And I'm in no way calling out Hedberg for this loss, but the nonsense of him vs. Marty needs to stop. Never mind puck stopping abilities, the Devils are just not the same without Marty pushing the puck up the ice with his puck handling. He's not as solid at it is as he was ten years ago, but he still helps tremendously to reduce the pressure opposing teams put on the Devils in the offensive zone.
If anything those posters who want Moose to split time with Marty (You know who you are) can look at Moose's last 3 starts, and the stat watchers who bashed Marty last year can get a load of that. His overall save percentage has gotta be below 900 after these last two ****fests. The Isles game he didn't have a chance on much. These last two he didn't cost us the game, but he let in some stinkers that's for sure.

He's best suited as a backup. That's why he plays better when he's coming off the bench sporadically.Marty is conditioned to be a starter, and that's why he looks best when he plays more. And looks rusty when used sparingly. This speaks for itself. This is no opinion or theory I've made up.
