You don't think Brodeur knows the Devils and has a nice advantage against them, either?
It's about Brodeur getting a chance to come back, beat you AND damage your playoff hopes. This isn't like Eddie Giacomin coming back. The Devils are going to need that game. If he all of a sudden turns into vintage Brodeur for one night out of, maybe, spite and circumstance? Some of you are acting like this couldn't happen.
If the Devils miss the playoffs, it'll be due to other factors overall. With the way this season has gone, if you don't think there's a possibility of Brodeur being the one to hammer the nail in....then let's talk afterward if/when this happens.
You're missing the tone of my post...I was telling mfitz that it's only one person is really expressing concern about one specific scenario that he is now attributing to "everyone". It wasn't knocking you.
I'll worry about it if it actually comes to pass. The one thing we know about Marty is that he's been inconsistent as hell the past two seasons. I think he's just as likely to get lit up as he is to have a big game against the Devils. At any rate, the Devils would be pretty mentally soft if they're afraid of 2014 Marty.

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.
