    Wow. Huge, huge blow for the Devils. Would this mean his hunt for the records would be put on hold, or would there be enough game for him after he returns to grab "most wins" this season?

    If he comes back, it won't be until March or April. I doubt that there will be enough games remaining for him to break Roy's and Sawchuck's records.

    What's going to be interesting is to see what Lamoriello does. As of this moment, Kevin Weekes is the Devils' No. 1 goaltender. But he hasn't played a whole hell of a lot since 2005-06.


    Does Lou stand pat? Or does he ante up for a legitimate number one goaltender?

    Weekes didn't play badly last night, but I have trouble thinking the Devils are a playoff team if they don't go out and get someone.

    Remember what people was saying yesterday about the Devils never developing a true replacement/back-up for Brodeur? Those guys are looking really smart right now.

    I don't see what difference it'll make who's between the pipes. Weekes played well and was the third star last night, but the Devils aren't gonna win very many games if they can't put the puck in the net at the other end of the ice.

    On NHL Live, EJ Hradek and Billy Jaffe are discussing which goaltenders could be had. One of the names that was mentioned was Atlanta's Kari Lehtonen.

    Is he the one who was doing his sister in law?

    Yup. The sister-in-law is now his significant other.

    Bet those holiday gigs are a lot of fun. Of course, sis gets half his coin and doesn't have to put up with his shit.
    So if he does his sister-in-law again, he's actually doing his ex-wife?

    The Devils have been pretty lucky during Brodeur's career, in that he never really had a long term injur, considering how many games he plays each year. (Maybe I'm wrong on that though, but I don't remember any real long injuries).

    One could say it was bound to happen, especially with Brodeur getting older.

    In his autobiography, Brodeur admitted he was less-than-a-prince when he was married. If memory serves, he wrote that he and the sister-in-law-turned-live-in girlfriend have been together for awhile now.
