Well, Mario did save the franchise twice from moving out of Pittsburgh.
Once on the ice and once off the ice.

I agree with Richer's Ghost about statues and living people, it does not seem right.

I'd be okay with a Brodeur statue, as long as they make it from melting down that God-awful thing in Championship Plaza.

If you ask Marty, I don't think he'd say that. If you ask Lou, he definitely wouldn't say that.

I agree with this. Something on the concourse at the Rock would be nice. On the street, that invites a whole host of problems.

I'll waive my requisite "once they're long gone" if it would simply be wait until he's no longer the Devils goalie coach.

Im pro statue.

In championship plaza, or in the park that is supposed to be built.

Serves 2 purposes, honor one of the great players of all time, a career long devil, and adds to the environment outside the arena.

No brainer imo.

I would personally enjoy it, as would most of the other fans, but it's just not the way this franchise does things.

Of course, anyone else would say it. But Marty and Lou's opinions are the ones that matter here. Marty wouldn't ask for it, and Lou probably won't do it. Having #30 in the rafters is enough.

Maybe a future GM or owner will decide it's a good idea. But it won't happen under Lou's watch.

Meh, I dunno about a statue, but there's a huge empty wall on the side of Edison Ale House facing the plaza.

Put up an epic mural with him along with Stevens as the centerpiece of said mural.

You guys are overthinking it. Its a statue not worshipping some false idol. Marty is an idol and the organization was built around him

This idea I like. For one of the younger organizations, the devils have some great history and a lot of legendary players. Having something to represent the team's history somewhere in/around the rock would be nice.


And with a mural, it's easy to continuously add new elements to it. Marty & Stevens did play a big role to get the team where it is today, and it'd be cool to see new faces come in as the team moves forward.


Then again, murals also have the ability to become tacky and overwhelming. Like statues.

Errr... I'm guessing you never noticed the humongous Brodeur/Stevens/Daneyko mural in the Rock?

We should use that wall for one of Kovy's many troll faces.

Sadly, no, I guess.
As many games as I've been to, I'm usually running late and rushing out.

I know the weird mural with the tiny heads, the high school jerseys and that's about all I've been able to take note of.

Oh.. and how awkward it is that the player whose picture is closest to the main escalator is Fraser. Unless that's been changed since Vancouver came into town.

Yea, there's a humongous one outside the Ice Lounge on the lower concourse.

Brodeur's in the middle, Stevens on one end and Daneyko on the other.

There's some other NJ sports legends on there as well but Brodeur is by far the biggest and center most figure.

We should just encase Marty in carbonite, Han Solo-style, when he retires. He will be ours forever.
