hopefully he can add another thread about it


Still don't get it, but that's okay as it's Brodeur's and the fans day. Hopefully there will be dozens of threads on this expressing the joy over such a monumental achievement.

Again, it's a once in a lifetime event, don't you believe that now is not the time to play traffic cop on this board?

Assuming he avoids long term injuries and signs an extension after this contract he will reach 700 for sure. He'll hit 600 during this season. All this with approx 2 lost seasons worth of games. Its incredible.



I tend to think the full lockout year and possibly his injury last year could have helped prolong his career. He did get a year older during the lockout, but it is a year less of the rigorous pounding of an NHL schedule on his body...but who knows?

Widely acknowledged as the 'greatest' to play the game. Personally I hate the dou**ebag and wish him nothing but failures in his coaching/management career.

But this is about our legendary netminder Martin Brodeur! Another heartfelt congratulations Marty as you are simply just the best to ever play the game!

Well done my good man, well done!

I'll give you a slight littel hint...

I love how the guy makes a thread about an awesome moment in Devils history because he is clearly very excited about it and you guys wanna crucify him cause he spelled Gretzky wrong. Who cares?

Did anyone catch the post game last night where they broke out the players that played in games where Marty had his shutouts?

Did I here correctly that Elias has played in the most games that Marty had shutouts??

I looked at the above video link and all they had were the Elias/Rolston/Jacques interviews.

104 shutouts. Incredible. Everyone talks about these records asking will anyone beat Brodeur's records, but what they forget is Brodeur is going to add a lot of wins and a whole bunch of shutouts to these records. Hopefully we witness a lot more shutouts and especially a lot more wins.

i don't think the shutout record will be touched - i don't think the nhl will let defense rule like it did during brodeur's prime. in 10 years, it's going to look just as insurmountable as gretzky's points record does now.

There is just so much to it. This record is helped by Brodeur playing on a team that plays such a defensive system. It also helps that Brodeur played under such an amazing GM who built such a strong team year in and year out. Obviously Brodeur is a gigantic factor of the system being so good and the team being so good. But I think Greg said it well in his piece, don't think for a second that Joseph is getting 104 shutouts for the Devils.

Even if there is a goalie as good as Brodeur out there, he would need to play for a great defensive team year after year. He'd need to stay healthy every season. Even then it be so hard with the all the rule changes, although I think that is overblown. Scoring is once again down and there have been plenty of shutouts around the league.

i can't agree about that, joseph was an excellent goaltender. it's unclear what he would've done with a real defense.

i think the league will constantly be jiggering the rules trying to get more scoring - although with the economy tanking, lower arbitration awards may win the day

I remember that. IIRC, Elias was with Marty for 80 shutouts and Stevens was for 70, maybe 71. Don't remember who else was up there (probably Sarge, Nieds, Dano, Whitey, etc.).

I was at the Fraser signing we talked about the Retro jerseys. He says the team is excited to wear them and Clarkson was running around the locker room with his red helmet on like a madman.
