A lot of people wanted to see how Huet will perform in the playoffs before giving him a new contract. Now that the season is over, what do you think would be reasonable and what he will actually get ? As an UFA, don't forget other teams will try to land him also.
Get off the crack no way he gets that much...... He made 456,000 this year...I would offer him a million max...take it or leave it....Abbey can shoulder the load next season if need be....
True, but why would Gainey want to hardball Huet after all he's done...not expecting a 4 million dollar contract but something like 1.5-2 million seems fair, especially when you take into consideration the fact that both Aebischer and Huet combined make twice as less as Theo does this year. If say both our goalies eat up 4-4.5 million dollars in salary and play like they did this year, then we would certainly be getting a bargain.
I agree that some of the numbers thrown around in this thread look a little high. Something in the $1-1.5M range per season would seem adequate, IMO. If Huet wants that to be on a very short term, even just 1 year, to give himself a chance to prove his staying power over a full season, then that's fine. But I don't see the need to offer more. We just went through that whole mess with Theodore, didn't we? You think Gainey didn't learn something?
