Catching Up With Marty Brodeur

Well since the news came out that all-time great Marty Brodeur is about 10% away from a full recovery, we thought we'd ship out to Jersey and visit the Rock, just to see how much progress he was really making.

We first caught up with him after a morning skate and private workout, he suggested we catch breakfast, we obliged. We hit up a local WafHo outside the Meadowlands, where Marty said "Dey Do it just right, eh" and had ourselves a filling breakfast. Marty had a 7 pound breakfast burrito, with a catsup and hot sauce smiley face.

After that we took a tour of the area, took 5 minutes before we were mugged, then went back to the hotel and cowered. We met up with Marty for lunch. We stopped by a local pizza place. They call this the Marty Personal Pan, we call it an extra large.

Through all this we were getting some information, said he still was experiencing some pain in his arm, but that's all part of the rehabilitation.

"It feels good, but it's tight," he said. "There's a lot of scar tissue that's built up through surgery. It's a matter of breaking everything down.

"I've just got to break it (the scar tissue) and eventually I'll wake up one day and feel no pain. But right now it's not 100%, that's for sure."

We went back to Marty's place, we sat and watched his absolutely gigantic TV while he sat on the can. The burrito finally caught up to him. It took an hour. Once he came back out and finally got comfortable, his wife brought out a snack. He calls it the USS Meatwad. We called it gross.

While snacking (feasting) on the Meatwad, we got to talking about Scott Clemmensen and his emergence during his injury. He had some very nice things to say about him.
"It's very nice for me," Brodeur said. "I don't feel pressure that if I don't come back we're not making the playoffs. I can take my time and make sure I'm 100% when I do get back."
We had to get moving, since the Rangers were playing at the Rock tonight, and he didn't want to show up late at his luxury suite, we left at 2. He likes to eat and watch warmups.

After Clemmensen blanked the Rags in another stellar effort (even though NY is struggling right now more than a baby with a ziploc bag) Brodeur lauded his teammate's efforts. We bid him adieu and asked when he thought he'd definitely be back.
"I'd like to be back tomorrow, but I don't have a date because I don't want to be disappointed if that date comes and I'm not ready"
So there you have it, from the horse's mouth (even though he sounds like a jilted prom date), Brodeur will be back soon, and fresh, for the playoff run, something he may not be used to, but can only aid these streaking Devils.

This team has always been Brodeur's, but if he could release some of that load on to Clemmensen, isn't that fair? (hehehe release the load, hehehe, Semin) Now the question is, and its being asked elsewhere, does Brodeur automatically resume his starting duties, or has Clemmensen earned a share of the tending duties (hehehe doodie)?
