His marriage status has nothing to do with comments about an insane lockout.
And what is he saying that we have not?

""The league is almost treating us like kids. It's like they're saying, 'We made an offer, now go and think about it,' " the three-time Stanley Cup winner told The Post"

Isn' that what was talked about last week when we talked about Bettman's "reflection" comment?

Some pretty silly stuff here by Marty though.

The future Hall-of-Famer also feels the professional leagues that have salary caps tend to shift the focus from the players to the coaches.

"Having those restrictions in football and basketball, the coaches there mean more than the players do, and I don't think the fans go to watch coaches," Brodeur said.


---Huh? The NHL is far more coach-driven than either of those sports. And don't think fans go to those sports to watch coaches, Marty? Well I've got news for you, buddy boy, I don't think fans go to watch your sport period. There are about 6 markets in the US the actually care that you're not playing, and most of those are too interested in the NFL and the World Series to really care that much. As much as I detest what the owners are doing, I can't stand the general cluelessness of the players. Their best argument as to why other leagues (ones that actually generate revenue) can have a salary cap and the NHL can't is that in those leagues, it's all about the coaches while the NHL is about the players? Good lord.

All due respect, but hockey is more coach-driven than football? There is no sport in the world that places more importance on the coach than American Football! In fact, the head coach has so much responsibility, he needs an entire staff of coaches to run the team. Coaches draw up every play, every offensive player has a route to run, every d-man has a zone or a man to cover -- the game is run from the sidelines.

In hockey, the coach chooses who's on the ice at any given time, and draws up general schemes for the team to play by. Occasionally there are set plays off of faceoffs. The players have to be well-versed in the team system, but the nature of the sport, which is fluid and chaotic, gives them a lot of responsibility to interpret what is going on on their own.

I don't know much about basketball, but they say soccer is the professional sport in which the coach has the least influence. All he can really do is dictate the starting line-up, 3 subs (used to be 2), the positions played on the pitch (which can be fluid, like in hockey), and set-plays from corners and free kicks (which can only be used once). He can have a certain influence on how the game is played, but this is acheieved the week before during training.

Football is 75% about the coaches. It is a game of individual match-ups and the winner of the game is decided by which coach can exploit the advantages and protect in spots of disadvantage.
