That's how the business world works sometime, the person with more experience gets special treatment. I'm not saying it's right, but I'm not going to sit here, bitch, and point the finger at Brodeur for simply wanting to play his sport. We shouldn't be wasting time bitching and moaning when Schneider is clearly our starter, now and in the future.
How is Schneider clearly the starter? After tonight, Brodeur will have started 32 games, Schneider 34. That doesn't seem clear to me, and given NJ's inability to divorce themselves from Brodeur, it doesn't seem like it's clear in the future either.
Brodeur can complain about playing time all he wants. He doesn't deserve more playing time. He deserves much less. And if his preferred destinations really did include Pittsburgh and Los Angeles, as Chris Stevenson reported on deadline day, he's utterly lost his mind. If he's the face of the franchise, it's a franchise content to miss the playoffs to serve one man.
