I hope that was Ryders last game as a Devil.

 

He probably hates it here at this point as much as we hate watching him, but the Devils might as well hang onto him until the deadline, and hope he gets hot enough to bring back more than he would right now.  But yeah, he's been exponentially frustrating to watch.

Now I know how Bill Murray felt in Groundhog Day.

..he might. But the media\fans will always take things out of context. That's their nature.
There was a mini-tantrum last night on HF regarding Hitchcock's postgame comments.

It was a combination of alot of things. But when you score four goals, you should be able to win a hockey game on the road. --Ken Hitchcock

..again, do I think he's talking about Marty here? --who knows? But in an age of public forums\twitter\internet message boards, quotes are more open for interpretation\disection.

 

Yes, the above is very true.  I definitely didn't love some of Marty's quotes from last season, but there were some fans who were finding negatives in damned near everything he said (mostly because they were looking as hard as they could to find a negative take).  There's now extended debates on the meaning of the words/quotes themselves.  I've never seen coaches' and players' quotes picked apart as much as they are now, and yeah, internet discussion forums have a lot to do with that.

When (if?) he gets his next start, if he falters, I wonder if he says something along the lines of "Well, it's tough to have so much time in between starts..."

 

He never really had to deal with prolonged inactivity between appearances until last season, and it's probably still not an easy adjustment for him, but at some point, if you're Marty, you gotta look at the tapes and realize "Maybe I just don't have it and won't get it back no matter how hard I try."
