As for insiders, we can have this debate a million times, but it's quite simple:  only believe people who have a reputation for being reliable.  Sometimes the unreliable will be correct (ZGF's claim that Jagr was touring the Pru Center, e.g.), but most of the time it won't be.

 

In this instance I would give people a pass for not completely dismissing it.  He is an employee of NHL network (or at least purports to be), has a decent amount of followers, and I haven't seen him tweet other unfounded rumors.  So it was plausible that he stumbled onto something.  Fool me once....

I guess we're officially sabotaging our own season to make Marty happy then. This settles it

This could be Marty's last home game. I can't pissed about him starting this one for that reason. He better play well, we need these points.

If they aren't 100% sure this is his last game and this is his home sendoff, he can't be playing

Could be a potential showcase for somewhat interested GM's?

 

Who knows

honestly, it'd be better for that if he didn't play. Have his last game be the good Islanders game. He could very easily pull one of his 4 goals on 18 shot specials versus a good team

 

Plus I think trying to win a game versus a team in front of us is *slightly* more important than a showcase for a trade for a 3rd rounder

He is obviously going to try to win the game.  Throw all the trade talks aside, if this was a couple months back....after Corey's game against the Sharks, it wouldn't be crazy to start Marty for this one

Clearly the Devils are:

1. Giving him his proper sendoff at home

2. Showcasing him to interested GMs

 

It all makes PERFECT sense if you ask me.

Marty doesn't need showcasing, that's a poor justification.

 

If this is his last send-off game, great.  It's still lessening the team's chances at two very important points.  I don't like it.

It's not uncommon for teams playing back-to-backs for the coach to have the opponent face two different keepers.....

If Marty looks great tomorrow and we get the W....no chance we go back to him Thursday?!?

Yes it would be crazy. If you're trying to win the game, you don't play arguably the worst goalie in the league in 2 out of 3 games

Except it's not a back to back. Back to backs are games two straight days. This is a home and home.

Hopefully no because again, we're trying to win and brodeur, even if he's good once, is terrible on average
