Hedberg waived. Will be bought out presumably.

My daughter is bummed.

 

So is my sister. All she does at Devils games is oogle at Clarkson. Why I have no clue with his giant head and big bug eyes. Haha.

The Moose seemed like a great guy, too bad. It was a smart move, but it sucks for him.

He's streaky and old.   The only justification for keeping him around (before the trade) would be that they were too scared of the AHL goalies.   And even then, the logical retort would be "sign someone, anyone else."

He did us well leading up to the lockout, shame to see this happen but with 2 40+ year olds in net, it was inevitable.

 

best of luck to him in the future, a front office job with the Devils definitely would not hurt.

Moose battled the best he could for us the past few seasons. Last year might have been ugly and it was time to move on, but his efforts should not go unappreciated

..lots of rumblings that say Johan to the Flyers.

I'd be happy for Hed if that were the case. NHL level position, that's close to the area.

I don't think anyone dislikes Moose in the slightest...he's regarded as a class act across the board, and a hard worker.  First two years here were terrific.  But it was obvious to everyone that the Devils couldn't possibly go into next season with that same tandem, which was going to be even older than it already was.  Sucks for Hedberg in that I'm sure he would've loved the chance for redemption, but Lou did everything he had to to improve what was looking like a major question mark heading into 2013-14.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I feel bad for him. He wanted to stay only if he had a 2 year contract to move his family here. And then he only gets 1 :(

I'm going to miss moose. He didn't have a good year but I remember him making some great saves and playing really well for 90% of several games then just giving up some really bad uncharacteristic goals. It made matters worse considering NJ's offense rarely showed up last season as well.
