09:29 AM ET 01.18 | Why are the Devils 20-18-10 and out of the current playoff picture? Martin Brodeur. If we look at Brodeur and fellow New Jersey netminder Cory Schneider, it is clear that Schneider has not only been providing better starts but he hasn't gotten nearly the goal support Brodeur has. The Devils have scored 37 goals in 23 games when Schneider is between the pipes; Brodeur gets almost double that amount (71 goals scored in 26 games). That helps explain why Brodeur is 13-9-4 with a .905 save percentage and Schneider is under water at 7-9-7 despite stopping 589 of the 595 shots he has faced (0.924 save percentage). Ending the goalie platoon and handing the reins over to Schneider full time gives the Devils their best shot at another postseason berth.

Fuzzy math. Cory lets in six total goals ( stopped 589 of the 595 shots he has faced) and loses 9 games?

Hurting them like this?

I'm not sure who did the ciphering for the Washington Post but stopping 589 of 595 shots is a .990 save percentage and six goals in 23 games would be a .26 GAA.
(He actually has stopped 550 shots.)

Perhaps the movie critic wrote this one.

And he's not convinced he even wants to retire after this season...must be another sister-in-law in the mix.

What a stupid sheyite this writer is. Has ANYBODY currently in the NHL done more for his club than Brodeur? This guy can go **** himslef, if there's anybody that should be beyond criticism it's Brodeur.
