No, it's a joke about Rangers fans, who seem to think that it's every player's dream to play for the Rangers. Rangers fans have actually said the things that were in his post.

Well, I still think he will sign another contract once his current one runs out.

i can see marty playing around the same workload as he's used to for the remaining two years of his contract. after that, i can see him signing for another three years at a reduced cost, maybe splitting the duties with another goalie the first year and possibly playing in twenty or so games each of the following years. he's always done the right thing for the benefit of the devils organization and he'll mentor his eventual replacement.

i'd be fine with him signing a one year contract with montreal after that if he would like to play for the team he cheered for growing up. it would be great to see him retire as a devil, but i could live with that, if that's his desire.

A lot of this will depend on how he feels, if he suffers any more major injuries, etc. I have no idea how it'll play out, but if there's any goalie that can handle playing into his mid-40s of the last generation, it's Marty because of his style. Roy had game left in him, but his knees and hips weren't willing to keep up with the rest of him...a common problem for butterfly goalies as they get a lot of games. Hasek kept playing at a high level later in life too, though he obviously was even harder on his body in some ways than a butterfly guy would be. (Even the highest qualities slinkys start to wear down after time.)

Marty has always been more conservative with his movements, less stressful on his joints. In theory, he could go farther than Roy and Hasek did into later life as an effective goalie because of that. It all remains to be seen of course, but it definitely works in his favor.

Agreed.....there is a lot of pride and look at soem top guys like Roy and Hasek. Marty definitele plays out this contract. After that I'd say he either retires outright if he feels he no longer perform at the top of his game. After all, what else will he feel he has to prove? Otherwise, I say he signs a 2 year contract (at 3-4 mil per) where he is listed as the starter and gets the "majority" of games, however the team will transition to their successor who will get increase minutes each year. Marty plays 55 games the first year and 40 the next.

Marty's kids already play hockey and in 5 years, they will be in the high school ranks. I could see Marty wanting to take a solid interest there.....so that is another thing to consider.

Don't worry guys, Brodeur Jr is already preparing himself for his future team.

He could sign with Montreal then either ask to be traded back or set up a mutual agreement in the contract to be sent back to NJ to retire. I really think he would like to play at least one year with Montreal before he retires because he always mentions his thoughts of playing there. It could be one of those Ray Borque kind of things, except I don't want them to win the cup!

I'll give him 5 more years, barring injury. Which pains me to say.

I don't have any clue how long he'll play for, but I will tell you this, he will never wear a different sweater.

At least 4... I'm guessing 6.

Has anyone even seen a noticeable decline in his play? He hasn't necessarily been #1 every single year his entire career. He had been outplayed by Roy and Hasek at times, but he was never outside of the top 3, and he still isn't. He's also a very smart, crafty goalie, who doesn't need to make crazy flexible saves because of his great positioning.

His knees and lower back are the only thing I'd imagine might be a problem once he gets past 40. We don't really know what kind of toll his hybrid style does on a body.

I say he has at least 7 more years. I would not be surprised if he's able to make himself game ready into the late 40's. The man knows what he has accomplished and is still hungry for more. Everyone who speaks about him, talks about how much he loves the game. His style is probably the least stressful physically while being the most effective. Like I said he is aware of the records and I don't think he is just happy to pass them he wants to shatter them. Unfortunately I don't see him remaining a Devil throughout his career (blasphemy I know and no one will hate to see that day come more than me).

He is the ying and the yang, the alpha and the omega. He is the highlander. He will ascend back to heaven when he decides. He will play at least until he's five thousand.

Nah, the reality of the situation is that Brodeur will retire when Thornton carries his regular season success over to the playoffs. Keeping in mind how big of a mental midget Thornton is, I'd say Marty has a plethora of years left.

COUGH COUGH CHOKE
