Deboer can say all he wants about Marty earning this start, but I don't think there's anyone in the organization who looks at the situation and calls Marty the starter. This start comes down to that there was a chance it would be his last home game. No matter what happens tomorrow, I think Cory has 4 of the next 5 after the deadline. If the Devils have any interest in the playoffs, it's gotta be all Cory.

 

Fine, but it isn't clear that Cory is either. The game breakdown don't tell me that.

 

Thanks to Scott Cullen for this link here. Look at the top and look at the bottom. Really kind of funny isn't it. I'm very worried how the rest of this season goes...and the future of the organization if it comes close to how I have written the rest of the year will go.

I think Lou will cut his deals tomorrow. Brodeur to the Blackhawks to me is likely.

Devils could retain or take back an existing contract. It's doable. Unlikely perhaps but doable.

I've heard Bickell's name bandied about. I want no part of that contract.

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:

The idea that Lou backed out because he was pissed is ridiculous. If this trade ever did exist, a much more likely scenario is that Minny backed out after getting tired of waiting on Lou. However, my guess would be that Minnesota made inquiries about a handful of goalies around the league and then took their best deal.

Detroit is not a contender.  

 

Yeah, it seems like some people are suffering from the "Detroit Effect" where because they are so used to Detroit being good they automatically assume they are a contender this year. Detroit is a borderline playoff team. Now they are missing Zetterberg and are dealing with an injured Datsyuk and Weiss.

This. Bryz is a better goalie for them at this point. Maybe if Lou worked faster they take Marty instead, but they got a better player.

Does anyone else think the Islanders may be the best destination for Marty and his plans to play next season? Obviously, MTL is up there, but that would have to mean Price has a serious groin issue or something.

I really think Lou can not find a trading partner that is willing to give anything of value, otherwise he would have moved MB30 ahead of all these goalie trades and signings.

Will Lou move him regardless as a thank you is the question to me.

Why?  What can he really do for the 'Hawks at this point?

Posted this to the other thread, but the Habs acquired Dubnyk.  One less destination for Marty.
