Once again Brodeur addressed his future beyond this season. He thinks he has a few years left.
“I think so. I’m really enjoying this ride regardless of what happens in the next month or two months,” he said. “I’m enjoying coming to the rink and playing hockey. I don’t want to sit back and five years from now say, ‘Oh, I should have played one more.’ The decision on whether I’m going to go or nor will come later on, but as of now I’m enjoying myself. I’m really liking it.”
Coach Pete DeBoer agrees Brodeur isn’t done.
“From a guy that’s in his 40s, he looks a lot better than I do,” DeBoer said with a laugh. “A credit to him. It’s amazing the level he’s at, especially considering the number of games he’s played. This guy hasn’t been a 50-game-a-year guy. He’s 70 or 80, plus playoffs. That’s a lot of games on that body and he looks like he’s not done yet. He’s got some years left in him.”
