giving Clemmensen the "starting" role as it appears to be.

With Weekes we better hope it won't be a crapfest, because Buffalo can score goals. Clemmensen has been doing good and he needs a rest after last night. Even the best of them like Brodeur lets in bad goals like Clemmensen did last night vs. the NYR. He got the win and played well after that 5th goal was scored. Weekes I have NO confidence in and if Buffalo lights him up tonight (if Weekes is playing) I will not be susprised. Devils need to keep the train running tonight and hope their is no let down.

I hope it's Weekes. Clemmensen seems like he needs the rest, and I like Weekes! I want to see him get another shot.

Clemmy hasn't had a game that was as good as Weekes first period last time the Devils played Buffalo. I'm glad Clem played well after giving up 3 or 4 questionable goals :lol:

I don't understand why everyone thinks Clemmensen hasn't been playing well.

Yes, he gave up some questionable goals, but a few of them were complete flukes. For example, the tying goal that squeezed under his arm...that happens to Marty all the time.

With that said, I think tonight should definitely be Weekes, but I still think Clemmensen has been playing outstanding and has been doing so consistently. Even the best goalies have crazy games.

Yep, Weekes against Buffalo was amazing. It would have been like if Lundqvist held us to 2 goals last night.

The Clemmerlove goes a little too far. He wasn't good last night, give him a rest. Too much comparing him to Brodeur going on now. The "maybe this will kill Marty's ego" post from last night was one of the dumbest things I've ever read. Marty seemed to be enjoying the game last night... yeah, he was secretly hoping the team would fail so he'd look better.

It's time to go to more of a rotation unless one of the goalies vastly outperforms the other. Clemmer played well, but Weekes got the hook after a WIN, basically because he gave up one bad goal. (and it was a doozy)

A win is a win, keep going with the goaltender that is getting it done regardless how he does it.

I had mentioned in another thread that Clemmer has a better save % than Marty in the same number of games.... (not including last night)

he's playing great.

If you don't think this is slightly hurting Brodeur's ego than you don't understand professional athletes. No one ever said it will kill Brodeur's ego, but what if the Devils keep winning, and winning. Suddenly the media really picks up on how the Devils are playing just as good as they ever have with a no name defense and a no name goalie. Suddenly they might be talking about the system in Jersey being the key, and maybe Brodeur wasn't as important as before.

In no way was I saying that this will affect him at all. Just puts your ego in check for a little bit. I am not saying he isn't enjoying the team winning either. For example,

Steve Smith is a receiver for the Carolina Panthers. He like most big time receivers has quite an ego. He got suspended for the first two games of the season and most people said they were screwed. Well they scored a ton of points in both games and went 2-0. This was a guy who mostr experts said was the offense. Next week he comes back and says I don't need to be the offense anymore. This team showed that they can win without me. It defintely showed that this team can without me...Here is one of the quotes I could find.

" "The team is 2-0. That says this about this team: no Smith, no problem," Smith wrote. "I come in now and I'm just a guy. I don't have any pressure. I don't have to do anything extra. I catch balls and go home.

"This is the least pressure I've felt in my eight-year career."

I'm sure at times Marty felt for good reason he was the guy, and if he didn't play his best this team wouldn't win. Maybe that is changed now. That's all. And it is a good thing.

And never did I say he wanted the team to fail..so please don't put words in my mouth. I said I am guessing he didn't expect this.

Try not to whap any Sabres in the face with your stick, it's a penalty at the professional level.

I feel the same way. Clemmer's done everything we've asked for so far.
