Since hitting his stride in 2002-03, he's put up 817 points (302 goals and 515 assists) in 779 games played...in the Dead Puck Era, no less.  Number of regular season games missed in that time?  Seven.  He has played in all of his team's games in 8 out of the last 10 seasons.  Guy really has had a special career.

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?

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.

 and he owes it all to Lecavalier. He's the one who got him a training camp invite as an undrafted player in Tampa. At some point they were both saying that they wanted to play their whole career together. It must be a really really though moment for them now.

 

which brings me back to a point i made awhile ago. And obviously its easy for me to say being just a regular guy but obviously when you can get a top of the line contract and long term. Personally i'd sign somewhere where i want to be and sign to a modest cap hit. Its still a lottttt of money but then we saw the stress and the trouble you get into if you don't live up to it. Fans turns against you. youre always stressed of being bought out or before to be sent in the AHL etc etc... again its easy for me to say but still.

If I thought I could negotiate a $85M contract over 11 years, I would do it in a heartbeat. I could care less who hates me after that. See ya on my private island, NOT, it's private biotch! lol.

You are right in that he was undrafted, but he got his start with the Flames.

yeah i know i should have been more clear. "to the point and where he is now and raised his family and all" is because Lecavalier got him his invite after Calgary dropped him. God knows if he would have played again in the NHL after that. Its a great story

It's a shame his contract was so long and bloated....he still puts up pretty good numbers, 32 points in 39 this season(?).  I would call that a damn productive 3rd or 2nd line center.  I'm jumping on the "Dick move, Tampa." train.

Unless you are planning on getting Marty St. Louis to play along side him in NJ, Vinny is pretty worthless and a cap killer.
