I don't think there was a Marty to Minnesota deal. He was announced as the starter for tonight's game yesterday. You simply do not start a goalie you are going to trade, especially your "backup" as the case may be, for fear he may be injured. If there was any chance of a deal getting done, he wouldn't be starting. 

 

As far as I read, the rumors of the deal between the Devils and Wild surfaced AFTER it was announced he would be starting. It simply doesn't make any sense. 

 

Especially since Marty played so well in his last start, let that be how he is remembered by your fan base and let that be the last impression of those looking to trade for him. You don't throw him out there against Detroit and risk not only injury, but risk him being exposed as slower and less effective than he might otherwise be perceived. 

 

Its just common sense.

TG reported that Minnesota had inquired about Marty.  What exactly that means is difficult to determine, but it certainly means at least there was some smoke.  I agree with what others have speculated that Lou did not like what Minnesota was offering.  Minnesota gave up a fourth for Bryz, so I can't imagine that what they offered for Marty was much better, maybe a third. 

 

EDIT:  Well, how about this to stir the pot:

 

Randy Miller @RandyJMiller 28s

Brodeur’s not going to Minnesota. How about Chicago? Blackhawks pro scout Dennis Bonvie will attend tonight’s #Devils-Red Wings game.

How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

Yeah, cuz the Chicago scout came all the way to NJ just to see Marty.  I can see them looking at a player on Detroit as well. 

 

Believe it or not, I think the most valuable players on our forward core are the Bernier - Gionta - Carter trio, since they bring the tenacity, experience, and A playoff resume that most younger, inexperienced teams don't have.

Alot people in here doing a lot of speculating- too much true detective for you!

Not one credible source said this was a done deal, it was all speculation started by a hack who just tries to guess at deals and maybe strikes on one in a blue moon.

Now, if you said minny inquired about Marty and there were talks ongoing thati can believe but I do not buy for one second the line of reasoning that:
A) a deal was finalized pending Marty waiving
B) Marty wanted to start one last game in red and black before waiving.
C) Lou allowed/told PDB to start Marty for said reason
D) once Lou saw all of the media speculation on this decided to call Minnesota to nix the deal.
E) within hours Minny turned around and had a deal done for bryzgalov.

It's just too many guesses without any evidence for me. Marty still may be moved but I think this all started because one guy wanted to jump the gun to say he had it first and a bunch of people followed. Unfortunately that's the world now with twitter.

That's great.  Speculation on Devils tix this week is worse than speculating on the NYSE during the great depression.

I think the speculation that the deal fell through because of a leak is Ludacris. Do you honestly fvcking believe Lou would tank the deal because of that? All it does is hurt our team if It was a beneficial deal to us.

 

He's not Tarantino.

this made lol

I'm assuming the fact that it's capitalized means it was autocorrected, which makes it funnier that it autocorrected to a rapper's name rarther than the actual word.

I find it hard to imagine Chicago and Detroit trading.  Even putting aside the blood rivalry it's pretty rare when two contenders make a big deal.


Marty isn't the only tradeable player on the Devils by a longshot either.

this "Brodeur's last home game" nonsense was the single greatest marketing ploy the Devils EVER came up with....much credit to the PR dept for doing something for once :lol:

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

It makes even less sense to me that they would start the obviously inferior goalie in such a big game.  Giving him one last home game at least is some sort of justification.

Detroit and Chicago are also not competing for the same division anymore. Makes it easier to get over bad blood if it may not immediately affect our place in the standings.

I don't believe it and you are insane if you do. Two of those mentioned are awful.
