It's amazing how Marty says a bunch of good things in the article like this       And yet the only thing that gets attention around here is the blurb that Lou is probably going to wait to see wh

Just heard this on the NHL Network coverage.

Didn't see anything official yet but that was the word they got and reported.

"Its official the Brodeur era is over in NJ"

 

TG saying its a one year, two-way contract....maybe this means backup duties can be rotated between him and Kinkaid ?

Well, there goes my list...2-way deal for Clemmer though - we may see some Kinkaid yet.

 

Yikes...he's been pretty bad the last couple of years.  .874 and .896 save%s.  Looks like Kinkaid is going to get a shot to win the backup job.

Precisely why I had ruled him out. I figured Lou was going to go for a real backup - Chad Johnson/Darcy Kuemper type.

Why in the world would they sign someone with a worse GAA and save percentage than Brodeur??

 

They're hoping Kinkaid wins the job.  Clemmer (I hope) was signed to be the #3 guy, a veteran with NHL experience who can step in if Kinkaid gets hurt or doesn't get it done.  I just can't believe he's the clear #2.   

 

Cory's definitely not threatened now...he's going to get 65+ games for sure with who he's got behind him.  But it's REALLY scary to think what could happen if he ever got hurt.  A tandem of Clemmer and Kinkaid?  Yikes, yikes, and yikes.

The one thing that didn't happen today that I was hoping for is a Schneider extension. Now that he knows Marty isn't coming back, hopefully that will get done soon.
