Personally, I think a two goalie system is not the way to go. It's not good for the goalies and not good for the team in general. I think Abby should be spotted in his starts for now, we owe Huet at least that much, if he fails, so be it.
If Abby plays good and a deal should come along, let him go.(Philly maybe)
Huet and Dennis can hold the fort till price comes along.

Ps

The difference between the hab & the sabs is the foot speed of the buffalo defence, they can jump into the play much faster than our D. Buffalo is the perfect fit for the new nhl
lol Huet was not that bad tonight. The first goal was mostly bad luck and he should have stop it. The second goal, Huet was a little off position but the shot was perfect. The third goal was not his fault, the puck hit Pomminville stick.

You need to relax guys, our goalers are far from being awful, you don't trade players after 8 games.

3,5M?

Huet is 2 years, first year 3M$, second year 2,75M$

Aebischer is 1 year , 1,9M$

The poor Avalanches need to pay Theodore 5,5M$ this year and 6M$ next year.

What's that logic?

Huet is not playing well. We should make him play more.
Aebischer is playing well. We should trade him.

What does that say to the team: "Well, Huet lead us to the playoffs last year so we owe it to him to be the starter, even if we fail to make it this year."

In my book it is called playing .500, not bad, not good, but not too bad.

Goaltending is only 30% of the problem right now.

When you start Huet every other game including twice against the league's top team (although I'll forgive the first time since nobody knew Buffalo would turn out to be such a powerhouse), of course he's not going to look sharp. Huet needs to start tomorrow against the Bruins and build his confidence.

Anyway, what about that Big League Chew? Have they branched out into new flavors or is it still only that classic "bubble gum" flavor they had when I was a youngster?

How does the Boston Bruin's Tim Thomas compare to goaltending being 30% of the problem in Montreal? I want proof with algebra. (This question is worth 10 marks)

A 2 goaltender system can work. They are just going about it the wrong way. IMO, it was unacceptable to start Huet for the home opener. Aebischer beat the Leafs and the Flyers. He was hot and he had a three day rest. I say we would have won that game if Aebischer was in. Don't ever rest a hot goalie. Bad Move.

The team isn't playing in front of Huet. Btw, don't give me this crap that he has played Buffalo twice. Buffalo is trash.

No he was not, even during his best years he was a horrible puck handler, always giving the puck away a few times a game and often for a good scoring chance against. A good puck handler Theo is not, and has never been.

Maybe I worded that wrong. But they aren't as good as people think. The St Louis Blues could beat them with a little effort.

If you people want to translate it back to the old system, do it correctly. Make it 3-2-3 - 3 wins, 2 losses, 3 ties.
That's above .500.

Theo was about as good as Huet at handling the puck.
At least I don't cringe when Abby's the one leaving his net.

Yeah, they're only 9-0-0 and have only scored 5 goals a game. What a bunch of losers.

Starting the year with 2 #1 goalies was always a dumb idea. They should have either let Huet go as a FA, or if they were commited to Huet traded Aebischer. Danis was good enough to be a backupt his year. It was a dumb idea to start the year with two #1 goalies and the team is paying for it now.

If 10 points in 8 games is paying for it then I hope the Habs keep paying for it all season long.

so this is your panic attack #1 for the season so far....

Here's a useful tip... dont make threads according to what you think a facial expression means. It might earn you some more credibilty around here.
