Whatever. You're probably a Zajak fan. :giggle:

 

I like Zajak but Kincaid's my favorite.

Who's bashing? I swear you pull this crap all the time by seeing things that aren't there or happening. All this so you can come here and feel high and mighty. Stop it already.

No there were a few people bashing the misspelling of Brodeur but honestly I can't blame them.  It's embarassing to have his name misspelled in a tribute thread on one of the leading Devil fan message boards, and when it was gently pointed out to the op he didn't care and laughed about it without changing it until a couple more people had more biting posts about it.

Wow, talk about disillusioned..

I'm almost certain that's actually Marty himself writing that comment. Must be.

I stil cringe at Neidermayer. Fun fact: I bought on of those knockoff Cup shirts for like $5 from the guys outside of the CAA after the 2003 parade and I absolutely loved the fact that it had the roster on it - until I got to NEIdermayer's name. Woops.

At least it was only $5.

Spelling mistakes on a message board shouldn't be a big deal. We're not getting graded or awarded for these posts. The only reason I don't have many spelling mistakes is because my browser corrects me. My grammar on the other hand...

I'm probably more picky about spelling than most people (maybe I'm just bitter because in elementary school they told us we should desire a career in something we are good in so I wanted to be a speller, and then in middle school there was no more spelling class :angry:) but come on, how many times do we see the players' names spelled out in front of us, especially Martin Brodeur?  Over the past twenty years we've all seen hundreds of his games with his name typed out on the screen or stitched across his jersey, we've been to games and seen hundreds of Brodeur jerseys in the stands, and he has been mentioned on this site and whatever other Devils forums or blogs we read a billion times.  With everything he has done for this franchise, I think he deserves to have his name spelled correctly by now, especially by Devils fans in an appreciation thread.  It's not like he misspelled some rarely used word that you only see in spelling bees, this is the face of our franchise we're talking about.

Eh. He just flipped two letters. It's not like it was dramatically misspelled. They should have an auto-correct feature for Brodeur like when you type out Єklund (2.3% accurate). Are those numbers still accurate?

You are all also forgetting that purposely misspelling players names have been part of the OP's schtick forever.

I'd say it's a bit higher. He totally called the Moulson to Minnesota deal hours before anyone got wind of it; that was a biggie.

He has spelled many players name wrong on many, if not all, of his posts.  He constantly puts Zajac as Zajak and when people point it out to him, he always gives the same responses:

 

1) Spelling is not as big of a deal as their play on the ice

or

2) Who cares how I spell them if they are not doing well they do not deserve to have their name spelled right.

 

At this point it's on purpose and has been for a long time.

Yeah, but if he made 50 predictions and got one right, it's not really anything to write home about.

From Tri:

 

This isn't true.

 

Shots on goal per game were slightly lower during that time but not much  (see here:  http://www.quanthock...hotsPerGame.php).  Most of the reason why the 'dead puck' era happened is that goalies got way better.

 

 

I know you weren't really watching hockey back then (Live Puck), but I was, and yeah, all you have to do is look up highlights and some full game recordings and you'll see that there were some truly bad goaltenders playing back then.  What's funny is that some guys who were considered to be terrific when they first arrived (like Ron Hextall) in Live Puck and were considered shaky later in their careers really didn't get any worse...the younger goalies that were coming up were simply that much better.  John Vanbiesbrouck won a friggin' Vezina with an .887 save% in the 80s.  The one guy who truly was a terrific puck stopper in both eras was Patrick Roy.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.
