Another point...I saw two articles today stating along the lines of "he's not washed up, he actually has more wins that Schneider." That's just terrible journalism. The Devils have scored 1.85 GPG in Schneider's decisions, compared to 3.03 GPG in Marty's decisions. I can't believe the split is that high. But journalists won't look at that side of the story.
There is a large portion of die hard fans and the MSM that sight wins and GAA. the NHL's Dan Rosen actually said how important the tandem is by combining their GAA together and saying it is 5th best in the league! Firstly, a useless stat to compare goalies from one team to another, and secondly why combine a 1.92 average and 2.49 average to make your point.
As for the goal support, I went through those stats the other day:
Brodeur 91 GF in 30 games.
Schneider 61 GF in 33 games.
Tonight was Brodeur's 5th win of the season when giving up 3 or more goals. Cory has 0 such wins. Cory actually only has 3 wins all season when giving up 2 goals.
To add to that, Schneider had 4 losses when giving up 1 goal or less in regulation.
"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.
"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.
