Last week it was reported that Brodeur would likely test the free-agent market, but the Devils seemed intent on keeping one of the franchise’s biggest stars. At 40 years old, Brodeur’s two-year deal will help him push the all-time wins and shutouts records further from reach.
Next on the docket for the Devils is re-signing captain Zach Parise. He’s coming off a one-year deal worth $6 million, and a report states that offers for Parise have ranged from $80 million to upward of $100 million for 13 years.
