During his farewell tour last season, Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera was showered with gifts from opposing major league teams.

In ceremonies across the country, Rivera received a bronzed broken bat and ball (Orioles), bullpen pitching rubber and stadium seat (Red Sox), cowboy hat and boots (Rangers), fire hose nozzle and call box (Mets), surfboard and wine (A’s), guitar signed by Willie Mays (Giants), fishing pole (Dodgers) and numerous paintings.

So far, no NHL team has offered to give Devils goalie Martin Brodeur a red goal light, bronzed blocker or an item from one of the historic old arenas in which he played.

As Brodeur is quick to point out, he hasn’t made up his mind whether this will be his last season and he isn’t interested in a farewell tour.

“Not really. One thing I hated was disturbing everything for my teammates when I was chasing records and stuff,” Brodeur told The Star-Ledger. “Hockey is a lot different than other sports, like baseball, which tends to do that. They’ve done it in hockeym but especially for a goalie concentration is so important.

“Concentration and preparation are probably more important for me now than ever before now that I’m getting older. So if I had to deal with those type of things over and over it would be tiring for no reason. And it would disturb what we’re here to do. That’s not me.”

At this point the only reminders Brodeur gets in each city about possibly playing his last game there come from the media and some opposing players. Not from opposing teams looking to recognize him.

“No. I’ve never had that conversation,” Brodeur said. “Some guys ask me for my sticks. They feel it’s probably one of the last times they’ll play against me. Nothing out of the ordinary. They’ve been asking me for the last three years.”

He laughed.

“Maybe I’ll play another year. You never know,” the 41-year-old goalie said.

That wouldn’t surprise many. Nights like Saturday night, in which he assisted on the Devils’ first goal and stopped 21 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers, are the reason why some feel he’ll play beyond this season.

“Hey, don’t count him out. Trust me. He can play another three or four years,” said teammate Jaromir Jagr, who has stated he’ll keep playing in the NHL as long as he’s wanted. “Dominik Hasek came back when he was 47. (Brodeur) can play however long he wants to play. It’s up to him. He still loves the game, so it’s up to him.”

Rest assured that the Devils will honor Brodeur at some point, although probably after he retires.

In any case, he is not playing this season like it is a farewell tour.

“Right now it doesn’t change the way I approach or feel about anything. I don’t feel like it’s going to be the last time I’ll be in certain places,” he said. “I’m enjoying playing the game and coming to the rink. A lot. So it’s not in my mind that I might not come back.

“Guys like us (Brodeur and Jagr) don’t play this long without having that fire about playing the game and thriving on trying to be the best all the time. That’s the only reason we’re able to play for so long.”

Jagr said he stills sees the fire and the love for the game in his teammate.

“He’s proven again this year he can play as long as he wants,” Jagr said. “If he decides to retire, it will be up to him. I don’t think anybody would force him to do it.

“You can see it during the practices that he loves the game. When you start hating practices it’s time to go, but he loves practice. I can see it. He enjoys catching my pucks for sure. I don’t really like it, but he’s always happy about it.”

In 17 appearances this season, Brodeur is 8-7-2 with a 2.29 goals-against average and .905 save percentage.
