Brodeur won't discuss future
TheFourthPeriod.com

New Jersey Devils goaltender and future Hall-of-Famer Martin Brodeur refuses to discuss his future with the team, as the trade deadline approaches.

Brodeur, who owns a no-trade clause, does not want to discuss publicly whether or not he wants to be traded by March 5.

"It's nobody else's business but mine as for the direction I want to go," Brodeur told The Star-Ledger after practice Wednesday.

"It's been tough because you go through ups and downs. The more questions I'm asked, sometimes my answers change. That's why in the last few weeks I've been more quiet about it. It's on purpose, because I want to make sure my decision is an educated decision and there are no influences from the outside. Show up Thursday and you'll know if I'm on the plane to Detroit."

Brodeur hasn't met with Devils GM Lou Lamoriello about his plans, but it has been widely speculated that he would accept a trade to a contender.

With Cory Schneider handling most of the starter's duties in New Jersey these days, Brodeur could see more ice time on a Stanley Cup contender before he decides to hang up his skates.

"It's definitely a difficult situation for both the organization and myself to go through at this point, but we'll see what transpires in the next week," he said.

Meanwhile, Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr understands that he could be traded, as well, by the deadline.

Jagr does not own a no-trade clause and could be dealt if Lamoriello receives an offer he deems acceptable.
