This is just all kinds of ignorant...Brodeur carried that club for much of the playoffs. He's the ideal mentor for a young goalie looking to regain his mojo. You're way off with this...

Do you follow the three of them on Twitter? LeBrun doesn't break anywhere near as much. Dreger breaks the most but he also speculates the most. McKenzie doesn't break as much but never guesses at things, only concrete stuff.

lmao. the guy is 40 years old. and played like a 40 year old most of the season. The leafs need an established NHL goaltender. not one thats at the end of his career. we already made this mistake with Giguere, I highly doubt burke makes it again.

Age matters...got it...someone tell Jagr, Selanne...

Brodeur can compete at a high level. Reimer did tremendously well under Giguere. He was a great mentor. Brodeur is even better.

Terrible.

Name more 40 year old players. There is a reason they are the exception and not the rule. Look at Roloson who was awful. O'Donnel and Knuble? What about other old guys like Rolston or Holmstrom (who every Red Wing fan wants out)? Even Lidstrom stuggled this year by his standards.

Broduer isn't going to be a part of our team for more than a year or two. This will delay any development with Reimer whatsoever. Broduer is certainly not the answer for a rebuilding/retooling team.

Broduer won't sign to be a backup goalie on a below average team.

Brodeur would be the perfect goalie for this team on a short term deal. I can't truthfully say we'll be out of the lottery with a Reimer/Scrivens tandem. Are fans ok with another year out of the playoffs?

I see no reason for Brodeur to go to Pittsburgh, but I'm sure Pitts will be hard after Parise.

If Marty signs with the Leafs, this place would crash for a couple of days.

Look at this stats the past couple seasons. We don't nearly have a good a defensive team as NJ is/was to sustain those numbers.

This isn't one of the best tender of all time anymore in his prime. He isn't in his prime.

We aren't a competing team. Why sign Broduer so he can play 50 games for us for 1-2 seasons (he won't come to Toronto anyways unless we throw him a ton of money) and us getting no where? We need to find a permanent solution for 6 years. Is it Reimer/Scrivens? Maybe not. But it certainly isn't Broduer.

Brodeur is a stopgap. Signing him would give us the thing we need the most - time.

That makes no sense. Time? Time for what? It's not like Reimer needs more AHL seasoning. You can't expect Scrivens to need more AHL seasoning for more than a couple years.

What time is this? What are we waiting for? Are we waiting for 2 years when we can do something like actually play Reimer? It's not like we have a bonafide goaltender prospect like Campbell, Markstrom, Bernier (circa couple years ago), Subban, or Lehner in the minors who needs an AHL season or two.

In your opinion, what would we be waiting 2 years for?

Also, feel free to put aside on why Broduer would want to come here unless we threw up an unhealthy amount of money. Cause I don't see that happening.

I actually think having Brodeur is a good idea. If Reimer has another sub par season, leaf fans will shake their heads.

Doesn't make any sense whatsoever. He will be a Devil, or he won't play again.
That is what a lot of people said about Mats Sundin at the end of his career, before he play 1/2 season in Vancouver before retiring.

Marty Brodeur would be a good fit for Leafs but bad fit for Marty as he would likely want to go to a Cup contender in his last days.

I'd love to have brodeur. You can't get more experience, he's a great team guy, you know he'd only want one year on a decent cap hit, and he can still steal a game every now and then. Of course, the one drawback is I don't know how well him and allaire would get along, but imo burke should be all over this....brodeur is the perfect stop-gap at this point.

He can get us in the playoff and finally give our guys a chance to experience playoff hockey. I do not care what Burke thinks, you need to get your ass kicked in the playoffs before you can win.

Sundin's a pretty poor comparison. Toronto didn't want him back and he had never won a cup, so there was plenty of motivation for him to continue playing with another team. We know Marty's won a few cups and it sounds like the Devils want him back.

Marty Brodeur was born in Montreal, PQ

You would think that growing up in Quebec, playing in the Q that his likely boyhood favourite team was therefore Montreal, which then would make Toronto an arch rival to him. I can't imagine very many kids growing up in Montreal would have Toronto as their favourite teams personally.

Montreal has Carey Price so they don't need Marty, but I'd bet Marty would love a chance to win a Cup in his home town none the less.

Personally teams like Chicago, SJ make sense on a short term basis.. Even TB where fellow french Canadians Marty St. Louis and Vinny Lecav play and TB went to Conference finals in 2010-11. He could push a explosive team like TB over the top perhaps.
