#1261429 Marty on WFAN at 12:45

Posted by RizzMB30 on 16 April 2014 - 01:23 PM

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

This Blame-Marty is non-sense.


What killed us this year were (in order):


1. Our inability to score in shootouts. if we were 50% W, we'd be in the playoffs and this thread would not exist.

2. Our inability to score 5-5. Shut out too many times and we can't score even on backups and the other teams know it. (Blame Lou for having old scorers that can't score)

3. Our inability (blame the coach) to protect 3rd period and 2 goal leads. How many times do I have to see Zidlicy pinching down while we are up 3-1 or Jagr taking late 3rd period lazy shifts when we have the lead?

What? No.  That's on the players for not executing on defense.  The coach has no control over a deflection in front of our goalie with less than 30 seconds left or even 5 minutes left.  That is on the players. The coach can teach good positioning and decision-making, but when the game is on the line, there isn't much the coach can do.  What is inexcusable is having the CBGB line playing crucial minutes in the 3rd period.  I understand the trust in the line as a unit, but the only player I would trust from that line is Carter.

They control their own fate.  I just want to rub it in if we make it.  So many downers on here usually.  Many who have "Believe" posters in their sigs.

Does anyone here believe Lou when he said that Larsson is in the AHL to regain some lost confidence?  I mean, I can understand that since Larsson still a young and developing defenseman.  Who knows? Maybe Larsson will return to the NHL and play phenomenal?

I agree completely with this, I will be cheering from my seat at home.  He has been a mainstay of our forward corps for over ten years, he's been a leader, and really describes what people mean when they say "protypical devils forward", meaning he has a ridiculous skill set and solid two way player.  Even if he decides to leave (which would kill me), I would still respect him and believe that he has been the best and most consistent forward for the Devils for over ten years, almost 15.  I can understand if he doesn't get the deal he wants, he could bail, but I firmly believe in my heart that he'll remain a Devil for the rest of his career and will have his name in the rafters.  He means as much to this organization as Marty Brodeur does.
