Really, you prefer Huet?

Works for me. I'd like Emery in LA. He's a good backup option and I have a soft spot for scrappy goalies.

Well, except Cloutier. I try to forget that time of my life.

No thanks. Lack looks like he's ready to make the jump to be Cory's backup. He'll make his case in training camp (although I think he already has with his stats over the last two years in the AHL).

Er, ok lets try this again.

I as a Kings fan would rather have Huet in Los Angeles than that hack Emery. He isn't as good as our next up and coming goalie and there just wouldn't be any reason under the sun or anywhere else that the Kings would want Emery.

Huet would be a nice back up and allow us to move JB for value. Good idea if we have to move him.

Jones is a very much better option for us than Emery and a short term deal for Huet would be a solid move by DL.

Perhaps he's now over that injury that prevented him from stopping pucks in 2010.

Isn't that exactly what you have been doing whenever Emery plays for you guys?

I would rather see Lack get spotted a few NHL games over the season.

Fill in for injuries, but keep in mind how patient they were with Schneider.

Yes, we do. Hence why we are saying we would hope one of our rivals get him (because he sucks)..and since he is a downgrade, we dont want him back.

Not sure whats so funny.

Just to let everyone know. I have not signed with the Cauncks yet... I'm still a RFA.

Huet would be good for 1 thing and 1 thing only. Team chemistry.

As player, Huet is done in the NHL and would be the worst goalie. As teammate and mentor, he would be perfect for Schneider. LA only makes sense because of his history with that franchise

I think Huet would be good for either of those teams. I don't necessarily think signing Huet will happen first to signify another imminent move though (Luongo or Bernier trade) but that Huet will be signed afterward to fill the hole the former leaves, whichever gets moved, if either of them even do.

I am a Blackhawks fan and do not hate Huet. The biggest problem with him in Chicago was that he was overpaid, not necessarily a terrible goalie. His first year there, he was the expected starter but eventually lost it to Khabibulin. The second year again, he was supposed to be the expected starter but Niemi far-exceeded expectations and the rest is history. After that, Huet was simply not on the team anymore because of his cap hit and that proved true for a number of other now-ex-Blackhawks (Byfuglien, Ladd, Versteeg, Eager, Sopel, etc.). All those players were part of the cap hell we went through after the Cup win. Huet was sent overseas because his cap hit was too large; even if he played better there was no chance he still would have been in Chicago. Cap space was key that summer and has been ever since for the Hawks in order to keep the core that won the Cup in 09-10 together. Huet, along with the others, were victims of the salary cap. I'm not saying Huet was fantastic in Chicago, but a more-than-capable backup that was simply way overpaid for that job.

That said, I do think Huet has something to offer an NHL team. If we're talking either Vancouver or Los Angeles, I believe both would want to replace their possible-to-be-traded current backups with veteran backups if they can. I think that's the best scenario. Eddie Lack is a very good prospect, but I think another year in the AHL would be great for him and I think a veteran backup would also be great for Schneider. For the Kings, I think Quick would also benefit from having a veteran backup if Bernier is moved (which I don't think will happen) but he'll carry most of the load himself. Whether it's returning to LA or going to Vancouver, it'll only be for a year and Huet would be in a good position to win and I think he'd be good for both of those teams as well. Just my two cents.

Meh, on a cup contender? I doubt it. Maybe Lack is ready but I seriously doubt Vancouver is willing to go into a season with Schneider and a rookie.

Lots of you put a lot of faith in goalie who has been out of the NHL for multiple seasons.

Especially over one who was a starting goalie (albeit a mediocre one) for a third of last season or so.

I dont want Huet or Emery. Let Jones be the backup in LA.

Even better would be to not trade Bernier, who will only be an RFA at the end of next season. I dont get why so many fans want to move him already. Let him play another year, get more games in, hopefully increase his value further, then evaluate what to do.

Didn't Huet leave due to contract reasons, him being overpaid and Chicago dumping him in the A? Can't remember, but I think he'd be a sufficient back up at a good price (around a mill or less).

He asked for a trade; that's why everyone's talking about moving him. He wants to be able to continue his career elsewhere so he has a chance to start, which he won't ever get behind Quick. It's hard not to try moving a player who doesn't necessarily want to be there anymore, no matter what the team wants to do. Sure, it'd be better to keep him and let his value get higher but the team doesn't necessarily have that option in Bernier's situation.

I agree with your statement. And yes, he was forced out because he was overpaid. Never went to the AHL, but overseas as a preference to him. The Hawks did the best they could to accommodate him somewhere else where he'd be comfortable.

Jones isn't near ready to play nhl games He needs at least a year maybe two in the ahl. I would take either huet or emery before have jones start nhl games. Idealy yeah id want bernier to stay as well unfortunatly he asked to be traded and will when we can get what hes worth/

Is Lack not ready for at least a backup role yet? Hes putting up solid numbers in the A and last time i heard hes ready for his shot, not sure why Nucks would be interested in Huet who is a pretty poor choice behind Schneider.
