I thought of this today when reading about Martin Brodeur, perhaps the best goalie of the modern era. Good advice:
Brodeur, 36, can eclipse Patrick Roy’s league record for career victories Tuesday at Prudential Center against Chicago, but he is never satisfied by the way he plays. He says he has a hybrid style that is still evolving, with techniques picked up from other goalies.
“Anything I think will be good for my game, I’ll steal from them,” Brodeur said. “It’s fair game.”
