Question from a Rangers fan...
 
Brodeur is turning 41 in a month. It seems like the guy doesn't age. Despite great numbers this year in 19 games, eventually it will be time for him to hang up the skates. I don't know what goaltender prospects the Devils have in the pipeline (which may answer this question).

Do they have any solid potential #1 goaltender prospects in the pipeline? If not, when do you guys expect they will make a trade for a future #1? If they do, how long until they will be ready? If not do you think they make a trade at the draft for a young goalie like Bernier or some one? I was kind of expecting them to pick up Ben Bishop yesterday but they never did... (the entire reason I came here to ask this question).

Thanks.

No ''I come in peace''?

Wedgewood might be good enough when Marty retires. Maybe Lou will go after someone if need be. Then they'll pass the reigns on to Little Brodeur.

With two veteran goaltenders both with NTCs, picking up a goaltender who would demand a NHL roster spot was never in the cards.

If either Hedberg or Brodeur decide to retire this offseason, you'll see the Devils make their first move towards their next NHL goalie. If not, you'll likely be waiting another season.

In any event, the Devils have a lot of faith in Kinkaid and Wedgewood.

Is Wedgewood an NCAA goaltender or is he playing in Albany?

Played all yr in Trenton after stealing the job from the Flyers prospect goalie...with a few starts in Albany. Now with Albany the the rest of the way since Trentons season ended.

If Brodeur retires after next year none of the goalies in our system will be ready. Hiller and Miller are both UFAs after next season. Hopefully we can snag one of them.

a few posters on here have commented on his play. people they know have seen him in person, and were less than thrilled. i know for a fact he plays back up to a younger kid at shattuck's

if he;s not good enough, i don't want the devils wasting a pick just because it's marty's son.

Many people that watch hockey haven't a clue what they are actually watching so I'm not going to take anything a poster's friend's dog's third owner says seriously

I can't speak for what he did this season but his junior year he played 1 less game than the other goalie plus he's not even out of HS age yet and people can tell how good he's going to be? Das dope

i've only heard bad things about the kid. that's all i'm saying.

njdevil26 04-04-2013 11:00 PM

Jonathan Bernier is an RFA after this season. He's ready for a starting role. Quick is signed long-term. Are the Kings going to want to spend even more money on a backup? I say there's an outside possibility that the Devils get Bernier's RFA rights.

Bleedred 04-04-2013 11:20 PM

The sad part is Bernier has outplayed Quick a lot this season. Though like Moose with Marty last year, Bernier doesn't even have half the starts. I need Quick to get going cause I want him in the net for the USA in olympics next year.

Wonder if the Kings board has a ''Kings need to seriously consider sitting Quick'' thread?:laugh:

NJDevs26 04-04-2013 11:33 PM

Kinkaid's the #2 in Albany this year while Wedge was in the ECHL. He and Frazee are both RFA's this year and Frazee has outplayed Kinkaid but is two years older (he'll be 26 to Kinkaid's 24 next year). I imagine one of them will be let go and Wedge will be playing in Albany next year. Either way I'd imagine at least one of the kids will be ready after Marty's contract is up.

I'm not sure I want a kid to be taking over for Marty anyway, I'd rather have a hold-the-fort type like Moose (though obviously not him) serve as a bridge for a year or two instead of putting the 'he has to replace Marty' pressure on an untried kid.

njdevils1982 04-04-2013 11:39 PM

ill say this...from what ive seen ......

not a fan of kinkaid's style (quick to drop and on the knees shuffling)..... havent seen much at all of wedge's style .....some in WJC.....but he got benched. apparently he's not so much a dropper and has decent stickhandling.

in the end.....i want a decent future backstop. if both end up spiting duty, even better.

the job first is to STOP the puck.

Kinkaid has gotten more starts than Frazee up there I'm pretty sure. At least earlier in the year during the lockout when I was following he was. I think we need a stop gap too. All the ones I'm thinking of are too old though or will be by that time. Backstrom would be good. Nabokov would have been good, but he'll be too old by then. He's the only reason that joke of an Islanders team is in a playoff spot right now. After years of having a bunch of sieve's and trash can Rick.

Hiller I do not want. Has declined since the vertigo, and gets beat between the legs way too much. I'd almost rather have Bryz be the stop gap. Not joking either cause I liked Bryz with Phoenix. He may improve once Philly buys him out, but he may also have been destroyed for good too.

if all else fails, put lundqvist's pads in net :sarcasm:

Bleedred 04-05-2013 12:48 AM

Troll me if you want, but I wouldn't mind Lundqvist on this team after Marty is done. Though honestly it would be weird to replace Marty with him. Kinda like how someone said replacing him with Luongo would be weird when Marty went to UFA. Luongo is Marty's rival from Canada, and Lundqvist is Marty's biggest rival in the league and will wind up being Marty biggest rival for the second half of his career.

Scott04 04-05-2013 12:56 AM

For what its worth, I don't think the Devils would ever touch Brodeur's kid with a draft pick. Unless it was a 7th round pick/signing him as an undrafted free agent to give him a chance to make a career for himself, I can't see why they would bring the kid in and make him handle that immense pressure of his father's legacy with this franchise being on his shoulders just because of his last name. Unless he was evaluated to have legitimate NHL potential where any team in the league would take him (at the appropriate slot of course), I don't see why they would do that to the kid.

it's not going to happen for a multitude of reasons, but only blind ranger hate would prevent any devils fan from taking lundqvist as our next goalie in a heartbeat.

I'd take Bryzgalov as well. He's being trolled hard by that pitiful defensive corps. I think he's salvagable assuming they buy him out.

Yeah me neither. I don't really want him at all to be honest.

However I must say Bernier looked really good against the Wild tonight. (Incoming ''We didn't test him, a pee wee goalie could have shut us out too no disrespect to Bernier'' post game interview from you know who!) He didn't have to make many saves, but he was very solid. I thought he was kinda overrated at first, and seeing a few of his games including one we played him. Wouldn't trade for him though while Marty is still around.
