I hope he gets a gig with another team and proves us all wrong.

Been saying that since day one. Checking twitter and comments from a few online sites, Brodeur is perceived as the new Favre. It's all jokes.

Martin Brodeur free agency is Stage I of the McDavid sweepstakes. No other goalie will demand 50 starts with an .880 SV%. Great tank piece.

Love you, Marty, but geez — go away. RT @Real_ESPNLeBrun: Martin Brodeur ready to test free-agent market, http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/11044435/martin-brodeur-test-free-agent-market …

Martin Brodeur needs to retire. Don't ruin your legacy bro. Call it quits while people respect you
I would love for Marty to be great, but it would be ridiculous to think that he might. He even said that this year proved to him that he could be a good goalie. He was atrocious this season, and it's only going to get harder when he goes on a team that isn't so good defensively. Be a backup in Toronto? Even with his save percentage staying the same, he'd have a GAA in the mid-to-late 3s on that team.
We're talking about a 42-year-old goalie. If any GM other than Lou gets fooled into taking a goalie at that age...he deserves to get crucified. There has never been a goalie in NHL play somewhat decently at 42. Very few have made it there or crazy enough to attempt to, so credit Marty for that.
Having said all that, it be incredible if he still put together 25 solid backup games to have a great end to his career. Then again, he might just want to come back and do it all again if he does alright this season.
