Devils star bemoans lack of talk

By wire services
Published October 25, 2004

Add Martin Brodeur's name to the list of players unhappy with commissioner Gary Bettman and the owners.

According to the New York Post , the Devils goaltender is not expecting to play in the near future. But the lack of negotiation on the league's part has him more disappointed.

"The league is almost treating us like kids. It's like they're saying, "We made an offer. Now go and think about it,"' Brodeur said. "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."

Brodeur said the feeling is different among the players compared to the last work stoppage, also a lockout, in 1994.

"It's funny," Brodeur said. "We've started skating together, five or six of us here in New Jersey. In '94, there were tons of guys here. But this time, there's nobody here.

"Back then, nobody knew what was going to happen. But now, it's like nobody expects this to end soon."
