11:16AM: There is no indication from the Wild that Brodeur will be traded to Minnesota after the game. “No NHL GM is going to risk a trade to let somebody play one more ceremonial game in front of fans, risk injury and ruin trade.” (Michael Russo)
11AM: Martin Brodeur will play his last game with the Devils on Tuesday night, before being traded to the Minnesota Wild, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
In the rumored trade, Brodeur would start for the Devils against the Detroit Red Wings at home on Tuesday night. After the game, he would waive his no-trade clause and be traded to the Minnesota Wild.
“The source said Brodeur and Devils president and GM Lou Lamoriello met last week where they discussed teams Brodeur would and would not accept as a landing spot,” Andy Clayton wrote.
Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player to score 700 NHL goals, sparking New Jersey’s four-goal second period, and Martin Brodeur earned the win in his first start in over a month as the Devils routed the New York Islanders 6-1 on Saturday.
