no chance, so now Derek Roy is a franchise player ?

If they decided that Huet was not going to play much the rest of the way, it was the right thing to move him and get something back to boot.

Otherwise, with him here, we would have the daily questioning and second-guessing of who the goaltender would be after a win, after a loss, after a bad goal, after a shutout, after a game the night before, etc., etc.

Only if, as the coach, you keep stating how it will be a battle till the end, that the best should play, that who wins keeps playing and so on....Carbo just had to state that Price is my #1 and Huet will be assisting him the rest of the way.

Don't you think that, if Price has 1 or 2 bad games in a row, that the journalists won't start asking about Halak? The guy was the best in the AHL and is the reason why Huet was let go, shouldn't he play and all those types of questions.

The goalies were, are and will always be an obsession in Montreal. Don't worry, the questions about Halak will come soon enough if Price is somewhat shaky...

You also had the guts and smarts not to get ripped off for Hossa, a proven poor playoff performer , and a grossly overpaid player this summer. According to BG they wanted 4 elements and 3 of them " would of played with us tonight" .

you can blast him all you want , but the deal would of been somthing like this

Higgins, Lapierre, Lats, and a first in 2008

Lapierre, S. Kostistin , Latendresse and maybe Emelin

FOR A RENTAL player who will command 7-8 mil for what 35 goals ?
.
Let me answer this one... it's 19 goals comes playoffs time.

13 goals in 55 playoffs game for Hossa... is like 19 goals in 82 games.

Maybe that will change with Crosby centering him... We will see... on the other hand.. we don't have Crosby... so.
