In fairness cgb6397, do you start this thread if Marty gives up five goals and looks bad today?
dr33 is right. If Marty wants more playing time, can't get it here, and decides he want to get it elsewhere, then that's how it goes. It's not like we're getting ripped off or robbed...we got to see him at his very best, for several years.
We have so many great Brodeur memories to reflect on...not sure how anyone can feel devastated by this. If (still a big if) he does get moved, it will be a sad day, and I'm sure it will hit me harder than I think it will, but I don't feel so nostalgic that I think Marty should start getting playing time at Cory's (and the team's) expense. Cory has earned the job even though it seemed like the team was fighting that inevitability. Like dr33, I've also posted on this subject many times, and all one has to do is look up other top-winning goalies to see that what Marty has done for one team is pretty much unheard of.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
