Anything that made me believe you were trying to help us out for another push before Marty hangs em up...
We may only have a couple more dances with #30 before he is gone forever...we should be trying to win every season, PERIOD.
Does that mean I want huge names every go around?!? Of course not, but something more impactful than Sullivan....
"Anything"? Can you name any names? Both the ones coming here and the ones the Devils were going to give up? It's easy to say "Lou should've been able to do more" when you don't have to get into specifics.
Sadly, it looks like #30 really needs a very very good team in front of him to prop him up at this point. You'll never get me to say a bad word about him, but even I can't ignore the not-so-good save%s Marty has been putting up now for quite some time. What deadline moves were going to make the Devils so good this season that they were going to be able to overcome the fact that, as a team, the Devils don't stop 90% of the shots they're facing?
Life is going to go on for the Devils after Marty calls it a career. They can't blow their wad trying to win Marty another Cup.
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.
