New Vezina Leader

Possibly the hottest player in the past little while has been martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils. He has only lost one time in his last eleven games, dating back into December. During that time, he has posted four shutouts and has never allowed more than three goals in a game. Because of that hot streak, Brodeur now leads NHL goalies in GAA, saves percentage, wins, saves and is tied for the games played lead with Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks. Given all of that, he is clearly the Vezina leader as best goalie so far this season, passing Cristobal Huet of the Montreal Canadiens. Brodeur is making a strong case for MVP, though I still support Chris Pronger of the Anaheim Ducks despite his injury. I think I will likely have to find a new MVP candidate and Brodeur, Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings and Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins are leading candidates.
