@ the bolded


Thats part of his charm. So elite, one of the best goalies ever and he always had a little jowel, just a bit chubby

Glad to see this deal get done for both the fans of the Devils and the NJ franchise.

Other teams are paying more for a starting goalie than the devils are paying for Brodeur and Hedberg looks like a good deal to me.

The natural order of things has been restored.

Really happy Marty will end his remarkable career with the Devils.

You knew it was going to happen but it would have been so much fun if he left.

Glad him and the Devils stuck together. Would have sucked to see him finish his career on another team.

Its hard to imagine a NJD-NYR game without Brodeur... glad to see him finishing out his career on just one team. The rivalry will definitely lose something and become less intense when he retires. I don't think i've ever seriously hated someone that i never met as much as i did Brodeur when he was winning 24 or so straight games against us back in the late 90's and early 2000s.

I'd be disappointed to see him go anywhere else.

Same, I am VERY glad he did the right thing and stayed with the Devils. Marty can't be in any other jersey than a Devils one.

So how much flak has Lou gotten for signing two 40ish year old goalies for 2 years?

Boy I love the fact Marty is back, and I agree Lou HAD to give him the 2nd year. I just hope this doesn't kill us. I doubt it will.

Actually...looking at this list, I think we've lost our spot as the top goaltending country. We used to own this position up until the 2000's.

USA has better goalies, and most other countries have comparable goalies. Still, I doubt Marty plays.

Oh, and we still have the best forwards, and (by far) the best D.
talk about a downgrade..

I'm impressed that even the Rangers fans are happy about Marty staying with the Devils. That's the mark of respect for a worthy adversary.

Is this the 1st time every fan for another team is glad that a player signed with their own team instead of theirs.

This guy is a legend in that red white and black. I couldn't see him in anything else.
