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.

Don't see the Sharks wanting him. They've been high on Stalock as a possible starter for awhile, so I would be surprised if they dump him for a washed up vet. Especially since Niemi's been fine as the man.

I voted no because he'll want to choose where he's going, and have a shot at playoffs/AND being a starter somewhere. I don't think there's a fit.

I meant solely for a playoff run in that case. I have no idea what team would want Marty for anything after this season.

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. 

 

so whats this meeting all about than huh?

 

turn on marty crowd, yeah...and done.

It was to discuss his future with the team. It could mean he was telling Lou he plans to retire after the season, it could be him asking for a trade, it could be Lou telling him that they don't plan on re-signing him, it could be Lou telling him that Cory is the guy from here on out. There's a lot of possibilities, and no one knows for sure.

What a stupid post. 

 

So now he's not allowed to have a behind-the-scenes meeting with the Devils' GM (who also happens to be his friend...that comes across loud and clear in his book) to discuss his future as a Devil (or beyond)?  He just has to "keep quiet" (which he has been, as far as the media goes)?  That makes a lot of sense.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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 just don't see who would take him at a price worth it to both us and him. He sits here he sits in San Jose how much of a difference is it to him at that point

No, because even with a time machine he'd still be transporting his current self back in time to watch his younger self playing kick-arse hockey for the Devils and not wanting anything to do with leaving. What he needs is a fountain of youth, not a time machine.

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

 

We need a goalie in our Tuesday night beer league...sure, he will get more playing time there

 Thank you, that logic was bothering me as well.

We could package a deal Brodeur and S. Gionta neither have a contract for next season, Stephen could play with his brother, sounds like I heard that before.
