Goaltending Solved?

Habs win Habs win…. Well with a 1 – 0 victory over the Boston Bruins the Habs move into a tie for eighth spot and alot of the credit has to go with the starting Halak. The rookie looked mature in net and was calm under pressure. The only problem with this is, he is still a rookie.

Yet again another problem is that rookie goalies are never really rookies because of the amount of time usually spent in the farm systems. So is Halak the real deal, the second coming of Patrick Roy or merely a viable option until the return of Huet. All I know for sure is as long as we keep having a solid group of goaltenders both on the big club as well as in the farm systems ( really 4 nhl level goalies this year Huet , Abby , Halak , Dannis) the team will be decent.

Carbs has to keep playing the kids and giving them ice. They are starting to show the older boys what its like to put an effort in and slowly the team is getting better.

PS Carbs keep playing the kids

Thoughts?

    i've always been someone who would stick up for abby, but lets face it, now that hes not on a powerful colorado team he friggin blows chunks. and ive only been concinved of this in the past couple of weeks. mind you the habs dont have the srongest team out there, but still, hes been letting in some pretty week goals, so until halak falters, (which it wouldnt surprise me if its in boston on thursday, or on saturday…just because the whole team is so inconsistent), abby wont be in the nets.

    and who is gonna sign him in the off season? l.a.? they like getting inconsistent goltenders ex. cloutier….

    do you think the strategy of riding inexperienced wunderkids until they collapse has been a worthwhile goalie strategy over the past 10 years?

    i vote for obtaining someone consistent and experienced.

    Consistency and experience only comes from playing. This is great experience for Halak, not only him, but for the rest of our young players. Next year Halak will back up Huet, and by mid-season we should see Carey Price.
