Brodeur “open” to being traded by Devils; “If there’s a better sitiuation for me, I’ll take it”

The idea of Martin Brodeur playing for a team other than the Devils was pretty much unthinkable until he brought it up on Jan. 12 in Toronto when discussing if he would play beyond when his contract expires after this season.

Now, as Cory Schneider settles into the No. 1 goaltender job that Brodeur had held for 20 seasons, the 41-year-old future Hall of Famer sounds more and more like a man who might be ready to move on before that.

Although Brodeur says he is “not at all” looking for the Devils to trade him, if general manager Lou Lamoriello were able to find a team looking for an experienced No. 1 while also helping the team in the process by getting some assets in return, Brodeur is open to waiving the no-trade clause in his contract.

In fact, at this point, that might be what he’d prefer.

“I’m open to anything,” Brodeur told me. “I just want to play. So, like I said in Toronto, if there’s a better situation for me, I’ll take it. If it’s here or somewhere else, it doesn’t matter.”
