I think this has been my least favorite year as a Devils fan. From the start before the season with the Kovy nonsense, to the whole new owners debacle, to the goal song nonsense and now to this non-stop Marty nonsense and to a group of lackluster players of several who I just don't like. By far my least favorite year.
'88-'89 was worse for me. After the magic of '88, the playoff run, and having actual expectations, '88-'89 had a real WTF feel to it...and of course, hearing "same old Devils" over and over again that year wasn't fun.
And that first half of '10-'11 was brutal.
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.
