Well, there goes my list...2-way deal for Clemmer though - we may see some Kinkaid yet.

I've got my best poker face on because being too happy would be disrespectful. 

 

Thanks Marty!!

Yikes...he's been pretty bad the last couple of years.  .874 and .896 save%s.  Looks like Kinkaid is going to get a shot to win the backup job.

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.

Precisely why I had ruled him out. I figured Lou was going to go for a real backup - Chad Johnson/Darcy Kuemper type.

Why in the world would they sign someone with a worse GAA and save percentage than Brodeur??

This is awful. I hate this move. At least sign a real backup. Thanks for everything Marty. I hope you retire.

They're hoping Kinkaid wins the job.  Clemmer (I hope) was signed to be the #3 guy, a veteran with NHL experience who can step in if Kinkaid gets hurt or doesn't get it done.  I just can't believe he's the clear #2.   

 

Cory's definitely not threatened now...he's going to get 65+ games for sure with who he's got behind him.  But it's REALLY scary to think what could happen if he ever got hurt.  A tandem of Clemmer and Kinkaid?  Yikes, yikes, and yikes.

The one thing that didn't happen today that I was hoping for is a Schneider extension. Now that he knows Marty isn't coming back, hopefully that will get done soon.

That's actually kind of the bright side of not signing a legit backup, Cory can now play 70 games.

If Cory ever got hurt for an extended period, deal with it then.

 

I'm relieved that the #30 era in NJ is officially over.   It was an amazing 20-year run, but now it's Cory-Time !
