[Now Dead]Devils, Wild Agree To Deal That Would Send Brodeur To Wild

141 posts in this topic

... ? I just copied pasted the title of the article word for word

 

Just saying - if you're going to post an article about an unsubstantiated rumor, at least but [RUMOR] in the title.  ESPECIALLY with a senative topic like this one.

 

(GIVE ME MOD POWERS DM, LET ME FIX THIS sh!t FOR YOU :lol:)

I got 2 in 102 for $15 apiece about 10 minutes after it was announced Marty was starting. And this is why I didn't wait.

“People are out of their minds spreading rumors,” Lamoriello told NJ.com Tuesday. “It’s unbelievable to even hear these types of things.” - LL

 

 

But... it IS Lou...

This could just be a Devils ploy to drive up attendance for tonight for a fake farewell gig ;-)

It makes way, way more sense for the Wild to go after Halak. I think Brodeur's play may have made his decision for him.

Also from that same article...

Asked if he's denying the report, Lamoriello responded loudly.

"I'm just not even responding to anything anymore today," he said. "I just think it’s incredible the way rumors start. It’s just a disgrace that there is a license to start rumors.

“It just kills to have people deal with people’s lives like this.”

All smoke and mirrors at this point.  Only time will tell.

The quote is kind of ridiculous because Brodeur doesn't have to be worried. I agree that in general that rumours can mess with athletes and their families, but Brodeur is the driving force behind any deal. He has the NTC. He decides if/where/when he goes...that is to say if Lou will even entertain the idea of trading him.

like tri said earlier, these leaks might have come from brodeur camp (although you'd think lavoie would be leading the charge if so) and lou scuttled the deal b/c of it.

 

still think something is happening. maybe it's hope.

Yeah I'll play advocate here - maybe Lou's furious the deal got leaked.

Brodeur doesn't have to be worried, but there are other people involved who I'm sure aren't fully up to date about the status of Brodeur's no-trade clause.

And with that folks, the season is over.  Because this media zoo that has become NJ will ultimately cause the place to implode.  Us trading Brodeur for anything short of Jason Pomminville or Mikael Granlund would be a bust because you don't trade the best goalie of all time for "future considerations"...I don't care if the guy is on crutches or in a wheelchair, he stays because he is the best you ever had!

Lou Lamoriello doesn't respond to rumors, but did say he'd "never" have a player play in a game if a deal to trade him was already agreed on

 

personally dont think hell go to the wild.

 

 

This to me was a given. This might be a Deboer move for nostalgic purposes with no internal pressure, or because Deboer is crazy and has no realization that Brodeur is one of the 3 worst goalie in the NHL this season.

fvck your title, OP. Add the word "Report" and your source. How hard is it to learn these board guidelines?

 

There should be a rule that any non-confirmed reports stay in the trade deadline thread until a valid source reports it. That way we don't get inexperienced posters who just want to break news and so they post their link prematurely. That would solve all the problems we have had with this over the years.

Lamoriello: "I believe in this team and I’m doing whatever I can to make it better.”

Lou seems to have calmed down a little...
