Apparently it is not unrealistic that the Habs may call up Yann Danis after 5 games if Huet and Aebischer aren't showing !
... not very reassuring
As for the Forwards and D's questions abound and I think that it's sufficient to say that this season might go both ways :
Scenario 1 - The Habs Goaltending proves good, the team plays with trust and the Habs can aim at 4th or 5th in the east.
Scenario 2 - The Habs Goaltending fails, the D's have a rough time and it all goes to the snapper ! Habs finish out of contention !
No matter what though, the Bruins lose in the first round
I don't see the goaltending as the problem. One of Huet or Aeby will pick up the slack, I don't think both will go down.
I think the problem is our agility and puck moving on defense. Buffalo and Ottawa and Boston are gonna eat us alive. But we should do the same to their D.
