Goaltender Martin Brodeur said the plan is still for him to start Saturday and play the full game.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

I think he'll split the game maybe. I think Marty didn't want one week between starts..I get that.

I don't buy into the whole "rest" thing. I don't think resting players at the end of the season does anything to revitalize the player for the playoffs. It does however prevent injuries. Anytime during the season when you have something to play for, even it it;s game 82, you should play your best players. Even if it's just to move up a spot.

However, in this case WE cannot change anything with our next game. We are in sixth no matter what. There is no reason any of our top players should play and risk injury.

Look, one game won't suddenly tire Marty out. If him being tired in the postseason is going to hurt us it won't be because he played the one last regular season game. No big deal, plus he doesn't like not being in a game for awhile.

I wanted him to play this game. Otherwise he has a week in between starts, which I don't think is a good thing. He'll still get 3-4 days off before the playoffs.

Yeah, giving him a full week between starts is wayyyyyyy dumber than having him play Saturday. He's at his best when he's got a regular workload, and I think DeBoer did a pretty good job of building him up to this level rather than just throwing him out there 70+ games.

It's not like other recent years - He's gotten better as the year went on and he played more and more regularly, and the early rest means there's less miles on him than usual this time of year.

The soonest he'll start after that is Wednesday at 7PM. That's 3 hours+Sunday->Monday->Tuesday->Wednesday = 99 hours of full and complete rest, plenty of time for Get Real to unbunch his giant-sized panties just in time for the playoffs.

Because MB30 says so.

And For those defending this, he's near 40, not 30. If he gives up softie after softie in round 1 again, do not be surprised. There's no reason why Kovy should be on the ice tomorrow either.

A week off between starts is just too long, especially when the team is playing well the last couple of games. It's the last game to get everything set for the playoffs.

Keep in mind, with a very possible lock-out next season, unsure finances, and an expired contract, this also could possibly be Marty's last regular season start as a Devil.

Barring a lockout, Marty will be back next season....

Still a possibility that it could be his last. The NHL and NHLPA are far apart at the moment.

Go ahead. I am confident that Hedberg can fill in the role perfectly.

And Marty's started what, 60 games this year compared to the 75+ he started when he was tired in the playoffs? Not to mention one of the years he was particualrly bad in Round 1 (the Tampa series with all the shortside goals) was after he DID sit the final home game of the season and have a week off.

lastone and Risky nailed it in the posts before.

Fair point but I don't want to be the Colts or Packers either and just go in the deep freeze with long rests.
