Does anyone else follow (or I should say "like") Martinbrodeur30.com on Facebook? The reason i ask is about a week or 2 ago (whenever it was announced that Oates was leaving) i was going through "My Wall" on Facebook and there was a status update / article posted by MartinBrodeur30.com with something to the effect of "Devils Name Scott Stevens Asst. Coach" and when I clicked the link on it to the website it was a dead link and when I clicked back on my browser that status update was gone; forever. Long story short, it's like Marty (or really whomever runs his site) knew this a couple weeks ago and posted it by mistake and i happened to catch it for a split second. Not really news or anything, just wanted to share...

PS - I like Scott Stevens.


Most likely it's one of those fake insiders that makes educated guesses and posts/tweets it as being sourced.

ADDENDUM: By the way, this brings up another example of the ways of the fake insiders.

Gulliti tweeted at 1:25 about the Stevens hiring. Hockeyyinsiderr then tweeted, two minutes later, "Hearing #NJDevils are very close to announcing Scott Stevens as assistant coach."

What a clown.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

San Jose fired Shaw (and all their other assistant coaches) because after last year they wanted some heads to roll. Probably a shortsighted move, but who knows really what happens behind the scenes.

Stevens is going to be a good coach

Sometimes a legendary player doesn't make a great coach. Gretzky couldn't do it, neither could Ted Williams or Bryan Trottier. A lot of times these great talents just have a hard time imparting their wisdom to others. The game came easily to them, they were just freaks of nature

Stevens was different, he wasn't blessed with Chara's size or Gretzky's 6th sense, or Bure's speed. He just flat out worked hard to become a dominant defenseman. I feel he'll be able to connect well with the talent on the ice. Plus like Larry he can be both the nice guy and the pissed off ice man you don't want to mess with...which is important because some guys need a pat on the shoulder and others need a scream in the ears.

All the assistant coaches have double letters in their name and two sets of letters (TT,RR). and the tt's are in the first name, and the rr's, are in the last name.

I have watched enough movies and television to know that this is no coincidence

Stevens. On the Bench. It just sounds wonderful...again !


That attitude of "hating losing, more than enjoying winning" has to rub off on some players....

its like the factoid that many of the NHL's highest scorers have 7-letters in the last name.
or maybe most people have 7-letters in their last name.

Very interested in seeing what he can do with Fayne. Has all the tools and is still growing. Not really a 'mean' player though. If Stevens could bring some of that out of his game, that would be incredible.

My only reason to hesitate calling this a great move is that one of the things Stevens did really well -- open ice shoulder to head hits -- is now forbidden. He did a lot more than that though, so hopefully it won't matter.

In short, I'm completely stoked about these developments. I'm still bummed Larry left but all things considered, this is probably about the best-case scenario.
