Brodeur :(WAY) Beyond the Crease: "My preference is for Canada to stay together, but it's not unusual for Quebec-born athletes to get dragged into the endless debate over the province's future in Canada...Gatorade hurts my stomach and water just doesn't give me enough of a lift...Don't give the agents too much credit, It's not that hard...These were the same people who had certified David Frost as an agent...These are subtle ways in which the unfamiliarity of players is expressed..."

Feel free to buy it for me for Christmas. Why is he putting out a book now? Shouldn't he be waiting until his career is over?

So Brodeur wrote a book and..., whats the discussion here again? Just asking.

Sorry, I forgot the summarizing article link. Fris, he speaks directly to that point. "I wanted to bring people to the level I'm at right now because it's easy to write a book after you're done...But I've got a few more years to go and I wanted to show how I felt right now as I'm experienced it." Nothing in particular. I just find Brodeur a good insightful quote. I'm eager to read his comments on Team Canada of Turin.

""Why is he putting out a book now? Shouldn't he be waiting until his career is over?"" and I thought it was over about 3 years ago..

Gatorade hurts my stomach and water just doesn't give me enough of a lift That's why I drink pure gasoline. I'm Martin Brodeur and I approve this message.

""Why is he putting out a book now? Shouldn't he be waiting until his career is over?"" and I thought it was over about 3 years ago.. Yeah it was totally over when he was winning 40 games with GAA right around 2. I fucking hate this guy, like Manny Ramirez hate him, and even I can't shit on him that much.

I hate the Devils with a deep wrenching acid burn, but I have to give it up for Brodeur. When he finally does get around to retiring, he's going to be right in the discussion of the greatest goalies of all time. Terry Sawchuck's 103 shutouts is well within his reach from here, as is Patrick Roy's wins record. It does not please me to type this.

I'm with chicobangs; I also hate the Devils but must admit Brodeur along with Roy are the great goalies of our time.That doesn't mean I have to like either one; they're both arrogant and insufferable.

I'm not a Devils fan either, but I am a Brodeur fan. I've enjoyed watching him over the years. I met him once in a bar when he was in San Jose. He seemed like a nice guy. We talked about hockey and traveling and just shot the shit for about an hour.
