The St. Louis Blues hosted the official retirement announcement of legendary goalie Martin Brodeur Thursday, and although he only played seven games for the franchise – after spending the previous 1,259 regular-season games with the New Jersey Devils – the surefire first-ballot Hockey Hall-of-Famer used the occasion to reflect with the Blues on his staggeringly successful career and his decision to hang up his skates and pads for good at age 42.

Brodeur is moving into a role advising Blues management – at least, for this season, if not the years to come – and there will be all sorts of retrospectives on his impact on the league, the game and his position. But it's always great to get the legend's feelings in the immediate wake of such an important moment.
