Brodeur Possibly Testing The Market?

Darren Dreger‏@DarrenDreger

Martin Brodeur very likely to test free agent market. Brodeur has hired Pat Brisson (CAA) to represent him. Bidders get ready!

Darren Dreger‏@DarrenDreger

Brodeur has had limited contract discussions with Devils. Could still sign before Sunday, but leaning now toward open market.


Dislike. Doesn't mean he's gone, but thought it would be done by now.

Yeah, I don't like where this thread is going to go.

He's expressed MANY times in the past he only wants to play for the Devils. Maybe he just wants an agent to do the talking this time?

Don't know if this is just Marty's way of saying to Lou 'cmon now, I'm reasonable but you've got to give me something'. If he actually walks away and plays somewhere else because of money, I'll be gobsmacked.

Pierre LeBrun‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun

As per @DarrenDreger, Brodeur has hired Brisson. ``He will be testing free agency if a deal is not in place by Sunday,'' Brisson via email


Hopefully it's nothing more than getting his ducks in a row in the (unlikely?) event that they don't agree in the next 48 hrs.

Oh good grief, not the drama we needed. I suppose Marty feels he needs the agent for other teams, not for Lou but still.

There is potential, small as it may be, for the feces to make violent contact with the oscillating air circulation device.

this is not good, although people will spin it as 'its fine, status quo'. could mean nothing, but it could mean something...theres no positive to marty's statement/agent-hiring that is positive. nothing at all

edit- nothing at all? obligatory:

Folks. Marty has NEVER hired an agent before.

This is a concerning development. All may end well, but this to me is very very juicy on both the Devils side and what Brodeur has in his mind.

No way you cannot be concerned by this.

not even worried, it's probably he's not getting offered enough as much as he likes.

Let me speculate on this a bit based on nothing but my own imagination if you will. Lou wants Brodeur to take a pay cut, Brodeur wants the same or a slight bump, and thus we are here. Now is this a bluff or will he entertain the idea of going somewhere? I just don't see many places paying for a 1A the same price we have payed Brodeur the last contract even for a year and even with the name. Maybe he's just going to send feelers out there and see what market value is and come back with that.

He also said that if he wants to play, but the devils dont want him, he'll go somewhere else

he's not going to retire if the devils dont sign him, but he'll listen to any offer lou throws at him

Well, he's not equipped to go through other teams' offers, he's not a lawyer. He hasn't needed an agent because he's never been to FA and clearly there's a trust with him and Lou. I just hope this isn't Marty wanting a multi year deal.

Is that true? Even in his 20s he negotiated his own deals? Impressive.
