Who's your goalie for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals? Poll

In Dr. Witticism's nice write up from Monday, December 12 (I suggest reading it, found here), he suggests that, using an objective observation, Moose should be the goalie the Devils ride for the time being. Before I continue with my argument, I understand that the disclaimer in Dr. Witticism's argument was that he said Moose should be our goalie "now".

I realize I'm playing Devils' advocate here, but I truly believe goalie you trust to win one game, any time, any team, any place, is the one that should be considered your starter. What better situation to test this in then Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final. Obviously, this changes depending on the situation and the team - Moose may be the guy you put in to win this critical game right now. Even though Moose has been the better goalie, I still believe that this is still Marty's job (this is not my opinion, but rather the opinion of the Devils management) Why? Two reasons:

1) He's Marty - this is not the best way to run a team, but do you really think Moose will get 55+ starts this season?

2) Devils management wants Brodeur back next season - even though he has slumped - sitting him for more than 40+ games this year isn't the best way to get him to return.

It's not as if Brodeur has fallen off the face of the earth, all Devils fans know this. He, in my opinion, has not had the best defensive help in front of him this season - in terms of quality scoring chances his team has been leaving for him to handle. I just think that, if the Devils had one game to win, any Devils fan would put Marty in net.

But, I'm not leaving it at that - let's test this theory. Please comment and leave your opinion.
