Martin Brodeur is staying with the Devils. 2 years / 9 millions. Great news for the Devils fans and that franchise.

Big sigh of relief. Not sure why he wanted 2 years if he seemed to want to decide year by year if he's coming back but i'd assume that this means he's committed to 2 more years and then he's done.

I hate to be that guy, but he needed the two year deal. That divorce settlement is a stinger.

But yeah, so happy he's back.

He`s getting 9 million no matter what. If he signed a 5m one year deal, he`d finish the season and probably retire. Smart decision on his part.

He got a bit more than I thought he would, but I don't care, Marty is retiring a Devil. That's all I care about!

Great news!

This also probably means that Parise is leaving. Lou probably found out early today and pulled the trigger on Marty's contract.

20 freaking years of loyalty and service isn't worth it I guess.

Nah, a two year deal worth 4.5 mil would not affect signing Parise one way or the other.

I couldn't picture him not being here. At the same time, I was getting nervous.

Glad to see Marty will only wear one sweater. Will be much sweeter when his jersey is in the rafters. It might sting a bit if he falls off next year or especially next year, but it had to be done.

Lou probably signed him because they know Zach is going after the money & could afford him now.

Marty better be playing 1/2 he games & mentoring his replacement this upcoming season.

Let's just hope it's not 42 year old Roloson bad. At least the Devs will have a better defense than TB.

We're not going to be spending to the cap anyway in the next 2 yrs. It won't matter.

Exactly.
What your saying is my point. He could hurt the team if he decides to forgo the final year but I don't think he would do that. There must be a plan in place whither its moose for one more year and then groom whoever steps up this season (Wedge, Kinkaid) in Marty's last season.

Great to know we have 2 more years of Marty!

This is what I wanted. The thought of Marty fielding offers from other teams made me sick, let alone thinking about him signing with one of them. If Zach leaves now... He leaves. This alone made me happy for the offseason.

Why?

The Devil's are no longer a cap team anyway. What's the big deal?

Wedgewood or Kinkaid are not ready to be NHL back-ups yet. Hell Wedgewood hasn't played a pro game yet. This is how I see it

2012-2013 NHL
Marty
Moose

2012-2013 AHL
Wedgewood
Kinkaid

2013-2014 NHL
Brodeur
Wedgewood

2013-2014 AHL
Kinkaid
whoever

I think Lou did that for the sake of making up for Marty's dedication to the team & the less pay he took for them over the years.

Honorable of Lou. But still.............
