Good move by Lou. Cut your losses, don't waste anymore of this deadline day discussing Brodeur (no return was probably anything near worth it), address our offense.

i wouldn't say that. couldn't give him away for nothing so it had to be mutually beneficial


I think I can make a case that Marty's current value is effectively nothing, so you could give him away for that.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

He's not retiring unless he gets no offers.  And the Devils will still think they need a .900 backup goalie so round and round we go.

 

I don't see Marty retiring even if he gets no offers. I don't know if I could see him in an SKA St. Petersburg jersey (or any other league) but I think he would wait for a deal next year (a dilemma which wouldn't occur because if needed Lou will sign him as a backup).

Serious question regarding Marty/idea of trading him: who exactly would WANT an old .900 SV% goalie who is crying for playing time? I can't really fault Lou for not moving him if a market doesn't exist for him.

Looks like a salary dump that we hopefully got for peanuts. Don't mind this trade, I like it if this is 1 of 2 or 3 trades Lou's planning to make..

The only way i'll even remotely like this is if Salvador or Volchenkov went back to Carolina. To take on a player that is 31 and 3 more years on his deal at 4.7 mil who has 9 goals in the last 71 games is a terrible trade. I hate this deal, it is fvcking garbage.

Maybe no loktionov means josefson can finally play. But why another Rightwing? I thought we needed a left wing. And at least Bernier isn't the biggest minus on the team now! :)
