I dunno if Anthony said anything to the media, i doubt it, but Marty claims that Anthony wanted him to play in Ottawa so he could stay at his dad's house, so that's probably what they are talking about.  You might've forgotten that because it's hard to keep track of the 'Where I'd play other than New Jersey' articles that have been penned by the media w/ direct quotes from Brodeur in the last 2 weeks.

A bit, like  a comedy bit? ... What were Anthony's comments?

 

Ha...just an intermission segment. Brodeur told the media that his twins want him to go to the Wild and Anthony wants him to come to Ottawa.

 

Fans in Ottawa were just laughing about that thought with him wanting to be a starter and not being good and all.

 

BTW...

 

From training camp:

 

 

“I’m just going to play this year,” Brodeur said after taking his training camp physical this morning at Prudential Center. “I’m not going to comment on ‘Yes, I will’ or ‘Yes, I won’t’ (retire). So, you can tell your friends around the league they don’t have to ask that question. I’m not going to tell anybody if I’m going to retire or not until I make a decision of coming back or not.” - See more at: http://blogs.northje...h.fUgxylOY.dpuf

Marty's still yapping.

 

But seriously, Randy Miller and, to a lesser extent, Chere are really milking this for all it's worth.  They obviously have nothing better to write about at this point.

Yes, and your point is?  Brodeur gives them fresh quotes on it every day.  If he didn't, Chere would just be rehashing the same nonsense - he's not, because Brodeur gives them 3 new things.

 

The irony is that I'd be way more upset if Brodeur were still good and talking like this.

Nothing major about the discussion, but rather the Sens fans' reactions to the idea.

Congrats Marty, you want to be a starter and won't accept anything less. Only problem is you are a sieve, so no one cares.

Poor Martin Brodeur. Never go full Brett Favre.

Seriously all that's missing is Pittsburgh to somehow import him as the starter and him to beat the Devils like a drum the way Favre did the Packers his first year as a Viking :P

Can anyone else see Brodeur on the Islanders next year? He fits in nicely with the goalies they've had this year.

Well that could satisfy Brodeur requirement

 

a) playing more games than he has this season

 

but does not satisfy requirement

 

b) playing on a very good team

 

So Islanders are out for now...

Even casual baseball fans know that batting average defines how good a player is (I mean it doesn't, but let's assume that it does).  They have no idea that save percentage defines how good a goalie is.  That's what it comes down to - simple ignorance of the basic stats.  

 

If Jeter were hitting .220 in June, a lot of Yankee fans would say, oh, he'll turn it around, he's Derek Jeter.  But Brodeur with a .903 SV% which is basically the equivalent - fans don't realize that there's anything wrong.  Part of this is because baseball is a game of failure whereas hockey goalie is a game of successes - any fan can point to 'great saves' a goalie makes.  This is how Mike Vernon won a Conn Smythe trophy and how Grant Fuhr went to the Hall of Fame.

 

(As a sidenote, as a Yankees fan and Devils fan, it's great the number of championships I've witnessed, but watching Jeter and Brodeur go through parallel declines has been really tough to take.  At least one will be gone at the end of this calendar year.)

 

I have a decent amount of friends that watch almost every game and still think Brodeur deserves to be the #1 and that he isn't finished. Like NJDevs4978 said, for a lot of people, their love and respect for Brodeur clouds their judgement.

 

This all speaks to how damn hard it is to 'scout goalies' just by eye. The difference between an elite goalie and an average one is you get around 1.5 saves more from the elite than the average, per 100 shots...or in Brodeur's case, 3 saves per 100 shots. That's really hard to see and keep in mind.

 

He's certainly 'protected' since NJ give up so few SA. Imagine how bad it'd be if he saw 33 pucks a night...then I wager we'd be hearing a different tune.

It adds up quick though:  Schneider faces about 24.7 shots per 60 minutes, and Brodeur faces about 25.6 per 60.  So about 100 shots per four games.

 

So basically, it averages to about 3 extra GA per 240 minutes (four games and roughly 100 shots) when Marty's on the ice...when a team like the Devils struggles to score consistently, those extra 3 GA hurt.  Of course it's not like it's ever this steady (not like a guy who scores 41 G in 82 GP scores every other game throughout the year), but it still gives you an idea that Marty being a lesser puck-stopper than Cory is definitely noticable.  Also sucks that Marty's .914 in his last 7 GP (about league average) now qualifies as some turning-back-the-clock hot-streak in some fans' eyes, and is somehow definitive proof that Marty's still got it.

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 agree...but this is exactly my point: when you go through the numbers, it's easy. Most fans don't do that and if they do, they check the W-column. Just by watching NHL-goalies play it's hard to pinpoint who's actually better, because the different is quite small even over time. With skaters it's easier to tell, but goalies are trickier.

If this team misses the playoffs again (and we know there's a VERY good chance that it will), I think you're going to see some changes.  I think even with the 2012 run, I don't think Lou is comfortable missing the playoffs three out of four seasons.

 

I've posted this already, but the good news is if Lou really wants to make changes, he can.  Exactly three players are signed beyond 2015-16:  Zajac, Henrique, and Clowe.  No truly disastrous, hard-to-move contracts on the books.  Of course, whether you trust Lou to make the right moves is a different debate, but this is not a team with several underperforming players tied up in high-priced, long-term deals.
