Yeah okay Al Davis
Wins are a TEAM stat, not a goalie stat. If you want to believe the Devils will keep scoring 4+ for Marty and >2 for Cory then fine, keep putting Marty out there. And of course we'll be out a first-round pick with no goalie in two years after Cory walks because of this ****
I surprised at how often this thinking is being perpetuated on the board. There is no reason to think that Cory is going to walk because Marty is starting games. He knows he's going to have the full starting job for the extended future and is going to sign with the team that gives him the best contract and playing situation combined, no matter what.
Even more what I don't get is how people are SOOOO angry with Marty, so much so, that they have completely lost their senses and their ability to fairly assess games. People bash and bash Marty (for only wanting to continue playing in the NHL) as some selfish prick who won't just admit he sucks and retire. When Marty lets in 6 goals, he is the worst goaltender in the league (though many of those goals were not his fault). When Cory lets in 7, it wasn't his fault because the team around him sucked and according to DR33, this is not the type of game where you talk about the goaltending. We also have decided to forego all reason and claim that Marty's goal support is completely a pattern of chance and can't have anything to do with his play, which while probably not having an outrageous effect, must be playing into the increased offense.
WE ALL KNOW Cory is the better goalie and should be starting most of the games. However, the desire to attack Marty, and unilaterally insult him over even rooting for the Devils to win, or fairly assessing the outcome of the game, is just a sad occurrence to watch unfold. Marty has won his last three games, we should be celebrating that and not looking to find creative ways to continue the barrage of criticisms at him. Clearly we can still win with him in net. Isn't winning what matters? No excuse me, isn't supporting a long-time New Jersey Devil legend on the far backside of his career what matters?
