It's just a couple of days since Martin Brodeur was thanked by Devils fans in what could have been his final game in New Jersey. So, of course he hasn't decided his future just yet, but he is thinking about returning to play in the NHL next year. But the legendary goaltender will be back to work soon: He told WFAN's "Joe & Evan" show that he's heading up north to do playoff analysis for "Hockey Night in Canada." Here's a roundup of what else he said on Tuesday: • On the reception he received Sunday night: "It was a pretty special night. [There was] a lot of press about me maybe playing my last game, but I didn't make my decision on anything yet. But just in case it was, they showed me great appreciation out there." • Did he play his last game in a Devils uniform? "I'm not sure. Hopefully...I'm leaning on coming back next year, so we'll look at some of the different opportunities, but definitely the Devils are still a team I'd like to play for if it's feasible. But we have to understand that we have Cory Schneider in New Jersey and he's going to need to play more games." • Was it an awkward situation this season with him and Schneider? "I don't think it was awkward, I think it was a difficult one for both me and Cory because we wanted to play more. And again, when you have two goalies that can play the game, it becomes some tough decisions that the coach has to make and you're never going to make everybody happy when everybody wants to play."
Martin Brodeur says he's 'leaning on coming back next year,' still would play for Devils 'if it's feasible'
