Devils' Martin Brodeur could be open to a trade

According to ESPN,

The future Hall of Fame goaltender told the Newark Star-Ledger on Tuesday that he’d consider waiving the no-trade clause in his contract if the Devils were keen on making a deal.

“I hope it will never happen, but if there is a situation that could be really fun for me and really good for the Devils, why not? It’s not like I’m going to play 25 more years here,” Brodeur told the Star-Ledger.

Yeah, you read that correctly. Long-time Devils goalie Martin Brodeur is mulling over the idea of a possible trade. This is no indication that a trade will happen, but in the NHL, you never know. Just because that he is thinking about his future, doesn’t mean he’ll defintiely leave the Devils if he gets the chance.

Brodeur also told ESPN.com that he would consider it only if Devils GM Lou Lamoriello approached him about it.

“It would have to come from Lou, not from me, I would never ask Lou that,” Brodeur said. “He would have to ask me. I would do whatever Lou thought was right.”

The New Jersey Devils are currently looking a a record of 3-7-4, and are in 6th place in the Metropolitan Division, and 13th in the Eastern Conference overall.

What do you think? Do you believe Brodeur should wave his no-trade clause and accept a possible trade to a contending team if one should arise in the future?
