not only that but he'll be around 4 million cheaper than giguere and nabokov, cheaper than biron who'll be demanding a higher salary and belfour? belfour couldn't even cut it for the leafs, yet the wings would rather have this 109 guy with chronic back pains as opposed to aebischer?
aebischer is probably the most underrated goaltender in the nhl, and it's sad.
That's so true, aebischer is the most underrated goaltender in the nhl. All of you guys see him as an unproven goalie because he was backup for the habs during the playoffs. It just so happened that huet was on a good run and that aebischer had just changed club and played 5 games. With aebischer in the playoffs, the habs would have played further in the playoffs than with huet because aebischer knows playoff pressure and for christ's sake, he took patrick roy's place in colorado, know another goalie who did that kind of thing. Aebischer is without a doubt a worldclass goaltender in the nhl that deserves to be number 1 and not backup. Putting aebischer backup is a bloody waste of talent.
