At the end of last season, I made a thread suggesting getting Kolzig, for his connection to Price and to have a solid veteran presence to support him, one who unlike Huet, has already made his millions and wouldn't mind being the support guy for Price. Most didn't agree.

Now as for Halak, I wish it could've been different for him and for us, but that's life, you can't have two such young goalies handling the most important spot on the team, and Halak doesn't seem ready, and if its better playing time he needs, we can't afford to give him that. Price is the top priority, and is also a good notch over Halak in terms of talent and has shown great progress and despite his young age, is dominating and our most important player. We really need that solid veteran presence to back him up.
