ESPN: Martin Brodeur is still looking for a team to play for. They have been rumors he could sign with the Montreal Canadiens.
“We knew all along we would have to be patient,” Brodeur’s agent, Pat Brisson of CAA Sports, told ESPN.com on Thursday. “Marty is prepared to wait this out, knowing that at some point a team may very well develop a need. Marty is in a good place. It’s not like he’s phoning me every 10 minutes. He’s going to be patient.”
