I can't take it anymore with his choke-a-riffic bullcrap. He's held this team back for so long...from Matteau (x2) to Laukkanen to Jagr putting one through him in 1999 game 6 to Markov game 5 Flyers 2004, Staal game 4 rangers 2008, the epic choke to carolina 2009, being outplayed by the Ray Emery's, Brian Bouchers and Robery Esche's of the world. He is FINISHED, DONE. A has been who was aided by the trap far too long and never an elite puckstopper in the Hasek/Roy mold (as you might think he would be by looking at his stats)

Now I'm not sure Hedberg is the answer...he's just a backup, maybe a hair better than Brodeur at this point. But to blow this series to the stinking offensively punchless panthers would be the last straw. Pack your bags and retire Marty...or go chase win #700 in some other sweater, because we can't carry your sorry ass any longer.

this team is just flat out fvcked in net. No faith in Brodeur, and I doubt Hedberg is going to be Cam Ward like in relief. Meanwhile Clemmenson or whatever scarecrow the Panthers put in net will prob magically morph into a brick wall

Cory Schneider should be our target in the offseason. Would shore up the goalie situation for the next decade.

You know why we're not down 3-0?

Because our team D made sure Brodeur didn't have to make a tough save in the 3rd period of game 1

I've been saying it for a couple years now but you always end up getting killed by the Marty fanboys. Brodeur has been living on reputation since the lockout. I can't stand the soft goals anymore. You know why Clemmensen looks so damn good? Because he's a terrific technical goaltender who doesn't get lazy or arrogant in his stance or defending against a shooter. Brodeur has been vastly overpaid the last few years as it is. I don't even want him back at vet minimum, as the Devils have reached the point where they need to build the team for the next five years rather than chasing the previous five. Fans need to learn when to disassociate themselves from a legend, because that's all Brodeur is anymore. A legend of Devils past who seems to have way too much sway in how Lou handles the Devils year in and year out.

The Devils need to get younger as well. They've been getting outskated so damn often, especially in rushes into their own zone.

They are the oldest team in the playoffs by average age. Salvador and Sykora can join Marty in filing their retirement papers. Sykora is hands down the slowest player on the ice, with Clarkson a close second.

But hey on the bright side at least we won't have to deal with the humiliation of losing to the Rags in round 2 this year...because I think finishing out your career by sitting on your ass as we meekly bow out to Clemmensen and the Panthers is a heckuva lot better than being serenaded by Maaaarty chants in your own building as you stand there bewildered after giving up a backbreaking 40ft wrist shot goal to Anton Stralman in game 5.

If (and it's looking probable) that the Devils lose this one, Lou better not pull any status quo nonsense.

You can't be serious. The first two goals had no business happening.

The trolling that was going to come from this was obvious but Marty was awful. Simply being average would have been sufficient tonight.

We don't know that for sure, but we can say that being not awful would've helped, at the very least.

I don't know how he has this great run from January on, and now he's back to 2008 Rangers series Marty. It's mind boggling, frustrating... And '7', while I love Broduer... What you say has a lot of merit right now. I can't take his playoff Mr. Softee garbage anymore.

This isn't a surprise. Brodeur was terrible but to be honest Moose didn't look that much better. Have to just go with him again and hope for the best. I don't know about next season, but for now, Brodeur just has to be better.

The point is that Marty did not single-handedly lose this game tonight. There were 19 other people in Devils uniforms tonight, one person did not lose a team game. And yes, I will continue to be pedantic and point out that he was pulled when the score was TIED.

Nice to see Marty threw Volchenkov under the bus for the first goal. IMO that's the final straw. Could you see Stevens ever pulling crap like that.
