If he wanted to stay here, then he wants stability. IInstead of having two different teams a year anymore. He seems to want that, other wise he would have asked for a trade. But he didn't. So no.

The idea that him wanting to stay here this season means he wants to be on one team long-term is laughable. He's in his 40's. He is going to go where he thinks he can win.

Lots of wishy washy hypotheticals there, but that section about Marty coming back is pretty telling, imo.

If Lou makes the mistake of bringing Marty back, you can probably say goodbye to any extension Cory might have otherwise signed.

Money talks.  The Devils can offer more of it than anyone else.  That definitely helps their cause greatly, especially if Cory's signed to 6+ years and Marty comes back on a one-year.

 

That being said, I will be absolutely furious if Marty's re-signed.  There's just no reason for it that can possibly make any sense, and negatives far outweigh the positives. 

 

And as for that interview...it's about what you'd expect...a lot of words and detailed answers that don't really amount to anything.  Basically, Liut's not ruling anything out, anything can happen.  Like you said, lots of wishy washy hypotheticals...basically the equivalent of GMs saying, "If there's a move that makes sense for our team, we'll explore it."

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.

Marty can't be re-signed. Even if he was willing to play less than 20 games (which he isn't). Who wants to see Marty ride the bench to end his career in NJ? He's run his course here, let him go somewhere else.

We have two #1 goalies - what team gives up on that situation willingly?

No. Otherwise he doesn't stay here after the trade deadline

I can't tell who or what you're making fun of here. DeBoer? Lou? Other posters? It surely can't be me.

@TGfireandice: Apparently DeBoer didn't feel some players were giving their all today. Mentioned them having day off yesterday.


@TGfireandice: After he was done yelling, DeBoer left ice and slammed door on bench behind him.


Patty also practicing per TG.


@TGfireandice: While I was watching what was going on with Gelinas, Pete DeBoer just ripped the team concerning today's practice. I heard "It's a disgrace"

Not surprised PDB gets pissed. If they make playoffs, he's extended for sure. Now...there's doubt.

Self preservation for PDB. He knows they're a fingernail away from being eliminated so he wants to project to Lou that he still cares, he's still cracking the whip, nose to the grind, practice hard nomatter what.

They had optional practices for what felt like the past friggen month. Little late to be calling them out on being lazy considering his approach to it seemed to facilitate it.

There's guys he's probably fed up with too...Ryder and Brunner for sure (he's scratched Brunner and has called them both out on their long scoring droughts).  Brunner has 2 goals and 8 points in his last 24 GP, Ryder has 1 goal and 8 assists in his last 33 GP.  When you look at the number of forwards that haven't produced lately (either through poor play or rotten luck), it's actually kind of amazing the Devils hung around as long as they have.

I don't think there's anything more to it other than some guys probably DO feel like it's over at this point, and it showed in practice.  Nothing wrong with Pete cracking the whip, though it might be academic by tonight anyway.

I like that Pete did that. Even if it's to save his own ass, at least he's showing some emotion.

Would've liked to hear about this after blowing 2 or 3 straight games in the last two minutes, not now when the season is all but over. Too little, too late.

If DeBoer wanted to make points with the press and fans he could've had a practice tantrum after those losses.  The idea that this is a job-saving thing is ridiculous.

I see where '7' is coming from but I agree this is not a job-saving thing. If Pete is so cunning he wouldn't have waited until now to make this point. He would have been sending a message for weeks now.
