NHL trade rumor roundup: Martin Brodeur wants out?

Bruce Bennett

Martin Brodeur reportedly wants out of New Jersey, but who is going to trade for him?

It seems that Martin Brodeur may have made general manager Lou Lamoriello's decision an easy one.

According to Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos, Brodeur told his general manager on Tuesday night that he wants out of New Jersey and that Lamoriello will do his best to accommodate that request.

The problem New Jersey is going to run into is what exactly is the market right now for a goalie that wants to be a starter? Not to mention a goalie that is clearly at the end of his career and, by pretty much any objective measure, has been one of the worst goalies in the league this season.

Minnesota already filled its hole in net with Ilya Bryzglaov. St. Louis picked up Ryan Miller.  That might leave the Chicago Blackhawks if they want a veteran goalie to backup Corey Crawford, but that wouldn't give Brodeur the opportunity to play more games.

If he does go, he ended his team in New Jersey with a win on Tuesday night.
