RDS is making a big deal out of Brodeur's quote

http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/218747.html

Once again RDS tries to dramatize things.. It's as if Brodeur is a traitor or something because MTL wouldn't be his first choice. Well, who can blame him really?

When you post French articles, could you be kind enough to translate the important parts in English? Not all of us can speak French.

Well basically Brodeur was interviewed by RDS in a casual setting (his home), and one of the questions was "If you weren't playing with the NJD, which city would you prefer to play?".. and he said Philly, Boston and Dallas. So it's a big deal he didn't say Mtl like they expected him to say, as a good quebecer "should".

well, he also explained why he wouldn't want to come to Montreal but yeah... I think it's a good thing, maybe some more fans will understand that it's far from being everyone who wants to play in Montreal...

everytime a player is telling us this lame excuse, this is only making me laugh....

Just take a look at Brett Favre, everyone knows him in Green Bay, same thing for Payton Manning in Indiniapolis, Tom Brady in New-England etc....those guys are superstar, everyone know them , praise them or blame them for what happen to their team. This is the role of a superstar in a major sport.

I saw the actual interview, and the mood of it was casual and joking. Brodeur said his objective is to finish his career with the Devils, and I'm sure he will do it. If the media decides to play it up, I hope people are smarter than to simply take what they say at face value, and realize that the odds of Brodeur leaving the Devils is slim to none.

Enjoying your shirts?

And yeah, it's not like Brodeur will ever leave Jersey...

Well then they can always go play in the NAHL...

A superstar will always get those kind of reaction in a major sport (except when you are playing in a small market). Could you see Derek Jeter saying ''I don't want to play in NY anymore, I can't stand the pressure'' ? A guy like Johnny Damon decide to take the pressure (and a raise of salary) and came to play for the NY Yankees, even if everyone in NY will recognize him.

Yeah man thanks. I actually got them for a friend, who posts on here too. I wanted a Plekanec shirt!! Maybe next time im in Montreal they'll have them.

Your help was definitely appreciated though, and I'll never forget it!

Devils fan here. Couple of years ago, Marty was quoted as saying he'd love to play for the Canadiens someday before he retires. Mentioned how incredible it would be to have so many loud fans cheering on the team and it being a boyhood dream of his fwiw. He had some quotes in his new book over how discouraged he was to see Scott Niedermayer not play for his Country as well. You know he'd enjoy representing Canada for 82 games a year beyond the olympics.

I totally understand Marty's point of view, and that is why I'll do my best to avoid TV's around 11 tonight to make sure my ears aren't damaged by what nonsense could be said about the whole non-story.

Brodeur wouldn't give us a reason to be hard on him.

On second thought, you'd think the same could be said of Roy. Never mind.

Sure we are extremely hard on Huet and Aebischer

Theo was sloppy since late 2003 and we start booing him in early 2006. Plus, I am sure that a few of you guys knows a few stories about Theo ''out of the ice''. I think a few of us got tired of Theo on and off the ice. Just read the AVs message boards, his fan club is not really big at the moment...

I think that was before the media ran stories about him and his ex-wife. Class and good judgement are hardly qualities of the hockey-crazed pulpits of Montreal.
