Brodeur Extends Leave from St Louis

Will more time away cure Brodeur's case of the blues?

NHL Tonight

The NHL All-Star Break begins tomorrow, but for Blues goalie Martin Brodeur it’s already well under way. Having appeared in just seven games and sporting a pedestrian 3-3 record with a 2.87 goals-against-average and .899 save percentage Brodeur is no All Star this season.

The NHL’s all-time winningest goaltender was granted a one week leave of absence from the team on January 14, but apparently that wasn’t long enough to reflect on his future. Brodeur signed  a one-year deal with St. Louis on December 2 after spending the first 20 seasons of his remarkable career with the New Jersey Devils.

Brodeur has registered 691 NHL victories, holds a .912 save percentage and a career 2.24 GAA with an NHL record 125 shutouts.

Is this simply a case of the Goaltender Blues? Does Marty miss New Jersey too much? And is playing for a Stanley Cup contender in St. Louis really that bad?

This is how every hockey fan will remember Brodeur.
