Agent: Brodeur willing to wait until season starts to find 'the right fit'

by Jul 13, 6:21 PM

With the initial free agent frenzy now well in the past, one big name that remains on the market is goaltender Martin Brodeur. 

According to his agent, Pat Brisson, the 42-year-old netminder is willing to wait until the puck drops on a new season in order to find the best fit for his services.

“On or around July 1, we explored a few possibilities for Marty that made somewhat sense. That didn’t come to fruition,” Brisson told Tom Gulitti of NorthJersey.com.

“Marty has a lot to offer, but it will be the right fit and this may come later this summer or even early in the season," Brisson added.

"He is in no rush until the right fit appears. In the meantime he is getting ready the same way he has the past 20 seasons.”

Whether Brodeur does have "a lot to offer" may be up for debate, as evidenced by his .901 save percentage this past season. 

He is believed to have spoken to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs. 

With Cory Schneider locked into the starting gig in New Jersey (and Scott Clemmensen penciled in as the backup), it may not be a matter of the right fit, but whether there's any fit to be found at all.
