#1259957 Brodeur Article, name dropping where he might want to play, reveals wh

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 10 April 2014 - 03:34 PM

Seeing the Devils not make the playoffs for a second straight season is hard on people too, and that is going to manifest itself in many ways. 

 

But Marty just seems to think he's entitled to play regardless of how good he is.  The other guy was better than him.  A lot better.  One guy was 18th in save%, the other one is 43rd.  What does Marty think...that PDB screwed him somehow?  That the coach shouldn't try to go with the guy who's playing better?  The ironic thing is, Marty seems to think he somehow should've gotten MORE playing time when he got way more than he ever really deserved.  He says it was hard for him, and I'm sure it was simply because of what he once was and no longer is (or ever will be again).  I can only imagine what it must have been like for Cory, who to his credit says all of the right things, but had to watch a guy get legacy starts at his expense, when he fully knows deep down inside he gives his team the better chance to win games. 

 

At this point, Marty is a falling star trying to say anything to save face, whether it's for his own mental self preservation or for someone dumb enough to sign him this summer. I don't agree with what he says, but I also think he's not in his right mind when he's saying it. He's reeling because this wasn't how it was supposed to end. He was supposed to retire the triumphant hero, and now he's facing the reality of fading away.

 

If I can use one of SterioDesign's relationship analogies, it's like someone getting dumped who wasn't expecting it. They say a lot of things out of fear and jealousy. In Marty's mind, he would be just as good as he was if only he got another chance, and he doesn't realize Deboer gave him way more chances than he deserved this season. For some reason, he still thinks there's a couple of drops in the tank. These last 2 years sucked. I think he will be forgiven once some time has gone by, similar to the Niedermayer situation.

#1259467 In a Season of Problems, Brodeur was the Biggest

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 08 April 2014 - 01:34 PM


 

I think this is a perfect example of the Brodeur fanboys, and there are a ton of them out there. Saying Brodeur was not part of the reason the Devils missed the playoffs is a way bigger stretch than saying he was the reason.

 

Has anyone said Brodeur wasn't part of the reason? It looks like everyone is in agreement that Brodeur played terribly.

Yeah haha, gotta get in "fresh legs." I'm sure Schneider is completely exhausted and unable to play due to the game we played a fvcking week ago...

 

I'm waiting for something like

 

"Well, the elevator was broken Monday so Cory walked up 3 flights of stairs, and we want to keep him rested..."

#1255778 Rumor: Clarkson's contract being bought out per Stan Fischler

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 24 March 2014 - 11:35 PM

Fischler's story starts in nineteen-dickety-two. He had to use the word "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen his word "twenty"....

#1254754 GDT: Minnesota @ Devils 7:00 PM

Right? Everyone's 'classless' and has 'no class'. No class this, classless that, shut the fvck up. Most people don't even know what words like this mean, they just parrot them because they hear everyone else say them.

I find this post to be shallow and pedantic.

#1250749 We now have the 30th pick

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 06 March 2014 - 04:42 PM

So, people can go batsh!t crazy towards the new ownership over the song/chant but i don't see anyone giving Harris and Blitzer any sort of credit at all for doing this and taking the initiative. So much for they don't care. 

 

You don't think it's a bit of a stretch trying to connect those 2 things just for the sake of being inflammatory?

#1250108 The Official 2014 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 05 March 2014 - 03:25 PM

Trade deadline is over. Now the only suspense left is if all the people who are done with this team pop in after every loss to remind us that they are indeed done with this team.

#1249699 GDT: 3/4 Detroit at Devils 7pm

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 05 March 2014 - 11:53 AM

Maybe for some here (I think he can do some right) , but I think he can do no wrong for 75% of Devils fans out there. 

 

I would love for him to be a shiny new toy for a couple of months somewhere, but that won't happen. Around the league, it's pretty clear to what people don't want to see in NJ (management and coaching mostly). He isn't good. He isn't okay. He is bad.

 

Martin Brodeur has it better in NJ than he could have in any other situation in the NHL. He has started games in his hometown, he started the outdoor game, he has started 30 of 63 games when the stats say that's crazy. He faces the least amount of shots in the league, which really help his GAA (good luck bringing a .899 save percentage to any other team). Yet that still isn't enough, and he wants to be traded?

 

We all know that. We know he's not good anymore. But Deboer plays him, and win or lose, he gets crapped on by fans and the media sticks 50 microphones in his face asking him if he's leaving or retiring. Wouldn't you want to be traded? He's not the guy here anymore and everyone knows it, so whats wrong with him wanting to see if he can contribute somewhere else?

It's a good thing you guys aren't lawyers.

 

Should people need to be lawyers to understand you?

#1241084 2013-14 Prospect Thread

Posted by Devil Dan 56 on 25 January 2014 - 01:11 AM

It's like I'm talking to a brick wall that has the ability to write, somehow.  HE COST THE DEVILS POINTS.  IT DOESN'T MATTER THAT THEY GOT MORE POINTS WITH HIM, HE COST THEM POINTS BECAUSE THE TEAM SCORES WAY WAY MORE WHEN HE IS NET, WHICH IS LUCK AND NOT BECAUSE OF ANYTHING THAT HE IS DOING.  THE POINTS HE COST THE TEAM ARE BECAUSE HE STILL PLAYS WORSE THAN SCHNEIDER

 

This is the prospect thread, so I'm going to let it go. But I will point out again, if you're done with your little hissy fit, that I always said Cory was better, and that the team was still gaining points in spite of Marty's play. That's it. The whole 'who is better' or 'why they are scoring for one guy' thing is all from you. Sometimes people will disagree with you. There's really no reason to flip out over it.

#1240057 Janssen waived.

I love Cam and his attitude but I just never get where he's supposed to fit, especially on a team with no offense.
