"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

how likely is it that Brodeur would let in 2 playoff overtime wraparound game winners to the same team within a 3 year stretch...oh yea it happened


what are the odds of Carolina game 7 2009 happening?

How about Carolina game 4 2009 happening. What are the odds of letting in a game winning goal from the blue line with 0.1 seconds remaining

What about letting up 14 shots on goal in game 1 vs Philly in 2010 and STILL LOSING. Or Daniel fvcking Carcillo scoring an OT winner against us

Or how about Eric Staal tying up game 2 with seconds left in 2006 just after Parise put us ahead? What are the odds of that? It happened

with the choker in net...anything is possible. I'm sick of all this over analyzed statistical mumbo jumbo. Everything that has happened to the Devils in the playoffs since 2003 defies this



Nice revisionist history.

Oh the one in Game 7 double overtime IN THE CONFERENCE FINALS when Fetisov for some unknown reason threw the puck to the middle of the defensive zone? After they beat Boston and Buffalo? Or the one where the whole team was down and out in 5 games in 97?

Game 7 in 2009? Oh, right, after they got shutout in Carolina in Game 6. The game 7 that had a tying goal because Nic Havelid decided he doesn't like defense and stood around while a pass went through him from the blue line to the side of the net. And then Colin White went 30 feet out of position to leave Eric Staal going down the wing at full speed. Anybody remember Parise and Gionta failing to connect a pass across the crease that would have tied it back up after that? Nope?

Game 4 in 2009? The goal from the point that was deflected by Ruutu and the team was looking for an interference call that it never got? And then he followed it up with a 44 save shutout the next game?

Carcillo's OT goal? In game 3? When NO ONE SHOWED UP? Where Brodeur made save after save in the 3rd period while the offense was skating in circles?

Please. Marty is definitely not the player he was. He definitely has lost a step, and he definitely has lost some big, big games (like last night), but to cherry pick all this crap out and somehow leave out games like 5,6,7 against Philly in 2000, the finals in 2000, the 2003 conference and stanley cup finals, the 2006 Ranger series. I mean every damn goalie in the history of the sport has won and lost big games. I don't know who these super goalies are that you think can win the cup every year, never lose a big game, and never blew a lead, but I'm gonna guess they hang out with unicorns and talking squirrels in a magical mystical imaginary forest somewhere.

Defend Marty all you want, he hasn't done jack in April without a D that had two HOF'ers on it.

That's fine. I've admitted he isn't the player he was. But no one on the team has done anything in April, either. Not one damn Devil has raised their game for the playoffs in 10 years. Brodeur's the only one who seems to have to answer for it, though.

Oh believe me he's not. They lose this series and I honestly wouldn't care if Lou, Marty and Zach were all shown the door. This team needs to be gutted once and for all, unless they see the wizard and get some heart and guts - NOW.

I think at the very least 2 of those 3 will be gone. I can't see more than one of those 3 back next year. Zach looks like he's already leaving, Marty is just not what he was and even though there are flashes, the best days are gone, and Lou just can't seem to build a playoff team. Plus you have those rumors that Vanderbeek was going to can Lou last year and it never happened for whatever reason.

If they lose this series, Lou should go too. I'm afraid what will wind up happening though is Lou will be allowed to hang around as long as he wants, and then he just hands the job to his moron son. That terrifies me.

I'll help you start a riot in the streets of Newark if this ever happens. Thankfully, I don't think we will ever have to resort to such tactics.

I'd be right there with you. It legitmately scares me though. I'm afraid Lou will be allowed to hand pick the next GM, and it'll be Chris.

If Vanderbeek decides Lou is gone, it's gonna be for a totally different direction. The fact that he was a fan before he was an owner makes me hope that he realizes the old school approach needs to at least be updated.

Lou should not be fired if the Devils lose this series. Also, the Devils already won THIS series.

Great, I can't wait for Devs/Sens. Surely we have an ENORMOUS advantage in net considering it's future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur vs. this Ray Emery clown. No way in hell Emery outplays Brodeur. Especially in game 1 at home. Watch Marty set the tone by making some huge stops and getting in Ottawa's head.

Sorry- if they lose the FLORIDA series, Lou should quit. If he doesn't quit, he should make a nice offer to Ryan Suter. Happy?

Because surely that Ottawa team is no good and can't possibly make the finals and Ray Emery definitely isn't having a fantastic playoffs. Why, I'm sure he won't carry them to the finals and then be the only one who plays in them while the rest of the team cowers in fear of Chris Pronger and his Dean-McAmmond-killing elbows.

Stop re-writing history like that was supposed to be another cakewalk series that Marty blew all on his own.

Don't think Ray Emery had to make a big save in that series. The first line was completely shutdown due to some stud russian defenseman. Name is similar to the guy we got, but can't be the same player.

Listen, if Lou Lamoriello walks away, there is no way his son is getting the job. The nepotism ends when Lou is out.

I don't know about you guys but I got a tip today from some lady named Mrs. Niedermayer so I'm running to the bank and taking all my money out and placing a bet that Anaheim beats Ottawa in the Finals in 5 games. Wish me the best!

I heard Volchenkov is a real weak link on the Ottawa defense as well, slow as sh!t. I think our speed can expose him. :P
