Acommplishments padded by playing way too many games a season, having a great defense in front of him for a vast majority of his career, and playing for a good part of his career when ties do not exist. He is a great goalie, and I will give you that, but his stats are very padded. His low GAA was easy to get when you have 2-1, 1-1, and 1-0 games druing the late 90's. Why else would you explain he never got a Vezina then when Hasek got them and Marty had superior stats? The GM's are not dumb and they see that Hasek was standing on his head every game while Marty was sitting back enjoying only about 20 shots a game.
I've already proven you wrong on the 2-1, 1-0, 1-1 nonsense in another thread, but go ahead, keep posting myths. And the defense he's had in front him post-lockout has hardly been great...yet he managed to match or exceed his career norms for much of that stretch.
The one thing I'll give you was Hasek was the best pure puck-stopper the game has ever seen. He had a six-year stretch where he posted a .930 save%. That's just obscene. Hasek also got a very late start to his career, which hurt his overall win totals.
Obviously you've got an agenda when it comes to Brodeur and you'll put a negative spin on whatever you have to to make Brodeur sound less impressive than he was. I don't really get it, but whatever makes you happy.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
