Put * to Marty's Record

Posted 8:42 PM ET | Comments 8
I love to hear Chico Reish brag everytime about how brouder is the greatest goalie since rice bread and when he broke Parent solidified Marty as the greatest goalie is total BS.

After going to one of my favorite website, www.flyershistory.com and looking at the both seasons, i came to the conclusion that Marty record is a total fraud as Barry Bonds breaking Home Run record while taking the roids.

Here is my argument.

Bernie was playing in 78 game season playing against the talent of Bobby Orr,Vickers,the French connection, Mikita, Esposito, Lafleur,Sittler,Nystrom inwhich every game ment something everynight.

The record Broudur broke was basically handed to him because some moron in the NHL fr4ont office decided to hand out wins in overtimes and the skill competitions (Gayout). plus the fact marty was facing water down talent with teams that dont deserve to be in the NHL

Put your * away. Rules and seasons change in every sport. Parent's achievement should not be diminished - he had the most wins in the fewest games. You cannot penalize a player because of the era in which he played though. You could argue that the equipment that the goalies wear is different or that the ice is better or worse... It's meaningless. Brodeur has the most wins in a single season - there is no denying that. If anything, Parent should have the * that states "In 78 games pre-overtime point"

Also, Bonds is projected to hit 64 homr runs this year without the muscle juice!

You def. cannot compare someone winning games based on the rules of the sport to someone who allegedly broke a record by cheating. Those are two completely different things. Marty should be praised for his record and his oustanding play throughout his career. No need to try and tarnish something that the man worked hard for, especially when its pointless to try and do so. I can understand your logic, but I just don't see a need for it.

Marty always mentions Parent when talking of the record, Parent has no problem with the record bearing Brodeurs name, why do you? Its not as if Marty had the option of going back in time and playing in 1974 NHL.....

The premise of your argument about the single season record is valid...but the other stuff that attempts to discredit Brodeur is unfair an not accurate.To say that Brodeur is playing in a "watered down" NHL is simply absurd. Some of the most talented players in the history of the sport have played during Marty's time in NJ. He played against many Hall of Famers and future Hall of Famers in their PRIME. (not to mention guys in the last 10 years simply shoot the puck harder then ever...with these composite sticks and all...)The Devils, coincidentally, have won 3 cups (and lost a 4th) in the last 11 years and are arguably the best team in hockey over that time. And this is a team that has changed a few times over those years...well, except Marty has always been there. Plus, as mentioned earlier, Brodeur is a true fan of the sport and it's history. I can't imagine a better person to break this record than him. Yeah, put an asterik next to the most wins in a season if you want, but there certainly shouldn't be one by his career numbers...unless it's indicating one of the best goalies ever.

First of all, IMHO, Brodeur will ultimately be considered the best goalie ever... However, since many of his wins would have been ties in Bernie's era, I believe that he can not own THAT record; he should have his own record, another record... Parents should be pre-overtime era, while Marty's should be post-overtime... No * is necessary... Neither golie should have anything taken from their achievements... and both have been gracious about each other's place in history, giving each other their due props... I also do not consider Brodeur's record and the sham that Bonds is getting away with anywhere near the same situation; they are not comparable whatsoever... Congrats to Marty, and Bernies record is now secured forever, as I and most everybody else who has any sense of fairness see it.
