Goalie Jeff Frazee had a forgettable season at the University of Minnesota last winter. In the eyes of some, he was no longer a legitimate long-term successor to Martin Brodeur.
As the 2005 draft choice (second pick, 38th overall by the Devils) takes part in the team's develoipmental camp at the Prudential Center, there is renewed hope that he can turn his game around and start climbing the ladder to the NHL.

"His career is on the way up," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "He's a genuine prospect. His career is on the upswing. We look at him as a top prospect."
It is one of the reasons why the Devils brought Scott Clemmensen back, to work with Frazee at Lowell (AHL) this season.
"He (Clemmensen) seems like a great guy," Frazee said today. "He's played in the NHL. He's definitely someone I hope to learn from."
Frazee, 21, is hesitant to talk about what happened last year in college. He was viewed as Minnesota;s No. 1 goalie, but lost the job and was criticized by the coaching staff.

Brodeur is 36.. Hes been in excellent shape and has never sustained injury.. so I think Marty can play to like 43 or 44 if he really wants.. By the time Marty is like 43 or 44, Frazee will be like 29 or 30.. I dont think he will still be in the system by that age

Wow, really good point. Having the future of the franchise be 30 isn't smart at all...

43 or 44 is really old to be playing hockey, and goalies usually retire earlier than skaters. I'll be amazed if he is still playing in 2015.

Dominik Hasek? 43. Maybe 44 was pushing it.. by I believe Marty can go a bit past 40..

No one knows how he'll turn out. The Devils must see something in him if they are investing in him, and bringing in Clemmer. I'm not saying he'll be a true number one, but remember, in the summer of 1993, Marty was about 4th on the depth chart so you just never know. The other 'big' goalies in the 90 draft were Potvin and Kidd, and they are long gone.

People may need to come to grips with the fact that Marty's successor may be mediocre. It's gonna take some getting used to if it happens.

I think the Devils will give Frazee every opportunity to be Marty's back up by 2010-11, and I think he'll be the first guy they look to when Marty hangs em up in 2013. Unless, of course they draft a kid who surprises them before that. Either way, with how Lou works, Marty's successor comes from within the organization.

I don't think Frazee will be the successor for Marty. The same thing was said about Clemmenson. Marty still has another 4-5 years I think. So it will still be a while before his replacement is found.

Nobody ever said that about Clemmy :lol:

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I'm already used to it. A point out of first, with games in hand? Granted, we are just 1/2-way through the season, but I could live with this type of season EVERY year, post-Marty.
