Most of this was around 2010, maybe into 2011. It was some wacky stuff.
Wow I'd forgotten that whole thing... He was sending PM's and then denying it when people mentioned it in the voting threads.
Yep, remember the active campaigning, which was indeed wacky, odd, and a bit scary to boot.
Tri def wins the 2014 award for calling someone a complete loon in the most delicate and diplomatic way possible.
DevilinLA (who lurks but never posts anymore, which is too bad, hope he starts up again sometime) used to do a Devils trivia contest, which was kind of fun...I had the lead for a while, until BCdevil blew past me like I was standing still (think he won by at least 5-6 points, I don't remember exactly). Anyway, most of us would answer correctly or incorrectly within an hour or so of DevilinLA posting the question. I think DinLA used to give people a 24-hour window or so to answer, then he'd post the correct answer, and award a point to whoever answered correctly first. SD would often post the correct answer AFTER DinLA had already posted the final answer and awarded the point. Something about it was both weird AND annoying (which pretty much sums up SD), and though everyone involved kept asking him not to do that, he not only kept doing it, but he'd simply ignore all of the requests to knock it off...never once acknowledged them from what I remember.
Anyway, re: trade talk...if the Devils trade Marty, then they have to trade for a backup goalie, as they don't have one that is currently capable of making starts in the NHL, and the Devils need to have a chance to win those games (even if it's only 4 or 5 of them). Wonder if Lou would pull the equivalent of a Terreri-for-Vanbiesbrouck type deal, though it would probably sting Marty to see that he's not worth much more than another team's backup at this point.
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.
