I think he is being respectful to both Cory and Marty and the situation. He would never normally announce Brodeur starts two straight games. So no point now, even if it is pretty obvious to everyone involved why it be the case. Like I said earlier, Cory deserved one of the last two games based on play. But that hasn't been how it worked all season, and it won't end that way either. That's fine, but it's the better way of going about it rather than saying we're gonna give Marty the last two starts because there's a good chance he never plays again.
Speaking of the goalies and Deboer, I had to laugh one more time during the post game press conference as Deboer talked about having a goalie situation that every team would want, and how both goalies deserved more games than they got.
I don't think PDB believes that...I think even if Marty doesn't necessarily want to take the high road, PDB and others will. Better than back-and-forth squabbling through the media.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
