Well you know... traditionally speaking. Marty is never to blame for any loss.

It's always the other guys fault. His team not getting the shots. His team cant score enough... The other team preventing them from getting shots.... blah blah blah

It's never the 40 ft shot he let in to lose the game.

I hate this rivalry... so much.
Are we going to get a new thread overreacting to everything the Devils do and say throughout this series?

Of course we are. And every single one will devolve into a pointless pissing match. That's just the way it works.

Again, I see no problem with what Brodeur said. To be quite honest, it may even be a decent strategy. I'm just surprised he said it to the media. Generally comments like that stay in the locker room.
Well, as long as the devils won't be targeting upright/crouched defenders with pucks to the head, I don't have a problem with it. But if they go down slip and slide style, I have no problem with the devils aiming for kidneys, groins or ribs. That's old time hockey.

Because what he said was out of frustration.. He said they are losing because the Rangers are blocking all the Devils shots...

How about they lost because Marty let in softie.... or two?

The Rags should just start aiming clappers at Kovalchuk when they're clearing the puck on the PK. What a dumb thing for Marty to say

I am really trying to ignore it all and enjoy the games but it's difficult with so many lunatic posters (on both sides) that get everyone so riled up. My best friend is a Devils fan and we are always civil with each other and never talk trash. The internet brings out the worst in people though.

The Kreider shot was 50-50. But when you score 0 goals, yeah, the offense gets the blame there.

Oh totally...when he was screened on the first one right? Oh wait, if the tables were reversed and it was Lundpads, you'd be defending him. And yet its horrible for when we do it with Marty.

Double standards is all I see.

There's risk involved in the game and I'm sure at this level players know about it.
They know the RISK that is NOT the issue.

I hate this fat, no morals having piece of ****.

I can't wait until the ******* is out of the league and paying child support to his son(s)/nephews.

He's a disgusting human being and a tarnish on the NHL.

That was meant to be a response to your "Marty lost you the game by letting in softies" not this rubbish that you got your panties in a twist over.

Better question is why are you overblowing something so small like this, especially since it's a few days old. I smell a troll.

I can think of exactly one instance this year where a Ranger blocked a shot with his face. I don't remember who they were playing but Mitchell took a slapshot directly to the face I believe toward the end of the third. It was in 2011. The Rangers know how to block shots, they've been doing it all year. If now, all of a sudden, they start getting blasted in the face, it screams intentional.

That said, I think it's probably just Brodeur being his typical douchy self. I really don't think there's any player on the Devils who would do something like that and from the comments from Devils players I read, they sound like they're at least a little embarrassed that it was said to begin with.

If they wanna block shots so much, shoot as hard as you can. Try to keep it a few inches off the ice. It will break ankles, or be able to be tipped easier.

Because it really isn't as bad as you're making it out to be. One, if you actually watched the interview, you'd recognise that he was saying it facetiously. Two, he's only saying something that is well known already: guys will get hurt blocking shots, and it's to the Devils advantage if they do.

What about that justifies the level of outrage you're manufacturing?

This is nothing new. I remember Ron Low (or Kevin Lowe), the Oilers' coach at the time, saying the same thing during one of numerous Dallas-Edmonton series in the late 90's. Dallas, especially Craig Ludwig and Richard Matvichuk, was throwing themselves in front of every shot that series.
