Come on!!! A little more FAITH!!!
WE'VE been the best team in the east since the trade deadline!
NO ONE wants any of THIS!!
We are but the playoffs are different. The Devils are always invincible in the 1st round, their traps are flawless, Broduer is on a roll, and they forecheck like mad and attack the net like animals. They wouldnt sweep us but we'd lose. We could beat Atlanta and the Rangers would sweep Tampa Bay. If we met the Devils in the second round, theyd be a little slower and more vunerable for us to beat them.
Oh, by the way. For a team who prides itself on defense, care to know who's had the best D in the East the last couple of months??
I disagree with that statement. Brodeur is one hell of a goalie. I don't give a **** about that record, since wiithout his 10 shootout wins, he wouldn't even be sniffing the record, but besides that.... He's still one of the best ever.
Brodeur is one of the best 3 goalies of the past 25 years (Brodeur, Roy, Hasek) to call him anything less is ridiculous.
However, his wins record is completely irrelevant. The Devils had 9 shootout wins this year. That's 9 games that would be a tie in the past. If you assume Brodeur played goalie in at least 6 of them (though I would assume more).
That makes his win record not there.
