In Topic: Lots to mull for Devils’ legend Brodeur - Brooks NY Post

I agree the trade market, in terms of the logic of reasonable fit, is pretty dry on Martin Brodeur 2014. 


However - and forgive me if it's been mentioned somewhere in this lengthy thread - the only non logical trade option that might exist would be the Montreal Canadiens.  You have to know that they'd love to see Marty in a Habs jersey, if even for 1 game, and who knows, maybe Brodeur would like that too.  It'd be the only team (on a personal note) that wouldn't make me feel sick to see Marty traded to.  All that said, clearly it wouldn't be for a #1 role, and their current backup Budaj has put up very good numbers this year.  So really, it'd be a marketing/sentimental trade.  How much Montreal would value the presence of their national icon in terms of compensation... maybe they'd throw a round 3 pick our way.  Still, begs the question of whether or not it's worth doing for the Devils, unless of course Marty outright requests it, and then it's not so much about the return as it is about the spectacle of the event.


At any rate, probably unlikely, but thought I'd throw it out there as a potentiality not based in typical logic of profits.

PS - i know this topic has been debated in other threads, but I wanted it here specifically for polling purposes, to see how our collective powers of prognostication will fair. And while it might not be an epic moment in our team's season, or even in how many more Wins Brodeur achieves as a result... it will still be an epic moment for almost all Devils fans to see our career HOF netminder play on another squad. 


I know personally, that's not something I EVER thought possible.  If you read Brodeur's book, you'd know how important the "1-team" concept seemed to him, and how ferociously loyal he comes off. 


Today, he's one of the worst goalies in the game.  But it will still be sad to see his name elsewhere, when he could have instead retired before now and maintained his lifelong career in NJ.

yes. I believe the secret meeting was in fact a trade request, and Lou will use the Olympic break to work the phones and find a destination

maybe i missed something - what secret meeting?

is parenteau hurt?

Not as far as I know - he's a healthy scratch of late, which could mean his departure is imminent.
