Kevin Weekes, an analyst for CBC Sports and NHL Network, backed up Martin Brodeur with the New Jersey Devils from 2007-09. He also played 11 years in the NHL, so he knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to the changing times of goalies in the League — both in equipment and rules. Weekes appeared on Marek Vs. Wyshynski Radio on Tuesday, and offered a blunt assessment of Brodeur's struggles late in his career; citing the legendary netminder's inability to "adapt or die" in the NHL as a factor: Weekes also talked about the butterfly style in the NHL, the changes in goalie training and — as part of a larger discussion on the podcast — getting young black athletes interested in hockey in the U.S. Download the show on iTunes in the U.S. and in Canada.
