Martin Brodeur is used to stopping shots.

Now he's taking some shots of his own ... directed at the NHL.

Brodeur, frustrated at the NHL lockout, lashed out in an interview in the New York Post yesterday.

"The league is almost treating us like kids," the New Jersey Devils star goaltender told the Post. "It's like they're saying, 'We made an offer, now go and think about it.'

'IT'S NOT FAIR'

"It's really disappointing that it's in a 'reflection period.' It's not fair that they don't try harder. We, as players, made a good effort with the concessions we gave.

"If (the sides) started talking, something might happen."

Oh, and it didn't stop there. Brodeur went on to say he doesn't expect to play an NHL game anytime soon.

"There's a big (youth) tournament in Lake Placid in March that my boys are probably going to play in," he told the Post. "I'm planning on going there, and my family can come down from Montreal. You can see that I don't think there's going to be a season."

Brodeur told the Post that the NHL's plans for a salary cap wouldn't work.

"Having those restrictions in football and basketball, the coaches there mean more than the players do, and I don't think the fans go to watch coaches," Brodeur said.
