I said it was a mistake right from the start.
We should have kept Huet and broke Price in slowly instead of rushing him into being the #1 goalie in Montreal. We could have used Huet as the #1 and gave Price 30 games a season until he started to get comfortable with the NHL speed and style of game. Then once he was comfortable, Price would start getting most of the playing time with Huet acting as his solid, veteran backup.
