The New Jersey Devils have only retired two other numbers,
Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko, tonight they add another number to the rafters!
let's do this. loved niedermayer when he was here. pretty pissed when he left but that was a long time ago, and it's hard to hold a grudge against a player who helped bring 3 stanley cups to new jersey.
really pumped to see zajac back. glad moose will be starting because marty usually owns montreal. lets go devils!
I don't wanna use this thread as a tool to bash him, but I'm more upset with him over the 2000 holdout then we he left here in 05. The 98 holdout too, but the big one in 2000 when he, and Arnott held out on contracts the first month, and a half of the season pissed me off. Of course when they were finally re signed I embraced them both, and got over it.
I actually wanted to see him return in 2009. Rob signed here, and I figured it would be a great time to return since Lou loved signing old Devils down the road again. I was bummed when he didn't. I think his cap hit was more then we could afford, or we just didn't wanna give him the money Anaheim offered him for one more year.
Love him or hate him this is his night.
I don't mind Marty, and Moose alternating, but Marty said on opening night in regards to the question of this being his last season that if they want him as more than a backup that will affect his decision to stay or not. While I wouldn't say he's a backup he definitely isn't a guy they use as much as they used to. He's played 70 games more than once. A handful of seasons actually. Moose is a good Goaltender, and sadly one of them will not be here next year. If Marty retired Moose re signs, if Marty stays Moose is let go, and another guy from Albany out of the many they have down there now gets a spot.
