Puurula was injured at the start of the season, but he had lost his starting job to Rob Tallas, who played very well. After his return from injury, he didn't get much ice time till Tallas got injured. He has played a lot recently, but from the sounds of it management isn't happy with his inconsistent play, so they are looking for another starter if Tallas can not return.

Halak is climbing up the charts, and it's hard to place him over Lapierre who is easier to get info on, as I have only seen Halak once in the WJC's. I was impressed even though he let in the softie (it was a bad bounce for him, jumped at the last second) His gaa in the mens league was only in 10 or so games, but impressive non the less. I do feel he is the Habs top goalie prospect and very underrated.
