The case to go with Aebischer as the starter

First of all, letting Huet walk is a ridiculously bad idea. He goes away, we're left with Aebischer at $1.9 million or more for one year. That puts us in a lose-lose situation, either:
(a) Aebischer proves he's not that good, and we've wasted a high quality asset (shoulda kept Huet and moved Aeby for at least a decent pick) and have horrible goaltending
(b) Aebischer plays great, becomes a UFA at the end of the season, asks for gigantic money, and ends up signing somewhere else, meaning we've lost two very good goalies in just over a year for absolutely nothing.
Sign Huet. Keep Aeby or trade Aeby, that's up to Bob. But start by signing Huet. People forget that this wasn't his first year, he also did really well with the Kings. Apparently some are too focused on the hypothetical situation of Huet sucking, when there's no evidence on earth that that will happen.
