Let's hope Pete sees that Cory is our true number one.

 

He's started 6 of the last 9 I think. He's the starter.

All six is quite much. Agreed all in all everything was horrible.

Yea but all 6 goals still should have been stopped. The scoring chances those goals were scored on weren't great scoring chances.

Marty had a bad game I totally agree.. And for something that he got because he's the team legend, I really expected better of him

That said, the loss is on the team.. We lose with Cory in net simply because they had too many odd man rushes.. Come on, we all knew that putting Marty in was not giving us the very best chance to win.. We gambled with the sentimental move and it burned us but still can't argue that Marty didn't deserve it

We got the early lead and when the Rags began to make it a fasted paced game, their type of game, we tried to match it rather than frustrating them with ours

 

This team doesn't really have an identity Colin because it really doesn't have a cast that can play a specific "game".  What is our game, really that is so different from what others do in the NHL.  This team gives up so many odd man rushes because it's so old, especially at "key" areas.  Both Zidlicky and Salvador get huge minutes and time on the PP and PK respectively.  As great as Zidlicky has been this year offensively, he's good for several odd-man rushes against every game, he has no recovery speed anymore.

 

Jagr and Elias really worry me down the stretch this year.  This team relies far too hard on them in minutes and production.  Even guys like Zubrus and Ryder looked slower than usual on their skates today.

 

A team with this much age, inferior talent on the forwards corps and an aging defenseman as captain who get treated with kid gloves while your prized young defenseman is marooned in the AHL is never going to perform consistently or be able to play a full game/hold leads.

What was really sad about a couple of those "odd man rushes" the Rangers scored on was that they were actually even man rushes; they weren't 2 on 1 breaks, they were 3 on 1 breaks.

C'mon now, whats with your agenda against Brodeur? Every time Brodeur doesn't perform you're ready for him to retire. He had a bad game, we know it, he knows it and the Rangers fvcking know it. It happens, Cory was just as liable to give up five goals. Does it suck? Yeah, but at the end of the day it was just two points in the regular season, and hopefully it will make PDB that Schneider is the obvious choice.

I usually hate PDB and trash talk him, but he did everything right this game.
He played the Marty card, called the time out at the right time, and put Cory in for the 3rd.

This all falls on the players. The Rangers got Marty out of position and scored on him - I've seen it happen to Marty too many times since the last lockout, he just isn't the same player.

On top of this, the rest of the team played like ass. 6 unanswered goals? Terrible.
They were making bad decisions, couldn't pass for sh!t, and way too many odd man rushes given away.
Zidlicky may be a great offensive defenseman, but I'm sick of seeing him think he's a forward and crash the net. He needs to protect the point as a defence man should.

I'm still happy I was there for the outdoor experience, I wouldn't change that for the world. It's time to move on to the next game, and I hope the front office are formulating plans to right the ship next season.

The silver lining is Cory is now unquestionably #1.

There is absolutely no doubt about that now. None.

I dunno how much stock you can put in a game where the conditions were terrible (it was pouring snow by the start of the 2nd which is when things went super south), but Brodeur looked like he belonged in the ECHL today, I don't know how you can argue that. 6 goals on 20 shots, I don't care how bad your d is, you stunk up the joint 

 

Lundqvist did too in the beginning, but he put it together later. Marty got worse

Now that I look around the web and read some comments it's clear to me this is not that big of a deal to people. Six (!) outdoor games this season and ours isn't even the only one played at this venue. Sure, we're going to remember this, and so are the Rangers fans, but for fans around the league it was just another game between teams they don't really care about and I bet a year (two max) from now most people aren't even going to remember the score. So yeah, the talk about embarrassing the franchise forever and dooming the club's image is just blowing this way out of proportion - it's not like this was a 3rd or 4th round playoff game.

 

That being said, Marty did have a terrible game, so did our defense and those guys picked a really bad time to do that, cause all the Devils fans wanted a good experience they could remember for years to come and instead, they don't want anything to do with this game anymore. But that's about it.

