Could New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur be wearing another team's sweater this spring?

If the Devils continue their losing ways, it's a definite possibility. Brodeur told the New Jersey Star-Ledger he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause under certain circumstances. 

"I hope it will never happen, but if there is a situation that could be really fun for me and really good for the Devils, why not?" Brodeur said. "It's not like I'm going to play 25 more years here."

The Devils, off to a 3-7-4 start to the 2013-14 season, are currently tied for sixth in the Metropolitan Division. Brodeur's contract is up at season's end and former Vancouver Canuck Corey Schneider is clearly the team's No. 1 stopper moving forward. 

"I would say 99% I'd say no right now," added Brodeur, 41, who has played his entire NHL career in a Devils uniform. "But for a little bit of time (at the end of the season)? Nobody is going to remember it, really. 

"It wouldn't be that big of a deal."

As for the club's other 41-year-old future Hall of Famer, forward Jaromir Jagr, there's less strings attached. 

"I don't have a no-trade clause so (Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello) can do anything he wants. I'm just a soldier," Jagr said. "They can trade me anytime they want."
