Someone on HF mentioned at one point that Khudobin is a UFA this offseason. I could easily see Hedberg retiring after the season he's had. Yes Khudobin just gave up 4 goals to us but in reality I don't think any of them were bad goals. He's got good stats overall and I like his style of play. I think he'd be a good option to backup Marty and maybe eventually platoon.

He's 26 years old, so it's not like he's super young and has tons of room to develop..but at this rate I'd take any fresh face over the two old men tandem we currently have.

Well the way I figure either Marty has another regular and playoff season in him or he doesn't. If he does, then Khudobin can play as a backup for the whole season. If it's clear he doesn't then they platoon them. If Khudobin does well he could be the future.

Khudobin was kind of lost in the Minnesota system for years behind Backstrom and Harding, but he was always good when he got in, even before this year.

He can say he feels good all he wants but I don't think in an 82 game season with even more age and wear on Marty that we want to wind up with him playing the backup role. Maybe it doesn't have to be Khudobin but we're going to have to find someone to take on that role who can potentially last beyond next year.

If Lou asked Moose to bow out gracefully after this year I think he'd do it. Johan has always first and foremost been a team player.

Yeah I'm not convinced Lou's buying out Moose.  Especially after he took our multi-year offer over other multi-year offers to relocate his family.  Besides, I can't believe they'd buy him out when they wouldn't even sit him one game.

My question is do you think Moose has any legitimate offers if he were UFA this offseason. I think at this point his career is pretty well over. The extra year he might be willing to forgo if Lou offered him a job as a scout or something of that variety.

Not sure he is the answer, but his quickness and athleticism are impressive. Still i'd be concerned about his size and vulnerability up high. He's only 5'10

Lou will let him play his final year out with dignity. But. If that's the case, unless lou after trades for a young developed goalie lou kinda would have to resign Marty for another year to back up our kid to help develop and train them. That's what I seem most apt honestly.

I don't see it. I feel like when I see our future starting goalie, ill know it.

I just don't get that feeling with this guy. I know we need SOMEONE new but look around Lou

I think he is more of a product of a good team right now.

I would be inclined to agree about the product of good team thing if he didn't have such consistently good numbers at every level he's played at.

I know I'm old fashioned, but I just don't think a 5'11" goalie is small. I guess guys like Terreri, Irbe, Hasek, and Sauve are a thing of the past, but he's taller than any of them.

Prob. Devils are going to give a shot to Kinkaid to backup Marty next season, depending on how he does they will or will not try to get someone in the summer 2014
