Blackhawks Rumors: Chicago Reportedly Interested In Martin Brodeur

If there was one noticeable difference between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Phoenix Coyotes, the team that defeated them in the first round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs, it was goaltending. Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford didn't have a bad series by most measures, but in a series where five of six games went to overtime, Phoenix goalie Mike Smith was a steady backbone for his team while Crawford let in a few notable soft goals.

The Blackhawks would likely be okay heading into the season with Crawford as their number one option, but it's also not unexpected to hear that they are interested in free agent goalie Martin Brodeur.

Brodeur, who has spent his entire career with the New Jersey Devils, will be an unrestricted free agent. Crawford, meanwhile, is signed through the next two seasons.
