As for Deboer, if he thinks that he can continue to play aging veterans and keep waffling between a clear number one goalie and a 41 year old on the decline then he is a pretty bad coach because he must lack eyesight and common sense.

As fans we are in for a tough time if the Devils become an organization that keeps players around for what they used to be.  As for Brodeur, he needs to understand the situation with the goal-tending position.  Like every other player in professional sports history, Brodeur replaced somebody else when it became clear that the team would have a better chance at winning with him in net.  Now it's time for him to be the guy on the way out.  He's turning 42 in May and from what I've seen he has not become a worse goalie because he forgot how to play the game but because he is getting older.

 

  He will go down as the greatest goalie to ever play the game but he is no longer a top goalie -- not even in the Devil organization.  If Brodeur feels that he continue to play in the National Hockey League then he can either a. remain on the team as a backup or a. leave the organization and play for another.  I will have no hard feelings against Brodeur if he decides that he would like to play elsewhere.  He is a free man who is allowed to choose what he would like to do on a daily basis.  Would it be better if he retired as a Devil? In my opinion, yes but like I said, its up to him.

Parise wanted to play in Minnesota with his buddy Suter and no contract offered by the Devils would have been good enough to keep him here.

Articles are nothing special, really.  Could've been anyone on here writing articles like that. 
 
If Lou thinks PDB's the problem, he'll let him go.  I think he gets until the end of the season though, but if they lose the next two games and go into the Olympic break 23-23-13...guess I wouldn't be completely surprised.  Not sure what a new coach can really do though.  Devils would probably have to 10 games over NHL .500 to get in the rest of the way.


He is the coach of a team that routinely blows leads and buries young guys. Go figure.

Not exactly sure why broduer is playing this game. We can't really afford to drop any games and cory gives us the best chance to win. Makes sense.


For whatever reason the devils have decided not to go with a number one goalie in a lot of games.
