What Will Brodeur Do?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

It is becoming increasingly clear Martin Brodeur will finish his NHL career someplace other than New Jersey if he wishes to play next season, but not so clear at all where the all-time goaltender will finish this season.

Brodeur is expected to ponder his options during the winter recess, to consider whether requesting a trade would be mutually beneficial for him and the Devils, who have their noses pressed against the outside of the playoff window and are in severe danger of missing the tournament for the third time in the past four seasons.

After 20 seasons, the Devils’ net belongs to someone else. No one ever had a longer run as a club’s No. 1 than Brodeur — not Frank Brimsek, not Turk Broda, not Jacques Plante, not Glenn Hall, not Tony Esposito, not Dominik Hasek, not Patrick Roy, and not even close.

I would think the return on trading him may not be that great considering he could truly only turn out to be a rental by possibly retiring at the end of the season. 

I think it’s one thing to sign a rental player with hopes of resigning him in the offseason, but another thing to sign an aged goaltender who may decide to call it quits at the end of the season.
