Frankly against the Flyers all we needed was a semi-solid goalie. Nothing too fancy and we would have fared better. So being conservative and not showy, Huet would have done THAT job, at least. The thing with Price was not that he was up to the task it was that he was HORRIBLE unfortunetly. He was making around ten mistakes per games, whether it was by not being "alert" enough or by causing turn-overs by going out of his crease. All we needed was someone half decent. And Price was too young maybe to even be half that.

Say what you will about Huet but in our series against Carolina for instance, sure he let in one decisive weak goal but he never made mistakes outside of that and he kept us in the game, the Habs were far more inspired in those games than in the Flyers series. That had this drive to keep going like all playoffs teams should be contrary to this year, because back then they had nothing to mess them up mentaly. They could get "in the zone" and just play hard. While this year with all the Price mistakes per games it was hard for the players to stay focused.
