According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, Brodeurs agent Pat Brisson has spoken to six teams so far regarding the veteran goaltender.

Anthony Rendon Jersey . JOHNS, N.World No 1 Novak Djokovic insists the calendar Grand Slam is achievable after he captured his first French Open at the 12th time of asking on Sunday. His 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-4 success over Andy Murray allowed him to claim his 12th major title and join Don Budge, in 1938, and Rod Laver, in 1962 and 1969, as the only players to simultaneously possess the French Open, Australian Open, US Open and Wimbledon trophies.He will now attempt to become only the third man to sweep a calendar Grand Slam and the first since Laver in 1969, with victory at the All England Club his next achievable target before the final major of the year at Flushing Meadows in New York. Novak is truly astonishing Novak Djokovic is in unstoppable form after French Open win over Andy Murray Well, I dont want to sound arrogant, but I really think everything is achievable in life, said the Serb.You know, winning this trophy today gave me so much happiness and fulfilment. Im trying to grasp and Im trying to cherish, obviously, these moments right now. Whether or not I can reach a calendar slam, thats still a possibility. Djokovic celebrates with the ball boys and girls following his first Roland Garros title The last player to even have the chance of a calendar Grand Slam at this stage of the season was Americas Jim Courier, who won the Australian Open and French Open back-to-back in 1992.But he failed while even the likes of Djokovics biggest contemporary rivals, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal have never yet even held all four majors at the same time, even though they have completed career Grand Slams. Djokovics 12 majors - six in Australia, three at Wimbledon, two at the US Open and now one in Paris - have taken him to within five of Federers record of 17, while he is just two off the 14 held by Nadal and Pete Sampras.Its incredibly flattering to know that Rod Laver is the last one that managed to do it (the calendar Slam). Its one of the ultimate challenges that you have as a tennis player, added Djokovic, who endured a nervous conclusion to Sundays final. Djokoviic relaxes with the La Coupe des Mousquetaires in the locker room Djokovic won the first of his majors at the Australian Open in 2008 but had to wait another three years before claiming his second.ddddddddddddIn that time, Federer and Nadal carved up 10 of the 11 Slams between them. At the beginning, I was not glad to be part of their era. Later on, I realised that in life, everything happens for a reason, he said. Djokovic wins French Open Novak Djokovic beats Andy Murray to win French Open for first time Youre put in this position with a purpose, a purpose to learn and to grow and to evolve. Fortunately for me I realised that I need to get stronger and that I need to accept the fact that Im competing with these two tremendous champions. Gustavo Kuerten feels Djokovic is still improving as a player Meanwhile, Roland Garros favourite Gustavo Kuerten claims that what Djokovic has been achieving on the court was scary and believes he is still improving.Hes getting even close to Roger (Federer), said Kuerten. In a year or two, were gonna see him with a real chance of getting the number of slams (that Federer has) and he is able to get better every single year.
