Brodeur Can’t Just React

from the Toronto Star,
Martin Brodeur is not accustomed to applying mind over reflex. That's one explanation for the uncharacteristic troubles this all-star netminder has experienced in a season of discomfit for the New Jersey Devils. "Every time there's a dump-in, every time I make a save and the puck squirts out, I always have to stop and think,'' Brodeur was saying yesterday, as his club prepared for a rematch with the Maple Leafs, less than a week removed from their 2-1 loss in Toronto. "To a certain extent, hockey should be a reaction game. For a goalie, it's tougher now to just react, especially when you want to play the puck.''
read on update 9:19am, In another Marty story from the Toronto Sun, Brodeur says he has a no-trade clause in his contract and has no plans to play for any other team.
Wanting to squash recent rumours that he might be moved to a stronger team by the struggling Devils in the next couple of months, Brodeur said yesterday that he is going no where. A recent report out of nearby New York suggested the Detroit Red Wings might be willing to ship flashy forward Henrik Zetterberg and goalie Manny Legace to Jersey in exchange for Brodeur, the two-time Vezina Trophy winner who has backstopped the Devils to three Stanley Cup championships.
