Evening Line- Grant Fuhr On Martin Brodeur

“He can still play; his skills haven’t eroded that much. When you’re healthy, it’s harder because you know you can still play. But now you’ve got to get a team to buy into that. And when you can’t find somebody, it’s a blow to your ego.

“Guys that get to 40 and are healthy and can still play at a high level … I know guys in different sports that have gone through that. They still think they can play, but suddenly there’s not offers. It’s a really hard thing to accept. I got lucky — my body was falling apart.”

-Grant Fuhr on Martin Brodeur.  More on this topic from Luke Fox of Sportsnet.
