It really is amazing how here it is 18 years later and the Devils still have the same goaltender.
It'd be equally interesting to go around the league and see how many starting goaltenders have played for each team in that same span...some of those teams didn't even EXIST when Marty became the man in '94.
The Whalers were still the Whalers back then, and the Nordiques were still in Quebec. The Winnipeg Jets were the real Winnipeg Jets, not the Atlanta transplants.
The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and Florida Panthers were playing their inaugural seasons, and the Dallas Stars were playing their first season in Dallas after having moved from Minnesota.
Four teams that didn't even exist: the Atlanta Thrashers, the Nashville Predators, the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Minnesota Wild.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
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.
