Waaay to much money and time, absolutely insane deal if you ask me.
Is nobody else pissed at Marty? I haven't seen that opinion offered yet.
If he really did live for this team and was so loyal then he would have taken a reasonable contract for what he was actually worth instead of getting money hungry when the team is in financial ruin.
Honestly if it weren't Marty, a 40 year old goalie with his current level of play would be hard pressed to get 2.5 million a year, especially for a 2 year deal. I think a one year 3 million dollar contract would be well beyond fair for Brodeur, and would imagine that's what he was being offered at first.
Hell, I'd rather have Michael Leighton at 900k a year for 2 years than Marty for 2 years @ 4.5m per year. They are both goalies that can get hot but generally aren't up to par and let in major softies.
Yes I respect everything hes done but he isn't doing them anymore and a 2 year deal weighs this team down further when his play hasn't warranted it.
And how much money did Brodeur leave on the table by negotiating his own deals and never testing FA all those years?
And Leighton over Brodeur? They don't belong in the same sentence.
The call against Gaborik was absolutely the correct call, there is no way those losers score unless he plows into Brodeur. And as someone mentioned earlier, where was the high stick when Tao got nailed in the face and the trip when Henrique was off to the races shorthanded?
No sympathy for them. 30 saves for Brodeur. Great game.
Apparently every Rangers fan has forgotten the rules regarding goaltender interference...had this been the other way around they'd be up in arms over anyone touching dear Henrik.
Kovalchuk's passing skills? How about the entire team tonight, passing behind each other or to the skates. Thought Kovy had a good game besides that turn over, which was also a nice play by Grabner. Sick of our fans using him as the scapegoat for every game. And that was a real crap pass to Larsson on our first goal, right?
