Carey Price wasn't going to leave Montreal once the Canadiens filed for arbitration last month. Despite expressing a desire to test the free agent waters, it was hard to imagine Martin Brodeur playing anywhere else but New Jersey. On Monday, both goalies agreed to terms to stay with the only NHL clubs they've ever played for. But keeping these keepers was costly, and comes with some significant risk. Price signed a six-year deal for $39 million, more than doubling his previous cap hit of $2.75 million to $6.5 million. Only two goalies, Nashville's Pekka Rinne at $7 million and the...

Martin Brodeur re-signs with New Jersey Devils for two more seasons

Breathe easy, Devils and hockey fans. All is right with the world this Monday morning, as we awoke to the news that Martin Brodeur will remain a New Jersey Devil.
