For those who have been participating in this thread, the following article scheduled to appear in the print version of this Sunday's New York Times may be of interest to you:

"How Come Martin Brodeur Is Still So Good?"

February 21, 2013

The best hockey player in the New York area right now is also one of the greatest hockey players ever, and he’s a Methuselah, a 40-year-old in a sport where pro careers typically last five or six years. Martin Brodeur, now in his 20th season with the New Jersey Devils, has played so well for so long that even hockey people have tended to take him a little for granted. He’s hardly an unknown, but he would be more fussed over and wondered at if he didn’t play in Newark and if his position were not the lowly, unglamorous one of goalie.

“Playing goal is not fun,” Ken Dryden, the Hall of Fame goalie for the Montreal Canadiens, wrote in a memoir. “It is a grim, humorless position, largely uncreative, requiring little physical movement, giving little physical pleasure in return.” While his teammates zip around, the goalie lumbers, weighed down by his cumbrous equipment, and he spends the whole game by himself, down at one end of the rink, within easy earshot of heckling fans, in front of a red light that flashes on whenever he fails and lets a goal slip by. He has flurries of activity, but a lot of the time he just watches and worries. There’s very little he can do to win a game, and mostly he hopes only not to lose it.

"Islanders Reach Inevitable End with DiPietro and Waive Him"

And:

"DiPietro Timeline: A Promising Career Derailed by Injuries"

The Islanders waived the 31-year-old goaltender Rick DiPietro on Friday. DiPietro, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft, has struggled to live up to expectations in a career troubled by injuries. Below is a timeline of his career.
