“I’m really enjoying this. Regardless of what happens in this series, I think we made a great step last year at the end of the year and through this year to have a really good team and a good coaching staff together and it’s fun. To me, it’s all about having fun coming to the rink. I know a lot of people say it’s great to retire on top, but at the end of the day, when I’m going to say it’s over, it’s over, I’m not going to come back.
“Hopefully, we won’t have to replay that tape (laughing). I want to make sure I make the right decision. Right now I’m leaning toward coming back. We’ll see.”

Always one to keep things in proper perspective, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur quickly dismissed any suggestion Friday night that New Jersey's Eastern Conference Final win over the New York Rangers somehow served as retribution for the events of 1994.
It was during the conference final that year that the Devils, with a 22-year-old Brodeur in net, choked away a 3-2 series...
With the thought of the New Jersey Devils hoisting another Stanley Cup looking like a possibility more so than ever s nice advancing to the finals, the future of goaltender Martin Brodeur resurfaces.
The Vancouver Canucks and Roberto Luongo are in communication about what to do next season as far as where he plays. If the cards fall into place, the New Jersey Devils...
It would be the storybook finish. Martin Brodeur, arguably the greatest goalie of all time, going out on top with a fourth Stanley Cup hoisted high above his head. It worked for future hall of famer Mark Recchi last year and Ray Bourque more than a decade ago. But it's still a rarity for one of the game's true greats to go out on their terms at the top of their game. So with...
Note: My Stanley Cup Final Preview and Predictions blog will be forthcoming early this evening, a few hours before the opening faceoff of Game 1.
Martin Brodeur has never cared to chime in on the debate over his rightful place in the pantheon of great goalies in NHL history. Why should he?
He's too busy piling up records and collecting Stanley Cups to concern himself with...
Maybe Martin Brodeur's old-age heroics in leading the New Jersey Devils to the Stanley Cup Finals has given Dominik Hasek a new sense of worth. The 47-year-old Czech goaltender isn't quite ready to say goodbye to the game he loves, telling Denik Sport that he is working hard to make a comback to professional hockey. Hasek has been in and out of retirement for the last 13...
Though the New Jersey Devils don't play today and haven't for the last few days, there have been some interesting news pieces floating around. Today, I'll touch on them.
- Martin Brodeur told TSN what we all expected yesterday: that he is leaning towards playing another season regardless of what happens in this series. Brodeur has shown throughout the season and playoffs...
Martin Brodeur's Devils outlasted Henrik Lundqvist's Rangers to advance to the Stanley Cup Final. We wanted to know what the caption should be for this photo of the two netminders. Here's a look at Saturday's #NESNCaption Caption Contest. Chris Caulfield: "To be the man you have to beat the Man!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Gail Penny: "Man, you had a bug on...
from Lisa Dillman of the LA Times, At this stage, the inner child comes out in nearly every hockey player and coach.
New Jersey Devils icon Martin Brodeur sounded like an excited teenager, not a seen-it-all 40-year-old goaltender Tuesday at media day for the Stanley Cup Final before their series against the Kings. You might have thought it was his first Final, not his fifth.
Perhaps the most intriguing Stanley Cup Final storyline is the goaltending. While Martin Brodeur is a grizzled veteran getting set for his 200th career playoff game on Wednesday, Jonathan Quick will have just 27 postseason contests under his belt. Clearly, Brodeur -- who also has nine All-Star Game selections and three Stanley Cups to his credit -- has the superior resume and the...

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, It’s difficult to really ascertain who begat who.
Did Lou Lamoriello make Martin Brodeur, or did Brodeur make Lamoriello? Did Brodeur become the game’s greatest goalie because he became part of Lamoriello’s New Jersey Devils, or has Lamoriello already taken up residency in the Hockey Hall of Fame because he had the best between the pipes...
Forget the statistics and hot streaks heading into the Stanley Cup Finals.
There’s very little to go off of in determining the advantages between the No. 8 seed Los Angeles Kings and No. 6 seed New Jersey Devils.
Jonathan Quick’s playoffs-leading GAA (1.54) and save percentage (.946) may be as misleading as Martin Brodeur’s experience.
And the Kings’ single-digit power...
