in the post-game #30 seemed pretty set on playing next year.  That's ok. 

I just dont see Lou moving him as the team needs him for this year, just in case

We didn't fall behind but we didn't move forward as I suspected.

 

Thanks Marty

 

Thanks Offense.

 

Marty had offensive support and he played well not having played for a month

 

Back to Cory.

Great that we got to open this mini-season against two sh!t teams and get some momentum going towards San Jose. If we can take them down, it'd be huge. Clowe is finally playing up to his potential, along with Henrique. Only forward that doesn't really have their game at full force right now is Zajac, not calling him out, but it's true. Hell, even Loktionov has looked good

Well that was a bit of an overstatement, but they played like garbage. The Islanders, on the other hand, 100% deserve the tag of a sh!t team. I almost feel bad for them.

Losing Tavares really kills that team.  It will get even worse once they deal Vanek.

In fairness to them, their approach might have been different if Vanek hadn't shot down their offer.  That's what worries me about Schneider...what if money isn't enough (I think Lou will make a very good offer)?  As we saw with Nieds, sometimes it really isn't about the money.

The good news is Cory doesn't have a brother in the NHL. He is playing relatively close now to his hometown, and the one NHL team in Massachusetts...well they have a top 3 goalie in the world locked up for ever.

 

Don't fvck this up New Jersey. One of the main reasons I want Marty gone. Cory has been around goalie drama for 3+ years now. He has deserved his own net for that many years. Time to finally give it to him distraction free.

 

I'll add one more thing. Marty continues to push the mantra, "I just want to play." By not trading him, Lou continues to put enormous pressure on Deboer to get Marty in to more games than he should.

Glad they actually won when I made a game day thread. I don't think my overall record is all that good lol

So happy to see Marty play well. I'm glad I went to the game, totally forget that Jagr had a chance to score 700 today so very cool to see some history as well.

I hope that wasn't Martys last game in a Devils jersey. I hope he ends up being ok with being a backup for one final season or just retires after this one.

I know I'm being sentimental but it would kill me to see him in any other jersey.

Clowe is finally playing up to his potential, along with Henrique. Only forward that doesn't really have their game at full force right now is Zajac, not calling him out, but it's true. Hell, even Loktionov has looked good

I think Zajac has been great over these last few months. The puck just won't go in for him.

I am not worried about Schneider leaving. As a goalie, if you have a secure starting job on on a consistently good team, more often than not he accepts an offer to stay, if a quality offer is made.

The big question will be does Schneider think this team will be a consistently good team in his prime years?  Is he concerned that he'll always have to hold the opposition to 2 goals or less?  Can Lou sell him on the team's future, especially when their most productive forward is a 42-year-old who doesn't figure to be here much longer than next season, if that?  Does Cory even like living and playing in NJ?  Only Cory knows the answers.
