Who would you bring back?
Posted 15 January 2012 - 05:30 PM
i was just thinking about it myself and figured i could make a poll about it to see what everyone here think
i think with our situation right now, it would have to be Marty i guess... can't go on with him really, my 2nd choice would be either Nierdermayer or Stevens... with today's NHL i'd probably go for Nieds...

Considering the construction of the modern game today, Nieds would probably be more effective, and its an area in which we are lacking. But Stevens is who i think of when people mention the Devils. And he brings things to the ice that no one else can.

While Stevens is a close second mostly based on emotion, I chose Marty #1. Getting a young stud goalie that will serve you at that high level for 2 decades is a no brainer, unless you mean Mario in the last choice.

Stevens can do anything. In today's NHL he'd be a 60+ point guy easy.
Yeah but we'd have to deal with fans of other teams after every single hits ,all whining saying he should be suspended lol

Stevens is a solid man to bring back also. A "no bullsh!t take no prisoners" kind of guy that was still talented with the sport and not just a gooner which I think this team needs.

I mean, to get an 18 year old franchise goalie again would be amazing. However, as others have stated...Stevens just...special player.
Real tough decision.

Scotty was just one of those rare players, that come around once a generation. Many aspects of his game never showed up on a stats sheet, but they were game-changers. Actually that's not even fair to say.. they were 'playoff-series' changers.
..one of the greatest Captains all-time, in ANY sport.

I worry how Stevens would be in todays game... and at what age his true offensive d-man game goes (difficult to say since he changed his game to fill a Devils role).

So much of success is circumstance - sometimes well planned sometimes just luck. Any of those guys would be valuable on any team and any of them could screw the pooch - you just never know.
I'm here for the party

In todays NHL Stevens would be watching from a booth more than playing
In today's NHL...Niedermayer.
