I wish Brodeur well but damn am I wishing for this too. Not against Marty at all, this is 100% just to shut up those fans who can't let go of him. There are many fans who I see are making the trip out there to watch Brodeur try to pad his ego further by going after 700 wins.
I just find it funny how people have for years been saying he is all about the team and yadda yadda but then when it is clear he is shot as a goalie defend him on his quest to inflate his stats even further. I said a couple times last year if Brodeur would have gotten 700 wins last year he would quit, but no he must continue on his little ego trip to get to 700. It is all about Marty and always was.
Edit: I also wonder if Brodeur does get lit up if skeeter will show his face around here. My money is on that he won't.
I've seen this sentiment before and I am a little perplexed by it: why is it so bad that MB wants to go for the 700 mark? I mean the dude is a competitor, right? So why is it do bad he wants to be the best and, perhaps, hit a level that may never be equaled again in our lifetimes? I'm not sure that wanting to attain a certain level for oneself if necessarily at odds with being a team player--especially when it is a stat like team wins which is, by necessity, a team stat but listed under goalies. Maybe I'm just blind but I guess I don't quite see it.
