In Topic: Brodeur got a tryout with the Blues

St. Louis would be one of those teams that would make even this version of Marty look great.  At least Cory's been playing better but no matter what there are going to be loons who'd look at Marty playing well in St. Louis and wonder why we didn't bring him back.

 

There is no team that will make Marty look great.  Only Marty himself can do that.  The Devils gave him a team that let up the fewest shots in the league and he couldn't look great.

Best defense and even a record-setting Penalty Kill.

 

Wrong year.  Devils had a terrible PK that year (because of the goaltending, mostly)

Well thats just it and you helped my point. Shero could adapt and make decisions based on situations. Lou doesnt adapt he just follow his path. He kept players when he thought it was better to keep them and he traded some when he knew he was gonna lose them for sure. THATS the part Lou isnt doing, he's gambling if he'll be able to keep players or not, while Shero probly knew for sure but decided to keep them.

 

edit: also the Pens had a team that you looked at the roster and you know they could win it. We knew our team had no chance of winning the cup the last 2 years. And please dont bring the "once youre in you never know" argument

 

If the Devils got good goaltending and timely scoring, the 2012-13 Devils had a shot for sure.  They were the best defensive team in the league.  I didn't help your point at all.

Hope he plays when the Blues are in town, I will do my part in giving him a standing ovation.

 

The Blues already played in New Jersey.

Not only did Shero not sell in 2008-09 when the Penguins were barely hanging on to a playoff spot - he could've sold Petr Sykora or Miro Satan as well as Rob Scuderi - he brought in Bill Guerin.  It's just bolstering your argument without really examining how things went down to claim that Shero would've moved either Clarkson or Fayne - both were critical contributors on a team on the cusp of making the playoffs.
