Wow I almost forgot about that one (a few years back granted). I don't blame him one bit for refusing to shake hands and who's to say Avery would have - easy for him to say that after the fact but I didn't see his hand extended either.

Pretty much agree with your post spot on. The Devils did not win a regulation game of any kind after March 15 (and couldn't beat the Rangers in 13 tries in regulation). The irony is for most of the season the offense was the problem, in this series Marty and untimely mistakes were the issue.

Avery would because he is the instigator and because 99.9% of NHLers do. Brodeur has let it get to him while avery is off to make a new enemy.

One thing I will say about the Devils beyond their lack of firepower, questionable defense and shaky goaltending this series, is that their forecheck was arguably as good as any team in the East. Being able to withstand that could be a benefit to the Rangers going into round 2. No doubt they still make too many turnovers in their own end and have a habit of giving up too many odd man rushes late in games. And I think they really can't afford to bail on the forecheck in favor of sitting back trying to protect a lead against a team like Montreal or Pittsburgh. But having said all of that, I'm pretty convinced that we've got the best goaltender going forward (in the East at least) and I like our chances against anyone.
