And then what happens when you are on the cusp of a Stanley Cup knowing you need a better goalie, but you are tied down to Huet on a long term deal?
You have basically shot yourself in the foot. In a cap world, the window of opportunity is small, real small. Foresight will count for a lot more than it used to.
But you know exactly what you're getting with Huet. What if Aebischer implodes yet again next year? How does it improve our team, isnt that why Bob Gainey traded Theodore? Consistency is a skill, Huet has it, Aebischer doesnt even know what it means. I'd rather go into the season knowing my goalie is set for a 2.40GAA 9.20 % then anything from bottom 5 stats to top 10 stats.
