I'd have no problem if Burke threw a big-monied, two-year deal towards Brodeur.  :-X

I might also consider a third (with a slightly lesser hit) and resign myself that I'd likely be throwing that 3rd year away. Basically;

Say, 6.25 / 5 / 3.75 (5 mil AAV.)

Year 1: He's our starter
Year 2: Hopefully someone emerges and he's our 1B at most.
Year 3: Probably retired and we eat the hit.

Edit: Who knows, maybe the new CBA will allow for something on that 3rd year?

They should go after Jonathan Bernier since he has asked to be traded.

When did he ask for a trade?  There's no news on that.  It was just speculated that they should trade him.

I really don't hold Bernier in that high regard tbh.

It's an infinitely better option than Luongo

It sounds ridiculous but I think I would rather see Burke sign Marty for 2 years and $8 mil per than fork out for Luongo. 

Better to blow $16 mil over two years than $50 mil and be stuck with it for 11 years.

that's not ridiculous, that makes great sense. The Leaf system only has prospects, so Marty would give a buffer to develop one of the young guys for prime time. Maybe Brodeur performs like Belfour did and wins some games.

He is old but he also just went to the cup finals so I'm ok to go with that as a barometer to say he still has it, for at least one more year.

Will this be like when people wrote off Rocky and then he was traded by Apollo's trainer and...where the hell am I  going with this.

I'd like to imagine how Gustavsson would of done with Brodeur as his mentor.  Not at all knowing the situation, but I get a feeling it's Alliare's way or the highway which didn't work for the Monster.

Here's Bergers perspective.  He emphasizes the stability that Brodeur would bring.

If Brodeur does test the market Burke should be all over him - who better to mentor Reimer and it keeps Scrivens away from the circus while he develops his chops. This might be the biggest no brainer out there.

Without a doubt.  Brodeur had a slow start last year and managed to pull it together well enough to carry his team all the way to the finals. If that isn't exactly what Reimer and pals need to have around, I don't know what is. Even if his numbers aren't as great as they once were, if that ability to pull your season out of the toilet isn't exactly what the Leafs need to have more of around then I don't know what is.
