Talk about a changing of the guard in New Jersey. First, there was no more Martin Brodeur. Now, there’s no more Lou Lamoriello.

Brodeur, who recently became an assistant GM in St. Louis, told NHL.com that he was “really surprised” when Lamoriello left the Devils to join the Maple Leafs as their new general manager.

“I had some conversations with [Lou] and I knew what was going on a bit, but it was still surprising to see all the changes going on there,” Brodeur said.

“It was the Maple Leafs pin on his suit that I found weird.”
