The Huetites need to give it up

Huet was not re-signing with Montreal. From his perspective the best thing for him was to be traded

Would Huet be doing better now? Nobody can tell. But wasn't the big knock on Huet the long shots going in? So exactly how are we ahead on that aspect

I loved what Huet did for the Habs. He's a great person. But we need to move forward

After watching lately I have a theory by the way. The Habs are a shot blocking team and the first impulse for Habs players is to get in the way of the shot. NOTE: A lot of times this works great for us. However: Is it possible that Habs goalies (whether it is Huet or Price or Halak) are going to get screened more often than other goalies.

It just occurred to me recently when I saw how many shots were blocked. But there are also missed blocks tracked. I wonder how we do on that aspect. A missed block is a screened shot and often gets deflected
