Including Shane Doan, three of the league's eight longest-tenured veterans became free agents this month: Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, 40, re-upped with New Jersey (for whom he's played for 19 seasons) through 2013--14; Red Wings forward Tomas Holmstrom (15 seasons), 39, still hasn't made a decision, though he says if he doesn't play for Detroit, he'll retire. Next summer, three more from the group of eight are due to enter free agency, including two of the top scorers in recent NHL history.
