That is the one problem relating to the butterfly style of goaltending--the stress it puts on the hips. I see a lot of ex goalies having hip replacements at a very young age do to this style.

Well, Khudobin did not show well for the Wild. It's not fair to judge him completely on this game but it doesn't give anybody any reason to trade away Backstrom or Theodore. The Wild are a frustrating bunch to cheer for - back in contention, then not in contention, a winning streak a losing streak - looks like a serious offensive threat could change the teams fortunes the most of any move.
