Devils legend voices opinion regarding today's goalies

Published March 27, 2024 at 6:00 PM

NHL legend Martin Brodeur was recently interviewed saying that today's goalies are often babied and that he does not agree with modern workloads.

The current VP of hockey operations for the Devils said that many many goaltenders get the easy way out because teams do not want to lose a goalie to injury. Brodeur does not like these new ways and believes goaltenders should be able to play the majority of a season just like the rest of the team.

"I think we baby our goalies," the New Jersey Devils executive vice president of hockey operations told The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun on Tuesday. "I see it. I'm part of it. It's like, my goalie coach will say, 'He's played five games the past eight days ' I'm like, 'So?'"- Brodeur

Brodeur also added that his not a fan of the new systems of a 1A and 1B goalie, he believes a team should have 1 starter that plays in at least 65-70 games per season.

The former Devil does have a biased opinion as he played in at least 70 games in 12 of his 22-season career.
