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


I was correct about Marty it took all these years for other fans to catch on.

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

 

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

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.

Lol. It also took all these years for him to get old. But good line.

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.

If the team is just winning the games, that's fine with me.

You and PDB share this mentality - and honestly at this point in the season, so do I.  I'm over worrying about Cory's opinions or his likelihood to stay here long term.  If there was damage to be done..it's already occurred.  At this point just play out the season with the 'winningest' goaltender, and bid Marty farewell over the summer.

 

Although I will say, if the Devils do manage to make the playoffs..oh man the goalie drama will be soap opera worthy.

Yeah, very true.  We have no idea what's going on behind closed doors, but I think both goalies have been great teammates imo.  Neither one has any negatives to say about the other and both understand that only one can get the net at a time.  Schneider just needs to remain patient and he's been awesome in terms of saying the right things and not stepping on any toes.  He has to understand that his time is likely to come sooner rather than later.  Marty will test the market but I think he could be back here as a backup, which I'm totally okay with.

How creative are they allowed to make contracts? I'm guessing they all have to be pretty standard but I'm wondering if they can sign Marty to a half year deal next season or maybe sign him for a certain amount of wins (in other words if he needs 10 wins to get to 700, we sign him for a 10 win contract).

 

I'm not being very serious here but I do wonder how much freedom they have with contracts.

I'm too lazy to look this up, but I think NJ had ~25 shots per game going into the Olympic break.  Obviously they've been getting some nice shooting luck, but have their S/G increased during this stretch? My guess is no

The 2010-11 Devils had a 7-game surge of offense (4 GPG) as well.  They were under 2 GPG before that, then averaged about 2.2-2.3 GPG the rest of the way (might have even been a little less than that).  Basically, that's a nice way of saying I'd be surprised if the Devils stay above 2.5 GPG in their remaining games.  Doesn't mean they can't win...just won't be surprised when the goals stop coming at this rate.

I dont think anyone expects the team to keep up this torrid pace, but the fact that the team is averaging over 3 shots per game more is a good sign. You also have to take into account goaltending has been pretty loosey goosey since the Olympics, which will probably not continue (if they start #35).  In general, I think we'll see more of the same, a bunch of tight hockey games that, hopefully, we're on the right side of
