Brodeur just hired a new agent, and speculation is that he may test the open market.  Not sure I understand this move by him.  If he was debating not even coming back for this season and was seriously considering retirement, why wouldn't he want to stick with the team he's been with for 19 seasons and retire a Devil?  Makes zero sense to me. Hopefully he realizes this and just signs another 1 year deal with the Devils and retires following this season.  If he does that, he won't risk tainting his image to the fans that have been cheering him on his entire career.
