And Huet made it pretty clear yesterday that he feels capable of doing it two nights in a row. When asked if he felt capable of playing back-to-back games in Buffalo tonight and at home tomorrow against the Philadelphia Flyers, Huet just looked up and smiled.

"Better than spending back-to-back games on the bench, eh?"

Exactly.
I love this guy. He brings such a calming presence in the net.

I'm wondering what Melansson did to make Huet so good. He's the same goaltender that was in LA a few years ago. He was good there, but not anything like in Montreal.

And the funny thing, for us at least, is that LA don't have a real number one goaltender right now...

We definitely got the better end of the deal, Huet is playing steller and Bonk is playing the role of the perfect defensive centeman.
But I often wonder what would have happened if Garon would have got a fair share of games when he was a Hab.....I know he would have won the starting job from Theodore, hell....I could have stole that job from Theo and I'm just a rec hockey goalie. But I love Huet, I like the style he plays...I like how calm he is while he plays. He is proving that he is one of the leagues best up-and-coming goaltenders.

GO HABS GO
HUET HUET HUET!!!!!

The thing that impresses me most about Huet is his nerve. I believe they are made of steel. He is not the type of goalie who falls apart after a bad goal. His ability to shake it off and stay balanced is as important a skill for a goalie to have as is reflexes or mobility. If you have the physical skill but dont have the mental toughness than you will not succeed. And same for the oposite.
Right now, Huet is showing an excellent mindset; and along with sound positioning and improving mobility he is at the top of his game.

Keep it up CristoWALL!

As another poster mentioned, Huet doesn't fall apart after a bad goal. He doesn't after a bad game or two, either - not that it happens often to begin with.

In fact, it's looking like the way to score on Huet is to play against him early in the season.

Yeah, Todd mails it in a lot of the time.

But the "wine" half of the Canadiens wine-and-cheese duo has been hotter than the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino that was just named the Wine Spectator's wine of the year. The French might lose wine contests to the Italians, but if this keeps up, France might become an exporter of NHL goaltenders.

Give me a break.

The "Wine and cheese duo"





I admit though that the Montalcino part sucked.

A not-so-subtle dig at Abby, considering the type of cheese we're talking about.

Huh? The article was a little heavy on the metaphors, but it was pretty well written, if a little colloquial for my taste (but what do you expect from the National Post?). In fact, it was a perfect National Post article -- arrogant, while at the same time written at a grade eight level -- the norm for journalism nowadays, unfortunately, with few exceptions).

Wine and Cheese duo refers to their respective nationalities, if anyone didn't get it.

See there's his red pads.. I wish he'd start using them in games. They look better in my opinion, but why stop using the white ones while he's on his hot streak?

White heat is hotter than red heat.


I boo myself as if I was at the Laugh Factory when Michael Richards went crazy.

The one thing that I really like about Huet is his demeanour in the nets. He is extremely calm and collected and nothing appears to faze him. This is the reason why I believe the team is playing better as they have a great deal of confidence in Huet. They know he will give the team a chance to win every night and will not allow too many bad goals. I remember watching the Habs play when Open-door-Theodore was in nets. The defence played more timidly and were always fearful that if they did not play perfectly the team would have no chance of winning. Case in point, last year when the Habs played the Canucks, Theo let in a two weak goals mere minutes apart which deflated the team and eventually lead to an embarrassing 6-2 loss. At that point, I was ridiculed for being a Habfan in Vancouver. However, I got the last laugh when my Habs made the playoffs and the ‘Nucks did not.

Huh ?

France is known for wine and cheese. Switzerland is known for chocolate. At least on this side of the ocean...

Where do you think Swiss cheese came from?
I agree though, I would normally associate cheese with France as well.

I like the look of Huet's new gear!

I wonder if he'll change it though... can't mess with the pads that are working now.

Give me a break.
Great job by Todd as usual, that sentence is right up there with Ralph's "I heard your dad went at the restaurant and he ate all the food in the restaurant, so they had to close down the restaurant!".

Back on the subject at hand though, Huet really does seem to both enjoy the attention he's getting while still not letting it get to his head. He's exactly the type of player that Montreal needs.

You can always see him being angry when he lets one by him, but so far it has never affected his play for the rest of the game. A-1 determination there.

Shouldn't it be the Wine and Watch combo?


or the "Surrender and Be neutral" combo?


I don't get it.

So, it would be like French fries. We would refer to them as Belgian here...

Then I guess Poutine is the melting pot franchophony dish.
