Votes from Latvia have Sabres' Girgensons in front

Tuesday, 12.02.2014 / 5:22 PM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

Joe Yerdon - Correspondent

BUFFALO -- If you've noticed Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons at the top of the voting for the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game, it's no mistake.

The Sabres forward is the leading vote-getter for the All-Star Game in Columbus. He's tied for the Sabres lead in goals with Tyler Ennis (7) and is second in points (13). But that's probably not why he's piled up so many votes (399,356 as of Tuesday). A lot of the support is coming from his home country.

"He's a very popular man over in Latvia," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said Monday. "I think from the Sochi Olympics he got his name out there a little bit more. Playing the way he's playing here in Buffalo the first couple years, he's getting his name out, so hopefully he's going to be a household name here in North America the way he is in Latvia. And good for him, he deserves everything he's getting."

Louie Korac - Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- Martin Brodeur said he had no intention of retiring, even if it meant sitting out the entire 2014-15 season.

The 42-year-old, who had spent his entire 21-season career with the New Jersey Devils and holds nearly all NHL goaltending records, will resume his career with the St. Louis Blues after agreeing Tuesday to a one-year contract worth a pro-rated base pay of $700,000.

The contract includes playing bonuses, among them $10,000 for every point the Blues earn with Brodeur in goal as well as undisclosed roster bonuses if he's on an NHL roster Feb. 1 and March 1 as well as playoff bonuses, according to Blues general manager Doug Armstrong. According to's Pierre LeBrun, those roster bonuses are $125,000 for each month.

"Let's say [Brodeur] was to win 50 games. It's a pretty good million dollars spent," Armstrong said about Brodeur's bonus for points earned per game. "... It was an easy decision for us when [Brodeur] told us can compete at this level."

Brodeur said he doesn't have a no-trade clause in his contract.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
