Was NOT keen on him landing in Chicago.

Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

It would've been so odd seeing him leave NJ considering he's done everything and more in his celebrated career. It's not like he needs to pull a Borque.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Exactly, why tarnish your reputation as a franchise hero just for a few more $, when you're already a multi-millionaire? Glad he made
the right decision in the end.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

In the end, not really surprising. His agent was probably just stirring things up a bit showing NJ that Marty would have plenty of takers.

Good to see he'll retire a devil.

I was kind of surprised about this. This doesn't plan for NJ's future very well, with Brodeur and Hedberg as your combination. I think sentimentality took over Lou. The only thing left on Brodeur's career since he's won everything is to use these next 2 years to bring a non-playoff team closer to Cup contender and mentor a younger goalie ... I was really hoping that we'd face him in the Winter Classic.

Lol, seriously.

Did anyone actually believe he was going to leave Jersey and sign somewhere else?
