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. Jul 18 - 3:48 PM

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.

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.

Martin Brodeur said the 2014-15 campaign is "probably going to be my last year."

He's getting ready to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent in a couple of weeks, so his last season could very well come in a different NHL uniform. "This organization means everything to me," he said. "I don't feel pushed out. I feel appreciated in all ways. ... But, like any competitor, you want to play. That's why I want to see if there's a place that I can play a lot more. If not, it's going to be a team that is going to have a really good chance to win if I'm not going to play as much." Brodeur added that he wants the Devils to sign a long-term deal with Cory Schneider because he is "the goalie of the future in New Jersey."

Martin Brodeur says he is going to test the free agent market on July 1st and will most likely part ways with the New Jersey Devils, the team that drafted him 20th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft.

24 years, four Vezina Trophies and three Stanley Cups after joining the Devils organization, the NHL's all-time winningest goaltender has decided he's ready to leave New Jersey. Brodeur did not completely rule out a return to the Devils, but says he does not want to "mess up the cards" for the Devils, who acquired Cory Schneider as their number one goaltender last year. "I've come to the conclusion that I'm definitely going to be available July 1,'' Brodeur told ESPN.com on Friday. "I want to play one more season and I want to see what's out there." Brodeur says he wants to join a contending team if he takes a backup role, but is open to joining any team if a starting job is available.

Devils coach Pete DeBoer would love to have Martin Brodeur back on the team next year.

"I haven't got any updates on that. I can tell you, if he wants to come back I would welcome him with open arms," said DeBoer. "You can never have enough great goaltending." Having Brodeur return might not be the best scenario because it could cause a potential conflict with Cory Schneider, who is expecting being New Jersey's starter in 2014-15, but DeBoer thought "they both handled it professionally" despite some rough patches. Brodeur is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in July, but he is open to re-signing with the Devils.
May 30 - 7:21 AM

Martin Brodeur reiterated that he's leaning towards playing in 2014-15.

Brodeur is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's willing to test the open market, but he's also open to re-signing with the Devils.
Apr 15 - 2:54 PM

With the possibility of retirement or relocation from the New Jersey Devils in mind, Martin Brodeur earned an emotional win as his team beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Sunday.

Brodeur, 41, finishes the 2013-14 season with a 19-14-6 record, .901 save percentage and 2.51 GAA. Now with 688 career wins, Brodeur could very well hit the 700-win mark if he comes back next season, even as a potential backup.
Apr 13 - 6:16 PM

Martin Brodeur will play between the pipes on Sunday.

This is just confirmation of what was already suspected. Brodeur would like to return for the 2013-14 campaign, although it remains to be seen what the market for him will be like. It's also unclear if he will want to play for the Devils knowing that he will be Cory Schneider's understudy. So this might be Brodeur's last game in a Devils' uniform, but that's far from a sure thing.
