Incredible mask! One of the best designs I have ever seen!
I think he has the highest potential out of any of the other goalies in the organization (Frazee, Kinkaid, Clermont). While his ECHL numbers may not be appealing to the eye, it is important to realize that he is playing on one of the worst teams in the league. I often read about how he is essentially a 1 man show for the Titans.
That's why I'm not making any big deal about Wedge's numbers...only so much a goalie can do playing on a bad team...just ask Chico Resch.
I think Frazee's days as a potential successor to Marty are done...he's going to be 26 years old at the end of this season, and Kinkaid is getting much more of the playing time for Albany. Kinda sucks in that the guy was a former 2nd-rounder. If both Marty and Moose finish this season with good numbers, it wouldn't surprise me if the Devils went with that same tandem one last time next season (crazy as that might sound, given their ages) while Wedge gets promoted to Albany (maybe the end of the road for Frazee at that point)...depending on how next season goes, I'm thinking Kinkaid or Wedgewood get a shot to make the team in 2014-2015, and if Brodeur has a good 2013-14 and decides he wants to play one more season, the Devils sign him for one swan song, mentoring kind of season. Of course, the semi-disaster scenario would be if Kinkaid (who the Devils probably don't view as their next NHL #1 anyway) or Wedgewood both struggle next season...then Lou probably has to go outside the organization. Not sure what Clermont brings...guess we won't know that for a couple of years yet.

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.
