Martin Brodeur Returns

Thursday, 26 February 2009 02:00 AM Written by 

Arguably the greatest goaltender of all time, Martin Brodeur, will make his return tonight at home against the Colorado Avalanche.  Brodeur has not played in a game since November 1st when he tore a bicep in his left elbow in a game against the Thrashers.  This makes a tough Devils team even stronger now.  Brodeur has never been this fresh, this late in the season and it could help the Devils make a lot of noise in the playoffs this year.  This news is a must needed boost to Brodeur's owners who probably spent a first round pick on him and have been without his services for 4 months.  If you did the smart thing and picked up Clemmensen, then you're probably still in good shape and still are in the playoffs or in the playoff hunt and even though Clemmensen's been good for you, he's not Marty Brodeur.  As for the owners that rode the Clemmensen express while Marty was injured, this is the last stop.  I'm sure Clemmensen will get a game here and there, but his fantasy value is no where near what it was now.  It was a good ride while it lasted, but now its time to look for a new one.  Check out my NHL Stock Market reports for goalies that are probably on your waiver wire and can get the job done.
