1. Brodeur isn't going anywhere...no surprise that Louie baby hung him out there as "trade bait" to say, "hey pal, ya see this? You aren't worth anything...anywhere...so sit down...shut up....and accept your role"

2. No offensive help on the way.  Very unlikely to happen.  Not a Lou thing to do and no one left who would be a "Lou trade" kind of guy.

 

Time to accept what we have and make chicken salad out of chicken sh!t and hope we can sneak into the playoffs by some miracle.

As crazy as it is, I wouldn't be surprised if this happened at this point....

 

2014-15 may be yet another media circus

 

If Lou does this, he loses some cred as far as I'm concerned.  There's no way he or anyone else on the Devils can pitch that in a way that makes it sound like a good move.   

 

Can't say not getting Gaborik bothers me, though there's a part of me that would've been intrigued has Lou made a move to get him.

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.

#30 FOREVER!

Why do people act like Lou does nothing to attempt to add scoring? Have you already forgotten about Kovalchuk? It isn't Lou's fault he left.

Surprised that no quality d have been moved yet today. With Phillips re-signing there might be some demand for a defenseman. I hope Lou at least dangles some of ours out there.

Not saying it is.  Simply saying: for today's intents and purposes, nothing is coming to save us from the depths of offensive obscurity.

 

It's ok. Don't cry.

Lou may offer #30 a deal for next season.....at 2 milion.

 

Lou always lets players see what is out there...and then when it's nothing, in this case, he'll give Marty  a lowball offer he cant refuse.

It's Lou's fault that he thinks Ryder, close & brunner are replacements for Kovi & zack!

Can you not instigate for once?

 

Anyway..bracing for a disappointing conclusion here.  90 minutes to go.

He had Kovalchuk, so his replacement for "Zack" wasn't so shocking. He did the best with what he could when Kovalchuk left a year into his FIFTEEN YEAR CONTRACT. He added Ryder, Jagr, Brunner, and Clowe. It isn't a superstar but you're a fvcking idiot if you say Lou doesn't do anything to attempt to add scoring.

In my completely unqualified and unprofessional opinion, I bet the Vanek deal is holding things up.  Once that goes...the rest will fall.
