2012 Stanley Cup Finals, Devils Vs. Kings: With Retirement In Sight, Martin Brodeur Soaking Everything In

Perhaps the greatest goaltender of all-time, Martin Brodeur helped lead the New Jersey Devils into the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals even at age 40.

During a press conference Tuesday at the Stanley Cup media day, Brodeur said he has spent more time soaking everything in this season because he's not sure how much longer his career will last.

"I really wanted to experience it. I don't know if it's going to be my last year or not, so I really wanted to embrace it all," Brodeur said, adding that despite still enjoying hockey, he'll make a retirement decision after the Cup. "That decision is going to be made by me and my family. We're going to take a lot of time to think about it."

Brodeur's counterpart in the Cup will be Jonathan Quick, the baby-faced 26-year-old who is 12-2 with a 1.54 goals-against average so far in the postseason.

"He's a really good goalie. He's played at a high level for a few years now in the NHL. What I like about him is that he's an athlete," said Brodeur. "The puck's not just going to hit him. He's going to go out and get it, and it's pretty spectacular to watch."
