OK, back on track

I was thinking of taking another offensive guy, and I usually prefer old-timers, but I cannot argue with this guys production in the relatively short time he's been on the ice.

Those Cheap Bastards select:

Martin Brodeur, G, New Jersey Devils. He's just in his 14th year, and most of these HOF goalies were able to play anywhere between 18-22 years. I think he's going to move up most of these lists by the time he retires and will definetly be in the conversation for greatest goaltender of all time.

--4th all time in wins, 446. Will pass Sawchuck in wins with 2 wins this season.
--9th all time GAA, 2.21. However, his 813 games at least doubles the eight other goalies ahead of him on this list.
--7th all time in shutouts. With 5 more shut outs he will move to 3rd on the all time list.
--3rd all time in playoff wins. Will become 2nd with 4 playoff wins.
--2nd all time in playoff shutouts. Will become 1st all time with 2 more playoff shutouts.

--NHL All-Rookie Team - 1994
--Calder Memorial Trophy - 1994
--William M. Jennings Trophy - 1997-(shared with Mike Dunham), 1998, 2003 (tied), 2004
--Vezina Trophy - 2003, 2004
--Stanley Cup - 1995, 2000, 2003
--NHL 1st All-Star Team - 2003, 2004
--NHL 2nd All-Star Team - 1997, 1998, 2006
--NHL All-Star Game - 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004
