Martin Brodeur pad size:
Length: 37 in
Width: Top: About 10 1/4 to 10 1/2 inches. Bottom: 11 inches (which is the max allowed)

I believe Lundqvist uses the max width all around and with the new rule that actually uses your height to determine the max pad length, he only had to trim off a half an inch. So for Lundqvist's height, he uses the max allowed.

Whoa those are some massive pads compared to Brodeur.

If Brodeur is using bigger pads because he's "alot slower," shouldn't that mean he's using skill he doesn't have anymore to win? Yet apparently he can do that, but Lundqvist can't. Great logic.
fisrtly, broduer has used the smallest pads in the league for most of his career. and compared to his speed when he was 25 he is alot slower. hes 40 years old and is still using smaller pads then lundqvist. so he still has more skill then lundqvist will ever have. so yea it is great logic.

I'd say having the 2nd most Vezina trophies since 1982 (before then it was what the Jennings trophy is now, so it was easy for goalies in dynasties to win it constantly) suggests he has been consistently exceptional.

Alright, that's just nonsense. Congratulations for making the most ridiculous post of the day.

Speaking of Brodeur, he just gave up 4 goals on 7 shots in the OP Hattrick game

Omg! I forget, how did Brodeur do against the Rangers in the playoffs? It all seems so long ago.

It's a charity game dude

I just find it funny that he's getting racked up as we're having this discussion.

BTW Lundqvist has stopped all 23 shots

Well that you never know. If Lundqvist doesn't win a Cup by then, I think he will try his hardest to stay on his A game to win a Cup. Right now, Brodeur doesn't really have anything to play for, just for icing on the cake.

Remember when you lost a playoff series to a Queen with giant pads? It's a similar feeling.

You obviously weren't paying attention if you try to use the Devils making the finals are an argument for Larsson.

ill agree with that. but i wouldnt say marty isnt playing for anything. he loves the game. i think everyone wants to win a cup. sure hes basically padding stats but he also wants to go out with a bang these next 2 years (1 year if the lockout doesnt end.) but i could see lundy playin at an old age. definitley if he hasnt won a cup by then like u said.

Mcdonagh is already close to peak IMO, and Canucks have Hamhuis as a shutdown dman already, so I'd take Larsson... I bet him and Edler would be killer together.. ultimate TWD combo

I'd be okay saying Mcdonagh as of now. I do expect Larsson to take that spot though sooner than later.

Now: McDonagh, not particularly close.

Future: I think McD will be one of the top shutdown D in the league for a long time. Larsson has the potential to be great on both sides of the puck, which I don't see quite as much in McD. I'll take either, just depends on if you want an elite one-way player or great two-way.

Okay. That article about pad size changes states that at the time, Bordeur was using 35s, and because of his size (6'2) the maximum is 37. He now uses 37, the maximum a goalie of his size can use. Lundqvist is 6'1, meaning that he is shorter than Bordeur, making it most likely that his maximum pad size is also smaller than Brodeur's. if Brodeur is using the maximum allowed for him, how could Lundqvist's pad be bigger?
