He had one terrific good 10-game run from 10/26 to 11/25, and it was a lot of fun to watch for sure...probably his last hurrah, as far as playing well goes for a decent stretch goes.  He's been pretty bad otherwise. 

 

I don't see that.   He is used to playing everynight and he has to adjust to not being the guy anymore (which is the issue).   I don't think there is a goalie I would rather have down the stretch.  Especially, if he is looking to prove he still has some gas left in the tank for other teams next season.

Welcome to 1998.  God, that Barenaked Ladies 'One Week' song sure is annoying, huh?  And how's about the President and Monica Lewinsky?  Crazy stuff.

 

Marty's issue is that he is bad and has not been good for 3 years.

can we stop with the "wins" arguement. 29 teams just showed what they think of broduer as an NHL backup. thats reality hitting home. yet he comes off the same day , after getting EMBARRASSED on the national stage, and plays a power move. just unreal!


In his mind he sees it as Lou refused to trade him more than nobody else wanted him. And maybe there's some truth to that if they've gone back to bending over backwards for him.

..to be fair CR.. is this the situation that Marty signed up for 2 years ago?
I'm not saying Marty's right, but if there's animosity between Lou & Brodeur because of it.. can't you somewhat see Brodeur's point? He signed on thinking Lou would honor Henberg's contract. Johan & Marty signed roughly at the same time.

If Moose was still on the team this year.. does Marty have 30 starts, or 60?


Marty's seen Lou buy out guys before including White and Pandolfo.

I wish he would just accept the team cannot afford to wait for him to hit on a good streak. Streaky is not an option - it's his job to work around that not the teams job to be patient with him.

and I HATE that quote -- I'm not going to be mad at Cory I'm going to mad an SOMEONE ELSE.

YOURSELF YOU DUMB sh!t! BE MAD AT YOURSELF! :rant:


Sure Marty isn't that bad -- but not so bad isn't an option on ANY professional sports team much less a struggling one.

Inconsistent has NEVER been an option - why must the team be patient wiht his finding his groove? Why shoudl the present make way for the faded past? It's illogical. I HATE how he's saying he refuses to accept personal responsibility.

CONSISTENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE DEVILS WAY!!! It's not some big surprise. <_<

PK, that quote made me lose it- 'I don't blame Cory, I blame someone else'. Are you kidding me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Look in the mirror you selfish prick. And it really kills me to write that about OUR guy, OUR all-time great... But I call 'em like I see 'em and Marty is being an a$$hole.

I'm getting sick of hearing about this.

Not that I think we shouldn't be talking about it -- we're fans, of course we love talking about our favorite team. And it is an interesting dilemma from an armchair GM's perspective.

 

It just sucks when a true legend gets close to his last days.

That's what I am getting sick of.  WE should be talking about it, sure.  But Marty needs to stop talking about it.  Enough is enough.  We need to move forward and move on and that is exactly why I was disappointed when he was not moved out of town this week.  If we want to make the playoffs or even come close, our BEST CHANCE is not with Martin Brodeur in net...that's the end of the story.

i feel bad for Marty here. a lot of this stems from the outdoor game when he was hung out to dry on all those 2 and 3 on 1s.

 

lies. Most of those were awful goals. He played horrifically. Devils were up 3-1 and never should've lost that game

 

"I don't blame Cory, I blame someone else"

 

BLAME YOUR fvckING SELF FOR ONCE FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO STOP A GOD DAMN SHOT

 

If Martin Brodeur was a Buffalo Sabre this season he'd have 3 wins MAXIMUM. The Devils...a team on pace to score less than 200 goals is somehow averaging 3+ for Brodeur and the only explanation is absolute bizarre dumb luck. It has nothing to do with his presence in net or puckhandling.

This.

 

I think Marty's more angry than ever now. On-top of being held hostage for another 19 games, there's this newfound consensus out there that; "Marty wasn't traded, because nobody wanted Marty" -and I think that makes him livid. I think 2 years ago he was using the option of playing on another team as leverage.. I don't think he ever really negotiated with other GM's. His quotes this year however make it seem like he's eager to get to July 1st.. because he's done in NJ.

 

"What might impact Wednesday’s 3:00 pm NHL trade deadline? "We’ll see." Brodeur said. "That’s something I can’t control. I’d love to control it more, trust me.. because I’d like to play more. Wednesday will come and go, and we’ll see one way or the other. But that most likely will be out of my hands."

 

..that speaks volumes to me, in the sense of Brodeur's thinking as to: what exactly took place two days ago. I know alot fans were speculating that Brodeur would've been side-by-side at Lou's desk working the phones, but that was never going to be the case. I really feel that Brodeur doesn't believe Lou may have done his absolute best in dealing him.. and now, (as ThreeCups said earlier) he'll go to any other team in 4 months, just to try and prove a point to Lou that; 'you can't control me!' type defiance.

This is a shame. I've been one of the more understanding ones about Marty's situation and how hard it must be to accept that your amazing run has come to an end, but now he's coming off as downright delusional.

Glad to see you still have your head up your a$$ Tri.  

 

Injuries aside, he has done a very good job in keeping a team that can't score competitive the past few years.  

The only thing he has been guilty of here is trying to live up to an impossible standard that he himself has set.

I don't think anyone here is expecting him to be as good as he was in his prime. Hell, I was only hoping he'd be league average and he's not even that. He's among the worst goalies statistically in the league. That's the problem.

The stats are pretty bad of recent, Earlier in the season he was leading the league is Save % and GAA.  The difference now is that he is has collected rust because PDB is using Schnieder more and he is out of sync.  

 

My point was he now has something to prove and I think, based on history, he will rise to the occassion.   That was all.

Stop making sh!t up. I don't even think Brodeur's numbers were better than Cory's...even at Brodeur's highest, and Cory's lowest.

Yep -- that's what I was going to say.  I was actually content with average.  A little less than average isn't good but I'd take that even -- but when you add the self-righteous blather and finger pointing, then some sort of action has to be taken.
