Khabi is better this year, and I think he has had the better career. Huet shows promise, year in and year out, but he always seems to come up just short in too many games.

Huet's really inconsistent, Blackhawks made a mistake in signing him to that huge contract.

Huet stinks. He is one of the most overrated and overpayed goaltenders in the NHL. Last season was his only one making over 40 starts and it wasnt even for the same team. He has never made 40 starts for the same team in a season ever.

Khabibulin is playing great right now, which he always seems to do on the final year of his contract.

Well, NHL 09 says that Khabibulin is better, so I am going to have to go with Khabibulin.

If I had to pick one, I'd also go with Khabibulin but only by a slight margin.

Even back when he was in Montreal, I've always felt that Huet was highly overrated. He's a decent goalie but in my books, he isn't even in the top 15 in the league.

I agree if this poll is based on the entire career of each goalie. But if the poll is based on the the last 3-4 seasons, I would take Huet.

I'd take Khabi, just because he has more experience and the fact that Huet hasnt been consistant throughout his career. Both are great goalies though.

This poll would have very different results if it was conducted before the Winter Classic.

I wonder if the poll would have been different if Khabibulin would have played those years in Montreal and Huet in Chicago... as a matter of fact, I don't think that there would have been a poll.

You're not giving the membership here enough credit, thinking that they'll be influence by one game... I like to think that we're smarter than that.

Khabibulin. But neither is a viable long-term solution at this point in time.

Not really!

As a long time Khabby fan and his biggest supporter on HF right now!

I vote for Khabby!

Huet sucks and was a horrible free agent pickup. Been saying that since the ink dried

I agree wholeheartedly. Probably the most overpayed goaltender and one of the most overpayed players in the NHL today. I wonder if any journeyman goaltender will have ever more lucked into 29 million or so for 6 and a half years of what will probably be mostly mediocre work (and based on his history might be more platoon starting work than true starting goaltender work) just because he had a good first couple months for a famous team in a time of desperation.

And I was saying that last year at the deadline when some Habs' fans were crying over the trade at the deadline!
