I just read he thinks the Caps are going to trade Semin for Broduer straight up, Broduer is still a great goalie but why would the Caps trade one of there best young forwards for a goalie that has 1 maybe 2 more years left. If this deal happens the Caps are making a big mistake

40G 44A in 73GP this season
34G 45A in 62GP last year



Here is the scenario as it appears to be starting to come together.

1. The Devils want to keep Kovalchuk.
2. Martin Brodeur is not a given to keep playing much longer, and will be hired the second he retires to work in the Devils front office.
3. Kovalchuk would consider staying if the Devils would go out and get Semin to play with him.
4. Brodeur would agree to play one (possibly 2) years in Washington. Firming up their goaltending situation and making the Caps the HUGE favorite to win a Stanley Cup. Then he could return to work for the Devils, who would be in a much better situation.
5. Semin is a great player, but the Caps are not opposed to moving him for Brodeur. Interestingly, the Caps signed him to a very short deal.

I am now thoroughly convinced that Eklund cooks up trades on the NHL "xx" series on his xbox and then posts them as rumors...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Brodeur at this stage of his career would fit with Washington. Chokes in the playoffs, match made in heaven.

That's retarded. The Devils are as likely to trade Brodeur as the Wings are to trade Lidstrom.

And considering that the Caps aren't a particularly defensively skilled team, Brodeur would be run out of town halfway through the season.

No way this is true. Brodeur imo is only as good as his defense (which NJ had some of the best, not necessarily last year) Washington needs defense and a goaltender badly, but I wouldn't trade Semin for Brodeur.

The only way im trading Semin is if its for someone like Quick or Bernier a young goalie, but i heard Jeff Carter is going straight up for Bernier or Carter and 1st round pick for Quick

Look at Eklunds Twitter. He is trying to argue that he was just gossiping about what is possible, and that gossip and rumors are the exact same thing. Silly Eklund...

The important point of that poster was at this point in his career. If you've watched the Devils recently in the playoffs, Brodeur has been quite bad.

TWO Olympic Gold Medals


I understood what you are trying to get at here but man, if he was in there for Canada at any point past the US domination of Canada, there would have only been 1. Still a great career and would hardly say chokes but this guy is on the very downside of his automatic HOF credentials.
