[quote]Yann Danis had to wait a while to make his first start as a Devil, but might be only a couple of days away from making his second.

The Devils backup goaltender made 31 saves tonight in a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins at TD Bank Garden and impressed Jacques Lemaire enough that the Devils coach didn

It would be really interesting to see Marty's reaction if something like this actually happened. No coach has ever had the balls to do such a thing.

It would be interesting if Danis played Saturday, and not the worst idea in the world. Marty's played a lot this year and Saturday's game is a wonky start time.

Of course, I doubt Danis does start on Saturday. Lemaire's probably so used to giving PC answers that it just comes naturally.

i would not be happy with this. it'd be like not giving rivera a save opportunity because he blew a game or two, and he's old. and marty hasn't even blown a game recently. definitely not blaming the last loss on him.

I don't think it would be a punishment for Brodeur, more like a bonus for Danis's good play. I don't think I'd give him the next game though, maybe one of the games next week.

There's no reason to open that can of worms though, it's not like Marty's even been terrible since the first couple games of the season. Not to mention if Danis starts two in a row everyone's going to accuse the Devils of hiding something vis-a-vis Brodeur (i.e. an injury).

The closest I've seen though is when Burns played Schwab in two out of three games in '03, of course Schwab only got in like nine games total that season :P

Danis was awesome tonight but given the Devils have 10 more back-to-back games before the Olympic break, he'll see a lot of rubbers later.

I'm with you. You know that wouldn't fly with Brodeur, but like you said, there is no point in doing that. Hopefully Danis just gets into a lot of back-to-back games.

Brodeur has full support from the coaching staff and management. This shouldn't be an issue, and I tend to agree with Tri about Lemaire's comments.

The way Danis played last night he deserves to start another game. I wouldn't mind seeing Danis play in Tampa Bay and give Brodeur some more rest because we all know Brodeur will now play a long string of games unless Lemaire does have a pair of balls to sit Brodeur for Danis. Just have a feeling we will see Brodeur between the pipes tomorrow afternoon in Tampa Bay.

No he doesn't. Yes, he played well, but that's the job of a good backup: play well when called upon, regardless of how infrequent the appearances. Marty will have had 2 full days of "rest" and then some, come tomorrow's game. Tri is 100% right: Brodeur is the #1 and should start...as he should against the Caps, with the Devils getting three more off-days after Saturday's game.

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.

Thats just Lemaire using the threat of Danis starting as a tool to fire Marty up. Give him a little push. No way Danis gets the start, but nothing wrong with planting a little seed. We'll see how Marty responds in Tampa...

Yea, I agree. I do like that Lemaire comes out and says it though, not as a slight to Marty, but it shows he has confidence in Danis.

It's a bluff by Lemaire but it should send a message to both Marty and Danis.
