With one game in hand, Brodeur has broken Bernie Parent's 33 year old record of 47 wins in a season with 48. Congratulations Marty!

Buuuuuut...with the OT wins, shootout wins and a longer season, is it really that big of an accomplishment or is it just the new "standard"?

For the record if Luongo wins his last 2 games and Brodeur loses his last one, they will tie with 48 wins each. That would be pretty cool, but it would add to the argument that 48 wins is potentially not really that big of a deal.

Do you guys think that maybe 47 wins might actually be the equivalent to 55 or 60 in today's game???

there is another thread on this btw..

basically I think it's apples and oranges.

We have overtime and shoot-out wins now, but much more parody. Parent achieve this mark where there were only 2 divisions (West and East) and only 2/8 teams in his divsion (west) were over.500 - Some really bad teams there!!

Not to take anything away from the record, Parent was amazing! I just find it hard comparing records from different era in general... the circumstances are just too different.

Great job Marty! Though it does help to be the starter in pretty much every game.

Good job Marty, but you need to remember that Parent had to settle with a tie.

You may mean "parity" here, otherwise this sentence takes on a strange meaning.

Some say that the record is tainted, well look into the past, all records are made to be broken, the rules will lend to some players in the future that will break an old record, if that could never happen then why would we keep stats...

Good job Martin...but your record will be 50+ in the next two years...

Bring it on...
