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.

 

What, no - the Atlantic is weaker.  Florida stinks, Toronto stinks, Montreal is not good, Ottawa isn't good, and Buffalo is terrible.  Detroit's pretty mediocre too.  Tampa is going to be very good, maybe even great next year, but everyone else is not very good.

If Datsyuk and Zetterberg can remain healthy, Detroit is much more than mediocre, especially if Nyquist will only continue to get better, which is a pretty good bet. 

 

Florida is a team that might turn on a dime and all the sudden become a 90+ point team, but they're probably another year away.  Young (albeit very young) skilled forwards, and Luongo probably has another three years of a .915+ save percentage.  Gunbrandson might actually manage to turn things around, who knows.

 

All the stats would tell you that Toronto stinks, and maybe this year is when it truly begins to show.  However, for the past two years, they've been better than the fancy stats suggest.  Bernier might also be really, really good and help a bad team look respectable.

 

Buffalo will in all likelihood be terrible this year and the year after.  In three years though, it's a team will be a perennial Cup contender depending on how they fare in the draft lottery next year.  And if the Isles crap the bed next year, Buffalo could very well be the next dynasty.

 

Ottawa stinks, and probably will continue to stink for a while.  I think they're going to be sorely disappointed with the return they get for Spezza.

yeah my mistake I shouldn't have said by far the weakest but IMO it has the most questions. If the rangers were in the Atlantic I would be more confident that lunqvist wouldn't win a cup, because Boston and Tampa are both legit teams, and Montreal is at least capable. I can't say the same about the metro over the next 3 years with total confidence. That's what I was getting at, but of course a lot can change and even lunqvist should have a fairly different team in front of him next year.

I had so much fun with that pix this weekend.

DR33 I think Lundy is great, but I am so tired of Rags fans telling me how he is better than marty.. where is he better than marty?  His team plays just as defensive as many Devils teams did for Marty, the late 90's it lseemed like every other Devil game was a 1 goal game. and he has won many many playoffs games for NJ.  Shutting up the Rags fans was alot of fun this weekend...  and I did it w/out any Cups :-)

And let's not forget how an ancient Marty outplayed Lundy in the ECF 2 years ago. 

 

Rags fans were really talking trash before that series.

I'll never forget seeing the Rag fans that were there all scatter like ants after Henrique scored. I saw a few of them literally RUNNING down the stairs to get out of the building that night. It was glorious.

They'll talk about how Lundqvist has "dominated" Marty (especially in the regular season), but they'll gloss over how Marty has outplayed Lundqvist in two out of three playoff series, including one where Marty was 40 years old.  And Lundqvist having the Devils' number has as much to do with the Devils becoming a bottom-half offensive team in recent seasons than anything else.      

 

Not sure how a goalie dominates another goalie anyway (all they can really do is outplay each other), though I will say Lundqvist has definitely dominated the Devils' shooters as times...then again, so has a gaggle of rookie and backup goaltenders as of late.

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.

Shall I find the interview where he accuses Marty of diving?

 

 

Yes, please post a link if you have it! It would be good to have those quotes handy for any future Brodeur/Lundqvist arguments -- along with some GIFs of Lundqvist's dives, including his outrageous flop in this year's Finals. :)

Let's see if it can be found. It was from 2013 season.

I think the diving quote by the Queen came from this game but I could be wrong

 

I was at this game at MSG and it was amazing...fun to watch the Rags fans leave cursing Marty

Haha, I was at this game too, some idiot Rangers fan on the way out was like 'Who cares if we lost - the Devils have no fans'.  Rangers fans around me during the game were also loudly complaining about Langenbrunner and Parise being on the Olympic team, when one made a crack about Parise I had to remind them about Hugh Jessiman.

 

I think Pikkarainen was credited with 4 or 5 shots in that game.

Personally, I don't care about comparisons. Brodeur has all the records. Lundqvist carried them without the benefit of a stud center. The only goalie I can think of is Giguere in 2003.
