Is Huet expendable ???

With the emergence of Carey Price and the lack of quality goaltending on the free agent market, Mr. Gainey should entertain offers on Huet.
The only real quality goalie out there is Fernandez and he isin’t evan a UFA. There are also many teams that need help, and with the price of a quality tender going up, I think Huet’s contract is very reasonable.

     No, not this year.

    Next year, probably.

  3. mtl_prince says:

    trade deadline this year, if price is playing, or if halak is playing above average

  4. Glucker says:

    nope, Price needs to prove he can play a full season in AHL(he hasn't played more then 2 games in the season) and Halak could've just come in hot, like Aubin 2 years ago, and Dubie this year… both need to prove they can stick it out for 40 games each b4 Huet is moved

  5. Milohabs says:

    Gainey is too conservative to take such a gamble. Huet has been solid for the Habs, and to start the year with 2 unproven goalies could be a disaster.
    Huet will be here for a little while longer still (which is good)

    Played more than two games?  Price carried them to the Calder cup and was named the MVP.

    Cary Price has yet to emerge as an NHL player.

      You or anybody never been so right, Gaigney must be the most conservative GM in the league but wasn't when with Dallas, i think that this must be a Montreal THING cause many GM before BIG BOB had the same problem ,IF you can call it a "Problem"?

    Getting rid of huet right now would be very HUGE gamble I would rather see Koivu get traded in a package, he only seems to play hard when you think they will trade him.

  10. passionch says:

    Haha, let's start Koivu trade talks to get him fired up again!

    He is talking about the regular season that thing that lets you make the playoffs.

    ok this is how it's gonna go down. Halak and Price are gonna battle it out with Huet to see who will emerge as the #1. Huet, to this point, is very expendable but no team in their right mind will take Huet because for a 2 million dollar goalie, he sure has a habit of only winning 19 games. Whoever is gonna be back up or starter, whether its Huet-Halak, Halak-Price or Price-Huet, the season is gonna be split among the goalies. Truth is, Montreal isn't going to have a true #1 goalie unless one of these 3 gets incredibly hot and reels off 9 wins in 10-11 games. I believe that Halak and Price will emerge as the 2 go-to guys between the pipes and Huet will be gone either at the trade deadline or when he walks come next July.

    Ya that thing thing that lets you make the play-offs means nothing if you can't preform in the play-offs.  So when Price plays well enough play-offs to win the Calder cup he suddenly needs more regular season play?  Last time I checked the play-offs were a more difficult time of year.  Especially when one goes from playing the regular season with Junior aged and caliber players to playing at the most difficult time of the year with AHL and higher.
