It would have been just wrong to see Marty in any other Jersey. Parise hasn't been a Devil long enough that it would be odd to see as a -----

I agree.

Seeing him in a different jersey or a different mask just wouldn't be right.

I dont know the cap situation or the devils internal budget, but this signing seems to me that they know they arent getting parise.

And now we can all laugh at the journalists suggesting the Devils clearly did not have the money to re-sign Brodeur.

Did not believe in the whole Brodeur free agent madness.
I just think that the devils had other issues to work on and told marty to wait.

Good news, but I'm really not too thrilled with this. Overpaid and too long a term. Glad to keep him but I hope this money won't be money kept from the Parise offer.

I can't believe he squeezed a second year at that price out of Lou. He used all the bids to force Lou's hand.

Well played, Marty. Well played.

as it should be. No Brett Favre, Joe Montana, etc nonsense here. I hate the Devils, but it's great to see Marty finish out the great story.

I'm glad that Brodeur is remaining a Devil. I'm fearing that he might have a Roloson-esque final season, though.

Seems like a good deal really, he can mentor whoever they sign, makes for a nice transition really.

I was thinking just the opposite. This is the first positive sign towards resigning Parise.

Still think he signs in Pitt, but it is a good sign that Marty stayed.
