Martin Brodeur - 2 years $9 million

519 posts in this topic

Wonderful, watch a guy that gets treated like a god walk out the door and replace him with a guy Devil fans ALREADY hate on sight, both because of the fact he's a rival for Marty on Team Canada, and because of his overinflated pads and choker reputation. They couldn't handpick a worse replacement for Marty, other than throwing a nameless kid in there.

Seriously. Can't make this stuff up.

Marty in a different uniform and Luongo in a Devils uniform would be enough to put me in an insane asylum. Add in Zach leaving, and yeah... Get me a straight jacket.

This, this, and more of this.

Tomorrow could be a bad day, a bad day indeed.

Could be worst... Imagine replacing brodeur by trading henrique + merril for Bryzgalov....

Yes. Go on. Imagine it.

I don't really want to get into this conversation until we have to but if we end up having to I'd rather have Luongo then most of the other goalies out there. At least we would have someone who we know puts up good numbers in the regular season. There aren't too many other options out there.

Makes zero sense for the amount of money he has to be paid and what you would have to give up to get him.

You can get a lot of goalies to put up numbers in the regular season that don't come with Lu's baggage. With his contract it HAS to work out or the Devils have tied themselves up for years.

Who though? There isn't a single UFA that is any good.

I'm as American as apple pie and Chevrolet, but I didn't even root against Marty then. I can honestly say I've NEVER rooted against him. Sure I wanted us to win gold in 2002, but I couldn't bring myself to actually cheer a goal against Marty.

What do you have to give up to get him? He has an albatross of a contract, especially for teams that want to spend long term. He also cannot play there next year because his mere existence is cancerous, even if he's a good guy. Luongo has "voltron junk trade" written all over him.

That makes sense since Chevys haven't been really American in years. :P

and I rooted against Marty in the Olympics, country always comes before club for me.

At most you'd probably have to give up Tallinder, plus one of our d-prospects or a pick and that might even be stretching it. And you could replace Tallinder by bringing back Sal.

I mean hell, LAST time he was traded he only got Alex Auld and other junk in return, and he wasn't as toxic then as he is now. Getting him isn't the problem, having him is.

This. The mistake Vancouver made was signing Schneider to that extension BEFORE trading Luongo, because now they have $9 mil tied up in 2 goaltenders. They fvcked themselves even worse on a Luongo return. He'll go for peanuts when he goes, I have little doubt.

Vancouver can afford to hold on to him until a good offer comes around. And if they were content with junk, he would have been traded a long time ago.

Put it this way: it was a LOT easier to root for team USA in 2010 with choker boy in net for Canada. I wanted us to win in 02, but I didn't get excited when we scored. I couldn't bring myself to actually cheer against Marty. It would just be... Weird.

I mean, I cheered when we scored in the first game against Canada in 2010 when Marty was in net. It felt a little weird, but as far as I'm concerned, if his teammates can score against him no problem, then I can cheer against him.

If Marty goes, I hope the Devils re-sign Hedberg and work him in tandem with one of our young prospects. Hedberg has a good 45 games in him, and he could be an excellent mentor for a young, up-and-coming goaltender.

There's no goalie in our system who is ready for that yet.

Hedberg may go to a team close to his ATL home.

I would not be stunned to see the Flyers go after him.

i dont know guys, you gotta remember this is a business. im all for loyalty to a player, and we have been to brodeur. i would hope for the same loyalty back. the only mary money issue we should be talking about is the discounted contract that marty is willing to take to help make his team better

Not rumors but a lot of speculation on twitter from credible guys (Andy Strickland, EJ Hradek) about Chicago's possible interest in Brodeur. Will be interesting to see if that picks up into any sort of credible rumor.

Like the extension he signed for well below market at the time so that the team had money for people like Gomez?
