I saw this on TG's blog:

 

The green jacket had been presented to Brodeur following the game by defenseman Marek Zidlicky. A recently-started tradition to honor the team’s player of the game in a winning effort, Zidlicky had received the jacket for his overtime goal in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Florida. Goaltender Cory Schneider had been the first to receive it – from assistant coach Mike Foligno – following his 1-0 win over Dallas on Thursday. - See more at: http://blogs.northje...h.1yj16RjI.dpuf

 

 

I don't recall the Devils ever doing this or anything like it. Does anyone? I know a few teams do it like the rangers with their dumb hat.

I'd like to see this jacket.  Is it a green jacket like the Masters jacket? Or is it a 90s, satin looking green Starter button up jacket? :boogie:

If you go to Martin Brodeur's facebook page, it shows a picture of him in it, talking to his son I think.

A lot of teams have similar traditions, the Bruins had a suit or jacket of their own during their SC year. The Penguins/Caps had a hard hat and a helmet respectively the year they were on 24/7.

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

I think we roll our eyes at the Rangers' tradition because it's part of that whole "bright lights", "Broadway" BS they like to brainwash themselves with.

 

What's funny is that I only recently realized that MSG's not on Broadway, it's actually between Eighth and Seventh Avenues...

Really?

 

What made you just realize now?  They will latch onto anything NYC/NYC related

I totally agree with this.. The players are real dudes just like us, and they want to have fun with the game.. I think that for too long Lou prevented things like this (his whole "it's about the team, not the individual" schtick) while other teams developed fun traditions.. I think it goes a long way with today's NHL player

Yup

 

It is definitely something fun for the guys, and is totally anti-Lou

 

I imagine when LL rides off into the sunset, we will start seeing more fun things with the team as a whole.  The Marketing team may be able to do their job, etc.
