Manny would definetly be the starter for the Devils with possibly either Brodeur or Clemmensson as the backup.

I can't envision a universe where Marty Brodeur would be backing up Manny Legace.

Manny to be traded? Weird.

No way would he ever be starter in place of Brodeur. Sure Marty hasn't been as great as he usually is this season but he's still been pretty darn good. There are a bunch of goalies right now that have a goals against of 3 and yet they are still playing really good. Brodeur is the best goalie in the NHL, period.

On the same note, I don't see them trading to get Manny as a backup either. Unless it is to light a fire under Marty's arse as the backup would be playing better than the starter. Then again, Manny hasn't had the chance to see what he can do on a team like the Devils have so maybe his stats would become worse than Brodeurs. Its hard to say because the Wings are good at padding players stats.

I was pretty much making the orignal statement as that would be pretty much the only reason the Devils would be after Manny, to replace Brodeur. Since I don't see that actually happening either, I don't think Manny will be a Devil any time soon.

I honestly don't see Manny going anywhere. Ozzie and Manny will be the 1 and 2 and Howard will be back in the AHL to get regular work.

Just one chance is all i ever wanted...just one time i'd like to win the game...from now on i'll take the chance if i can have it...just one just one

I don't even think that the Devils want Legace. I believe they the believe that Clemmensen is THEIR future. If I'm not also mistaken, I believe that they have one or two good goaltenders in their system down in the minors. Marty's been crapping it up, no doubt. I just don't see New Jersey trading for any goalies any time soon. If haven't really heard any Legace trade rumors outside of this cite, so we'll all have to see if anything happens day by day.
