Not to mention Brodeur has gone through multiple coaches with multiple systems and multiple players in front of him and always posted great numbers. All the while wearing street hockey sized pads.
It blows my mind that people still attribute the mythical "Devils system" to what makes Brodeur great despite the fact that it's been dead since at least the lockout.
HAHAHHAHA.....whatever dude. You obviously haven't watched too many Devils games. His defence almost always keeps the shots from out around the perimeter which makes for easy saves for Brodeur. Anybody can make routine saves when the shots come from the blueline.
And if Brodeur is the #1 goalie in the NHL, then why has he flopped so bad in the playoffs the last 3 years?? Truth is, he isn't the goalie he used to be....partially because he is getting older and partially because he doesn't have as good of defence in front of him anymore.
Nabokov deserved to win the Vezina this year....NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. He got robbed. Nabokov had better numbers than Brodeur in a number of statistics....but yet, somehow Brodeur won the award.
