Huet 2006 vs Theo 2002

Do you think Huet this year is better than Theo did back in 2002 ???

Sure Huet hasn't played the same number of games and won't win hart and vezina but he just saved the season for the habs !!!

But still, my vote goes for Theo 2002 because simply he had a much weaker team in front of him !

Imo our Defence is far better than 2002, our whole team is.

The two arguments you listed in favour for Theodore's season are exactly why Theodore's season was far more impressive. Theodore was an allstar, and was spectacular since he came back from injury, in about November. Huet has only been good for 30 games (granted, he couldn't play earlier due to injury). Theodore was not only consistent all year, but he played behind one of the least offensive teams in the league (Perreault was the leading scorer) and one of the worst defensive teams (the team allowed 30+ shots a night it seemed). Huet has a much better offense, consisting of proven point producers like Kovalev and Koivu (who was absent for essentially all of the 01-02 season) and a much better defense (Andrei Markov and Sheldon Souray have emerged since then).

There really should be no question that at THIS POINT, Theodore's season was more impressive. That's not to say that Huet won't have more playoff success or anything like that, but just based on statistics and an analysis of the circumstances, I would conclude that Theodore's 2002 season was far greater.

Thanks for the stat. That certainly is interesting and puts a nice dent in my argument.

I think subjectively, we can conclude our defense has been far better this year than in 2002. Perhaps our defense is doing a better job in containing shots to the outside, whereas Theodore had to face tougher opportunities?!

I believe Theo was facing way more difficult shot than Huet. Huet is having an incredible second half season, but Théodore was simply the BEST player in the league in 2001-2002

Yeah stats don't tell everything, I too remember Theo making some crazy saves especially in the last games before the playoffs.

Hard to tell weither they were BETTER chances or weither Theo just made it harder for himself. Imo Huet has better Rebound control and is more positionaly sound. I do have to say that I thought our defence was far worse, but that stat could prove otherwize. We'll have to see in the playoffs I guess.

I dont know why all want to tear down what Theo accomplished. He may have left the team on bad terms but he gave Montreal some glorious years. Show him some respect.

I really loved Theodore back then but............ I never really bought it. I always felt like the
bottom could fall out at any time. But Huet is as cool as it gets. I think this guy really has a
grip on it.
Huet!

Isn't it the same thing with Theo? He only had an incredible second half (I could be wrong but I'm sure I've heard that in a lot of place).

Huet is impressive. And right now, with salary taken into account, i wouldnt want Theo back over that Huet.

With that been said, just go watch a 2002 game again if you are unsure. Theodore was a wall against those 28.51 shots a game with 15-20 coming from the slot nights in nights out.

I dont think i still consider myself a fan of Theo, although i still think he might rebound in Colorado. But you got to give credit where it's due, his half-a-season performance was the best goalie performance i might have ever saw nights in nights out.
