At least a lockout moves us closer to a new starter.
Brodeur is no longer the 70 game goaltender that'll have a save percentage above .915 or a GAA under 2.2. That's pretty obvious
But what he will, and has showed he can do, is keep us in games and win them. We don't need him to be stellar night in and night out, we just need him to get it done when he's asked. He can be a solid 50-60 games goaltender. Hedberg can certainly relieve at least 20 games, if not more, off of his shoulders.
Down the stretch run and in the playoffs, Brodeur was playing like we've seen him play in past years, more importantly, he was winning games when it counted. I'd much rather Brodeur be ****** in games 1 and 3 then in games 6 and 7. That is what I was saying.
