Brodeur to Edmonton would be ridiculous. I'm not saying it's impossible, just ridiculous. The Devils have 23 games left and Brodeur is likely to play what...5 of them? Maybe 6.
Edmonton has Bryzgalov and Scrivens...Scrivens they're banking on being the goaltender of the future so they're going to want to take a long look at him. He'll get about as many games there as he does here. Why uproot himself now to Edmonton?
What likely happened is this, Brodeur went to Lou and asked for a trade, Lou will be working on it during the olympic break. Brodeur kept his trade request quiet so as not to disrupt things here too much. If Lou can find someone who wants him, he'll do it...if not, he'll just have to gut it out here.
Brodeur is so entrenched in NJ and there is nowhere even remotely desirable he can go, he just needs to be a supportive teammate to Cory and hope this team makes the playoffs. Keep quiet, help the team any way you can.
The fact that Marty might rather leave NJ to go play a few extra games somewhere else while his current team is in a playoff chase doesn't sit well with me.
