Devils should build a Hall of Fame inside The Rock this summer.
When Marty retires, he will be prominantly featured in it.

They should change the name of the city from Newark to Brodeur. Or maybe Martin City.

The Martin City Devils? Brodeur City Devils?

And obviously a giant statue.

Doesn't seem like the 'Devils way'.

He does deserve something though, best goalie ever.

They better be handing out free boxes of tissue at the door for his retirement night because the tears flowing that night will make even Messier proud.
Marty's Better chants all three periods. Only stop to wipe the tears. THen build the statue out of the tissues.

I could see a big ole Marty out there.
They are actually still going to do this? I know they were supposed to do it back in 2007, but these pictures are from 2010...

Can we make the Stevens Statue in Philly, and let it get pulled around the streets before making its way up here?

There should be three statues Brodeur, Lemaire, and Lou.

There is a mural at one of the Rock's exits of Parise, Langenbrunner, Gionta, and White. Please cover it up with a tribute to Marty.

I didn't like the crack either, but you have said a lot of things too on here that weren't very nice about some players. Would you say it to their faces?

By the way I'm not even saying you were wrong to have said those things.

Apples and grapefruits.

On ice performance vs personal life.

We are all guilty of the former, the latter is crossing the line.

Marty is the greatest Devil of all-time. There should be a special section (indoors) dedicated to his achievements, no doubt. But the legacy of the Devils is the logo, not the names.

Honestly...when Lou leaves us in the year 2150, I'd rather give him a statue.

I kind of agree with the poster who said that it's weird to see statues commemorating living people.

Talking to him man to man encouraging him to get help or showing some tough love is one thing, in fact applauded.

However, IMO, we don't have to stoop down to Rangers fan levels though and hurl snide insults about the personal lives of our current and former players on message boards.

We all love Marty and I will cry my eyes out when he retires and on his jersey retirement night. He is the best player this organization has ever had and likely will have for decades. With that said, what is the consensus among Devs fans as to where Marty ranks all time among goalies. Do you guys consider him the undisputed best ever?

Best ever. His best days are behind him, which makes some people lose sight of how amazing he was. In the late 1990's/early 2000's, there's not one goalie I'd take over Marty in game 7 OT.

I think he's the best, but I won't argue to the death if someone wants to say Roy or Sawchuk, Dryden, etc is better. I have no problem with someone saying those guys are better. Not to mention I'm not old enough to have seen Sawchuk or Dryden playing in modern times. Though I have talked to quite a few old timers who say they feel Brodeur is the best, and they go back to watching hockey as far back as the 50s and 60s. Even Jacques Lemaire while coaching for the Wild is on record as saying Brodeur is the greatest he's seen. That's quite a compliment coming from him.

I really don't like putting Hasek above Marty though. Hasek was definitely better at his best than Marty was. He just didn't have the longevity though as far as I'm concerned.

Best goalie (i.e. if I had to pick someone for one game) = Hasek by a fair margin
Best career = Brodeur AINEC

Really depends on what you are considering when talking about the best ever. Regardless, top 3 at worst.
