Would The Real Johan Hedberg Please Stand Up?

I fear that someone has recently abducted New Jersey Devils goalie Johan Hedberg and switched him with an impostor. Who would ever have predicted that Martin Brodeur would come back from an injury but not be able to get back into game action because Johan Hedberg is playing other-worldly? The Devils have won 8 straight, with Hedberg giving up 3 goals in his last 4 games. Marty B is one of the greatest goalies to ever play the game of hockey, and he is sitting on the bench watching Johan put up the greatest run of his career. Hedberg won't be winning the Vezina, neither will Jaques Lemaire win coach of the year, but what is happening right now in Jersey is pretty crazy and they have done it without Brodeur and Parise.

When all is said and done, New Jersey is unlikely to make the playoffs and are costing themselves draft status. I did pick up Hedberg on one of my fantasy teams last week, so I would encourage Jacques don't bench the Johan.
