Potential Goaltending Controversy?

Now that Mr. Aebischer is stepping up and starting more often than Cristobal, who will be our playoff goaltender?
Is it possible David Aebischer can rise to the occasion to steal away Huet’s job as #1 goalie come playoff time? Cristobal Huet better step it up!

David Aebischer has not been bad at all this season, but lately, he seems as though he can take over the number one job. Don’t get me wrong, I am a Huet fan and I do believe that if the playoffs started now, Cristobal would get the job. The concern is that if Aebischer keeps up this “role” that he is on now, a controversy will potentially occur.

Huet’s save percentage is decreasing heavily while his goals against average is increasing. He also is in a losing slump. Aebischer has pretty good numbers to boast of late.

Come on, Cristobal! We believe in you.

    Well, with the Sabers, Sharks, and Preds showing that having 2 solid goalies is a good thing, I'm not sure this is a controversy at all.

    In fact, I don't think there's a better situation to have.  Remember the hurricanes last year?  Gerber did great all year, came into the playoffs and stumbled.  Because they had 2 solid goalies, they switched it up, and it not only helped in goal, but helped spark the whole team.

    My suggestion to Habs fans: Enjoy the "Controversy"

    what controversy, abby has outplayed huet big time, quite frankly gainey should check out how much trade value huet has, he would get alot more for him than abby considering he still has another year on his contract. abby is also 3 years younger i would offer huet to either florida or phoenix where u would get belfour or joseph in  return as a capable back up and also get roberts, bertuzzi or nathan horton from florida or doan or nagy from phoenix
