As improbable as it sounds, Martin Brodeur could be entering the final two weeks of his Devils career.
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.
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.
This team is seeking a viable left winger to play with center Travis Zajac and the ageless Jaromir Jagr. Coach Pete DeBoer decided veteran Dainius Zubrus wasn’t the optimal fit there.
Randy Miller of NJ.com makes a case for the New Jersey Devils to acquire veteran winger Daniel Briere from the Montreal Canadiens, saying that Briere may not be happy with his playing situation in Montreal, could be a top-line centre with the Devils and would be closer to his sons who live in Haddonfield, New Jersey.
