Reports: Brodeur pretended he'd leave NJ in order to up the offer from the Devils

I'm picturing Lou Lamoriello driving the Krispy Kreme truck into Brodeur's driveway this morning.

Who dared question Brodeur's loyalty?

The Devils are like his family. He always keeps it in the family.

Haha, yes. The Devils are lucky they don't have a sister-in-law.

Anyone else hearing stuff on the Twittersphere about Parise being down to a New Jersey or Chicago decision?

Not so much. Last I heard it was down to Minnesota and Pittsburgh. I've also seen Philly's name thrown around. Very hard to tell what's real and what's bullshiat at this point.

Very true. Choosing to believe the story I noted because it includes my team in the running and has at least a mild whiff of authority having an ESPN in his Twitter handle, just not purely a blogger, lol. All the hype yesterday was about Pittsburgh and Minnesota, though, you're right about that, so.

Tick tock tick tock.

As a devils fan, I'm disappointed they're giving him so much. I love the guy and I'm glad to see him back but I was hoping for one year, 3 million at most so they could get another goalie and move on.

I'm surprised they re-signed BOTH Brodeur and Hedberg to two year deals. They're combined ages are equal to the time span since the last ice age.

This never made sense to me at the time... maybe someone could lend a hand.

I was once at South Mountain Arena. I was watching my kids' friends play hockey. I don't really follow hockey, but I could tell they were having a lot of fun! Anyway, a boy comes up and sits near me. He keeps eyeballing me and my friend with this shiat-eating smirk. He begins to explain to us that he's related to someone famous. Someone we would know. My friend is a real wise-ass, and he challanges the boy to prove it.

The kid bids us to follow him. So we do. Following the plucky child, we walk down towards the ice, and we come upon a chubby, middle-aged man. He's eating a pink frosted dounut, like the one Homer Simpson is partial to. Some of the icing is sticking to his face. He's wearing a #30 NJ Devils sweater. He licks off his fingers, and shakes our hands.

So the boy says to my friend: I intorduce to you... my father and my uncle. And then he nodded triumphantly.

9 million? That will supplement the social security checks nicely.

This is either epic hilarity or complete failure and I really can't decide.

But the image of that syrup-guzzling sister-farker in my head right now is absolutely hysterical. Good job.

And Calgary is again grinding against the cap with a mediocre line-up that is plain bad down the middle.

Feaster's Millions, the re-make of the reboot of the sequel.

Saw that. 16 million for Jiri Hudler? As bad as things have been for Toronto at least Burke has been building a young team that has some potential. I don't know what the fark Calgary is doing.

Hey, Jiri Hudler is a great player as long as nobody touches him. Good thing this is hockey.

I'm trying to figure out what the last "good move" Calgary made.

I used to hate Iginla, as he would go into beast mode on the Canucks, but lately I just feel sorry for him.

Aaaaaaaaand Parise needs more time.

Why hold a press conference when you have nothing to say?

Oh he's saying plenty. "I need more time" = "Give me more money".

I interpret it as him giving New Jersey a chance. I think he'd made up his mind between Pittsburgh and Minnesota but wanted to let the Devils match. Or maybe he really is torn about leaving. Or going to Minnesota for a maximum payout versus going to Pittsburgh for a solid chance at the Cup.

I've interpreted nothing!

He didn't. The media was camping outside his agent's office.
 
2012-07-02 05:30:48 PM  
Hopefully the "I need more time" stuff is "I need to hear the wife say it's okay to leave millions on the table to stay in New Jersey," lol. Fingers crossed.

Brodeur said he wanted to guarantee a 2 year deal for what he described as security/peace of mind. Didn't want the "will he/won't he be back show" again next season when spring comes and the contract is ending. NJ initially offered 1. He would have left (in theory) for another team for 2.

This is hockey, dude. That lends him negative authority.
