wow that was a great moment

 

got his name called by Marty at the table and his jersey handed to him from Marty too. What a great moment for the family especially in NJ.

 

hope some of you guys got to catch it too

Looking forward to seeing the highlights of this.  Kid probably won't ever make it, but the moment makes it worth it...I'm sure it meant a lot to Marty.  Scary, I remember when Anthony's baby photo was shown during a Devils game not so long ago (or so it seems)...time goes so damned fast...

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.

Hope this kid proves he is a solid goalie. As a few people have said in the past, this isn't baseball where every family member of a person in the organization is drafted somewhere within the 50 rounds. The NHL only has 7 rounds, so this isn't very common. It's an absolutely great moment for the outside viewer and for Martt,  but I hope this motivates him anymore and is a positive for him. He's prob spent his whole life playing hockey with people bugging him about his dad being better than him (or you'll never be close to his father). He's definitely going to hear now that he was only drafted because the Devils felt bad or because of his father.

 

Not trying to sound negative, but this moment could really be a downer for him too.

I remember him coming out donning his Marty gear during an intermission one time.  Marty stayed and watched instead of going directly into the room with the team.

I remember Brodeur getting the A and the other initials on his helmet. Crazy even if he never makes it, at least they appeased Marty w/ them getting Schneider (even if Marty damn well better be teh backup next year lol)

Also, what a nice move by Lombardi to trade that pick to the Devils.

Yea I just saw this on NHL.com. Good shot but I hope it doesn't come across to much as "he got drafted only to make his father feel good"

It also could be just the motivation he needs to prove people wrong. We'll have to wait and see I guess but this was definitely a very cool, classy moment. My favorite part was the interview they did afterwards with Marty and Anthony. They asked Marty how hard the Devils were working to get a pick to draft his son and Marty goes "Well, I don't know how hard it is to get a 7th round pick" and laughs and Anthony just shoots him this look like "fvck you dad". You could see they were having fun with the whole thing.
