OT - Marty Brodeur and Team Canada
 
It must be disappointing to be eliminated this way, but do you think he'd want to go.... its the one championship he's never been able to win.... He's got olympic gold, cup rings, world cup.... but he's missing the WC gold... will he go for it??

Iwishihadacup 04-18-2008 09:06 PM

nah... he will go cut his wrists for losing


:sarcasm:

CareyPrice x 31 04-18-2008 09:09 PM

Having it in Canada might encourage him to go.

Mooch 04-18-2008 09:12 PM

I think he will. I would, especially after loosing to the Rangers the way they did.

Habsfan 32 04-18-2008 09:14 PM

I hope he goes.

33Roy33 04-18-2008 09:15 PM

I would like to see him there. Although he did seem tired and run down in the playoffs as he did not play like himself.

I think hes getting old, I didnt watch any of the games but normally you hear about him winning it for his team. He let in 3+ goals in 4 out of 5 games

Habs10Habs 04-18-2008 09:36 PM

I think info is going to come out that he was hurt during the series. So I'd be very surprised if he goes.

Avim86 04-18-2008 09:36 PM

NJ plays the trap their team is no longer the trap expert it ust to be , new coach , different players , less firepower , what could you really expect from NJ. They don't play real hockey and it's about time someone knocked their lights out.

Bad Natey 04-18-2008 09:36 PM

I'd rather have Leclaire there.

Erythro73 04-18-2008 09:39 PM

Brodeur is currently the best goaler in the world. Yah, he wasn't so great in the series against the Rangers, but what he had as a defense? No Stevens, no Daneyko and no Niedermayer. Nobody to defend him.

So yeah, I certainly hope he goes with Team Canada.

Mathieu21 04-18-2008 09:41 PM

I hope he does go there. I'm going to see a game in a week at the colisée.

CrAzYNiNe 04-18-2008 10:02 PM

no way he goes

he already played 80 games this year, more then almost any goalie including any that get to the cup finals

Habs10Habs 04-18-2008 10:03 PM

Who are the goalies so far, I haven't been keeping up? I'm guessing that Cam Ward is one of them.

Iwishihadacup 04-18-2008 10:04 PM

i would prefer LeClaire has afirst goalie for team Canada

It would be the worst insult to even rob him of his chance to shine (even more after not being invited to the all star match)

Cam and Pascal Leclaire

if brodeur calls yzerman/hitchcock and says I want to play, he's not a guy you say no too...

True, it's not that I don't want him to play. But having two good young goalies represent us doesn't hurt either for the future.

Monctonscout 04-18-2008 10:17 PM

He did not look very good in this series...

No hes not imo, by quite a big stretch. Hes been slowing down for a couple of years now.

Its fair to say this was not his best season.

It took him forever to get going and down the stretch he was not good at all

Granted, hes a legend, he deserves it, but the olympics wont be the same story, I sure hope.

I disagree... Brodeur is still the top goalie in the league.... Top 3 at worst.

With the players New Jersey has lost recently especially on D and to still take them to the point that they always are challenging for the conference, division every year is incredible.

Gomez, Rafalski last year
Niedermayer, Stevens, etc....

wedge 04-18-2008 10:49 PM

I hope so...
