My condolences go out to his family and loved ones. It's life, but it's still sad. Rest in peace Mr. Brodeur.

Wish Deboer had let Anthony play a game with Marty, Denis Brodeur's picture would have been a very emotional legacy for the family. RIP

Very very sad. Thorough his camera, the guy was there for such incredible moments in hockey. Sad that while he watched his son during his whole career, he will be missing maybe his last year, his retirement and his hall of fame intronisation. Will be a heck of an odd year for Martin that's for sure. Rest in peace Mr. Brodeur...pretty sure there's some incredible pictures to take from where you are at now....My father knew him well, being a usher at the Olympic Stadium, Montreal Forum, Molson and Bell Centre....I,m sure he welcomed him with open arms...

Here's a link to his top 10 photos. Will always remember #2...Claude Lemieux's goal against big Mike Liut. And you have to love the look in John Ferguson's face....can't wait till we get another big mean machine in our team.

Just heard Serge Savard say he was his first coach with the Habs (juniors...) ... I absolutely ignored that!

I have his Summit Series book... Who barely holds on, but I have it

RIP Denis

Real tragic week in the Brodeur family. I understand Martin's brother was amputated last week.

Denis Brodeur sure built his career the ground up. Fascinating how he made a name for himself:

Quote:
Jacques Beauchamp, the larger-than-life sports editor of Montréal-Matin, offered him a job freelancing, work complicated by the fact Brodeur didn’t have a pass to get into the Forum and that he was shooting crime for some of the city’s spicy tabloids.

Canadiens GM Frank Selke finally gave Brodeur access, his first photos shot from behind the low corner glass as he balanced his boxy Roliflex with one hand and lifted his flash above the glass with the other.

He would shoot a single frame, wait maybe 10 minutes for his dying flash to recycle, and hope that by the end of the game he’d have an image he could sell Beauchamp for $3.
LINK

RIP.

Sad. Found out about his passing away when they acknowledged it at the game last night. No offence to WS and the link he posted, but monsieur Brodeur's best pic is...



This embodies the essence of sports. Perfection.



May you rest in peace, sir.

Just wanted to send my condolences to Monsieur Denis Brodeur.

Also to Mr. Plekanec (father of Tomas Plekanec) who recently passed away.

May they both rest in peace.


This is not meant as a joke or anything like that...I actually hope Tomas Plekanec and Martin Brodeur call each other to console each other since both of their fathers passed away at almost the same time. It may be good for both of them to talk to each other and console each other. Good time for friendship bonding, imo.


R.I.P for Mr. Plekanec.
R.I.P for Monsieur Denis Brodeur.

@Ledger_NJDevils: Brodeur said he didn't quite get to Montreal before his dad died. "I was close."
