I don't think Brodeur ever intended to sign Day 1. I think he wanted to take his time and wait for all the offers to come in, then evaluate them, talk to the GMs, etc. Now he's under the delusion that there will be lots of teams interested in his services. Plus he doesn't want to get caught up in the 'frenzy' - there's only a few more opportunities for him to say to the media how exciting free agency is, and to be 'the big name' in free agency. He'll still generate headlines by his unsignedness.

St. Louis is still a theoretical landing spot; I forgot about them. But boy are potential destinations closing out fast.

We'll know tomorrow, I think. If Brodeur's still giving optimistic interviews, he'll sign somewhere eventually. If he's not talking to the media at all, his opportunities will have closed up.


I was thinking St. Louis too but i think they are goin to give Jake Allen his chance. I forget the exact number but I think he was over .930 in the AHL last year.

I'm hearing Brodeur has narrowed his choices down to two....KHL and Swedish League.

LeBrun tweeted that Brodeur talked with Pittsburgh and Tampa and there wasn't a fit, and that he's prepared to wait 'all summer [if necessary]'.  Boy, and I thought I was told that there were 6 teams interested and he was guaranteed to go somewhere.

Wasn't a fit with his salary demands, his role, the amount of games, his ability to tell the coach when he plays, the guaranteed Habs home games....or was it all?

This is exactly why I get frustrated every time he speaks. This is tough to watch, it sounds like he could have signed with a team or two but he wanted more money. I thought he just wanted to play....

Please just retire, it was a fun and memorable last game as a Devil. Go out on that note.

There might have been six teams interested until they talked with him lol...Toronto was supposed to be hot for him early on but that cooled significantly.

He can wait all summer if he wants, all the chairs are getting filled quick.

When I saw this, I realized Marty must have went off the deep end completely

 

He is trying to dictate playing time AND making financial demands?!?!?

 

Just hang em up #30, it was a great run

He can't think that he's still going to get paid 4.5 or 5 million a year.  THAT's delusional.  I hope Cory understands this thing that Brodeur doesn't seem to get.  This nagging fact that there's only 60 spots, if there's one available, you take it, especially if your reasoning is for "the love of the game".  If players would be in the NHL for simply and only the "love of the game", we would see a lot more players on lower salaries regardless of the team.  That being said, back to Marty. 

I can't imagine that he's asking for that much money, but I don't think he has enough experience in the free agent scene and isn't nearly aggressive enough.  I'm sure Pittsburgh was looking at all the available options. 

"We can sign Marty Brodeur for 2.5/3million per year or we can sign someone like Greiss, who's younger, better, and cheaper than Brodeur." 
"You sold me! Mr. Lemieux!"

I feel for you Marty, I really do.  I can imagine that being a free agent 'tender is very different to being a skater free agent.  Just simply less jobs out there.

vokoun, bryz, thomas are still out there and reimer asked for a trade so teams have younger and better options than Marty i'd think and there's only a few spots left.

 

if marty signs i assume its gonna go kind of like turco in his last season

Brodeur probably wants $2M.  Can't imagine where his agent has told him where that is going to come from.

I think Lou can wait this out too.  Clemmer has a 2 way deal.   This experience should wake Marty up.  1-year deal here for $1 million and retire a Devil.

God I hope not.

I'd love to see him retire now, always having been a Devil. 

I can accept him playing another season for someone else, even if I think he shouldn't.

But please, please, pullleeeeeeezze don't come back for another season with the Devils.

Griess is picked up for 1 Mill by Pitt

Nabakov 1.5 Mill from Twampa

Peters 1.9 Mil from Washington

 

idk how high of an offer Lou would go but I bet the highest offer 30 has is or would be from NJ (to be a happy backup 20 game tops)

 

anyone else think the same non-trade interest for 30 at the trade deadline is just as quiet in free agency?

GMs have really done their homework on Marty. They see a guy who's not only put up a .901 save% the past two seasons, but has really been more of an .880ish guy save for a hot streak or two, is old, and whose GAA benefitted heavily from the team in front of him keeping shots down. They see that Cory put up very good numbers behind the same team. They know that it's just about impossible to hide a goalie who's only going to decline further. And they know there's better goalies who cost less who will embrace their roles quietly and with no negative fanfare.

GMs, to their credit, have been able to see past the name, the achievements, and the 688 wins and see Marty for what he is: no longer good, old, and potentially a headache. Sucks for Marty, but hopefully he's starting to wake up and smell reality.

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.
