All Time Winningest Goaltender

 In proffesional hockey there are many skilled atheltes that make it to the NHL, but do not have the ability to take their skill to the next level.  This game has a lot of aspects to it, but what it all comes down to is hard work, skill, and the heart you have for the game.  Bringing all of these aspects to the team puts you at the peak of your level.  Martin Brodeur brings so much to his team and because of this he has never been traded, and has played all 15 of his years with the New Jersey Devils.  Martin displays so much leadership and commitment to his club, which has allowed him to become the best that he can be; winning the Stanley Cup three times.  In the video above it shows Martin winning his 552 game, making him the all time winningest goalie in the NHL.  As you can see, his teammates, fans, and opponents respect him by giving him a pat on the back and cheering him on.  Martin did not achieve this over night, it took him hard work and dedication to achieve everything that he as today.  He has became an inspiration for all aspiring hockey players, fans, and all his team mates and opponents.  He brings true class and passion to the game, and has not got caught up in the stardom that the game poses on you.  Martin knows that if you put your mind to it you are able to achieve anything no matter what.  His fellow players in the league should learn something from him and figure out that its not all about the money, but the love for the game. Martin is always a goaltender that I have great respect for and am proud to say that he is Canadian.
