“My kids want me to play,” Brodeur said. “Actually, the twins want me to go to Minnesota, the other wants me to go play for Ottawa."

 

 

 

“Anthony goes, ‘Dad, you’ve got to sign with Ottawa because I can stay with you,’” Brodeur said. “Selfish kid!”

 

So could Pittsburgh if the Penguins give up on Marc-Andre Fleury, which seems to be possible, too.

“Maybe,” Brodeur said.

 

How about returning home to Montreal? Brodeur’s thought about that, but sees that scenario as unlikely because Canadiens No. 1 goalie Carey Price isn’t rested much when healthy.

“It would be hard with what they have in net over there,” Brodeur said. “I don’t mind going in a diminished role a little bit, but not to the extreme of playing 10 games. That’s not enough.”

 

 

Seems to me that Brodeurs mind is elsewhere already. So why do we need to keep him happy by giving Cory's start tonight to one of the worst goalies in hockey?

 

What is going on here?

He never saw this opportunity coming… not after Cory Schneider played almost every game for two months … not after knowing for sure that being traded before the NHL’s March 5 deadline was a real possibility.


Never, huh? Even after he bitched to Lou, he never saw this opportunity coming eh? Ok. Sure.

So he's already checked out mentally, that's good.

Seen enough Pete?  Enough to run with Cory for the rest of the season?  Nah of course not.

 


“The thing is I always believed in me,” said Brodeur, 17-14-4 for the season with a 2.51 GAA and .902 save percentage in 35 games. “Not believe, believe … but I felt good all season long. I stayed healthy, but when you don’t get the chance to prove it, it makes it a little harder.

 

He's played more this year than he would've anywhere else.  It's just sad he doesn't realize it.

I'll give Zach Parise some credit here. When bigmouth JP said that Zach would love to play for Tortorella during the 2012 ECF, Zach flipped a sh!t and immediately went to his dad to make sure that stuff was retracted.

 

Could you imagine, game 6 of the ECF and Parise is like "yea I could see myself playing for the Rags...and my wife really wants me in Minnesota. Pittsburgh? Maybe?

 

Devils are scratching and clawing for a playoff spot. They actually put the POS in goal tonight...Brodeur is thinking about playing in Montreal

Jesus H, it's enough already!  Your team is on the outskirts of a playoff race, but isn't 100% dead just yet.  Can you just say "I'm still focused on the present. and what's happening here..the future will work itself out soon enough, but right now I'm still a Devil." or something to that effect?  PLEASE?!

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.

I am overjoyed to hear this kind of thing.  Although wrapped inside there is the delusion that every team would love to have Brodeur.  I could easily imagine Ottawa signing him though because they are desperate for any revenue - they could trade Craig Anderson somewhere and go with Lehner-Brodeur.

i know where you're coming from but this makes my fvcking blood boil. i mean, i'm going tonight and i almost want to bring a sign during warmups on the glass that reads "marty - why don't you give the devils a chance and leave now."

 

this is the troll job to end all troll jobs - it's almost like he's taunting the entire organization and fanbase with these comments. the truth is, the vast majority of devils fans still love marty and think he's great and are probably heartbroken to hear this kind of thing. is he so thick to think that the many posters here who know he's hot garbage are in the minority when it comes to devils fans in general?

 

edit - part of me thinks that marty is so fvcking deluded on his play that he's actually driving his price up for lou. like "hey lou, all these teams want me - you better give me another 2/8 deal or i just might leave you!" what's scarier is that lou might buy it.

That's what bothers me the most. I'm not a big Brodeur fan so I don't care if he's in another jersey next season...but all the Devils fans that still worship him, he just doesn't give a sh!t how much he's hurting them.

 

He can consider, think about, decide with his family whatever he wants for next season...but when asked about it in the media you have to say no comment and that you're only focused on beating the Coyotes tonight.

Brodeur sees the writing on the wall, and he's just being honest.  Yeah, he's talking about these things, but I'm thinking that he cant find a job elsewhere and will likely be crawling back to Lou asking for a small 1-year deal

This interview is for everyone who thinks Brodeur does nothing wrong and just asks the questions during his availability. This is Brodeur agreeing to a special interview request by a reporter who has been on the beat for 3 full months. The comments are ridiculous. 100% uncalled for comments.

 

On another note, although Avery is a classless douche, Brodeur still deserved to get fired on by Avery for even addressing his stint with Dancing on the Stars. You go after Avery...well...you are going to get burned hard. This is what happens when you've never heard of the words "no comment".

I initially defended his honesty, but now it's just bad taste.  Openingly naming other teams he might play for when there's not only 10 games left in this one, but also it's well-known that the Devils will likely have to win 8+ games to squeak in?  At the rate the Devils are going, he'll be able to talk about his future and other teams in just over two weeks.  He can't friggin' wait until then?  Even if you hate it here and have had enough, can you just put a clamp on it until April 13?

When he lets in the soft goal tonight, with the next save give him a round of applause. What's he going to do, be even more passive-aggressive? Leave? (please...). Borrow an Ottawa/Pittsburgh jersey someplace and hold it up behind him during warmups.

 

Or how about just be indifferent to him in the (hopefully) short time he has left here? 

 

But, maybe, with time now winding down in the season and a loss or two from being gone, perhaps people should give a little back to him now in a capacity that lets him know he's lost respect in the eyes of the people who loved him over 20 years.
