Oh hey I'm back. Just pointing out that Brodeur is unfortunately 0-4-1 in his last 5.
He could have won 1 or 2 of those games but Hedberg needs to start Tuesday.
Also just realized all of these losses have been coming at a 1 goal differential.
This team is insanely strange. Hence a 5-0 win vs. 1-0 loss against a weaker team IMO.

Just pull the goalie and get this 2-0 loss over with.
Wow really looking forward to going to the game Tuesday. They picked a great time to play like this.

Yeah i tried and others tried to make him understand politely to tone down his emotions.... I mean its ridiculous... The guy joined the forum 2 months and a half ago... And hes already a 1130 posts... And about 90% of them were either useless whining or overjoy comments. And hes blaming the team for being inconsistant... Look at yourself man

Members here went out of their way many times in different thread to tell him that hes annoying and that NO ONE here likes reading his constant bullsh!t... And its always the same response " im a passionate fan.. Bla bla bla"

I mean i feel bad for posting this really but man this guy is becoming so annoying... Now when the devils are losing im getting even more pissed cause I KNOW im gonna have to read all his bullsh!t. I mean yeah we all whine here from time to time obviously, but hes just too much

I REALLY hope this is the last time we have to make him understand... I mean personaly if many members here would have told me that im annoying and all that... Id feel bad and change my way, i wouldnt want to be associated with constant whining and all that overblown emotion all the time

I'm sure Triumph or someone could check the stats, but March hasn't been a very good month for us since 05-06.


They haven't been great, but they haven't been complete disasters either...and they usually pull it together somewhat in April:

'10-'11 8-5-1 (3-3 in April)
'09-'10 7-5-3 (4-2 in April)
'08-'09 7-6-1 (but went 0-4-1 to end the month...4-2 in April)
'07-'08 6-6-1 (3-1 in April)
'06-'07 6-6-2 (3-1 in April)
'05-'06 7-5-3 (9-0 in April)

1-1-1 so far this season, with 14 left to play...coming in I was hoping for 20 points for the month, which means they have 14 games left in the month to come up with 17 points. It won't be easy, but they can do it.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

They're not insanely strange. Things are evening out for them.

This team was due for a slump...many of us have pointed out that 23-8-3 surge they enjoyed before this downturn. Are the Devils really so good that they should have been expected to continue to win at that pace? Especially since they had a fair number of breaks going their way at times during that stretch? Tri has pointed this out, and it's true...this team is not really playing THAT much worse than they were before. And speaking in absolutes, like when people say things that amount to "The Devils should automatically beat teams below them in the standings", that stuff just doesn't hold true in a parity-driven league like the NHL anymore. These teams are just not very far apart these days, and any team can beat any other team any given night. You don't see pathetic, almost-no-chance-to-win, 41-point teams like the '83-'84 Devils playing anymore. Bottom-feeders are still not good teams, but they're better now than their past counterparts.

Let's face it, the feeling here for many of us was that this team was going to be a lower seed. And as long as they avoid a complete collapse (that would be 7 or 8 wins the rest of the way), they'll get into the playoffs...and if you think about it, the best seed for them right now might very well be the 6...I don't think they'll enjoy any great home ice advantage if they're the 4, and the 5 will probably put them up against Pittsburgh or Philadelphia.

May I remind everyone that there is an ignore feature for people who really annoy you?

I'm not trying to play mod here. I'm just saying, the ignore feature has made GDT's much more enjoyable for me.


I wish I could hit the +1 button on this post more than once.

I cant believe anyone is debating starting Marty or hedberg...... How can you blame Marty if we lose 1-0? Seriously!? hedberg gets all kinds of offensive support in an easy 5-0 game but Marty gets 0 support...... if marty was losing games 4 or 5-0 I would sit him but he isnt so go with the Hall of famer!

Yep this. Home ice be damned, if the Devils can face Washington or Florida in the 1st round I don't think it'll matter much

+1000. I'm always amazed at how insane some people are after a loss around here. How can you blame Marty for this loss, or the loss to the Rags last week? He's been very good for a long stretch here. If the offense can't score, then you can put Jesus Christ in net and they're still going to lose.

I think it's less about people blaming Marty, and more about some fans feeling that the team plays better in front of Hedberg, for whatever the reasons. I'm def not in that camp, just clarifying that I don't think this is a bash Marty thing.

Honestly I was surprised Marty got the start yesterday after Moose got the shutout on Friday. Usually Moose would get it again after that.

I noticed Marty has been playing a lot more after DeBoer yanked him in Calgary. He is even using him in both games for back to backs. It makes me wonder if this is Lou's call again or if Marty said something.

Admittedly, this is the one thing I wish would stop. Marty hasn't played so well that he should be starting both ends of back-to-backs, and Hedberg deserves to get more starts than he does. Marty's played well enough that I don't mind him starting 65%-75% of the time, but sometimes I wonder what Hedberg has to do to get in there just a little more often. Four starts since 1/11 seems a little unfair to both goalies.
