NHL icon Martin Brodeur recently voiced his concerns in an interview, criticizing the treatment of today's goalies and their reduced workloads.

Brodeur, currently serving as the VP of hockey operations for the Devils, expressed disapproval of the special treatment given to many goaltenders, suggesting they should play more games like other players.

"I think we baby our goalies," the New Jersey Devils executive vice president of hockey operations told The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun on Tuesday. "I see it. I'm part of it. It's like, my goalie coach will say, 'He's played five games the past eight days ' I'm like, 'So?'"- Brodeur

Brodeur disapproves of the trend of having a 1A and 1B goalie system, advocating for starters to play 65-70 games per season. His stance is influenced by his own career, where he frequently played over 70 games in a season.
