Back from serving as an assistant coach on Team Canada in the world championships in Minsk, Belarus, Devils coach Pete DeBoer says he doesn’t know yet what will happen with goaltender Martin Brodeur, but he’d welcome having the future Hall of Famer and Cory Schneider back as his two goaltenders again next season.

 

The 42-year-old Brodeur, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, has already stated he will explore the market before deciding what he’ll do, including possibly returning to the Devils, and also hasn't ruled out retirement if he can’t find the right fit for him. “First off, having been able to coach Marty Brodeur for three years has been privilege,” DeBoer said in an interview with Hockey Night in Canada Radio Wednesday. “You talk about a guy that will be able to tell his grandkids that he coached the best goaltender of all time and Jaromir Jagr on the same team, that’s something that I’ll always remember. “I did have a conversation with Marty at the end of the year. I think we’re in a wait and see kind of situation here. I haven’t gotten any updates on that. I can tell you if he wants to come back, I would welcome him with open arms.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

For many, the Rangers success makes them ill. Stuff like this makes me ill. I don't think it's just PR, anymore.

 

Btw, we have a small discussion of the interview TG is transcribing in another thread posted earlier.

If Lou says it I'll be ill.  He's the one that worries me vis-a-vis Marty.  

 

Pete can say what he wants, Pete was saying the same things when he benched Marty for weeks at a time.  Pete knows darn well he can't have any blood on his hands if (when?) Marty leaves.  Heck, it's entirely possible they know Marty's gone anyway.  He certainly seemed to want out at the deadline but Lou wouldn't deal him and nothing really changed after that.

Wouldn't be surprised if he's back.  Don't think another team will want him for the role that Marty is hoping for.

 

I think playing time is going to be 80/20 Cory this year, and Marty will know this going in unlike last year when he rightfully had to lose the #1 job, rather than having it handed over to Cory.

Marty will realize his new role IMO.  Guy is Devil for life and a team player.  Don't forget the money this guy passed up in order to stay with New Jersey.

DeBoer still doesn't get it, so he cannot have Brodeur.  Brodeur was still starting non-back to back games in March.  That cannot happen.

I still think Pete is being Mr. Nice here. I really can't see them bringing Marty back unless they announce that he's back and will be strictly in a backup role. Otherwise they'll be too many questions. Also, I don't see them resigning Marty without signing Cory first. They don't want Cory getting the wrong ideas.

The decision is up to Brodeur. There is no way Lou says no to Marty. Marty knows Cory needs to be the starter. He cares about the organization. Him coming back would be a detriment, and holy crap it be an awful spot for Cory.

 

I can't see Brodeur coming back to NJ to sit on the bench all season for Cory. And if somehow he does, I have no comfort in Pete treating Brodeur as a 15-18 game backup. It probably turn into a 52-30 BS split.

 

fvckK YOU PETE FOR DOING ALL THESE OFF-SEASON INTERVIEWS. I was in such a calm place.

Also, I actually can see Lou saying no. I think finally he can be the bearer of bad news here. He's not in contract anymore. If Marty wants to turn against Lou for this, that's on him. There's no blank checks.

The issue I have with the interview is the supposed conversation at the end of the season.  What could that conversation be?  'Hey Marty, thanks for the .900 SV% and being the worst shootout goalie in the league last year, we'd love to have you back, at age 42.'

 

Ryan Miller is going to have trouble finding a starting gig.  How is Brodeur supposed to do it?

Yep. 

 

If Brodeur is back, I don't expect this to be anything more than an aggravating clusterfvck.  Cory deserves to be the #1 with no nonsense, and there are younger backups out there who can be better than Marty's been the last two seasons and can mentally handle being a backup.  End of story.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.

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.

Thing is just based on his words and actions last year he won't and Pete and Lou will be hard to put their foot down on this. He really should just retire and enjoy brodeur night for when they retire his number for his last hurrah.

You're assuming that he'll also succeed in a lesser role.  That is far from being a sure bet.  I've said it before, but the Devils are going to need good performances from their backup too.  Two seasons of .901 play suggest Marty will be shaky at best.

I'm hoping (but not 100% sure) that this is nothing more than lip service to Brodeur...and the decision has already been made to cut ties with him. However, after Brodeurs career is over we do have to stay on good terms with him, so maybe this is with an eye towards that

 

You can't expect the Devils to bash the guy...or even tell harsh truths about him. We have to keep the fantasy going to keep him happy

Just my opinion but I get the vibe that DeBoer continually lies about Brodeur in the press and doesn't really believe what he says. He's somewhat powerless in the situation given how tight Lou/Brodeur are. I'm sure he felt some pressure last year to play Brodeur against his better judgement knowing Lou's track record of firing coaches. Gotta keep Lou and Brodeur happy, unfortunately.

Hopefully Lou just tells Brodeur it's over this summer. I'd feel horrible for Schneider (and our chances of retaining him) if Brodeur is back next year.
