Brunner's confidence has disappeared and I don't know when it will come back.  Until then he just keeps making the wrong play.

 

Loktionov's on ice shooting percentage is super low - his line isn't getting the breaks.  I thought he was playing fairly well lately.

 

Tedenby isn't going to be an NHL scorer.

I'm seriously concerned about Brunner.  

I'm not that worried about Ryder actually.  He's getting his chances.  Eventually they start going in for him.  

Loktionov has been playing well imo.  Sure he may not be producing, but he's skating hard and doing some good things.

If it's an emergency recall it probably isn't serious, unless they just plan to have Merrill play this one game then Volchenkov will take his spot.

DeBoer on Brodeur starting tonight: "He feels good and wanted the game, so that was good enough for me.”

 

So that's what Cory has to do: tell Pete he wants the game. One thing is for sure...we have the best backup since...since...Vancouver in 2011-2012.

yeah, i can't support this idea. then again, cory's going to get 2 of the next 3 and 4 of the next 8 so i guess it's not a huge deal.

Can't be so sure. Marty with a decent performance and a win? I could see Debo rolling out Brodeur again Wednesday as we collectively groan.

If Marty wins, why is there a "collective groan"?!?  I would understand it if Marty was playing terribly and continued to get starts, but that is not the case here...

i would be surprised - one because i think they might be in for a tough game tonight and two because giving schneider 2 games in 2 weeks is not a smart play.

because schneider has played more than well enough to at least get 50% of the starts. everyone is waiting for the shoe to drop on marty's performance the last 4 weeks. it hasn't happened yet. but you don't want schneider getting stale either.

I don't get it either. If he's playing well and winning, use him. There's still 50 something games left. Cory will have plenty of games in there as the season wears on.

This logic works in the other direction, except one guy is the 41 year old goalie who misses time with an injury most years, and one is a 27 year old goalie who has rarely been injured in his career.

 

Entirely possible that the best thing for the Devils long-term is that Brodeur gets shelled in one of these games.

That's pretty much what I'm saying. Marty isn't going to be able to hold this up all year. Between that and the inevitable tweaked shoulder or bruised knee or whatever, he will miss time.

Why accelerate the process though?  There's no need to play a 41-year old Brodeur in 80-90% of non back-to-back games.

Because Schneider undoubtedly gives the team a better chance to win. 

 

After his performance against LA, what does it say to play him again?

This is Pete we're talking about here.  He loves running his guys into the ground.  It would be ridiculous not to play Schnieder for a week and three or four games since the LA game but I wouldn't put it past Pete at all.  He plays Kovalchuk 26 minutes a night and Gionta with bad ankles, he'll overplay a 41-year old Marty too.

It's time to take Janssen out of the lineup.  Somebody from the AHL has to have some offensive ability.
