Show Hedberg some respect.
Lou knew about Marty's back problem and covered it up as day to day. Lou did nothing but put Hedberg in this position of playing every day. Lou doesn't want his rookie goalie to have the pressure of starting a game that is important for fear of fan abuse of the future goalie.
Hedberg was signed and paid as a backup goalie but because of the tight schedule and Marty's back, he is playing almost every day. He is tired, he is 39 years old and was cheap for the Devils. The defense has played poorly in front of him and he can't control that, ask Stevens about the poor defense. The offense can't score goals neither can Hedberg, get on their arse not his
Where is Hedberg's buddy Marty defending him in the press, no where to be read but Marty loves the "We need Marty position."
We went to the playoff last season because of Hedberg, so show him the respect.
The problems this Devils team have are all on Lou, not Hedberg. Is Kovy's back sore? Why is Kovy being double shifted? What has Kovy done while being double shifted? NOTHING. Where are the replacement goals from those players that left? We have Devils players playing that don't belong in the NHL but Lou is cheap. Poni is a bust. Butler is a waste. Gionta is a joke. The biggest joke of all is Janssen.
Be fair to Hedberg!!! Be objective and give him a break and thank him for abusing his body for the Devils team.
I hope we win because everyone else on the team does their job including the coaches.
