I know your just kidding, but man i'm so sick of the "so called" fans who can't look 5 days ahead of a decision Gainey makes.
Some of you guys simply don't get that weather we had Huet or not our team was WAY too unexperienced to win the cup, now all of our kids have bagage for next next year, even players chipchura and Stewart who just practiced now have an idea of what NHL playoffs are all about. What was Gainey supose to do? Win 1, maybe 2 rounds with an average goalie who was goinmg to sign with another team the next summer or take a risk on the franchise goalie you got who was already playing better hockey at the end then your #1? The choice was freakin obvious, it's the same reason why gainey had the Hossa deal let go, we're simply not there, next we could be, ALOT of players will have a better year( A.Kost 30+ goals, Latendresse 20+ goals, Higgins( better play all around) S.Kost 50+ points, Price 30+ win). Next year will be the time to start thinking about having a real chance for the cup.
This thread has become a joke, people are trying to convince us again that Huet is god when after the end of january Price was already getting more starts then him, it's not 1 bad series againts a team who kept charging at him that lowers his potential.
Trading Huet was still an excellent move Gainey made. As i said before, that 2nd rounder will be a valuable asset next year when another impact player becomes available ( Marleau maybe?, Lecavalier?) who knows...
