Lots of interesting stuff.  The Richards situation thickens.  It is just one part so I am putting the entire article here. :)

Hopefully his next will be so long it ruins the rest of his career and the league is free of him.  I really have no respect for him and his arrogance.

In Topic: Brodeur retires, joins STL front office

One of the greats, and we were all lucky to see him in New Jersey.  The 3 years Brodeur won a Stanley Cup, his stats were:  67 games, 48 wins, 19 losses, 1.64 GAA, .930 SV%.  And yet some of his great playoff performances have come recently - his 44 save shutout of the Carolina Hurricanes in 2009 and a 25 save performance in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012 are highlights that don't come with Stanley Cups attached but that doesn't make them any less great.  And of course that that 2012 performance came 18 years after his first great playoff performance - what a career.

 

They made a rule to try to stop how good he was with the puck, but that didn't slow him down - 2 of his best years were after that rule was instituted.  He played his own style that no one else will play, and no one else will wear #30 for this franchise again.

So true. He was in goal for some really memorable games.  One of my favorites was 5/8/2000 where the NJD defeated/eliminated Toronto and the shots on goal by period was 3-2-1 total 6.  He spent almost the entire game as a spectator.
