Larry Brooks ***** slaps Marty

Larry Brooks asked Henrik Lundqvist about Martin Brodeur's comments in SI about him being "weird"

Quote:
"I have to tell you, I respect Marty a lot, and it's always a great challenge for me to play against him, but I don't know what to say about what he said about me," a rather bemused Lundqvist told The Post yesterday. "Does he think my style is weird? I don't think I have a weird style.

"Does he think that I'm weird as person? I don't think I'm weird. I don't know what to say.
"
Marty is upset Henrik didn't shake his hand at the award ceremony in Toronto last June.As Henrik said why didn't Marty approach him.

Quote:
When the Devils owned the Rangers through a 24-3-13 run over seven years preceding the lockout, Brodeur crowed about his team's superiority. He luxuriated in kicking the Blueshirts while they were down.

Now, though, with the Rangers 6-0 this season and 13-6-3 against the Devils since the lockout, Brodeur claims it's no big deal.

That's weird

Marty
Meet Mr Avery
He is actually a little weird
But you will find his welcome hmmmm discomforting

What a creep he really is though. Weird would be giving him a compliment - so I refrain from this...
An Incredibly ego blasted cockaroach seems more appropriate. Unfortunately a very good keeper though

6-0 Rangers tonite
And if this is not the result - the Devils will still wake up tommorrow finding themselves living in New Jersey
What a weird nightmare of a wakeup call
Kinda like Groundhog Day I suppose

They must mean that since the Rangers are two points behind, if they win tonight then they'll be tied in points with the Devils. However, I think the Devils have more wins overall, and that's the first tiebreaker.

If the Rangers had the same amount of wins, then it'd probably be something like head to head record, and the Rangers would win that.

"March 27, 2008 -- Imagine Henrik Lundqvist's surprise upon discovering that Martin Brodeur had been quoted in the Jan. 14, 2008, edition of Sports IllustratedBoxings-Great-Magazine-Hope as saying of the Rangers' goaltender, "The way he plays is not something I like too much.

"Lundqvist is weird."





he is clearly talking about his style.....



carry on....



tonight game i'll be there will be 7-6 lead changes twice.... guess who wins....



carry on.

More exceptional, unbiased reporting from the New York Post. I understand the SI article was legit, but its just Larry Brooks trying to stir the pot the day before the big game... jumping on the timing of this, trying to get all his minions riled up. I guess it worked.

Not quite sure how this is considered a ***** slap. I mean... maybe i'd call it a womanly back head. But it's no "from sky to ground" style backhand.

As for your jokes about living in Jersey... pretty sure a good portion of your cohorts live in Jersey. Just sayin'

I read the article, he was talkin' about his style. And for him to not shake hands or introduce themselves? I mean, they clearly KNOW each other.
It is odd that they didn't talk at the ceremony. But it strikes me as one of those weird, awkward social situations. Like when you see your ex-girl's boyfriend at the bar. They probably made eye contact and got all uneasy. I imagine it like being alone in the halls of a highschool. Ok, I have this whole image in my head and i'm rambling

Marty is a well documented crybaby

Here's to Nigel having some more "missed" shots roll through his 5 hole tonight.

Except there's nothing weird about Lundqvist's style, other than he plays a little deep in his net.

It's still a strange comment from Brodeur, who probably plays the "weirdest" style in the NHL at the moment (aside from Hasek, when he's actually healthy enough to play).

Yeah, pretty much. Brooks is a rabble rouser.

Well it seems kind of weird for Brodeur to make comments about Lundqvist not talking to him, when he never approached Lundqvist either. Like...did he expect Lundqvist to rush over and talk to him because he's an all-time great goalie?

I certainly want to stay far away from the Larry Brooks bandwagon, but Brodeur does make some strange comments whenever it comes to the Rangers.

Agreed. He tends to stir the pot too, and it works well.

Yeah, like I've said before, I'm not sure if he's just a cocky SOB, he says things to keep his competitive edge up, or he says them just to annoy the Rangers and their fans

But I don't care as long as the Rangers keep beating him

Over the years, many of the greatest goalies appeared to be a little "quirky". I guess one has to be a little "wierd" just to put the pads on - and forget about the knuckle heads who played prior to the modern goalie equipment.

That being said, Brooks is an assclown and half the time I barely make it through any of his articles. Ultimately it always comes down to "put up or shut up".

More stirring up the pot for the game. It will be very enjoyable to see. Hope the Ranger's get this 7th game.

Great scoop, Larry!

It takes real talent to take a quote that's over two months old and pretend as if it's news.

I hope they ****ing destroy Broduer tonight, I love his *****ing and moaning because now the shoe is on the other foot and the Rangers are winning.

I hope to hear even more excuses and whining after tonight when the Rangers get "lucky" again.

Yeah, losing 7 in a row to the Rangers - its not a big deal right Marty?

as far as the article goes, I think its pretty damn funny that you can dish it out but cant take it.. Marty is a great goalie but his attitude (along with his team) causes me to hate him... even if he played for someone else i would still hate him because of his attitude.

For all the years the Devils were among the NHL best the Rangers still got most of the press & attention, don't think for one second that doesn't burn Broduer up. Now that the Rangers are competive again & the Devils are mediocore at best......out side of Broduer there is even less attention given to The Devils, Everyone, inculding myself thought the Rock was going to really put the Devils on the map, to this point it has not. Broduer & the Devils players & management have to wonder what do they have to do to become relavant in the greater Metro area.

I think Brodeur has been rather clear that he (as well as Lou) hates the Rangers more than any other team. I donít think itís really an issue of how much press attention the Rangers get Ė doesnít matter what the two teams do, the Rangers will always get more attention. Just like the Nets vs. Knicks or Rangers vs. Islanders. The NHL in general doesnít really seem to be relevant in the Metro area, itís not just the Devils.

As far as the Rangers being competitive & the Devils being mediocre at best, how do you explain the Rangers trailing the Devils in the standings almost the entire year? Unless you're saying the two teams have different standards, they're about as even as you can get.

Maybe Henrik will get a date with Marty's ex. Or her sister. Marty always bristles when the Ranger fans mention Matteau. He also does not like it that his home building ends up half-filled with Ranger fans. No denying his accomplishments, but deep inside I think he wishes he would have been wearing the Blueshirt.

His attitude would be quoted and worshipped here if he was a Ranger. The proof is that people love Avery's attitude here.
