Look at the job he did in NJ while Brodeur was out.
Hedberg did well when Brodeur was injured/playing badly, but that's what you want from your backup. Moose isn't a starter anymore, he's a backup IMO.

If you're asking who the top goalie prospect in the system is, it's Jacob Markstrom, who was the starter for most of the year in Rochester last season. Then next down the line would be Tyler Plante who was his backup and Sam Brittain, who was dominant in the NCAA as a freshman. Tallon has said Markstrom needs another 1/2 year in the AHL before he's ready, and that was before he had a major knee injury and surgery. So he'll spend next season in the AHL.
