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...

 

Because he's been the best at what he has done for, well, his whole life...that leads to a pretty huge ego and also some of these  blinders.jpg (blinders).

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???

 

If he got the news from Brodeur's agent, sure.

I could see the logic of Brodeur wanting a trade just to prepare himself for not being here next year, to get used to the idea that he won't get to tell the coach what games he wants to play and so forth.  But again I can't find an interested team.  MAYBE Tampa, if they dealt us Lindback and NJ picked up half Brodeur's salary and threw something in.

Claiming Conacher off waivers is an easy decision. He's a good player.

also if he can go somewhere to get more playing time this season to prove he deserves a decent contract for next year. Starting 5 of the final 25 here isn't going to garner him much interest in the ufa market in July. If he can get ten starts somewhere else and put up decent numbers maybe he fools someone into thinking he can carry a larger load next year.

They discussed the Brodeur situation on TSN's Trade Centre and they were all befuddled on why he thinks he has a place to play, let alone play more. They also cited his poor save %.

No good team, or team on the cusp, will play a guy with a .899 save percentage in 10 of their last 19 or 20 games.

This whole Marty situation is just so odd.  This whole year he has been clamoring on about how he wants to play more, but now he just wants to move on.  As evidenced in the past, he'll get his 4 or 5 starts here.  Does he honestly think he is going to get more time elsewhere and for a contender at that? He seems a bit too eager to move on.  There has to be some hard feelings towards Lou for not letting him know about the Schneider trade

I think he honestly does.  The greats have a hard time knowing when they're done..he's one of the worst goalies in the league this season statistically, but I'm sure he believes that's only because he wasn't given enough of a chance.

 

Bleh Marty...can't you just bow out gracefully..I'm foreseeing an ugly retirement situation here.

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 pursuing some options to make the team better at forward.

:hail:          thank you.

I just don't see where all this "I want to play more" stuff is coming from? He's a .899 save percentage goalie that's started 30 out of the Devils 62 games this year. Brodeur is acting like he's gotten 10 starts. "I need to play more, I want to play" 

 

HE'S PLAYED!

it's kind of sad - you have every analyst under the sun chiming in that he's done - he's washed up - he's NOT the starter anymore nor will he be a starter on ANY halfway decent team. he's lost his playing time here. his stats are some of the worst in the league. WHAT is he seeing that we don't see? okay, cool, he still thinks he's an elite goalie. but does he truly think the ENTIRE world is wrong here? will he see it as a slap in the face if the friggen islanders are the only team who ends up showing interest?

it's hard not to get a little annoyed with the guy because of his ego. of course it screams of "what have you done for me lately" but still - it's cringe worthy. i really really really had hoped marty could have bowed out gracefully and accepted his demise but if this gets ugly, this will leave a sour taste in a lot of fans mouths.

to me really this trade deadline is the PERFECT occasion to get rid of Salvador, few teams are injured on D and if youre asking for a.... 4th for a guy signed for another year, who can be a decent shut down guy.. has leadership apparently... lol 

 

and it would make room for the kids. Get fvcking Larsson out of the AHL for the love of god.

So a friend of mine just texted me and said Marty and a 4th to Montreal for Big Gionta. Didn't say where he saw it just that it was unconfirmed . Take it with a grain of salt.

You're assuming he's even asking or expects to be traded to a good team.  It may very well be the opposite, that he'd prefer to go to a team that's barely in contention if not at all where he could get 10 starts to show that he still has something in the tank.  If the report that he gave a list of teams is accurate, it's probably something about the particular locations rather than the team's win-loss record. 

 

He might even accept a trade to Winnipeg.  Pavelec's numbers are actually worse than Marty's in some respects, and his save percentage is basically the same.  Probably not straight up for something, but part of a package.

 

Like I say though, I don't think he'll be traded.  For a name like that that is known to be on the market, someone that is half-way credible on twitter would have mentioned that a specific team has interest.  I haven't seen anything to that effect, so I doubt it happens.
