Overview

The autobiography of hockey s mostcelebrated goalie

Martin Brodeur is one of the most successful and decorated goalies in the National Hockey League and in international hockey, and among the greatest goalies of the modern era. Every time he steps on the ice as the goaltender of the New Jersey Devils, he either sets a new record or edges ever closer to some of the most prestigious netminding records in the history of the sport.

A three-time Stanley cup champion, he is the only goalie in NHL history with 10 seasons of 30 wins or more, and in 2006 he set a new mark for consecutive playoff starts by an NHL goalie.

The numbers speak for themselves, but what they cannot express is that Martin Brodeur is at the very heart and soul of the Devils, and one of the team's greatest leaders. And when Canada finally ended a 50-year gold medal drought at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, it was Brodeur who stood tall in the crease.

In Brodeur: Beyond the Crease, the game's best netminder takes a candid, personal look at his career, his sport and his journey to the apex of the modern game, including updates from the 2006/2007 season.

Editorial Reviews

If New Jersey Devils netminder Martin Brodeur stays on track, he will break every major National Hockey League career goaltending record. In Brodeur Beyond the Crease, this proud Quebecer describes his rise from kid league hockey player to Stanley Cup hero. He also offers his candid opinions on the business of hockey; the effect of salary caps and the labor lockout; hockey's five greatest goalies; and what it feels like to negotiate an NHL contract without an agent.

Beyond the Crease is most definitely an amazing book that highlights the life of all-star goaltender Martin Brodeur. Unlike most biographies that like to talk about all the good times, this book talks about the failures Marty faced throughout his career. From the good old days of playing street hockey with all his brothers, to the Olympics in Japan and Italy, this book highlights every major milestone in this extraordinary ice hockey player¿s career. Other notables are Brodeur getting to wear the ¿C¿ (Captain) on the World Stars Team and winning an Olympic Medal just like his father before him. Achievements that were acknowledged were his Vezina Trophy case and 3 Stanley Cup Rings over the past 8 years.

A great book by the best NHL Goaltender in the league. Every hockey fan should read Brodeur. The book covers career highlights, childhood, personal life, the Devils franchise and the season lockout. A lot of fun to read.

Even though I'm a diehard Devils fan, I can't help but be slightly disappointed in our fearless goaltender's book. I was happy that he addressed (somewhat) his divorce, and unhappy in that I felt he did not address it enough. Also, I couldn't help but feel that the voice of the book had an air of superiority to it. There seemed to be an arrogance that most fans know that Marty has, but for some reason that I can't quite understand how the translation of that arrogance to the written voice irked me, but it did. The book is certainly interesting, but definitely not a benchmark donation to the sports bio community. I still love Marty and I still love my Devils, but I'm just not sure how the fans will react.
