I don't see Lou doing much of anything tomorrow. Like Tri has said we don't have the pieces. You could move Fayne, but I don't think you're getting something that can help now. Same thing goes for Zids and Volchenkov. You'd have to move a roster player and a prospect, but still that and 25 cents will get you a bag of chips.

Hey by the way, I didn't see these trades discussed in here yet..

 

[CHI/PHX]David Rundblad and Mathieu Brisebois for 2014 2nd rounder

 

I wonder what the hell happened to Runblad..Sens fans had him pegged as the next coming of Christ a few years ago, seems to just be a trade piece now. 

 

[PHX/WSH] M. Erat+J. Mitchell to Coyotes for R. Klesla+C. Brown+4th Round Pick.

 

Thankfully that puts Erat off the market (theoretically).  One less Lou-type player (read:  useless forward) that could be added.

Calgary, phoenix, NYI, WPG could use him. Anaheim has two good goalies, no need.

 

Anaheim has Hiller. Fasth was traded.

@DarrenDreger: Brodeur is obviously interested in a change and is waiting for the Devils gm to pull the trigger. Another great deadline day story.

They have been using Andersen as of late and he's been good for them. 15 wins and 3 losses with him, Fasth has not been a factor this year.

Anaheim has Hiller. Fasth was traded.

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice
Brodeur: "This is who I am. I’m a Devil and I’m always going to be a Devil regardless happens tomorrow.”

 

He had a lot of good quotes in that interview. It was pretty touching how he talked about wanting to prove to himself that he can still play the game, how he loves playing the game, and how he "worked on his game with his goalie coach." Just the idea of the greatest goalie ever working on his game to get better is pretty humbling. He could easily just say, "Yeah, I have all the records, I don't need to work on my game or tell the media that I'm doing so."

 

You can see it in his eyes that he knows his time is running out and it's kind of hard to watch. I can only imagine doing something everyday for 37 years and then suddenly be on the verge of not having it to do anymore. Must be incredibly difficult to cope with.

I may get sh!t for this but I'd put Marty at third behind Hasek and Roy in the past 30 years

Cory Conacher on waivers? I'd definitely claim him and give him a try in Brunner or Ryders spot.

If Marty does get dealt anywhere, I hope it's Chicago. Maybe he can split some time with Crawford and win his 4th Stanley Cup, would love to see Marty tie Roy in Cups

I don't doubt that Brodeur wants a trade but I doubt it happens. As others have said there isn't really a market for him after Tuesday's moves. Plus, Halak is available from Buffalo, is better, and has a lower cap hit.

If I were Lou I would go after Hemsky since he will be cheap and try to claim Conacher. That's it, don't trade away anything important.

This. And then I wanna see Ryder race Conacher. Hell, Ryder couldn't beat present day Pat Conacher.

I kind of want Hemsky. He'd be comfortable here with all the Czechs, I'm sure he'd work well in the system. I can't understand all the mention of Fayne in these trade talks. He is a top pairing guy, still young, we should hope to keep him for as long as possible.

@TGfireandice
Brodeur didn't want to discuss specifics of his conversation with Lamoriello, but said they discussed rest of this season and next season.

@TGfireandice
Brodeur didn't rule out possibility of signing extension for next season.


If Marty signs an extension for next season, it better be with the agreement that THIS IS IT, and it better be announced in conjunction with a Schneider extension. Marty 1 year, Cory 8 years, Marty rides off into the sunset. The end.


I don't think Schneider will tolerate this. Marty is a drama queen and will whine if he's back here next year. Deboer won't help either if he's still here:

I think the Devils have an ideal situation, with two top goalies. Clearly the torch has been passed and I think PDB has done a great job of rotating them this year. Marty should accept that next year should be his final year and do a victory lap with the Devils.

I'd rather see the trade. I don't want to do another season of Brodeur playing like garbage and our own fans gleefully tearing him up every night. 

 

I'm OK with Marty sticking around the rest of this year (provided PDB doesn't go to him too much), as I'm not sure if the Devils can really upgrade much at the backup position (either from within or outside the organization), but if he's back again next season, then Lou has jumped the shark.  Most people love Marty, even the ones who choose to go the mean-spirited route for the moment, but it should be obvious to EVERYONE (ESPECIALLY guys like Lou and others) that Marty has been well below average for significant stretches the past two seasons.  I don't expect Lou to necessarily say anything about that publicly, but I don't know how he can possibly ignore it privately, especially when Marty's most ardent supporters and fans acknowledge what Marty now is.     

 

I've been one to defend Marty most of the time, and I think most of his quotes get picked apart unfairly, but when he talks about next year, I cringe.  I know that what helps to make the greats great is that they never stop believing in themselves, but good lord Marty, look at your numbers since the beginning of last season, not to mention the numbers of one Cory Schneider.  Yes, there have been some nice stretches that past couple of seasons, but some truly dreadful ones too, and a .900 save% over that period of time, especially on a team that plays pretty good D and keeps shots-against totals down, is just bad.  Sadly, this just seems to be the latest case of a former great being completely unable to differentiate what was from what is.

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.

Pierre LeBrun

Just chatted with Martin Brodeur. He's ok with whatever Lou Lamoriello decides today. But ready for a new challenge if that comes...

 

Brodeur wants to play next season. A new challenge elsewhere with a chance to play more will help gauge him in that decision...
