Martin Brodeur in the playoffs without Scott Stevens:
16 wins, 26 losses
Scott Stevens and Martin Brodeur in the playoffs together:
83 wins, 56 losses
Apart, neither has won a game beyond the second round. Together they have 3 Stanley Cup rings. Just in case anybody needed a reminder that teams win in the playoffs, not individuals.
And no, I'm not criticizing Brodeur. He wasn't the reason New Jersey lost this year, just like Scott Stevens wasn't the reason that Washington never won anything in the 1980s. I feel like I could write the same post I did last summer, where I argued that Brodeur has been the same guy in the playoffs whether the Devils were winning or losing, the difference was the play of the team in front of him. When your team scores eight goals in five games on Brian Boucher, then you're very probably going to lose.
