A huge plus for Marty this year over last,  the rules change in expanding the trapezoid. Last night's Blues game proved one aspect in Broduer's game, his puck handling skils haven't diminished one bit and it was clearly an advantage for the Blues vs. the Cats. In perspective, Luongo's puck handling looked like a fan trying to win money between periods.

 

How many times over the years have we seen opposing goalies do all sorts of stupid things with the puck because Marty was at the other end of the ice? He intimidates other goalies, no question, especially when it comes to handling the puck.

It's worse when you're DIRECTLY taking his job like Cory did to Marty last year, like Steve Young with Montana, like even Rodgers with Favre to a degree.  At least with Marino it's not like there was any young turk pushing him out the door (whether the perception's fair or not, the perception is Cory pushed Marty out).

 

Remember those commercials when Tino Martinez took over at first base for the Yanks? I don't even remember what it was for, but he was on a psychiatrists couch talking about how difficult it was for him at work, following someone everyone loved, and he didn't know if he could win their love as well, etc. And then the camera pulls back and Mattingly is the psychiatrist? :) I think that commercial made his tenure a lot easier.

 

As for Marty, I hope he does well, has some fun, and doesn't embarrass himself. Hopefully a ton of young fans who didn't get a chance to see him in the prime of his career get the chance now, and he plays in front of a lot of large crowds and enjoys the few remaining moments. I think I may be happier for the fans than for Marty lol. But best of luck to him and to the Blues; that's a great looking jersey.
