No, because who is going to make him a starter?  No one.

 

To me, this is Brodeur seeing the writing on the wall - he wants to start next year, and the less ice time he gets this year, the harder it is going to be to get a job like that anywhere.  I could see him going somewhere for a pittance to get a shot to start - I just can't see him being any good there.  The more playing time he gets, the more he'll hurt his chances.

Any where Marty goes it won't be as a starter. If a team trades for him, it's because they want a veteran in the locker room and an experienced guy who can step in if their starter gets hurt. Not a whole lot of teams will be needing that, and who knows how many are on Marty's list if he indeed has asked for a trade. I can think of Chicago, Minnesota, Tampa, and San Jose as teams that may want that piece for a playoff run, but I just don't know if what Brodeur would bring to them would be worth the distraction, nor do I think the Devils would really get much back. So I have to say there won't be a trade.

 

I guess Edmonton could make sense if they want a pointless goalie controversy to end their season. It just seems more and more obvious that Marty will have to hang it up when the season ends.

He hasn't officially asked for a trade. This is all just speculation by us. For all we know, he met with Lou to tell him he plans to retire at the end of the season.

I think it's a safe bet that Marty will be a part of the Devils organization long after he retires. That having been said, it would be in the best interests of the organization to get something for him before he retires. I would imagine that Lou and Marty discussed this idea, and while it is entirely speculation on my part, came to some sort of agreement that if the price is right, Marty will wave his no-trade clause and play a year elsewhere. Unforuntately, I do not think any team will want him as a starter, and no team will give up anything worthwhile to take him as a backup. For that reason, I voted no.

I voted yes. Just a strange gut feeling.

 

If I had to guess where he lands, it's Minnesota or maybe Chicago.

 

Also the discussion of the "secret meeting" has thrown this song into my head that like exactly three people on this board will like but I'm posting it anyway...

I voted yes, with Nashville being the logical choice.

 

Hutton has been horrible, and Dubnyk even worse.  With Rinne not guaranteed to come back this year, this may be the only situation where Marty upgrades the status quo.

#devils Martin Brodeur met with Lou Lamoriello Thursday to talk about his future with the team.

 

Chicago'd probably be an ideal match though I don't really see it happening unless we take some of their garbage back since they have a number of goalies under contract (Khabibulin and LaBarbera, who aren't even playing for them now) and they're too far up against the cap to take him atm.

 

I'd hate him going to Minnesota even more since we'd have to deal with TWO circuses coming to town in late March but that'd be ideal for him too at this point, though they'd have one too many goalies under contract as well unless we took the horrific Backstrom contract or they fobbed it off somewhere else.

I can see that.  They're still in the race being only 4 points back.  And Hutton and Dubnyk are no better than Marty.  I also happen to think the Predators are cool, so I would at least be able to see Marty on another team I like.  Legwand is on the block, and I would definitely do something around Marty, Fayne, and maybe another mid level prospect or pick for Legwand.

well said and why i voted yes; again, why cant he keep quiet while cory is playing amazing?

 

its a stretch though it suggests to me why the team can score for him and is a choking joke for schneider.

 

if your gonna attribute the team scoring with brodeur in net than why not attribute the team not scoring when hes not in net hahah j/k

Other than when reporters asked him specifically about a trade, he hasn't said anything.

jeez, that's depressing....

 

I voted no, too. I can't see Marty actually wanting to go play elsewhere. Also can't see another team wanting him as a starter. It would be too weird to see him end his career for another team.

The bolded is complete horsesh!t...he hasn't said squat lately, and when he did before, he answered the questions being put to him as honestly as he could.  If you're in the "turn on Marty" crowd, fine, whatever, but don't make stuff up to justify it.

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.
