League suits him. Was a capable tender for stretches mired by long periods of no confidence.

No mention of it in the article, but there could still be an NHL out clause that may keep the rumors alive that he's looking to back up in LA or VAN.

Lausanne is not even in the highest league here in Switzerland. They play in the second league

I feel like this guy is hated on too much by Hawks fans. Was hoping he'd get another shot in the NHL, but still congrats to him and hopefully he is successful for this team.

IMO he doesn't get enough flak

Absolutely awful goalie who nearly cost the Hawks a cup.... Thank God Niemi was there to save the day

Huet signs 4 year deal in Switzerland

Sorry teams looking for a goalie, he is off the market.

He's 36 and wasn't very likely to regain his form from when he was a legitimate starter. I don't think many teams were looking too hard at him anyway.

As a Leaf fan, I honestly wouldnt have minded if he paired with Reimer to help mentor him and give some stability to the position

Age 35,36 is sort of when goalies fall off a cliff historically. Huet wasn't going to be the answer for anyone, though I think he might have had another shot in the NHL after Chicago somewhere if he'd signed for ~$3m'ish rather than 4yrs@$5.6m.

I remember tons of people booing him at the Cup parade. He smiled, waved, then grabbed Niemi and gestured that this guy was number one.

Terrible player, great guy. The Hawks have had a bunch of those kinds of players over the past two years.

I wonder what kind of money he is making. Good on him though for locking a job until he turns 40.

Why him? There are lots of goalies out there who can do that and probably play at the same level Huet did. Like Giguere from the last couple years. Did it really help all that much?

Besides, won't you have Luongo for that in a couple months?
