Martin Brodeur's agent says the free-agent goaltender is hoping to sign with a team rather than retire partly because he wants to reach the 700-win plateau.
"He's 12 wins away from 700 and those are things he wants to accomplish," Pat Brisson was quoted as saying. "He'd like to play on a team that will have a chance to go far as well. Right now I don't have the perfect script. However, I'm OK with it because, based on experience, all teams are going for the Stanley Cup when camp opens and three weeks later they realize that there's missing pieces here and there." Brodeur, who left the New Jersey Devils after they decided on Cory Schneider as their No. 1 goaltender, previously said he wanted to be the starter somewhere or play for a Stanley Cup contender. Last week Brodeur said he would listen if the Montreal Canadiens wanted him to back up Carey Price. Brodeur, who turned 42 on May 6, has said he expected the 2014-15 season would be his last. Last season he was 19-14-6 with a 2.51 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in 39 games. His 688 regular-season victories and 124 shutouts are NHL records. Sep 11 - 8:22 AM

Martin Brodeur is still waiting for an NHL offer he likes to come around, but it's also possible that he will announce his retirement.

"Got nothing new to report," Brodeur texted on Monday. "Everything is well with me. Just getting ready in case a good opportunity comes along." He has a standing offer from the Devils to take a front-office job if he calls it a career. "I think he's just going to wait and see what transpires at different training camps and then he'll make a decision whether he wants to go somewhere or whether he wants to retire," said New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello. "That's my opinion, and I talk to Marty all the time."

Martin Brodeur indicated he would be happy being Carey Price's backup in Montreal if the Habs made him an offer.

Of course he would. But it is unlikely to happen as Peter Budaj is still under contract for one more season and the Canadiens love the way Dustin Tokarski has developed. Brodeur told the QMI Agency this week. "If the Canadiens made me an offer, it goes without saying that I would listen to what they have to offer me. This is Carey Price’s team. I would definitely still want to be the No. 1 goalie, but it wouldn’t bother me to play in only 20 to 25 games during the season if I know I’ll have fun playing within a winning team." Don't count on the Habs signing the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer.

Martin Brodeur wants to play for a team that "has a real chance to win the Stanley Cup."

He told the Montreal Journal that he's been contacted by some teams, but he hasn't deemed them "interesting" enough to join. Brodeur is OK with being a backup, but most top contenders already have their goaltending situations settled going into training camp. Brodeur will probably have to lower his expectations or wait for a possible injury to get a shot with another team.

New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello expects Martin Brodeur to wait until the start of training camps to make a final decision on his playing career.

Lamoriello thinks that Brodeur wants to get a final overview of the market before deciding where he can play or if he'll retire. Veteran goalies Tomas Vokoun, Tim Thomas and Ilya Bryzgalov are also looking for work and there's no guarantee that Brodeur will be able to find a job with a contender. Lamoriello said that Brodeur has a job waiting for him with the Devils when he does decide to stop playing.

Although Martin Brodeur hasn't signed yet, it's still very unlikely that he would return to New Jersey as a player.

New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said that the team and Brodeur have come to an understanding that they're both moving on. "It's a progression thing – that is Marty knowing what it is to be a No. 1 goaltender and to have that feeling and that's exactly what he feels Cory needs," Lamoriello said. "We feel the same way. We went through one year a different way. So, I think it's time to go forward, but never negate what Marty has brought nor was the door ever shut. It was a mutual understanding of what's best for both parties and Marty will always be a Devil." Brodeur will probably rejoin the Devils' organization in a front office capacity after he hangs up his skates.

Martin Brodeur is "still looking for the right fit" as the free agent market dies down.

Brodeur is willing to play for a non-contender, but he'd like to play "a lot" in that case. Ultimately, it wouldn't be shocking if he doesn't end up with a contract going into the preseason. As great as his career has been, he's not the same goaltender he once was. Which is to be expected at the age of 42, but it's still the reason why he hasn't gotten an offer to his liking yet. Brodeur might end up signing during the season though if a team needs a replacement after one of their goaltenders suffers a major injury.

Although Martin Brodeur is no longer under contract with New Jersey, it's clear that he still has a strong relationship with the Devils.

