I haven't found anything in all of this that shows that Lou is "concentrating" on trading Marty.

 

People read what they want to read.  It's in the media's interest to hype this Brodeur non-story (I put it at 20% he's dealt).

Sabres could pick before us not Lou's fault

 

I'm talking in general, not about Conacher. Conacher doesn't shoot enough to help a team that doesn't shoot the puck as it is. 

 

I was afraid of this happening even with 3 hours left. Lamoriello was going to be so wrapped up in Brodeur.

Cool that Weekes is embedded in Newark to watch Lamoriello at work - I can't wait to hear what he's going to have to say about the whole process when this is done.

 You haven't  found anything that says he isn't, either.

I do not like the fact that Brodeur could be taking any time away from Lamoriello trying to improve the team. All efforts have to be on offense today, not Brodeur. Lou has entertained Brodeur long enough here. That window is gone and it closed with Bryz going to MN.

Bazinga!

lol it's foolish to think that Lou is so wrapped up in trading Marty that he won't explore other trade options. The man has been an nhl gm for a quarter century I think he knows how to multitask.

That's it Lou...concentrate more on moving a backup goaltender then making the team better offensively.

This is shaping up to be a clusterfvck of a day. NYR get St Louis, Devils concentrate on trading a backup goaltender.


You're so annoying.

How much concentrating could it take? I don't really think too many teams are interested. I think Lou can balance that and try to get something done at forward.

I think Lou would look for a backup replacement if Brodeur gets dealt, but I have no doubt that Kinkaid could come in and at the very least, duplicate Brodeur's NHL numbers.

If Kinkaid wants any kind of NHL future, he better be able to!

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.

I'll be the one who complains, Hemsky is better than Ryder and Brunner, it would have been an upgrade.
