We need Marty's puck handling abilities back. That's one intangible Moose cannot give us. It helps out the defense tremendously.

 

Also no ridiculous hopeless flopping in shootouts

I know Hedberg looks awful in the shootout, but he's strangely one of the most successful goalies in them.  Maybe his awful technique is such a surprise that shooters choke. :lol:

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Msweet had the numbness part, Chico had the pinched nerve part.

From what I remember Chico said it was like a rotator cuff or something, of all the things to go to Chico for, medical advice would probably be the last

Am I understanding you correctly?  Are you saying that a pinched nerve and rotator cuff injuries cannot be concurrent?  The rotator cuff has nerves and tendons. One can pinch a nerve in a rotator cuff.  Chico wasn't off base.  He was stating the area of the injury.

I might be in the minority, but I thought Hedberg's puck handling was excellent in the last 12 games minus one bad clearing attempt. He made all the right plays and the ones I wish Marty made. Brodeur might be a better stick handler but that doesn't mean he's a good decision maker. As much good as he brings with some nice passes out of the zone, he makes a lot of bad plays where he neglects his first outlet trying to get to a winger at the boards. And that pass usually never gets there. 

 

Hedberg got to a lot of pucks and easily made the smart play.

Then I am very confused, I'm hearing now there's arm soreness/numbness but I could have sworn that on the onset of the injury it was called a tight back or something

Moose sh!t has a save % of like .880 since he became the starter, that's pretty much average...in 1986

The D has not been so great either... Bad goaltending (for the most part) and sloppy D isn't going to help our situation along with the trouble going on not being able to score goals.

Sounds like Marty will start on Thursday. I hope he gives the team the lift they need to overcome this dominating the game and getting jack for it funk.
