Earlier today New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur said he would consider waiving his no trade clause.
According to a CBS Sports report, Brodeur spoke about the possibility of being traded today,
“I hope it will never happen, but if there is a situation that could be really fun for me and really good for the Devils, why not? It’s not like I’m going to play 25 more years here,” Brodeur said Tuesday.
“Im not looking for that. I want to get back into the playoffs with the team and try to do something with this team. I would say 99 percent I’d say no right now. But for a little bit of time? Nobody is going to remember it, really. It wouldn’t be that big of a deal,” he continued.
It is hard to imagine Martin Brodeur playing somewhere other than for the New Jersey Devils. He has spent more than 20 years and 1,227 games in the NHL, all with the Devils where he has been arguably the best goaltender of all time.
Brodeur is currently splitting time with Cory Schneider in net and if the Devils continue to struggle it might be in the teams best interest to consider offers for Brodeur.
By no means was Brodeur asking for a trade, he would prefer to stay in New Jersey where his home is but if the Devils fail to make the playoffs he wants everyone to know he is open to being dealt.
Where would Brodeur fit in other than in New Jersey?
Montreal Canadiens? Colorado Avalanche?

There are 68 games remaining and only one team in the Metropolitan Division—the Pittsburgh Penguins—that seems capable of running away with a playoff spot. The Devils feel confident they will be in the running for a postseason berth until the bitter end.

On Monday, the Bergen Record’s Tom Gulitti spoke with the New Jersey Devils and got updates on two concussion related injuries.

In hopes of jump starting the offense, the New Jersey Devils have recalled forward Cam Janssen from Albany.
Tuesday afternoon the Devils assigned Rusty Olesz to Albany and did not make another roster move, so no transaction was necessary to clear room for Janssen.
The Devils play two very physical teams in Philadelphia and Toronto within the next few days which likely factored...
Through 14 games, the New Jersey Devils have shown they're a team with many issues.
Their goaltending has been mediocre and we've already seen a season's worth of defensive lapses. The most problematic issue, however, has been team's offence, or lack thereof.
After being shutout by Philadelphia and Minnesota in back-to-back games over the weekend, the Devils...
It would be understandable if New Jersey Devils head coach Peter DeBoer wanted to blow off some steam after back-to-back losses this weekend, but that doesn't mean he'll blame Minnesota's Torrey Mitchell for tripping rookie Jon Merrill on Sunday:
