The real critical thing is that there don't seem to be many potential successors to the Brodeur throne.  Rask and Schneider got a super late start to their careers.  Luongo spent half his career on bad teams.  Lundqvist is excellent - the Rangers are going all-in-ish these next 2 years so we'll see if they manage a Cup.  The last two Calder winning goalies were Mason and Raycroft and teams have stopped drafting goalies in the top 10 of the NHL draft - there isn't a ready-made narrative for great goaltender anymore.

 

Gibson is very young and is starting his career with a very good team. 

 

One other thing that people aren't thinking of so far as where Marty might play is with one of the expansion teams, especially if one of them is in Quebec.

I don't believe the NHL is going to be expanding this season.  At least I haven't seen anything on that discussed publicly.

John Gibson has played 2 NHL games.  Talk to me when he has played 200.

Yeah, I'd think 2015-16 at the earliest.

Wasn't something about Seattle being all but official released earlier this season?  Or am I completely off base here.

For the most part, everyone seems to think Seattle and to a lesser extent Quebec are done deals. If it's true, I'd expect the NHL to make an official announcement at least a year before the team touches the ice. For example, Columbus and Minnesota were officially announced June 25th, 1997 and didn't start until the 2000-01 season.

Some of you guys are too much, it's not even worth discussing with people as delusional. I suggest some of you guys replace the crest on your jersey to a MB30 logo.

Here is another gem from brodeur today. He is basically blaming his poor performances on him not getting enough playing time in a row while saying that's the reason why Cory has done so well. Just leave already.

"I had my chance. I had some games. It's easy for him(DeBoer) to make switches but it's hard for a goalie to get on a roll when you don't play," Brodeur said. "You look at Cory and he's playing unbelievable right now. There's a reason. He's playing a lot."

Broduer though about stopping these types of quotes, but it keeps squeaking through.

So can Brodeur explain why Cory's numbers were better when Marty was getting most of the starts early in the year?

Oh Marty.

 

One more week guys, one more week tops of this bullsh!t.

 

Unless he runs his mouth all the way up to July 1st.  I'm hoping he becomes irrelevant once the Devils are done playing.

Why are we ignoring the part where he says he had his shot and he had some games? It looks like he's saying Corey capitalized and he (Marty) didn't.

He says that and then follows up with what I posted.  He keeps going where he first blames himself for a brief moment and then immediately follows it up with him blaming everyone else.  It's getting very irritating and he should just say something along the lines of "I didn't do that well and that is why I deserved the fewer starts."  Period.

Because he's making excuses.  Schneider didn't play well because he was playing a lot.  We can go through the schedule and find times when Schneider had sat out, got in a game, and immediately did well.  I'll give you a hint, it's way more often than Brodeur did that.

To piggyback onto this...it's the way he sometimes puts things that has me wishing that he'd just shut up.  That last little blurb basically came off as "Well, yeah, I did have my chance, and Cory IS playing well, but it's because he's getting lots of playing time now, and if I got that playing time..." 

 

So one more time:

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.

I think people's frustration with Marty are leading them to assign a level of malevolence to everything he says. It doesn't matter what he says, it will be picked apart for negative quotes regardless.

For example, no one seems interested in the quote where he says the devils are in outstanding hands with Schneider next season.

But then again he follows it up with that statement I wrote.  He is speaking out of both sides of his mouth.  He is pulling an MB.

 

Now I think MB on here is really Martin Brodeur.

Seeing the Devils not make the playoffs for a second straight season is hard on people too, and that is going to manifest itself in many ways. 

 

But Marty just seems to think he's entitled to play regardless of how good he is.  The other guy was better than him.  A lot better.  One guy was 18th in save%, the other one is 43rd.  What does Marty think...that PDB screwed him somehow?  That the coach shouldn't try to go with the guy who's playing better?  The ironic thing is, Marty seems to think he somehow should've gotten MORE playing time when he got way more than he ever really deserved.  He says it was hard for him, and I'm sure it was simply because of what he once was and no longer is (or ever will be again).  I can only imagine what it must have been like for Cory, who to his credit says all of the right things, but had to watch a guy get legacy starts at his expense, when he fully knows deep down inside he gives his team the better chance to win games.

At this point, Marty is a falling star trying to say anything to save face, whether it's for his own mental self preservation or for someone dumb enough to sign him this summer. I don't agree with what he says, but I also think he's not in his right mind when he's saying it. He's reeling because this wasn't how it was supposed to end. He was supposed to retire the triumphant hero, and now he's facing the reality of fading away.

 

If I can use one of SterioDesign's relationship analogies, it's like someone getting dumped who wasn't expecting it. They say a lot of things out of fear and jealousy. In Marty's mind, he would be just as good as he was if only he got another chance, and he doesn't realize Deboer gave him way more chances than he deserved this season. For some reason, he still thinks there's a couple of drops in the tank. These last 2 years sucked. I think he will be forgiven once some time has gone by, similar to the Niedermayer situation.
