Martin Brodeur‘s future in New Jersey has become a hot topic of late and isn’t likely to cool off.
Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports Brodeur met with Devils GM Lou Lamoriello to discuss his future with the team. Brodeur has mentioned this season how it’s been difficult being relegated to backup duty behind Cory Schneider and would be OK with going to a contender if it’s best for the Devils.
The awkward part of that thinking, however, is that Brodeur isn’t the same goalie he’s been in the past and his numbers bear that out. His save percentage (.899) and goals-against average (2.52) are the worst they’ve been in his 20-year career.
Schneider has been the better goalie this season and Brodeur’s career is nearly at an end. If he needs to go elsewhere to finish his career, it would be very strange seeing him not in a Devils uniform.
