the main board is wrong? again?

*time and date noted*

ps - making a thread like this devalues our street cred with the adults that may still occasionally visit the main board.

Smart kids should help the slow ones.

You all should go over to that thread and prove yourselves.

Seriously though, hockey journalists, writers, etc. all have him in the top-5, who cares if a bunch of random amateurs on the internet think he's number 6?

Unless their user names are green. Cause then they're writers for HF. They must be professionals!

Couldn't care less about stats, polls, HFboard experts, TSN, etc ...

Marty is by far the best goalie I've ever watched. He simply mesmerised me first time I've seen him play, during 2002 Olympics, and then just kept on doing it for next 10 years. Oh did I mention he is the sole reason I ever turned my hockey-eye towards New Jersey. The rest was history

And, my friends, I find that history by far more relevant, than one found in stats and "experts say" sections

I'm ok with an interchangeable top 5 of Roy, Brodeur, Sawchuk, Plante Hasek.

The subjectiveness of it all leaves some wiggle room - but I wouldn't put any other name up there.

If you're a great player and you're still in recent memory, people will find ways to take you down. It's just the competitive nature of sports.

The only argument that really gets me going is when people throw Ken Dryden and his 7 year career on a dominant Canadiens team into the ring...

Brodeur's league rank in wins by year:

1997: 2nd
1998: 1st
1999: 1st
2000: 1st
2001: 1st
2002: 2nd

2006: 1st
2007: 1st
2008: 2nd
2009: (Hurt)
2010: 1st
That's an amazing stat that I had no idea of.

Well I still think we are one of the best in shots against. I think the puckhandling plays into that too. I remember more shots against when Moose played a lot of the time(Which boosted his save percentage) because he can't play the puck for ****.

Though they do undercount the shots though. I've watched games, and counted shots on goal counted, as opposed to what I saw not counted. After having season tickets for years, and going to every game, this last year I couldn't because I've moved. I've counted about 3 or 4 shots a game they are not counting for Marty. I've noticed they rob the visiting goalie too a little bit. Still 3 or 4 saves a game robbed is a lot. Not to mention a majority of years I've found Marty's road save percentage vs home save percentage much higher. Even in the same amount of games played.

Why do people hate on Marty? Because he's still playing. That's exactly why. He's still playing, therefor he can't possible be better then guys already retired.

That's how this board works...if you're a retired hall of famer, you're the greatest ever. If you're a future hall of famer but still playing, you're not even worthy to lick their boots. Garbage world.

I like how the people on the mainboard used Marty giving up 5 goals in the SCF game 6 this year as something to tarnish his legacy.

Obviously they're not old enough, or just not smart enough to remember game 1 of 2001 SCF where he gave up 5 goals. Though they cut that joke, choke artist Lulongomallow a break for giving up 8 goals in a SCF game last year, and his absolutely BRUTAL goaltending the whole entire series. Not to mention his Al Trautwig BRUTAL goaltending in the LA series where he lost his starting job to Schneider this year.

Marty's top five no matter what way you spin it. But nobody will be able to play at as a high a level as Marty has throughout his whole career. That's why he's #1 in my opinion.

Every shift is an overstatement, but you can't deny they have some players that often cross the line. I can accept making a hit and coming up high, it happens. Late hits, unnecessary slashing/punching, hits clearly taking advantage of players, etc., those are dirty. Rinaldo slewfooting ZP, Hartnell's episode at the end of the first period in that 6-4 win, Giroux's hit on Zubrus in game 4, and stuff like that is clearly dirty. Even in the AHL game, I saw Bourdon I think just punch Urbom in the face for no reason when Sestito and someone else were in a scrum.

Zubrus scored the one goal in game four I believe and then Hartnell just elbows him for no reason. It's that kind of stuff that gives the Flyers that label.

Well, there you have it.

This thread started driving down the road with 3 wheels, and now a second one just fell off and the engine caught fire.
