Devils' fans have dreaded these days for a long time now.
Thoughts are swirling and rumors are flying about New Jersey's long time All-Star goaltender Martin Brodeur and his future with the organization. There are, of course, no reports stating that he will retire after this season, but the feeling amongst fans is that Brodeur's time is running short in the NHL.
After all, the man is playing his 19th season in the league. Most players don't get past 10 seasons.
While the hope for Devils' fans is that the end of Brodeur's career will be smooth and painless, the question still remains: What does New Jersey do after Marty?
Many fans think that New Jersey is ill prepared for this day to come, but the truth is that they have been drafting young goaltenders in anticipation of Brodeur's retirement for years.
Be that as it may, not many people know about the Devils' prospects and whether or not they will be the solution to the problem in the long run.
Here is a look at the top four prospects in goal for the New Jersey Devils.
