“Pete has done an outstanding job,” Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said to Dave Hutchinson of The Star Ledger. “He knows what he wants. He’s comfortable and confident in his own skin and is open to suggestions. It’s his honesty and forthrightness that I like. He’s very communicative with his players.”
“All the guys want to play for Pete,” Parise said. “The mode and atmosphere around the locker room is great. He has done an awesome job.”
“You have to get guys to buy into your system and I think Pete has done that with his demeanor,” veteran goalie Martin Brodeur said. “He does a good job getting everybody involved, it’s not just a one-man show. Also, he understands the ups and downs of a season and is good about taking care of guys by giving them days off.”
Little has been said about a status update surrounding Devils goalie Martin Brodeur. He has already met with the team doctor, and Lou Lamoriello said that Brodeur was “status-quo.” Not exactly the most uplifting words to hear. Brodeur has already been ruled out of Fridays game against the Sharks. Once again the Devils turn to Johan Hedberg to rally the troops in search of another win. The Devils will have Keith Kinkaid on the bench as a backup.
Martin Brodeur will be out the next 7-10 days with an injured shoulder. He will not require surgery.