Didn't even read the post just saw the title and want to nominate this for the worst thread in the history of this board. That is all, because the rest of this silliness isn't even worth my time.

Brodeur let in a weak second goal just when the momentum was going our way. That's really the only thing that really leaves a sour taste in my mouth about his play today. As far as our horrible defense goes: well, it would have been nice if Marty could have come up with at least ONE big save. But he didn't. They scored on just about every ridiculous odd man rush they got and Marty was certainly not going to save the team's ass today. It was one of the worst defensive displays for our team this century.

 

Putting this in perspective relaxes me though. Sure, it was a big stage, but it's still just one regular season game. Let the Rags celebrate today - this is their victory - but it's also the last thing they're going to win all year.

Which seems to be the norm with him now.. 1 softie pr game. Today he could possibly have stopped 1-2 more as well. I pray he retires sooner rather then later.

'7' embarrassed himself and the board today.

 

'7', you'll get your wish soon enough, and Brodeur will be gone.  I think a lot of Devils fans at this point want to see the same thing...they're just not so damned vicious and spiteful about it.  There's just no justification for the level of hatred you spew towards him.

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.

Yeah right here, if this game is 3-1 at the intermission.. Who knows what happens. That token softie is killing me.

'7' has been spewing sh!t about Brodeur for 6+ years that I can remember but the reality is Brodeur has been a below average goalie for 3.5 of the last 4 seasons. And while this rant might be over-dramatic (as per usual), he Devils are putting themselves in a whole again with Brodeur's sh!t play.

 

Maybe it is the way Lou or Pete or Cory or the team has been programed to talk about Brodeur, but he has been very bad this year, like last year, like the year before etc. It must be frustrating for Cory to lie through his teeth and say Brodeur has been playing well. It simply isn't true. The sad part is I think Pete actually believes it. He said the other day he isn't a stats guy. Wtf does that mean? Do you pick a goalie by their 'legacy'. If you were a stats guy, you'd see a goalie with the best save percentage in the NHL over the last 3 years and 4th best this season, and another who has been in the 40s this year and the past years (currently sits at a save percentage below .900!). That's really really really awful.

 

I hate when Brodeur is in net and has a bad game and we analyze which goals were good goals or which were bad goals. Where was there a deflection and where did the defense leave him out to dry. Guess what, Brodeur has the luxury of playing behind a top 5 team defense and one that is always in the bottom in shots against. So today he found out what it is like for Ryan Miller or Jonathan Bernier and James Reimer or other teams that give up countless shots. He wouldn't survive on those teams. He takes his .900 save percentage there and he gives up 5+ goals every 3rd game.

 

No analyzing. No excuses. Just stop pucks. When Cory won the other day 2-1, did anyone discuss how many breakaways he faced or what not? Didn't have to because he makes a lot more saves. Bad breaks happen, but notice how we aren't talking about bad bounces or weird deflections with Cory. It just doesn't happen with good goalies very often.

 

I respect Brodeur and won't trash him like others will on this board (not many at all), but he is finished. The worst part is the Devils have a top 5 NHL goalie. This is worse for Cory than Vancouver. Luongo was/is still a very good goalie. Brodeur is not. There is no nice way to put it. The Devils have to put the name aside. It cost them last year (wasn't a better option at least). There is no reason why it should cost them a playoff spot now.

 

I said in the chat today that I would go with Cory until it seems obvious that he needs a break. If that's all the remaining games until the Olympics and then getting him refreshed and restarting right after the break. Points are too critical right now. I don't think Cory playing the second half of a back-to-back is a worse option than a fresh Brodeur right now.

Maybe he'll get the April 10 at Ottawa, as his last game in Canada...

Yes! Was going to post something like this. 

 

The comments I'm reading outside of this board are mostly about how there's too many outdoor games. If they are directed at the Devils it's "Marty should retire" or something along those lines.

 

No one is saying the Devils and Brodeur embarrassed themselves and should never have a special event again.
