Also from that same article...

Asked if he's denying the report, Lamoriello responded loudly.

"I'm just not even responding to anything anymore today," he said. "I just think it’s incredible the way rumors start. It’s just a disgrace that there is a license to start rumors.

“It just kills to have people deal with people’s lives like this.”

 

The quote is kind of ridiculous because Brodeur doesn't have to be worried. I agree that in general that rumours can mess with athletes and their families, but Brodeur is the driving force behind any deal. He has the NTC. He decides if/where/when he goes...that is to say if Lou will even entertain the idea of trading him.

like tri said earlier, these leaks might have come from brodeur camp (although you'd think lavoie would be leading the charge if so) and lou scuttled the deal b/c of it.

 

still think something is happening. maybe it's hope.

Yeah I'll play advocate here - maybe Lou's furious the deal got leaked.

Lou Lamoriello doesn't respond to rumors, but did say he'd "never" have a player play in a game if a deal to trade him was already agreed on

 

personally dont think hell go to the wild.

Brodeur doesn't have to be worried, but there are other people involved who I'm sure aren't fully up to date about the status of Brodeur's no-trade clause.

And with that folks, the season is over.  Because this media zoo that has become NJ will ultimately cause the place to implode.  Us trading Brodeur for anything short of Jason Pomminville or Mikael Granlund would be a bust because you don't trade the best goalie of all time for "future considerations"...I don't care if the guy is on crutches or in a wheelchair, he stays because he is the best you ever had!

This to me was a given. This might be a Deboer move for nostalgic purposes with no internal pressure, or because Deboer is crazy and has no realization that Brodeur is one of the 3 worst goalie in the NHL this season.

fvck your title, OP. Add the word "Report" and your source. How hard is it to learn these board guidelines?

 

There should be a rule that any non-confirmed reports stay in the trade deadline thread until a valid source reports it. That way we don't get inexperienced posters who just want to break news and so they post their link prematurely. That would solve all the problems we have had with this over the years.

This.  However, this could be a pre-emptive curtain call just in case a deal is made which means the feelers are certainly out there.

Sentimental bullsh!t. I would trade marty for a 3rd line player in a second. Who gives a flying fvck, really. Do you think marty will be remembered for anything other than his accomplishments as a devil?

 

When people think of brett favre, do they go, he was that Viking/Jets quarterback. No he is thought of as one of the best QBs in packer history.

 

Broduer will always be remembered as a devil, helping hose some team out of worthwhile players would be another addition to the many ways marty has made this franchise successful. We need some offensive help in the worst way, this team needs that more than it needs goalie who is literally at the end of his career.

This is nothing like Farve.  He turned into a joke with the retire/unretire multiple times thing.  And you're right, his legacy as a player is with the Packers.  The other nonsense with the Jets and Vikings is just that... nonsense.

Wow it's amateur hour out there for New Jersey Devils fans...

 

Welcome to the trade deadline, folks, this is what it feels like for fans (and players and management) of big market teams 2-3 times a year, especially ones with superstars or expiring contracts. Seeing Lou angrily overreact to the rumors going around reminds me how sheltered and insulated from the media we've been as a team. All this media coverage seems like new territory to everyone from Brodeur himself to Lamoriello, and of course us fans....

Favre with the Vikings was way more successful than marty is going to be wherever he goes. Favre played his best year statistically speaking in 09'-10' with the Vikings. They also made it to the NFC championship, don't see how that is nonsense. He just won't be remembered for that.

Haven't seen this mentioned:

 

What do we get in return (speculation) for Brodeur to Wild? Anything halfway decent?  Sorry if I am late to the party, trying to catch up on the (speculation) details.

There is no way Marty starts tonight if he is supposed to traded. If he starts he is pretty much staying in NJ
