Rich Chere had some interesting comments about Marty on Hockey Central the other day. Paraphrasing, he said that if you talk to people close to Marty, the 700 wins is way more important to him than he is letting on to the media.
As others have pointed out, I don't see any way he is getting there this year. It's a shame that the lame half season lockout a few years back seems to be the difference in him not going out a Devil for life.
How were you able to understand Chere with all of the sh!t dropping out of his mouth?
