In fairness, I don't think we can say with any real certainty what Marty is at this point.  No one can.  He's never been a backup in his career, so it's not like playing him less will make him better, or reverse slowing reflexes.  The numbers over the last few seasons overall indicate that he's not a good puck-stopper anymore (the roughly 50-game burst to close out the '11-'12 season was likely the very best of what he has left).  I don't see him being that much better than he's been since the start of last season. 

 

Schneider will get a workload this season (don't see how he won't, no matter how many games Marty envisions himself starting) that he's never gotten before, and that's good...we need to see if Schneider can play 50-60 games (or more) in a given year.

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.

I thought Larrson recovered from two piss poor games.

Sal at 26 is a joke along with Harrold at 22. They're banking on players playing above their head which has backfired in the early parts of the season

For what it's worth, I just watched the goals against from Marty's last two games and he's getting beat a lot to the blocker side.  I'm not sure if he's off positionally, of if he's having trouble following the puck or something..but they're zipping by him on the blocker.

 

He's all over the place positionally.  It's just a lot of guesswork.  Schneider probably doesn't get beat by either goals 2 or 3 and he has a better chance at stopping 4.

I agree. Larsson looked good last night. Harrold is getting Mottau'd. I like him, but not at top 4 minutes.

A nice positive is that the Devils DO have guys they can give a shot to.  Everyone loves wins to start the year, but at the same time, the early season really is like extended preseason...teams like the Devils still need to figure out which guys are every-game players at certain positions.

 

It'd be a hell of a lot more ideal if the Devils weren't trying to juggle so many damned road games along with player decisions, but it is what it is. 

 

I'm also guessing (not exactly going out on a limb on this one) that Schneider will be named the Devils' #1 goalie by mid-November.  Marty probably won't be happy about it behind the scenes, but I do think he'll say the right things in public, and not make it a controversy.

How about enough with the bullsh!t,  waive harrold,  send him down.

 

Volchenkov as your 7th, bring up Merrill and play he and Fayne

 

Bench Gionta and Carter, play Olesz/Bernier/Josefson

Carter didnt have the best game last night but I still think hes one of the best on the 4th line... I dont think id be ready to bench him just yet. Everyone is so fast to pull the trigger.

I dont dislike Carter, i think he is useful.  I just want to give others a shot right now and i'd rather have Bernier than Carter

Bingo, but replace Merrill with Gelinas. 

 

Also, I'd like to point out that DeBoer used his timeout last night on a PK after the game went to 4-3. What in the actual fvck is he doing these days?

He didn't do that.  He had already used his timeout in the 2nd period.  Of course, Chico and Steve, Steve being clueless about hockey and Chico about everything, thought it was Edmonton who called the timeout in the 2nd, because Chico has still not figured out that you can't change lines after icing the puck.  

 

Harrold is playing 20 minutes a game, I don't see him on waivers any time soon.

Don't feel good about this one, but let's go Devils!

 

I went to bed during the second intermission, while the Devils had a 3-0 lead. I was looking forward to quoting this post, saying "wow, I should feel bad about more Devils games if this is the result." I'm really shocked at what happened.

 

Olesz for Gionta, Josefson for Henrique anyone? Maybe it isn't the time for Henrique to come out yet, but he's got to start scoring soon. It definitely shouldn't be permanent, but the guy needs some pressure, imo.

Rewatch it. The 2nd period timeout was Edmonton. DeBoer called his down 4-3. I literally just watched.

Okay, great.  Why does the NHL play by play say VISITOR TIMEOUT in the 2nd period and HOME TIMEOUT in the 3rd period?  Because the Devils took a timeout in the 2nd.  They had iced the puck and their line had been out for a long time.  Chico is still oblivious to this, he picks up on it less than half the time, he'll say something like 'They just want to get things settled down, I guess'.

I'll be honest, I watch the games on mute most of the time. Even the graphic on screen in the 2nd said "Timeout Edmonton". Can't even trust that I guess. Ugh. My bad.

Yeah, him getting beat by Hemsky with a beer league toe drag was awesome. I think it was a 2 on 1 as well, with Hemsky being a right handed shooter on the right side. Adam going to Hemsky and missing everything shows me what we are dealing with. I am tired of hearing about age, he blows. Go watch Jake Trouba play.

I think we're all glad you're a fan and not a coach then.
