But Brodeur is just a disgrace right now. He's aged 10 years in 1 offseason. You saw bits and pieces of it in past seasons. He'd begin to tire and go into all out choke mode during the playoffs. Letting in an incalculable amount of softies at bad times. It's all come crashing down now...he is perhaps the worst #1 starter in the NHL
This year he can't do anything. He is being beaten from all angles, all distances. His reflexes are shot, his recovery is poor(takes him forever to get up), his awareness and puck location nonexistent. The glove hand is gone. Yea he's getting no help offensively but you just can't dismiss the garbage goaltending we've been getting from him.
As I type this the Devils are losing 3-0 to the mighty toronto maple leafs, and after getting shelled by the 1983 Islanders 5-1...Brodeur has let up 8 goals in his last 25 shots. He is vulnerable from EVERYWHERE. Literally every mistake ends up in our net, and that can't happen.
Our next game will be a loss against the Rangers on Wed. The only question is will it be a 2-0 loss with Hedberg in net or a 8-0 loss with Brodeur(on 19 soft shots I'm sure)
