Just think - we get to do it all over again next year!

 

I doubt it.  There will be better communication with the situation than there was this year.

How do you figure that? Marty "wants to play" and Cory is way better. I don't see Marty making a 180 and being a happy backup next year.

totally agree and he has already came out and said he wants to play again next year.. nothing will be different here with the goalie situation at all... obviously enless if he signs some where else but who knows i doubt that will happen

I certainly hope not. If next season the same is going on I will take a break from the Devil. BTW just so it is clear I blame Marty for all of this crap, 100%.

Where is the evidence to support your statement other than your opinion? Marty isn't changing.

how could you blame marty for wanting to play the game? ... hes a player thats what they want to do play the game.. if your pissed about him getting time and possibly jacking up the whole "schneider transition" it should be management to blame not the player

There's a few teams that lack a 'true' starter and I think Brodeur is more likely to want to try his luck there than come in here for what's a sure backup position.  I also think he could wait for a goalie to get hurt before he signs.

There is empirical evidence to support his claim right now, Marty at his age is still clamoring for starter time, there is no indication that a switch will suddenly flip next year for him and he will be ok in a back up roll.


Totally different then making a blind assumption based on what you believe should happen.

deboer mentioned how he prefers marty on 3+ days of rest as a reason for FL/Tampa decision.

 

i really expect cory to get the boston game unless he gets torched and looks bad vs florida and marty is lights out vs tampa (neither of which i expect)

This Cory vs Marty or Marty vs Cory is so tiring.

 

Think how we have felt the last 10 years with you and only Marty. At least we get some variation here.

For all we may know his mind can change, at any time. We're not behind the curtains with him and Lou. What happened at the deadline might make him see no one is starting him for fourty plus games a year.

Nothing he has said this year indicates that he will take a backseat if he returns. That is pure speculation with no evidence to support it. Whereas Lucifer is observing how Marty has acted and making a call based on that.

 

It is far more likely if Marty returns that he continues to believe he is a starter then it is for him to go gracefully into the sun set. Meanwhile no one is starting him 40 games a year but we are going to at this rate.

I would just enjoy a .925 streak of Brodeur to finish the season.

Everything. Is speculation at this point. No one knows anything till it happens and should taking with a grain of salt.

Who wouldn't?  But I'll take .910 or so.  At least it's not .898.

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.

His mouth and attitude were always the same and that is more troubling to fans today than his play.

Marty's has a team-first attitude.  His mouth was never something that bothered me, like most hockey players, they know what to say to media and its usually very similar, rarely anything out of the ordinary.
