lol at all four goals being stoppable. Game 1 was a one-timer and a breakaway with their best player. Game 2 Doughty made half the team look silly and fired a shot through a screen, then Carter scored off a rebound. At most one of them was soft, and that's only because Marty himself took the blame on the Fraser goal.

Sykkie removes who ? Not Carter or Bernier. Lil G could be the victim.
Clarkson....haven't seen him in a bit...I heard he scored 30 this year

Why would Little Gio of ALL people be the victim? He's the smallest fvcking person on the ice and he plays with HUGE heart. He's got more hit than a lot of our big guys. Clarkson scored 30 goals this year, yes, but he's stunk up the place in the first 2 games. I'd do it and see.

Harrold played great the last 2 games the guy has shown serious composure. IF and it's a big IF Larrson is brought in Zid should sit if it's based purely on performance. I say Tallinder doesn't play at all it's just been too long. Sykora could replace anyone keeping in mind if we sit some guys we lose size. Zubrus hasn't done a whole lot, Poni has also been a ghost, something is up with Clarkson, and Elias hasnt produced. Sykora could spark Elias? Glad I'm not the coach and don't have to make this call. Obvious that the pressure is on everyone in NJ because as a team they haven't played as they did the last 2 rounds...save our rock of a 4th line. I don't see how anyone can say lil G has stunk up anything! Did anyone else see that Parise-like backcheck last game? He also forced a turnover at their blue line, brought it in and got a scoring chance. None of this includes what the 4th line has done as an overall unit. All those guys on the 4th line have played excellent and none of them should sit or get broken up.

Zids isn't sitting. He's highly effective in the offensive zone. Yeah his defense is trash most of the time and him trying to stand up Dustin Brown was hilarious, but still...

No way on PDB inserting Moose for Marty for Game 3. That was OK to do once in a while during the regular season when Marty would be giving up 3+ goals a game for a few games in a row, and PDB wanted to send a psychological message to the offensive players to get them to score more goals.

But this is the friggin' Stanley Cup Finals, and Marty has only given up two goals per game. This is no time to pull a stunt like that. Whatever change needs made must come from somewhere else.

I'm not putting blame on any one player but its hard to win SCF games when none of Zajac, Henrique, Kovalchuk, Parise, or Elias are scoring.

For those of you who think Marty is the reason we were in games 1 and 2, you've obviously been wearing your Marty goggles. He's been good enough, but the Kings haven't challenged him a great deal. Both first goals in each of the first two games were savable, especially the first goal in game 1.



What Marty goggles? He made some huge saves, especially with the glove last night. The only soft goal was the first. He was also one of the few players with any composure in the OT last night. It sucks that he gave up goals in OT, but somebody has to win, and somebody has to lose, and LA generated a bunch of chances.

Why the hell would you put in Hedberg? Marty has played extremely well in the first two games, and most of the playoffs, save game 3 against the Panthers and Game 5 against the Rags.

No "psychological lift" is needed, nor possible.

It's documented, Hedberg has never won the cup. This may be his last year in the sport. Plenty of motivation to play hard.

Does Peter DeBoer use Hedberg in game 3 to help "kickstart" the team psychology a bit? Remember Terreri playing 2 games on the road after the Devils were down 2-0 to Boston?

Also, does Sykie and Larsson get a looksie in game 3...?

Discuss...


Different situation...Marty was a rookie that season with minimal playoff experience, and didn't play particularly well those first two games against Boston...and the goalie situation was more 1A-1B that year. He'd also come off that crazy 4OT Game 6 loss and nail-biting Game 7 win over Buffalo...at the time it wouldn't surprise me if he needed a little mental break.

Despite some wanting to kill him over every single goal he gives up these days, the Devils simply need the guys who get paid to put the puck in the net to do just that. It won't be easy...there's a reason Quick has a .947 save% for the playoffs. Clearly a LOT of guys are having trouble getting the puck past this guy right now.

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?
- 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.

This. Marty and the d have been good enough. We need to score, and the best way to score against Quick is probably boom hard shots and put in rebounds. We need our best shooters on the points.

Moose has played 2 periods in the last 2 months and none in the last 46 days. Why would you put him in there in a must-win game when Marty has been very good?

I agree, but they need Clarkson. Quick gets beaten on ugly goals near the net, especially off of deflections and rebounds, in other words, Clarkson's specialty. If they're going to win, they need Clarkson to start playing like he did in the regular season FAST. I want to get Sykora in, because his shot creates rebounds, but Clarkson, Parise and Zubs all need to be ready to bury them.

No chance Hedberg starts over Marty...

I would like to see Larsson and/or Tallinder in on D...

Also would not mind seeing Sykora inserted...he got a raw deal and I think he deserves another chance here. We can use his cannon blast of a shot...


Agreed

No way Marty sits. Maybe if it's a game that gets out of hand and Moose is brought in off the bench, but no way he starts. Marty has been great.
