When/if one of the 456 defensemen we have on the big club gets hurt.

To practice with the team *if* they make the playoffs? I really don't expect to see him unless some injuries occur. Salvador, Zidlicky, Greene, and Fayne all seem like locks for DeBoer, Merrill has earned his trust (rightfully so imo), and if Gelinas becomes too much of a liability they still have Volchenkov and PDB's boy Harrold.

Nah they won't do that. Especially if Albany is in the playoffs

With the Ruutu trade what do you think our lines will look like tomorrow at practice? If I'm not mistaken Ruutu has played some center in the past for Carolina, so maybe DeBoer has a couple options here on where to slot this guy, the way I see it:

 

Zubrus/Clowe - Zajac - Jagr

Henrique - Elias - Brunner

Zubrus/Clowe - Ruutu - Ryder

Carter - Gionta - Bernier

 

or

 

Ruutu - Zajac - Jagr

Henrique - Elias - Brunner

Clowe - Zubrus - Ryder

Carter - Gionta - Bernier

 

I really think DeBoer has had Zubes penciled in here as a winger but he has played center in the past as well (mostly with Washington and Buffalo), but I see the first option with Ruutu at center more likely, just a matter if DeBoer wants Zubes or Clowe on that top line after Zubie's mediocre performance on Tuesday.

 

EDIT: Type-o on the 2nd set of lines

Gelinas better not get sent down.  I don't need to remind everyone that his positives outweigh his negatives.  17 goals scored in the 4 games since he's been called back up.

 

Nah they won't do that. Especially if Albany is in the playoffs

I could see this trade making a forward available at the draft. Lets assume Jagr resigns with the Devils, that leave Jagr, Zajac, Ruutu, Henrique, Elias, Brunner, Clowe, Ryder, Zubrus all as top 9 forwards with Boucher almost certain to be ready. Ryder seems like the most likely scenario.

As most thought both getting a game this weekend: Cory - Friday and Brodeur - Saturday (Per TG). The fact that Pete has announced both games this early tells me everything I need to know about the situation.

 

Cory probably has to play very well Friday (get a win!), or Brodeur might be getting the next game after the weekend.

Schneider starting tomorrow.  I really see Marty getting five or less starts the remainder of the year, and they will be against weak opponents and/or when the Devils know that they are in or out of the playoffs.

 

EDIT:  Whoops, didn't see that Marty was already given the start on Saturday.  Still against a weak opponent though.

Schneider getting the 1st game actually gives me some optimism they are going to stick with him. I would've been more worried if Brodeur got the 1st game and then was in line to rest for the 2nd so he would be set up for the game after the weekend.

That's a bet.  I bet he gets over 5 starts.

I am pretty sure Pete doesn't usually announce a starter of the second half of a back-to-back a day before the first one. I just think if Brodeur wins and Cory loses (regardless of offensive support or GA, definitely not save percentage), Pete will think long and hard about for the next game.

 

This is a man that talked about the Devils record with Janssen in the lineup. He might just go with Brodeur because of the goal support factor, and win factor.

That's just it though, the odds of that are not particularly high.  I agree that that will be the calculus, but Schneider gives the Devils a better chance to win, so the odds are better that he will.  It's the least likely outcome of both guys starting in a weekend (and starting against teams of equal strength).  One break Brodeur gets is that both Carolina and the Devils are traveling after playing on Friday.

"I'm intrigued a little bit. I'm pretty excited now to be here and not have to go anywhere. Certain situations that happen are out of your control. I want to play some games and I want to play in the playoffs. These are some of the (things) I asked Lou when we had conversations about playing time and if we get in the playoffs. So I expect to play and I expect myself to try to be in the playoffs also. It's up to me to play well when I'm called upon."

"We understand it's a coach's decision. If I have anyone to blame, I won't blame it on Cory, that's for sure. I'll blame it on somebody else first. He's an athlete and he wants to play. That's normal. It would be a shame for a top goalie to be afraid to play or happy to be sitting on the bench."

 

What a relief for Cory!

Hopefully that's the end of Marty talking about his situation for a while.  I'll always love the guy for many reasons, but for right now I think I'm starting to grow tired of his honesty, which more and more seems to be centered around what's best for Marty and not for anyone else.  Please go low-key and play your best when called upon.

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.

If we make the playoffs, Marty shouldn't be playing a single game. But we all know the odds of that... He'll be in for game 1.

Hey Marty, maybe you should blame yourself for not realizing your limitations here... But good to know you don't blame Cory, that's a relief.
