It's no less impressive because it was with the Devils. Brodeur has been NJ's MVP for over a decade.
It's no coincidence that NJ went from a mediocre franchise to 2nd in the league in his rookie year, then won the Cup the following season.
Over the last 11 years, a span in which the Devils have either been a favourite or at least a contender, the only player that has been with the club the entire time is Brodeur. The core has changed three times, and the defense is no longer
strong. Yet Brodeur's met his career 'regular' amount of wins (roughly 40).
Gotta give credit where it's due.
