Lol, just as I thought.
With Hedberg joining the Devils, there will be another season of attention on whether Brodeur plays fewer games.
“The more I play, the better and I feel and the more we win. It’s all about making the playoffs,” Brodeur said. “You can’t have success in the playoffs if you don’t make the playoffs.
“We’ll see, but I think having him back me up is a big luxury.”
Doesn’t having Hedberg set the stage for more rest for Brodeur?
“We thought the same when Weeksie (Kevin Weekes) came in,” he said. “He had played 300 games.
“I think what (Hedberg) is going to bring is that ability if I don’t play well, or I’m tired or if I get hurt. You have a guy you’re not afraid to put in there. I’ve always liked him. I don’t know him much, but I know him enough to be comfortable about having him around. When we played against each other we’d always say hi to each other.
