The fact that this team sucks is not an excuse for Brodeur to be giving up the goals that he's giving. I don't care if we'd still have the same win-loss record, you put another capable goaltender in net, and I guarantee you that the games would be much closer than they have been this year.
Like it or not, Brodeur has been BAD this season, and it doesn't seem like it's going to get any better. He has seen a very serious decline, and we are going to have to accept that. I'm in no way blaming this season on him, I'm just stating that at this point, most goalies will outplay him.
Most back up Goalie's do out play him,night after night....not blaming him for this whole mess...but he's a big part of it.
