A great Devil, the definition of a hockey player.

Good for him stepping right into another job.

Lets begin the traditional listing of our favorite moments....

I'm going with the SHG against Belfour in Game 4 of the 2000 finals, and the hattrick against the Rags in 2006.

I will never forget Game 5 of the SCF in 2003 when his face got sliced open by a skate. Came back a few minutes later after getting repairs in the locker room. Legendary stuff....

A real hard worker and a warrior. He deserved that extra Cup he won with the Blackhawks, I'm glad for him. A complete Devil type of player.

Scary how quickly these careers just fly by. I still remember watching Brodeur's debut on my friend's seen-better-days old 19" CRT TV...still trying to figure out where the time has gone.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

The only Devils jersey I ever bought (with a players name on the back) was Mad-dogs
all out hard working player...I wish they all had his heart
Too bad there wasn't any room in the Devils organization for him to be with us again...but good luck to him.

I always loved that moment. Can't forget Game 7 against the Panthers either. After that collision with Kopecky, just stitch him up and throw him back on the ice. Always loved that about him. Good luck maddog! I wish the best for him.

Still my favorite all time Devil. The bloody face game is my all time favorite, but I started to love him from all those SHGs his rookie year.
