Brodeur Injury Could Affect Trenton

As I was sitting in the Prudential Center stands watching Martin Brodeur in obvious pain while trying to flex his left arm, two things went through my mind.

1) My fantasy team is screwed.

2) I wonder how this affects Trenton.

And yes, it was in that order. But in all seriousness, it’s the seriousness of Brodeur’s injury that will determine what will happen next.

If Brodeur is out for any extended period of time, Scott Clemmensen would likely be called up from Lowell, which would leave Dave Caruso starting there.

Here’s where it gets interesting, though. The whole reason that Jeff Frazee is in Trenton is to start. With Caruso not having played a lot in Lowell, perhaps Jason Smith is summoned to the AHL instead so that Frazee can continue to see consistent action. Or maybe not.

Either way, each scenario leaves Trenton with only one goaltender. As a goalie nut, I’d love to see someone like Maxime Ouellet come back to town. However, I’d imagine the team would go the emergency backup route. Hopefully Anthony Felice has his gear ready to go…

    Frazee is up with the big club already, practiced this AM and yes if it’s more than a day or two we’re screwed. Phantoms are still sitting on 3 goalie but Lou would never allow it, he’d rather keep his pride and watch us go down the drain instead of bringing a guy in that would be more than a ebug.

    Isn’t Joel Martin available? Maybe he could come back…
