The Canucks lost tonight. Marty is now guaranteed to at least hold the single season wins record. Luongo would have to win his remaining 2, and Brodeur would either have to not play, or lose on Sunday for Luongo to tie him. Although I'm almost positive this that a goalie will break 50 within..say, the next 2 or 3 seasons, I'm sure Marty would like to play on Sunday.




With Luongo losing, there is essentially no reason even for personal reasons to play Marty.

He absolutely has to sit.

It wouldn't hurt to let Clemmy get a tune up. Just in case.


agreed.

That's a good point, but if he doesn't want a week off between games, than I think he should be allowed to play.

No, Luongo could still tie Marty for the record. Marty can get to 49 wins if the Devs beat the Isles. Now if the Canucks lose the Sharks tomorrow night, that's a different story because then all Luongo could do is tie Parent's record with a win against I believe Phoenix on Sunday.

Brodeur most likely will play tomorrow and has another two records he could be owning. The most games played in a season (79) and most wins in a two year period (92). He will play tomorrow to keep the hot streak going. There will be plenty of rest for the playoffs possibly 3 plus days as the Devils look like Game 1 will be on Thursday @ CAA. :evil:

It's not about personal records it is about the team... ask Lou.

If they don;t play Clemmy what is he suppose to think? What if we need him?

If Brodeur doesn't play tomorrow then he will have 5 days off since his last start. We all know in Brodeur's mind that is unacceptable and he has to be happy because he's our most important player. If he wants to play he'll play.

Who cares what Clemmenssen thinks. If we need him then that means the season is over anyway.

Agreed. :evil: Brodeur needs to start tomorrow. Five days off is way too much time off. Rust becomes a factor. I am also sure if the Devils have to go with Clemmy he would be ready and that would also mean the season would be over.

Yes it is a team game and personal records are second, but I am sure in the mind of Brodeur those two records are there to be taken.

can't disagree there... if something happened to Marty I'd feel better with Doyle in net because he's been playing all year long anyway, and it says plenty the two years in the Brodeur era when the backup never saw light of day (Corey Schwab the first time around didn't even get to play in garbage time the year Brodeur set the most minutes played in a season back in 1996)

Either way, just accept Marty is playing tomorrow :koolaid:

Luongo won today, if he wins his last game he ties Marty...Marty has to play. The Devils haven't played since Thursday, probably won't play for another 3 or 4 days after Sunday, it'll be a packed house for the last ever regular season game ever at the CAA, and of course there are the personal records. He has to play.

After the Laffs/Montreal game don Cherry was saying that if Lou doesn't play Marty it means he's greedy. I don't really see how it would be greedy on Lous part but I do see his point that he should play 100% because down the road he may want a favor...

How ironic that all the Devil haters and nay saying Laffs fans will now have to root
for NJ! I hope Marty sits or plays 1/2 a game and the 4th liners play 20 minutes.
No need to risk injury to key players. This may be the only game ever that I hope the Devs lose.
It's payback time for the Domi elbow.

It's bad karma not to play Marty. It would be one thing if Montreal had won and the Isles were out. However, this is a meaningful game. Don't want to piss off the hockey gods by not giving 100%. That includes #30 in net.

Isn't that odd though, that they wouldn't let Luongo go for 48th win? I think it all depends on what happens in our game. We play first, if Marty sits or loses, then I bet Luongo is in. Just a hunch, nothing more.
