Devils’ Brodeur: Playing Time Will Impact My Choice


After what likely was his last game as a New Jersey Devil, goaltender Martin Brodeur didn’t have to think hard when asked about the most challenging part of this past year.

The 41-year-old netminder, a future first-ballot Hall of Famer, was not happy with his playing time.

He made no effort to conceal that.

“Not playing as much, that’s an obvious one,” Brodeur said about abdicating the starting spot to heir apparent Cory Schneider. “It was difficult. And again, the position the coaching staff was in with having two goalies as No. 1s, it just doesn’t work. It didn’t work in Vancouver. It didn’t work here too good. We didn’t make the playoffs.”
