So a friend of mine just texted me and said Marty and a 4th to Montreal for Big Gionta. Didn't say where he saw it just that it was unconfirmed . Take it with a grain of salt.

 

cool. well i'm sure whatever he's got has twitter and TSN beat

No good team, or team on the cusp, will play a guy with a .899 save percentage in 10 of their last 19 or 20 games.

nowhere did I say good team. For that matter nowhere has Marty or anyone said that he'd only want to move to a good team. This 8-9 team list that's being speculated is anyone's guess. It could just as easily include Calgary buffalo and Nashville before Chicago minny and Anaheim.

sure Brodeur would play a lot more under Price, plus Budaj as also outplayed him

Maybe, but I doubt it has much to do with the team meeting and practice. Probably a lot to go over from last game. It was a win, but it wasn't very pretty.

it's kind of sad - you have every analyst under the sun chiming in that he's done - he's washed up - he's NOT the starter anymore nor will he be a starter on ANY halfway decent team. he's lost his playing time here. his stats are some of the worst in the league. WHAT is he seeing that we don't see? okay, cool, he still thinks he's an elite goalie. but does he truly think the ENTIRE world is wrong here? will he see it as a slap in the face if the friggen islanders are the only team who ends up showing interest?

it's hard not to get a little annoyed with the guy because of his ego. of course it screams of "what have you done for me lately" but still - it's cringe worthy. i really really really had hoped marty could have bowed out gracefully and accepted his demise but if this gets ugly, this will leave a sour taste in a lot of fans mouths.

 

It's been said a lot here, but the same confidence needed to be a top athlete is what keeps these guys playing too long. He's spent 20 years believing he is the best and trying to never doubt himself. It's not easy to just turn that off and ride off into the sunset, especially when 2 years ago he was in the finals. It can't be easy for him to accept that that run was his last gasp, but it clearly was. This is where Lou and Deboer have to step in and make the decision. Start Schneider 95 percent of the time, give Marty his last 2 or 3 games, and then Lou has to make the tough decision and tell Marty they won't be re-signing him.

 

Also, I want to point out that for every inflammatory quote people take from Brodeur, there are telling ones that get ignored like when he was asked if he will play next year, and he said something a long the lines of  "we'll see. My heart says yes, but my body might not."  He sees some of it.

It can't be more of a sh!t show than Luongo getting pulled from practice to be told, he wasn't going to be traded.

I just don't see the point in going to a good team for a chance to win a 4th cup for Marty because if that does happen its going to happen with him on the bench the entire time.

No official confirmations (yet) but hearing NYR are prepared to trade Callahan, plus 1st rd pick and 2nd rd pick for Marty St. Louis. Close.

 

 This twitter thing is fun.

 

Anyone reccommend some reputable sources to follow on there to make deadline day more interesting?

That's a ton for St. Louis, who is still very productive...but signed only through next year, and kind of old.

Part of me is laughing at how much they are paying for a 38 year old. And part of me is scared cuz St. louis in my mind is one of the great active devil killers, much like Kris Versteeg.

Assuming St. Louis deal is finalized, I believe Tampa is looking at Callahan as a rental. No appetite for 6 years or $6M per. #Tradecentre

 

This would be insane for the Lightning.  A low first round pick and a second would essentially be the return for a guy like St. Louis.  They are a worse team this year with Callahan, who they evidently don't want to re-sign anyway.

This is a long shot but does anyone have a text alert service that's free and will give me trade alerts? I have a dumb phone (can't trust myself to not drain the battery if my phone could play games have an iPod touch for that.) and I'd like to know if anything is going on at work
