Marty through the eyes of his peers

He's the best seems to be the consensus.

Its not like they are gonna say he is overrated. Its a tribute to him.

But in all seriousness, he is great. Its unbelievable that he is able to be so consistent and play so many games as well as he does. Cant wait till he retires.

Haha, man just for you, I hope Marty and Lou extend his contract through 2016

I wish he would stay for next season, but it doesnt seem likely seeing the playing time he gets.

Billy Smith sums it up right here:

Quote:

"He's the best goalie in the NHL. His style is a lot similar to my style. It always makes me laugh when I see people coaching goalies and everybody teaches goalies butterfly. Does it work for Patrick Roy? Yeah, he's 6-foot-4. For a guy my size, and I'm 5-10, if I go down on my knees and play the butterfly everything is going to go over my shoulders. Marty Brodeur, I'm glad to see it. He's a stand up and does the one knee drop. All of us were stand-up goalies in the old days. Now everybody wants to be a butterfly. They block the puck instead of want to control it and that's why Marty Brodeur is the best in the League. He controls it."
How can you look at Marty and the success he has and still teach the butterfly to every young goalie. When I played goalie, Marty's style always seemed like the best one to try to copy. There's not many goalies that have had huge success with it that aren't over 6'3.

He might stay just to go around telling all his friends when he's retired that he was Marty's back-up for a few seasons.
