Belfour is in no way better than Brodeur. You can say all you want about the defensive system NJ plays, but look how Brodeur played in the Olympics and how he is playing so far in World Cup exhibition. The guy is facing 30 shots a night from the best players in the world, and he’s outstanding. Plus, he’s won 3 cups and will eventually catch Roy’s record for wins.
Also, without Brodeur, the Devils wouldn’t be this good. I have watched them numerous times in the playoffs, and they didn’t win because of the system, they won because Brodeur let them win.
