“And don’t forget Brodeur and Lou Lamoriello, the president and general manager of the New Jersey Devils, “have not burned any bridges with each other” according to Tom Gulitti of The Record.
Even with the Devils signing Clemmensen to compete with Kieth Kinkaid for the back up job, what if Clemmensen gets injured or doesn’t perform well? He was signed to a two-way contract, so he’s not guaranteed NHL ice time.
What if Kinkaid isn’t ready for the NHL level yet? Don’t be surprised if Brodeur returns to rescue New Jersey and earns his 700th win the right way — in a Devils uniform.”
Back in August, I made a bold prediction that former New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur would not end up retiring this season, and that he would end up either playing for the Minnesota Wild or end up back in Jersey.
It’s now November, and although it appears his illustrious career wont carry over into Minnesota, rumor has it he could end up back in New Jersey.
I personally think it makes sense for Brodeur to come back, especially if Cory Schneider is on the verge of making 18 consecutive starts, and if my prediction above appears to stand true.
