I'm sorry but 4 goals in a period and a half to the Thrashers and 5 goals to the Caps is some pretty bad performances by Marty. Tonight is just a continuation.
Hedberg needs to be played against the Leafs and Rangers.
Pretty bad performances? So the teams awful play against the Caps and Atlanta means nothing? They were so bad in those games.
Look, the Devils were dreadful in tonight's first period but they brought it for the rest of the game and were let down by the goaltending. It's pretty safe to say that, but it's a two way street. The Devils were especially awful in Atlanta. They played like sh!t that game even when Hedberg took over.
I have no problem with Hedberg getting some action tbh. What you watched tonight with Marty is not so much a loss of skill as it is a loss of confidence. He was fighting the puck even on routine dumps along the boards. You either let him play out of it or have him take a seat. Playing through it is not a big deal when the team is playing well and scoring. Obviously they don't have that luxury right now.
