Martin Brodeur

We’ve all heard the reports that the Leafs are interested in Martin Brodeur, arguably the greatest goalie of all time.

Not only would Brodeur provide an excellent backup to Bernier, but he might even be more valuable to the Leafs as a mentor to the Leafs young goaltender. That will probably be one of the lures that the Leafs use.

This is a longshot to happen as Brodeur probably wants to go someplace where he can win another Stanley Cup in the next season or two.

  1. Claude Lamontagne says:

    why can’t we keep a good duo in the net?

    • Jeffrey Langridge says:

      Because Reimer wants out. It won’t be good in the locker room if there is someone who doesn’t want to be there.

  2. old hockey fan says:

    Jeff is it just me or are the names of the 5 goalies not mentioned. This leaves the gate wide open.

  3. Ednan Ahmed says:

    Ok 2 scenarios

    Let Bolland go and sign McClement and Komarov

    Sign Bolland and trade Kadri with Phaneuf and Reimer to a team for something special these are good players you could get an Ovechkin for this type of talent

    Who gives a damn about the backup goalie sign whoever or bring someone up don’t waste money on this spot unless you sign a hall of fame like Brodeur

    Btw there’s something wrong about Brodeur wearing a leafs jersey…

    • Alex Jones says:

      I think you are greatly over-valuing Kadri, Phaneuf & Reimer. If you were too trade all three to one team you might and I stress might find the elusive 1st line centre.
      Kadri is young and has some speed which teams might covet.
      Phaneuf was shown last year to have lost a step, if he had it. Yes he’s a reliable 3-5 person but with that contract he needs to be a 1 or 2. He’s not quick enough to cover. especially as the east is becoming faster.
      Reimer is a good backup but not consistent to be a #1

      • Ednan Ahmed says:

        You have a starting goalie in Reimer a first line defenceman in Phaneuf and a 2nd line centre in Kadri who is going to be a point a game player in his prime Reimer is still young and Phaneuf is primed all 3 have all star capability

        I think they are undervalued by Toronto fans and media and they can give a team a major boost like Edmonton or Calgary

        • Simon says:

          @ednan ahmed… You obviously know nothing about hockey! Are you f$$$$ kidding me!!! Your notion of trading Phaneuf Kadri and Reimer for one of the best goal scorers in hockey is absurd! Take off the rose coloured glasses off and stop playing GM. Would you trade RW Phil Kessel for Goalie micheal nuewirth dman Mike Green and C Evgeny Kuznetsov ….Then why in the rightmibd would Washington trade ovechkin. Give your head a shake man!

          • Ednan Ahmed says:

            Eh it could happen more pieces might have to be in play doesn’t have to be Ovechkin could be Malkin or Whoever

          • Ednan Ahmed says:

            Also why do I have to stop playing GM you are on a free agent blog I’m saying it’s a great package of players and it is they’re all good players who can make a difference

      • Ednan Ahmed says:

        Reimer is awesome Alex, you and everybody else forgets what he did prior to this past year when he was treated like garbage

  4. Mark Douglas says:

    J.S. Giguere retired at the end of the 2013-2014 season, so I doubt he’ll sign with the Leafs, or anyone else for that matter.

    • Jeffrey Langridge says:

      Wasn’t aware of that. Saw him on Capgeek’s UFA list and thought he would be a good fit.

      • Mark Douglas says:

        I remember watching him and Selanne take a final farewell skate around the rink together after Colorado and Anaheim played each other in the last game of the regular season. Both seemed to be calling it a career. If Giggy wasn’t then I agree with you, he would have been a great mentor and backup (especially as a fellow Quebecois) to Bernier.

    Leafs didn’t even give young T.J.Brennan a chance what a goof! Good luck T.J. with the Islanders! Borges chooses Buffalo good luck in the cellar!
