Wow... Huet putting Vezina type numbers, maybe he is Vezina type material? There were doubters that Kiprusoff could repeat, and look at him now. And they needed Higgins to score on pace with Ovechkin? I guess you could say SJ needed Thornton to score on pace with Jagr and NJ needed Gionta to keep scoring goals on pace with Heatley.

It's bad that we "need" our players to perform well to see success? How else are we supposed to see success? How else is success even ACHIEVED in hockey unless your players perform?


You know your argument is lousy when you begin to knock your clutch players performing under pressure...
