And for those who enjoyed the "Halak played against weaker opposition" discussions, that was much more the case when Price's starts were scheduled that season, if I remember correctly. I'm sure I could work up the motivation to get those numbers for you after the soccer game.
Obviously, though, they liked what they saw... and why not.
edit: Okay, save percentage didn't take that long. Price had 0.910 at the time (c.f. Huet's 0.916). GAA is gonna be dicier, as fractions of minutes->fractions of games->true/exact GAA is going to be annoying.
edit 2: Okay, I get 1446.9 mins played (24.115 games), and 68 GA, which gives Price a GAA of 2.82 at the time (c.f. Huet's 2.55).
edit 3: Halak's was much easier, lol. Over a whopping 39.983 minutes, he posted a "GAA" of 1.50, and a "SV%" of 0.947.
His 2008 stats ended up being much better so I guess he must have hit stride after the trade .920 2.56. He didnt steal right out of Huet hands, but he didnt drop the ball afterwards. You could really argue that point either way and pretty much be right.
