Says he wants to test the free agent market this summer and wants to play next season. Thoughts?

As long as the price is right, I can't see a downside to having Broduer in the bluenote. He'd be an insurance policy if Elliott's game goes to hell, it'd be an invaluable player to have while Jake Allen develops into a future starting goaltender... I don't see any reason to pass on him unless his salary requirements are unacceptable.

Keep 3 goalies on the active roster? I'm not a fan of that.

Martin, dude, retire. You have absolutely nothing to prove, you've done everything and you'll be remembered with the best, and hell, you've done it all as a Devil and only a Devil. Leave on top.

Pass. We have 2 goalies on the NHL roster, Binnington is ready to take over for the Wolves and we kind of need the money if we want to get Stastny and Spezza.

Yeah, Marty doesn't fit in here. It'd be great to have an all timer in the Note, but his best days are far behind him. I could see signing him if we didn't have Allen ready to inherit the backup/1B role, but since he is, there's no room for Marty.

Also, the fact that Marty will play for anyone other than the Devils is a shame.

He would be a better backup for the Hawks over Raanta - but at Brodeur's age I feel he is just another Khabibulin at this point.

I could see him going to Florida. Then it won't be much further for him to go when he checks into the old age community after next season's over.

I lost respect for Brodeur when I read the story about him and his sister-in-law - sick.

How much longer before he says screw it and retires? It really looks like no one is biting on even a backup role for him. Calgary should have taken a shot if they didn't blow their load on Hiller. Brodeur's veteran experience would have helped Berra develop more and I don't think Berra is really all that bad. He just has a shit team in front of him. On the other hand, I assume Brodeur intends to go to a team that's set to win now given that he'll probably make this his last season. So how many legit contenders actually need an over the hill back up goalie?

No... the guy wants to be playing half the games. Not happening. The only teams I could see picking him up is the awesomely managed coyotes, oilers, or maple leafs. Maybe the islanders would pick him up, 9 year front loaded contract :okman: .

Some guys just don't know when to hang 'em up. I suppose if I was in the same situation it would be difficult to let go as well, but I think it's time for Brodeur.

He's one of the greatest of all time, but this is a Brett Favre-like misstep at the end of his career. He should have hung them up as soon as the Devils lost Game 6 to LA in 2012.
