I think itís obvious that Cechmanek is a better goalie than Huet, based on career numbers. Huet hasnít played enough games to get an accurate read on him. A lot of players put 10-20 game streaks together then fall apart over the long run. I would agree Huet has looked better than Cechmanek so far this year, not necessarily in even strength situations though. Cechmanek has been solid in 5-on-5 situations and has struggled on PK. What another 2 PPG tonight? Iím not implying Cechmanek is the main reason the Kings suck on the PK, thatís partly it. The main reason IMO is the Kings have been giving up too many quality chances on PK. I donít think there is any goaltender controversy, the Kings invested 3 million or so in Cechmanek, so unless he sucks over a good stretch of games (40+) or is injured, I donít see Huet taking away his job this year.
