This is the mentality that I was talking about with some fans.
I'm not trying to pick on you directly, but people who just look at wins and nothing else are completely missing the point..

The issue is really what Marty has cost the Devils this year in the standings. So even if his win/loss record is largely a product of goal support and few shots against, a win is a win.
Right now we're three points out of a playoff spot, and it's a pretty safe bet that's what it'll be when the season ends. So I think it's also a pretty safe bet that if Cory got 65 to 70 starts, we'd have the eighth seed. That matters, but it doesn't fundamentally change what the team is.
But also recognize this. For a team like the Devils to be a playoff team it needs excellent goaltending, and not merely "anyone but Marty". You need look no further than Ottawa this year compared to last year. Despite the hyperventilating by some people that Marty is pulling the strings and no one in the organization wants to damage his fragile ego, Lou went out and got exactly the type of goalie the Devils needed for the foreseeable future. And all signs point to Marty not playing for the team next year. Yeah, it stinks that it took one more year than it should have, but if that ultimately proves to be the price for the long track record of success this team has had over the past 18 years, so be it.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?
