Could Martin Brodeur be as great a general manager as he was a goaltender?

The Buffalo Sabres won’t get to find out for sure, as their attempt to speak with Brodeur about the team’s open GM position was rebuffed, John Shannon told WGR 550.

Brodeur currently serves as assistant GM of the St. Louis Blues, a position he’s held since May 2015. He moved into a management position with the club after finishing his playing days with the Blues during the 2014-15 season.

The search for the next GM in Buffalo has been a far-reaching effort, with reports indicating the Sabres have contacted Los Angeles Kings assistant GM Mike Futa, Columbus Blue Jackets assistant GM Bill Zito, as well as Jason Botterill and Bill Guerin of the Pittsburgh Penguins, among other potential candidates.

The Sabres fired GM Tim Murray on April 20.
