Martin Brodeur might be the answer that the St. Louis Blues have been looking for in net. The team has been connected to Ryan Miller throughout the course of the season, and with the March 5 trade deadline inching closer, it’s not too surprising to see the rumor mill picking up a bit.
This new tidbit about St. Louis being in play for the legendary Devils netminder is certainly worth keeping an eye on moving forward. Especially given how high the cost for Miller will likely be. Brodeur would come at a discount given his age and the looming likelihood of retirement.
Eklund of HockeyBuzz.com has the latest on the goalie chatter:
Along the same lines I am hearing that the St. Louis Blues are turning their attention towards Brodeur. There is a scenario where the Capitals could end up with Jaroslav Halak and Brodeur could end up in St. Louis. The Blues are dead serious about improving their chances for the playoffs.
This may seem to be coming out of the blue, but it’s not the first time that St. Louis has been connected to Brodeur this season.
To be clear, Dreger just said the Islanders and Blues would be interested in Martin Brodeur? That just sort of happened?
