still not sure it's 100% legit but really. With ALLL the quotes Marty fed the medias for the last few months it absolutely make sense. 

 

Still really pissing me off that he bent the team over to give him the outdoor game and the detroit game eventhough he was OBVIOUSLY not the right choice and yet he's acting like a princess (again if thats a legit report)

I think the team willingly gave him the Outdoor game

 

He may have strongarmed them for the Detroit game though...but at least we won

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...

 

This is the type of stuff that annoys people re: Brodeurs quotes

Great. Leave it at that

 

But ready for a new challenge if that comes...

 

 

"But IF I get traded"

 

"Should I get dealt"

 

"If the opportunity presents itself"

 

Brodeur just can't help himself to be this honest. Honest to the point where Devils fans feel miffed that their franchise goalie wants to leave them over something so petty. Where he can go somewhere and literally get about 2-3 more starts there then he would get here. Clearly this will sway opinions around the league regarding signing him in 2014-15

 

Brodeur is honest about everything except his ability to play goal in the NHL

re: marty and next year, listening to postgame with sherry and matt, they said pretty assuredly that while marty wants to play next year, it wouldn't be with the devils. i mean, that really means nothing but just interesting to hear it from them.

Rather than all this talk about us losing a player who is essentially our backup goaltender (Albeit one who is a legend of the game and our franchise) it would be nice to see the Devils mentioned persuing some options to make the team better at forward.

I like this. Everyone is focused on the Marty thing, and maybe Lou pulls something else out of nowhere.

Could definitely see this. Marty may be the media's focus, but there is no chance it is Lou's.

More like the Marty thing distracts us from Lou leaving Larsson in the AHL the rest of the year and makes us feel better about claiming Gomez as our big addition.

per Kypreos 

#Devils will try and move Brodeur. He told his GM last nite he wants out. Lou told him not great market but he'd try his best to do it.

 

I can't imagine a scenario in which Kypreos gets that sort of insider information. Really, Kypreos, you somehow know that Lou told Brodeur in some closed office last night that it's not a great market out there???

Just remember, Brodeur has given a list of 8 teams he wants to go too. I imagine they are good teams. He says he doesn't need to be a starter but wants to play more. So Brodeur needs a situation where he gets in more than 30/63 games (his current games started to Devils games played) on a good team?

You can only laugh.

Maybe Marty needs to go somewhere else to be reminded how good he had it here. No other team is going to give him legacy games.

While 7 can be a bit over the too with Marty at times that one liner is sadly true.

Then it'll have to be next year.  No one wants him.  You can basically tell by the fact that there has been zero mention of him drawing any interest from any other team besides Minnesota, and that ship has sailed.  Just go look at the fairly reliable twitter sources.  They seem to pick up on the smallest of chatter and even preliminary discussions between teams.  I have yet to read a tweet from any of them that Brodeur is on any other team's radar.

Clearly Marty is leaking like crazy, trying to pressure Lou into a trade.

gotta feel like marty's list is half "play more on a good team" and half "okay here's my shot at a 4th cup." i just cant see seven or eight teams willing to give this guy legitimate playing time. it's not like his last few starts have been a highlight reel of what he can do - last night he was fine enough but damn did it look like he had no idea where the puck was 85% of the time. i love marty but he's delusional if he thinks he has a good stretch left in him. i hate the circus this is creating. just give us our crappy defenseman acquisition and scott gomez and let's be done with this deadline.

Im not a big stats/numbers guy (especially with Marty still able to win games) but how can he not realize hes just a backup now? Hes making a mistake by wanting to be traded. Just come back next year as back up, get 700 wins and ride off into the sunset...
