Martin Brodeur could be facing the final two weeks of his Devils career

As improbable as it sounds, Martin Brodeur could be entering the final two weeks of his Devils career.

BYE-BYE MARTY


You’ll probably be hearing and reading a lot about Martin Brodeur over the next two weeks because his history-making two decades with the Devils could be coming to an end. Brodeur was platooning in goal for most of the season with Cory Schneider, but now is a 41-year-old backup who sat six games in a row and eight of nine before the break.

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.

Brodeur would consider waving no-trade if Devils aren’t contenders

Jaromir Jagr does not have a no-trade clause but Martin Brodeur, who does, told The Star-Ledger he would consider going to a contender.

“I hope it will never happen , but if there is a situation that could be really fun for me and really good for the Devils, why not? It’s not like I’m going to play 25 more years here,” Brodeur said Tuesday.

RUMOURS DU JOUR:

RUMOURS DU JOUR: New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello sent out an email last week offering up an unnamed “veteran defenceman” around. D Marek Zidlicky, 36, is the oldest player on the club’s blueline while D Anton Volchenkov, D Peter Harrold and Andy Greene all qualify in the “veteran” category. It is doubtful the Devils will be able to move anybody.
