Luongo for Brodeur+

24 posts in this topic

What about a trade around Luongo for Brodeur + ?

Brodeur had a shootout today, he is one of the most playoff proven goalie in history and he made it to the Stanley cup finals just last year.

Even at his age, Brodeur fit well in Vancouver windows of opportunity to win the cup. He still have it in the tank until his contract expire,

And even better, i know it had been said countless time before in all our Schneider to New Jersey proposal (Remember these Parise for Schneider proposal?), but i have to say it again : Brodeur could be a great mentor for Schneider.

I know Brodeur have been in NJ all his career, but the fact that he reached the UFA status prove that he must be open to other possibility.

So what do you guys think ?

Brodeur just shutout the Flyers for his 120th shutout. He is the face of the Devils and a living legend in net.

The price you would have to pay to get him to leave would be astronomical. He will retire a Devil.

There is significant value in a player whos about to retire that has played his entire career with the same organization.

You don't trade a guy who has done this for your team.

But you let him become a UFA on 1st July without signing him before?

Both sides knew he would sign, just the process took a while to get done. IE Subban, Benn, O'Reilly

I thought the whole point of moving Luongo was so Schneider could be the starter. In what world will Martin Brodeur backup anyone? He is easily one do the greatest golatenders of all time and he is coming off another Stanley Cup finals appearance.

This is probably, by far, the most preposterous trade proposal ever read in CDC. :picard:

I'm sorry, but AriGold is correct. Marty is close to being a priceless individual for the Devils. Luongo may be an all-time hero for the Canucks, but what Marty has done for the organization as well as the entire league is astronomical, compared to what Luongo has done in whole.

Brodeur is the best goalie to ever play the game. Luongo is probably the 2nd best active goalie, but he'll end up a solid 200 wins and 50 shutouts short of wherever Brodeur finishes.

Besides, Brodeur is probably done after this season, why bother?

OP, are you serious or just being stupid? The whole problem we have here is that we have 2 number one goalies, so you solve that by trading one of them. So then why the F would you bring in another number one goalie? You'd be back at square one you moron. You will have solved nothing but created even a bigger problem. Schneider doesn't need another mentor, he's ready now! The guy doesn't need his hand held his whole life. This is just so damn dumb!

Marty is the best of all-time.

Ari is right, this is a completely different scenerio, this isn't the situation Mats Sundin was in a few years ago, this isn't the situation Jarome Iginla is in right now, this isn't one of those scenerio's.

This is the greatest player of all time in his position, who has played his entire career with the same organization and has been unbelievably loyal and the loyalty has been mutual (Marty not having an agent till last summer tells u something about his loyalty to the Devils)

This is an entirely different situation than we have ever seen really, Broduer is probably one of the most untouchable players in the league, no chance this happens.

No way. They wouldn't trade the best goalie of all time. They show respect towards the best goalie to ever play for them... something Vancouver should learn to do...

Merely an opinion. Stating a proposal, involving a trade of Brodeur is an utter disrespect towards the future Hall-of-Famer, and therefore, I find the proposal utterly ludicrous.

Technically, trading a healthy, 33-year-old goalie for a soon-to-retire goaltender is not a viable option for any General Manager.
