The Devils played against a Ducks team who were one of the worst Cup finalists of all time.  NJ was a much better team.  Brodeur played a tremendous final that year, but even with Nieuwendyk out that NJ team was miles ahead of the Ducks.

 

Brodeur won the Ottawa series. His goaltending was the difference in Game 7. Ask Hossa. The Ducks weren't a great finalist but they defended home ice and pushed it 7. Even if they had no chance in Game 7.

So because fans here actually respect Lundqvist, they should turn their Devil jerseys in? Come on Matt. Brodeur was one of the biggest divers and whiners ever. But he was tolerated because he won. Our goalie doesn't complain unless it's warranted. He doesn't take underhanded shots at rivals. You know who did? Your goalie. At least some on here have admitted it. If Hank doesn't win a Cup, so be it. He'll still be a Hall Of Famer. A Cup would cement his legacy.

 

Calling Broduer a diver is laughable but then again I would expect nothing less from a Ranger fan who worships the Queen of Diving,

 

The Queenie has taken classless shots ant Marty and this is a Devils forum so he's going get whacked here. Enjoy it Derek.

You've all spoken. I'll step aside on defending Lundqvist for the time being.

 

Why do you think I am arguing to make myself relevant? Nothing to do with that at all. That's uncalled for, and so was your immature line about trading in a Brodeur for Lundqvist jersey.

 

Anyway this was just about Lundqvist, it's a good argument about the worth of goalies and the unfair expectations many have. Your argument is a goalie like Lundqvist needs to win in order to be great. That isn't your argument just for Lundqvist or just for today after the Rangers lost,  but for all goalies and at any time . My point was that I don't think that is the case at all.

 

It's easy for everyone here to say...let's just celebrate the Rangers losing and let us have that moment..and that's fine, but if I re-opened this conversation months later, I think everyone would be arguing the same points.

 

So if you are stepping aside why are keeping going with this Lundquist-Crush you have?

 

And what I said was not me being immature, it was a metaphoric way to call you out for posting pro-Rangers crvp, on a Devils' forum and in a thread intended to make fun of our arch-enemies' goalie.

 

The fact that you continue to argue seems to me like you are arguing for the sake of it...eg., to make yourself relevant in a thread that was just a joke.

I think we all know that Lundqvist is a phenomenal goalie. The Lundqvist dissing is because he's a rival, his fans dubbed him "The King" in arrogant fashion, and many of them act like he is the greatest goaltender to play the game since Richter (who is one of my all time favorites). Our guy won 3 cups and 4 Vezina's and his fancy nickname is "Marty". Or fatso, although I never got how a 215lb 6'2 guy was considered fat. 

 

Anyway, as Devils fans we had a terrible season overall from top to bottom and I think this near-miss of the Rangers losing in the finals has earned us an excuse to celebrate SOMETHING. Sure it's petty and immature, but so is ripping on a 600-plus win goalie because of an affair he had over a decade ago.

Excellent post. For all the crap we got from rags fans after we lost in 2012 to the kings and this terrible season (apparently according to rags fans the stadium game counted for 3 points in their mind) we have every reason to rip on them.

What's great is that rags fans have become so boorish and redundant that you can predict every insult they throw your way. It's like they put no effort into it

As for Lundqvist, I'll still enjoy Sam Rosen pretending every time to be surprised when Lundqvist plays one off his head. Always a brilliant decision to intentionally let something coming at 85 MPH hit your head, and it's never an actual save, the puck is going high anyway. 'Joe, he played it off his head on purpose!'

Jeez don't hate on the Queen everybody and don't dare start a thread poking fun at him, it interrupts all the Marty hating and bashing and upsets the Ranger fans.

Lundqvist is a good goalie, possibly even good enough to win 40 games in a season (though that's unlikely). He's not good enough to carry his team to a cup though. If the Bruins don't hit 100 posts and crossbars against the Habs the Rags don't even get to finals to begin with. The Rags got lucky this year, and won't be back to the finals for a long time. If Rags fans don't see that, then they will eventually. For the 1% of their fans that aren't @sshats (really, it's just that 99% of them that ruin it for everybody ;) ) they should enjoy the trip and take it for what it is, like '12 was for us basically, a one and done.

I really hope this is true, but I'm not as confident as you. For one, the new playoff format rewards teams in weak divisions, and the metro by far looks the weakest right now. Are you trusting the pens to keep the rags from another conference finals appearance? Because after them (and they come with their own serious questions) there's a whole lot of questions in this division.
