Cristobal Huet vs David Aebischer
 
I was just reading an article written by Brian Rosenbaum from Rotoworld.com. He was giving his thoughts on the upcoming goaltending battles in the league. Here is what he had to say about Montreal.


Conventional Wisdom: If money talks, Huet will start the season as the Habs’ number one, as he will out-earn Aebischer by about $900,000 in 2006-07.

Rotoworld Predicts: Huet will struggle out of the gate and Aebsicher will re-establish himself as a starter.


What do you think? My opinion is Huet keeps top spot and Aebsicher takes over during his slumps...

Most people forget that Huet was decent in LA and great in Montreal...

Worst case scenario with Huet: he's having a decent season and split half and half with Aebi

Best case scenario with Huet: He's for real and he's having a great year...top 5 goaltender...

After all, he never had a bad season...

Its nice to know that the only way we are screwed in nets this year is if TWO goalies who have been at least adequate starters BOTH fail us. As long as one of them has a decent season, goaltending won't be an issue.

We still have Danis after that though

Roll the dices. His guess is as good as yours. Personnally I don't doubt him

Have not seen Huet falter at all since joining the team mid-season, all throughout the playoffs.

He has been rock steady, and compsed, so I'm fairly confident he'll continue his play from last year. Maybe not quite as steller, but top 10 in the league for sure.

He's barely good enough to be a backup.

I think it's kind of early to pass such a judgement. He played what 5 games in the NHL? And got a shutout... :dunno:

Who talked about a #1? I thought we were talking about Danis as a backup

Rollie will work on Aebs' positioning... If it works.. then there is no question, Aebi will clearly steal the starter job. If it doesn't, then Aebi is still the best backup in the league.

What the hell are with these stats?

Some aren't from the NHL.

If you want my opinion, i'd say that those guys are playing for the same team, they are paid to stop pucks and there's 82 games to a season. Therefore, it shouldn't Christo vs. Aebi but.. Christobal Huet + David Aebischer, which represents great goaltending for the Montreal Canadiens! Probably the best duo in the last 10 years.

Pascal 08-14-2006 09:36 AM

They could be a great duo but the problems are this:

- Aebi doesn';t want to be a backup
- We're spending a lot of money on him for a backup

I think Gainey is gonna wait and see if Huet is in the same shape as last year, and if he is he'll ship Aebi to another team for either a pick or package him up with someone else for an upgrade in our top 10.

Bah, He's paid 1.9M$ to stop a ****in puck so he should stop crying that he doesn't want to be a backup. Otherwise if he wasn't in hockey there's realistic chances that he wouldn't be a millionaire.

As far as I'm concerned, they are both great goalies. Either one of them could be our starter, I just think it is great that we are strong at a position that has been weak since the departure of Roy, with the exception of Hackett. Huet earned his salary, he earned the spot as the starter and until he really plays terrible then he deserves to keep it.
On the other hand, Aebischer is a great goalie too that just happened to get caught up in the whole "Huet is god" ordeal and now has to settle as being the backup. I don't think he should be treated that way though, he should get his starts just as much as Huet. Gotta keep them both happy, or as happy as you can keep them anyways.
I think this is great for the Habs, look back to when Ottawa went with Tugnutt and Rhodes. They split the games for the most part and they both had winning seasons doing so. They had a healthy rivalry and it brought out the best in both of them.

GO HABS GO.

ok, I may be a little biased but I thought the theodore hackett duo was very good. Its the only thing we had going in the organization in the late 90's to the early 2000's.

Although, this duo does have the ability to be better... especially since this squad is much better at all positions than the theodore/hackett era.

That says it all right there. Theodore and Hackett was ok....except for the part where Theo played!!!!

Sthabs 08-15-2006 12:09 AM

Cristobal and David are 2 friends that will back each other up.
I remember bob sayin last year that he wasnt paying attention to the comments that were said a day or 2 after the last game because they were still too high on emotions...I really dont expect Aebi to be traded unless it s for a big one
Considering his performance first from last year, Cristo is a lil higher, and he definately deserves the spot
However who will have the spot will be decided on the ice
1.9 is a lil expensive for a number 2 but is it for a 2nd number one?
Or what would you prefer ? Huet and a number 2 making probably around even a million less, and being worried if Huet s tired, or even maybe in deep **** if he sux and we we don t have Aebi anymore?
And trading a capable number 1 goalie for a draft pick now is totally ridiculous
At least start the season and wait until his value raise
We ll have two number 1 goalies and some teams are gonna need him...
Otherwise well we will still get a pick for him....
(remember last year ?)
