I guess that seals it, it s not a commentator saying it it s himself

It s Huet, pronounced eh
OK, his own countrymen mispronounce his name. Reminds me of the dual pronunciations of MacKay.

I guess they re a little confused them too....
Depending where you are in france, there is different accents, differents way of pronouncing it etc....
So it really depends where the commentator is from imo...I know France s not big but it s not the same wherever you are over there....
But it s been a lil while that i was waiting for a video of him pronouncing his name so we can finally be clear on this lol

And that little piece of video was made for a French public so i'm thinking they know how to say Huet's name.

Case closed for me !!


well I read in the Habs official magazine he is directly quoted saying it's "Hu-ette" but he doesn't mind what the fans call him

i think I'm the only one that likes Huets puck handling skills

admittedly he does at times make me nervous but i think thats due to getting used to a team that moves the puck so well...
most of his career he played in europe with bigger ice meaning he had more time to play the puck. In L.A the team was not as great as Mtl in moving the puck so i think he takes his time more in order to try and make a lead off pass or draw an opponent a close as possible to get him out of our rush up to the other side...

i find he's great at clearing of the window and/or boards and has a pretty strong pass/clear....

but still needs to work on pin pointing players and decision making

His puck hanling is poor for sure, but having a goalie who is a good "third defenseman" is not as important with the no touch zone now.

His puckhandling to me seems passable. I mean I get more freaked out when he gives away a huge juicy rebound and a forward almost scoops it up. I do get a little nervous when he gets out of the net but I hope he doesn't do a Turco and fall down.

Huet isn't too bad actually. It's Rivet's play near the net that scares me.

I remember watching Huet back when he was still with the Kings and I always thought he was a good goalie. I actually think he played us and we had Garon in net, everyone was going nuts at how good Garon was gonna be but I couldn't help and think that I liked Huet's play better. It's funny but I kinda hoped somebody would give him a shot at #1 and it's ironic that he got the chance for my favourite team.

He seems like a really nice guy too. I can't help but wish a lot of success for the guy. I hope he can keep his play up and be our starter for a few years.

geez Huet is way better than last season. I remember being at a Buffalo game and my friend and I were yelling at him to stay in the net! He must have given up 3 or 4 good scoring chances from his miscues.

...what? Theo was awful at handling the puck.

As a matter of fact, RDS ran a top 10 of Theo's best saves with the Habs some time ago (probably around the Avs game, I'd assume), and basically half of them were him scrambling back to the net after an awful giveaway.
