Man no quotes about ''Throwing hits, blocking shots, or the toughness element in a big division game?''

He's a cancer when in lineup, period.
Yeah he has to go. It's not even like he's playing good defense. In fact he keeps declining every year, and this year he was even worse than last year. Last year I thought he was serviceable (Still way too overpaid though) this year he isn't at all. We'd fare just as well bringing back Colin White for league minimum. Hopefully Vanderbeek pulls the plug sooner rather than later. And Deboer is an idiot for insisting he be in the lineup yesterday.

As for Hedberg and the defense playing bad in front of him. The defense at even strength wasn't so much the problem when Moose was playing. Our penalty kill was however a big problem. It went from 8th to about 22nd in the league in a matter of about 2 weeks. I'm pretty sure in 4 or 5 games it went from being 13th to like 22nd. It started to go bad before Marty got injured, but it went out of control sometime during right before Moose coming in. Some of the goals were completely his fault, but the PK was so poor in some of those games there was nothing he can do. Also on the topic of the team playing poorly in front of him they were playing poor offense. They gave him 1.83 goals a game of support while Marty was out. To win those games he would have needed a GAA of under 1.83 which not many goalies in this league have.
