Martin Brodeur Ready To Hit The UFA Market

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

"I've come to the conclusion that I'm definitely going to be available July 1,'' Brodeur told ESPN.com Friday. "I want to play one more season and I want to see what's out there."

Brodeur, who turned 42 last month, said he hasn't completely shut the door on returning to the Devils but feels like it's most likely he's going to be elsewhere next season.

"I've had a lot of good conversations with the Devils, but I'm not inclined at going back at this point," said Brodeur, whose contract expires June 30. "I just feel that with Schneids (goalie Corey Schneider) the organization has to move on. Me being around might be tough a little bit for them. I don't completely put it out of the question (returning to New Jersey) but I don't want to mess up the cards for the Devils.

"At the end of the day, it doesn't matter where I go next, I'm always going to be a Devil. I'm always going to come back to the organization. But I want to play one more year. So I'll see what's out there."

Might be a good fit for the Wings as the Monster will probably want a 2 year deal at least. Mrazek would be stunted if left in GR for 2 years, but leaving him in the AHL for another year with multiple call ups (for either Howard or Brodeur) might not be all bad for him.

Plus continuing the trend (furthering the image of Detroit being a destination for Hall of Famers) would not be the worst thing that could happen to the club.
