Devils legend Martin Brodeur was recently interviewed saying that today's goalies are often babied and that he does not agree with modern workloads.

The current VP of hockey operations for the New Jersey Devils said that many goaltenders are often given this special treatment and get the easy way out because teams are scared of losing their goalies to injury. Brodeur disagrees with these new ways and believes goaltenders should be able to play the majority of a season just like the rest of the team.

"I think we baby our goalies," the New Jersey Devils executive vice president of hockey operations told The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun on Tuesday. "I see it. I'm part of it. It's like, my goalie coach will say, 'He's played five games the past eight days ' I'm like, 'So?'"- Brodeur

Brodeur went onto say he does not like the new systems of a 1A and 1B goalie, he believes a team should have 1 starter that should see at least 65-70 games per season.


This also comes from Brodeur who played in at least 70 games in 12 of his 22-season career.
