Didn't Weekes play for the Isles?.... so now he joins Nemchimov & Malakhov as the only one who have played for the 3 NY/NJ teams.



This is correct. He also had brief stints with Vancouver and Tampa. Weekes began his career with Florida but was then dealt to Vancouver as part of the Bure deal.

Don't like Weekes because of 2002, but he's better than Clemmensen. This is a sign that Marty will get a lighter workload next season because Weekes is a top echelon backup.

Are you forgetting about Vanbiesbrouck?


Pat Conacher too.

Haha I made a joke about this in the OT forum, but I said we would trade Marty for him. :P

I bet he will get booed whenever he plays at home or at Rangers now. He always got booed at Rags for some reason and he will get booed for what happened in '02. Oh well, as long as he can win the two games that he plays, I have no problem.

If we boo him in Newark, theres a good chance we might not make it home that night. :lol:

We'll be getting shanked at the concession stands and getting mowed down by drive bys on the way home

(Just a joke for the touchy feely)

If Marty is about the team, instead of pseudo individual records or awards, he will suck it up.

He has too look at the long term benefit, in that he will add a few years to his career.



Yup.

It definitely appears that we're going to find out how much of a team guy, Marty is now.

If Lou is going to force him into more games off, in order to let Weeks carry some of the burden, he's going to have to put individual records aside and adapt.

In honor of one of the greatest dmen to ever play the game, I remain to this day and forever after a lifetime member of the Scott Stevens Fan Club:

"If you ever had to describe what a Devil player would be," said Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello, "the name would be Scott Stevens."

"He was just huge," Devils left wing Patrik Elias said of walking into training camp the first time in 1995. "I was afraid of him. You had a 170-pound guy coming here and he was 220, 225 with these paws like a bear. I was pretty intimidated the first few years. I'm happy he was on my side the whole time."

I think there is, maybe Peluso? Pat Flatley?

we wont boo him, we don't whine and cry when the players move on. We can understand it is a business first and foremost and the players have just as much right as anyone else to make as much money as they can. Even if that means going to another team.

Ah, self-righteous are we?

Please, you guys would boo a player in a second. Hell, you've booed your own players before. Every team's fans do it from time to time. No one's an exception -- we do it, you do it, hell, Columbus does it.

Boo players, yes. However if Leetch or Messier had signed with the Devils, we would not have boo'd him solely for that reason. Hell, they'd get standing ovations everytime they played at MSG.
