I think the tempting assumption regarding Moose is something along the lines of "Moose has played well in the few games he's seen, give him a ton more!"

We can't assume Moose would keep up his stellar play in consecutive games; he's a backup. He does a fantastic job at what backups do; he isn't necessarily built to start a ton of games like Marty is

marty was fine and far from the reason for the loss. that being said, "fine" will not get the devils very far in the playoffs. for the devils to get past the 2nd round and even into the finals, marty needs to be 02-03 playoff marty.

They tied the game in regulation. The OT was tie. The Shoot Out started with Kovy scoring first. You know the results Toronto 3 shots 3 goals vs Devils 3 shots 2 goals. Is it Elias to be blamed for the missing a point for missing a goal? Or is it the goalie you called "fine" and ""FAR" from the reason for the loss". Sorry no one else was in goal with the job of stopping the puck? Two scores on the glove side and one down low. Sorry I don't call that "fine" It was his plate, his food.

Marty's career save % in the shootouts is what, 75%?

Yeah, I'll give him a bad shootout once in a while. He's been damn near stellar in them. He got beat glove twice, which never happens..you could tell his was pissed at himself

..maybe our offense is to be blamed for not scoring 4 or 5 during the game. Or perhaps the defense should've help allow less than 18 shots. :rolleyes: Comical how everyone and everything gets the finger point, aside from Marty. *Newsflash; You're not any less a fan to acknowledge when your goalie had a bad game.. especially when he acquiesces the fact. "That was a tough game for me. It’s my job to try to get a big save somehow and try to win. We should've won that game."
Fact is Marty's won 4 out of his last 13. He absolutely needs to pick up his play, if we're to sustain any type of long run into the playoffs.

I understand the love our fanbase as for Brodeur. All-time great.. the franchise.. I get it. But he's got 26 wins in 53 played. Back on topic of this thread.. if Brodeur struggles at all come April, Hedberg will see playoff time.

..you could tell his was pissed at himself.


..and I admire that about him. It goes to show you that despite being 40, and having won everything possible there is to win, he still cares.

Hedberg doesnt even exist once the playoffs start unless Marty is historically bad or gets hurt. Its not even worth thinking about.

I personally think Hedberg may get a game if the series' go very long i.e. if the first round goes 7 and then its clear that the next round is going to be a slog as well, we may see Hedberg in a game 4 or 5 sort of situation if we have a series lead, but it really just boils down to how Marty is feeling. I dont see him voluntarily giving up a playoff start at all.

Toss up at this point...Brodeur will get the start because he's Brodeur, but I would feel slightly more confident with Hedberg in net. He's just quicker.

The Devils don't have the defense for Marty to appear like the 02-03 Marty

What's puzzling to me is that I thought the plan would be that Marty would start to take more time off as the playoffs neared. It looks to me like fatigue is already setting in.
Marty just doesn't have the stamina to go a seven game series and our defense isn't good enough to make up for Marty's fatigue issues.

Except if it was anyone but Marty, or he had stopped all the shootout attempts, we wouldnt have heard a peep from you. You have a very nice habit of disapearing when Marty does well.

Fair. I'd like to see DeBo rest him enough to get his strength up, but not enough to fvck with his timing. It's gonna be a tough balancing act.

Just alternate between the 2 for the rest of the stretch. If Marty's still struggling and Hedberg is still playing splendid start Moose. Otherwise start Marty, and if he has an awful game one and two then you have to go with Moose.

Myself, you, and gdhi make for a small faction on this board. I'm pretty sure Don is also a Seahawks fan if I'm not mistaken. Thrilled we got Matt Flynn; Packers backups tend to do well as starters once they get there.

Flynnsanity! I have reason for a lot of optimism though it is cautious. Like you said though, last time we got a Packers backup named Matt... Great things happened. Hass is still my favorite football player of all time.

But he's no longer the best (playing still)...even he knows that...they should split the remaining games and start whoever is playing better.

So when you're career back up falters, your legendary starter has no rythym. Marty is getting these starts for a reason.

And that reason is ????.... Because he's the best...I've loved the guy for years,but he's not the best anymore...so the legendary stuff go's out the window....play who's playing better at the time...not the fan favorite....you win sh!t with that.

The reason is to get him into a rythym. I just said that. If you put in a career backup who has NEVER been a starter into the playoffs and you fail, you bring in a cold Brodeur half way through a series.