Evidence on that could be seen on Monday as his three sons, Anthony, Jeremy, and William all reported for the Devils' development camp. Anthony was drafted by the Devils in 2013, so his presence was expected, but Jeremy and William are Anthony's younger, twin brothers and can't be drafted until 2015. Devils GM Lou Lamoriello contacted Martin Brodeur to see if they would be interested in attending New Jersey's development camp. Lamoriello thinks Brodeur will eventually join the Devils' organization on the management side once he decides to hang up his skates.

Free agent goaltender Martin Brodeur isn't ruling out the idea of signing a new contract during next season's regular schedule.

"On or around July 1, we explored a few possibilities for Marty that made somewhat sense. That didn’t come to fruition," Brodeur's agent, Pat Brisson, was quoted as saying in the Bergen Record. "Marty has a lot to offer, but it will be the right fit and this may come later this summer or even early in the season. He is in no rush until the right fit appears. In the meantime he is getting ready the same way he has the past 20 seasons." Brodeur, 42, is a sure-fire nominee for the Hall of Fame. Many feel he is the greatest goalie in NHL history. Last season, with the Devils, he had 19 wins in 39 games and a GAA of 2.51.

As he hunts for a new employer on the free-agent market, Martin Brodeur "might be the victim of his own formidable shadow, which he would cast on a team’s No. 1 goaltender, even as the most willing and conscientious of backups."

That's the opinion of New York Post hockey columnist Larry Brooks, who, like most hockey followers, are waiting to see where the future Hall of Fame goalie winds up as a free agent, if anywhere. Brooks suggests two destinations: Columbus, where Sergei Bobrovsky has established himself as the starter of a growing team. "And though the dynamics in Pittsburgh are difficult to read, it is impossible to believe the Penguins wouldn’t be better served with Brodeur rather than Thomas Greiss as the alternative to Marc-Andre Fleury." Brooks writes.

Martin Brodeur isn't in a rush to find a team to sign with.

"We are looking at different scenarios, but there's no timetable on anything," said Brodeur's agent, Pat Brisson, in an email. He's taking his time while searching for the best fit.

Martin Brodeur’s priority is to win another Stanley Cup, though his role also will be important to him in where he decides to play next year, according to TVA’s Louis Jean.

Brodeur is set to be an unrestricted free agent. Jean reports that Brodeur would be OK with a one-year deal and says that the Blackhawks, Bruins, Penguins and Maple Leafs have expressed interest. "If I get a job as a No. 1, I think I’m able to handle the workload of 50 to 60 games," Brodeur told Sportsnet. "If I don’t, and I get a backup job on a team I feel has a chance to win the Stanley Cup, anything between 20 to 30 games I’d be comfortable with in the right situation." It's unlikely the 42-year-old is brought in to start anywhere at this stage of his career.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are believed to have some interest in Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur plans to test the free agent waters. Toronto has had interest in Brodeur in the past and if they lured him over, he would primarily serve as a mentor for Jonathan Bernier and the team's backup goaltender.

Martin Brodeur excited about the prospect of playing for a new team.

Brodeur plans to test the unrestricted free agent market in the hopes of playing for one more season before retiring. "It's a little bit of the unknown," Brodeur said. "I know it's only for one season, but I'm excited to see the interest. That's the big thing for me – to see what kind of team or what kind of situation I can get myself into. That's the excitement part. For me, to go outside the bubble, that's something I never did. So, it will be interesting." He'll probably find a team that's willing to give him a chance to compete for the starting job, but we doubt he'll enter the 2014-15 campaign as a team's clear number one.
Jun 25 - 11:08 AM

Martin Brodeur says he isn't likely to sign with his hometown Montreal Canadiens when he becomes a free agent this summer.

"Montreal would be tough," the future Hall of Famer says. "For me, I'm so used to being in the States and playing in the type of markets I'm used to playing in. But, again, I don't know. That's something that when we come to that bridge, we'll go over it. But it's something that, put it this way, they're not too much on my radar." Carey Price is the Canadiens' No. 1 goaltender, with Peter Budaj and Dustin Tokarski as potential backups.
