i think we were worrying about nothing. remember when he was first interviewed as a devil, he said he enjoyed the fact that he was close to home (massachusetts) and i don't think there was a team in the area needing a starting goalie in this area

Lou conference call check list:

 

Mentions player's great character: Certainly

 

Avoids answering something very trivial: Without Question (wouldn't give the length of the contract)

 

Brings up how long the Devils have known or watched the player: Certainly (Prep School and Hockey East)

 

Says  "status quo": Yup...WAIT...he actually says "I don't think it's ever a status quo process".

 

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE ANYMORE.

 

 

Excellent signing by the way.

EPS gives discounts on bulk customization jobs.  However I believe it starts at 10 or 20 shirts,

i bet we could probably get 10 people who would be in for a jersey.. but it will probably just end up being more of a headache then what the discount will be worth

There's no such thing as a great 7 year deal to a goalie, but this comes as close as possible.  If Schneider is a true .925 (which is basically a .922 in NJ), the Devils get a big discount here for the first few years of the deal, and then whatever happens at the end is whatever. 

 

Any long-term deal has inherent risks...not too many of them work out over the full term.  Just hope Cory is durable...that was one thing Marty allowed us to take for granted, along with his level of play.  He went 14 seasons without getting hurt ('94-'08), which is pretty amazing.

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.

This is great news! Thank you Vancouver, for not knowing how to handle having two amazing goalies.

Lamoriello said team's goaltending and defense are set and forwards are mostly set.

 

 

I like this quote. It means no more d-men, and that he still has some things he wants to move around at forward.

 

Also, I assume he'll sign Marty as soon as the ink on Cory's contract has dried. :P

Lamoriello: "It's longer than we've done in the past."

 

I didn't really know what he meant by that considering the Kovy deal and Elias signing for 7 years...but the longest-term deal Marty ever signed was six years, so I guess it's true it's long for a goalie deal.  And considering the contract, it could be a tremendous steal over time.

Great news obviously. I was never worried about it unless Cory had gotten to UFA. Glad he's locked up and hopefully he can fill Marty's skates admirably for the next 6-7 years. I don't expect 3 Cups, but as long as we can be competent and hopefully contend again soon riding Cory, I'll be pleased.

 

Ginger Power!

So happy Lou took care of this as soon as possible. I would have hated to go into this season with him unsigned. I gave Lou sh!t for letting Parise hit free agency so this move makes me happy and renewed my confidence in him.

Ok and maybe I can admit that maybe Zach did lead Lou on and make him think he was going to re-sign. I guess it's fair to say Zach is the kind of player you have to do what you can to sign him so Lou played along and gave him the one year deal.
