Martin Brodeur is pleased that the players have remained on the same page as the lockout drags on.
"It's pretty impressive how the younger players have been staying together," Brodeur said. "We saw our union break in December last time, giving up that 24 percent rollback when we weren't even asked to. A lot of things players did in 2004, I don't see this trend with us now. We feel a lot stronger together. Whether you're a superstar or not, guys are involved and committed to make this right for the players." The Devils netminder did splash a sad dose of reality, though, saying Canadian markets will have no trouble bouncing back: "But I guarantee you, New Jersey and other places will feel it, big time."
