"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Think I gotta go with Edison...he's not openly wondering through the media if there's another state that will give him more time to invent the lightbulb next year.

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?

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.

Any poll that considers Bon Jovi to be more Jersey than Bruce Springsteen is dead to me.

The two semifinal matchups remind of the 2011 and 1996 Final Fours (men's basketball) - two heavyweights in one semifinal (Edison vs Brodeur), two surprises in the other semifinal (Bon Jovi vs Woodrow Wilson).

 

Honestly, I'd have to pick Edison over Marty.  I'm much more appalled that Jon Bon Jovi, who frankly sucks and has always sucked (I was a teenager in the late 1980s; I know bad hair metal when I hear it), beat out Bruce Springsteen.

 

On a more positive note, you have to like how three teams from the same conference Devils members made the tournament and that one of them won his region.  (Additionally, another indirect Devils link, Brendan Byrne, won a game poll in his "region".)

 

It's too bad traffic circles and jughandles couldn't have made the tournament. :)

He does have the advantage of being dead though.

Edison is a hack and blatantly stole all of his inventions from tesla. Ok maybe that's exaggeration but the point stands. The man was steadfast in his belief that direct current was better than alternating current, he was 100% about his financial interests, nothing else.

The ONLY explanation of Bon Jovi beating out Sinatra and Springsteen is that there are a lot of females voting is this competition.  Most women swoon at mere mention of Bon Jovi.  Sinatra is better than both Springsteen and Bon Jovi.

It can be argued that he actually wasn't the one who invented the light bulb.  He did however invent the filament which revolutionized the lighting industry.

So you're saying that there's a realistic possibility that he invented the light bulb, but not a realistic expectation that he did?

Pretty sure Edison invented the motion picture and phonograph. Edison is freaking brilliant (no pun intended) Marty is a stupid hockey player. Voting for Marty is akin to voting for Bon Jovi.

This guy is considered to be the pioneer of motion pictures in many circles.  Built the first movie studio and everything:
