There are a million quotes that say a million different things. Saying Brodeur was upset is fine, I am arguing against the idea that Marty was promised something explicitly and that he was some vengeful freak this year.
I'm with Neb00rs here. Marty is a quality character and was really sh!t on around here on the boards. To attack his play is one thing, which was sub-par when compared to Schneids this year, but to attack his character and call him a 'cry-baby' or claim he has a poor attitude tells me that its very easy to take what Marty said out of context. He legitimately loves the game of hockey and there is nothing wrong with that. Especially in terms of, wanting to play as many games as possible. And I'm glad to see that some of you are being put at ease with Marty's more recent comments. Maybe I'm too easy-going and willing to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I really believe that Marty is not going to find a job, even as a backup elsewhere in the NHL, I dare anyone to convince me otherwise. I also believe that Marty is man enough to come back here as a backup, swallow this pride that everyone talks about, and reach his NHL-record 700 wins (maybe more), and then retire as a New Jersey Devil for life. Who knows? You never know when someone can get hurt and that's why its good to have a reliable backup and Marty can be that as long as his role is clearly defined and he can live with that. *knock on wood* Marty re-signs here and gets maybe 15-20 games
