Brodeur Contemplating Move to Europe

Quote:
During the last delay to the season, the Montreal native did not join other members of the NHLPA that signed contracts to play hockey in Europe, but if games start being cancelled this time around he's considering a move overseas.

"I'm going to wait it out until October, when they're going to start slashing games, and try to have a sense of where it's going," Brodeur told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on ESPN.com. "I know I'm closing doors in Europe now because I'm going to wait a little bit, but I'd like to go somewhere to play by November if I can get an opportunity somewhere. Right now, I have no intention of going because while there's still lines of communication [between the NHL and NHLPA], it's still a positive thing."

Why do I have a feeling he and Crosby will go to the same destination together?

He's already said this to Gulitti...

Not the Crosby part, but going overseas.

How do you figure that at all?

I mean he used Crosby's agent for FA this year and I'm sure knows him but I don't know why he'd have to play with him per se. They weren't bff's growing up like other people that need to play together.

Pat Brisson represents a bunch of players, so I wouldn't expect Brodeur/Crosby to be connected in any way. We'll see, maybe I'm still too optimistic but I'd hope negotiations will spring up again by October.

I'm actually happy Marty will be going to Europe if need be. He usually is a rusty early in the season sometimes and I'd rather him work it off in Europe than struggle to get in a groove with a shortened season over here. As long as he stays healthy, and is ready to go for us when the seasons starts.

However though I'd be more happy if we didn't miss any time, and the season started on time or at least as soon as possible.

Crosby would be better off not playing overseas. He can't afford getting a concussion over there.

I don't see a 40 year old legend with kids moving to Europe to play.

Isn't this his son's draft year? Could be the last chance he can spend some serious time with him.

I don't think he's gonna pack up, and move there. Just stay there until the lockout ends. If it does.

Last thing I want is Marty to go overseas. I doubt it'll happen but still. Just get a ****ing deal done and play some hockey!

Gotta pay that alimony!
I wouldn't mind it at all, as someone else mentioned he is always rusty to start the season. Just don't get hurt.

He should wait until SEL opens up for NHL players, go to Växjö Lakers and beat the Queen who will be in Frölunda

He should sign with Brynäs! Rafalski should put in a good word.

Would be very strange to see Marty in another team's sweater, even if it's one that's not in the NHL.

Anthony is at Shattuck so he's not spending much time with him anyway
