Only Devils fans would piss and moan for 5 years about not being in an outdoor game and when they finally get one, they are suddenly "shocked" by the high prices and piss and moan about the poor sight lines and it being cold.
Not everyone is "pissing and moaning". For a regular-season game, it IS a lot of money. For another, yeah, the poor sightlines and likely very chilly weather is deal-breaker for some.
Big difference between wanting to see your team play in one of these things, and actually WANTING to be there to witness it. I think most Devils fans simply wanted to see the Devils play in one of them while Marty was still on the team, for various reasons. I just don't think they necessarily wanted to be there physically while it's happening.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
