Martin Brodeur has already said that he will play next season in the final year of his contract, but he hasn't said that he's done once that year is over.
"Not at all," he said Monday. "It's the last year on my contract and that's about it. This year, even though we didn't make the playoffs, I had a great time playing the game. I really had a good time competing at the level I wanted to compete (at) and if it stays like that and I'm still having fun, who knows that's going to happen? I'm not putting a decision in my mind." Brodeur, who will turn 41 years of age one week from today, posted a 13-9-7 record with a 2.22 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage. He even said that he's not opposed to eventually splitting starts with a younger goaltender when the time comes.
