Schneider. 

 

I would go with Brodeur. Marty is due to play a game, especially since we didn't exactly get on the roll I had hoped with Schneider in net for 3 straight. Also, we have a better chance to win against Tampa, so I would prefer Cory play that one.

 

No, he's not due to start.  He's the backup now, he's not really 'due' anything except one game of a back to back series and the occasional start.

I'd give Marty the Boston game and start a Schneider run again vs. Tampa. Give Marty a nice big game on a Saturday in Boston, against a strong Boston side. You know he'll play his heart out, maybe get some confidence back. A good showing, maybe with a win, would get the rest of team's heads in the right place. I think getting Marty a big win in Boston would be more of a good turnaround game than our 4-0 against the Rangers was (or wasn't, as we see now).

 

Putting Marty in on a "bla" game vs. the Lightning on a Tuesday, with likely only 12,000-13,000 people in attendance, it'll be more depressing than anything.

 

No, I don't think Marty's earned it or is owed anything for sentimentality's sake, but I do think you have to keep your backup's head and spirits and morale in the right place, just in case the moment comes when you need him. A couple years ago, we did so with Hedberg even, gave him the odd start now and then, even sometimes in pretty important games vs. Pittsburgh or the Islanders. 

 

I don't remember how long Fleury may have been injured last year, but similarly I thought the dosage of games the Penguins gave Vokoun during the shortened season was pretty reasonable to give Brodeur.

I'd go with # 30 in Beantown. Some will lean toward #35 with him being from MA

 

However the coach will know how well each keeper stacks up agains the B's and pick the best record guy as the starter

I would go with Schneider. With Marty taking the position he did before the game last night he set himself up for a win win situation. Cory plays well Marty remains a hero Cory plays bad Marty and is the saviour and if Marty has a bad game in Boston it's because he hasn't played.

 

That being said, Cory admits to his mistakes and play, that's good. If they don't play Schneider in Boston then that should deflate Cory. If Cory plays well against Boston he redeems himself if Cory plays poorly then it's Marty against TB. Boston will be had to beat no matter who we have in goal.

 

Go Devils and Schneider

I run Corey. Time to let him know you believe in him as the franchise guy. Not saying he needs to play every game by a long shot, but I don't like the idea of "benching" him for 1 bad game.

I think Marty will get the start. Granted, I haven't watched much of the B's this year, but they always were a gritty, heavy forecheck team. I would think that with Marty they have a better option to move the puck out of the zone quickly on dump ins.

Ugh, Marty's going to get lit up in Boston.  

Not that Cory wouldn't, necessarily, but Boston is a good team, and Marty's struggled against them the past few years.

 

We'll see, hope I'm wrong.
