yes. I believe the secret meeting was in fact a trade request, and Lou will use the Olympic break to work the phones and find a destination

PS - i know this topic has been debated in other threads, but I wanted it here specifically for polling purposes, to see how our collective powers of prognostication will fair. And while it might not be an epic moment in our team's season, or even in how many more Wins Brodeur achieves as a result... it will still be an epic moment for almost all Devils fans to see our career HOF netminder play on another squad. 

 

I know personally, that's not something I EVER thought possible.  If you read Brodeur's book, you'd know how important the "1-team" concept seemed to him, and how ferociously loyal he comes off. 

 

Today, he's one of the worst goalies in the game.  But it will still be sad to see his name elsewhere, when he could have instead retired before now and maintained his lifelong career in NJ.

Let him ride the bench and hopefully hang it up after this season. Where is he going to get more playing time, Europe?

No, and I'll tell ya why... because if he was traded it might actually help us. This team has finally caught up with the Mets and Jets.. I knew it was just a matter of time, but I never thought it would happen so fast. :mellow:

I went with yes, though it wouldn't surprise me if he stayed, due to lack of interest from other teams, or Lou (out of respect) not wanting to trade him for a mid-to-low round pick.  The Devils aren't in any position to give him a showcase start or two, so the latest start an interested team will have to gauge him on is the outdoor disaster back in late January.  In five January starts, he put up an .862 save%, and the Devils went 1-3-1.   

 

But I have a strange gut feeling that some team thinks he's got something, even though the performances scream inconsistency bordering on bad.  I just don't know what a team should be willing to give up for that "something".  If I'm a GM, I can't give up anything more than a 4th-rounder for him...past success simply can't mean much here, and the most respectable part of his numbers (wins) was built more on good luck and fortune than it was good play.  Maybe some GM thinks he's got another 10 game burst like the one he had from 10/27-11/25 (7-3 record, only 5 goals allowed in the three losses, .934 save%).

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?

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.

I think he will be, and I'll respect it.  The more I've thought about it, the more I've realized it won't do anything to tarnish his reputation or his legacy here.

 

The man thinks he can still play - why not give him the chance to do so.

the problem is the return would be minimal + we'd have to get a backup in return (because we'd need one) so we wouldnt get a full value. So i dont think it's worth it but i think it will happen, he wouldnt be worth much more than just a backup swap really so whats the point?

 

If he goes and we somehow get a pick i just hope its to a bottom team so that we get an earlier pick if theres one.

He has a contract.   We need a backup keeper.  So I see very few scenarios where it makes sense to trade him with just 23 games left in the season.

 

He'll be free to do as he pleases on April 14 (or at most another week later if we make the first round)

No for the simple reason= we have no back up goalie.. But there will be a trade.. one or two of our defenseman. If there is none Lou has lost his mind.

 

I just hope who ever it is we get, if we get.. is UNDER 30.

I said this in the trade thread, but you could have a Terreri-for-Vanbiesbrouck kind of deal, a goalie swap.  Marty goes somewhere where the starter isn't as good as Cory or lacks experience, and the Devils get someone back who's younger and has a pure backup mentality (I know the Terreri-for-Beez was more the Devils trying to improve the backup situation more than anything else).  It all goes back to whether or not someone really thinks Marty still has something left and can be an effective starter if needed.

I voted that he will be traded.  This will have very little to no impact to his legacy with the Devils.

I said no, but I suppose he might be part of a package deal to make the cap hits even out.

Marty - Bryz makes more and more sense the more I think about it, though.  A simple swap.

 

Devils get a serviceable backup (albeit a slightly crazy one), Edmonton gets their '1B' goaltender to split games/mentor Scrivens.

 

It's a deal that doesn't get done unless Marty asks for a trade though, obviously.
