if Huet signs elsewhere...

would you guys be comfortable with Aebisher and Danis in nets for the next season? but more importantly, would the Habs' brass be comfortable with that tandem?

I don't wanna jinx it for Huet signing with the Habs, just curious to see other opinions

I'm not too sure. I know Aebischer's a pretty decent goaltender, but I haven't seen much of Danis' game yet.

I think we'll be allright. We know what Aebisher can do in the NHL, and Danis seems NHL ready as a backup. He did good in that role with the Habs at the begining of the season. Bringing in Biron wouldn't be an upgrade over Aebisher.

Can't disagree more. Hate Aebisher's rebound controls and in a league where everybody can crash the net and as d-men you can't do a single thing about it, rebound controls means everything and we saw it with Huet last year.

Biron has a great advantage as far as that skill compared to Aebi.

I would

There are almost no difference between Aebischer/Danis and Huet/Danis.

My opinion is that none of these guys should be part of our long term plan.That's why i am against signing Huet for 3 + years.

Yes , esp. with the fact that the teams that would want him compete with us (Tampa , Toronto or Atlanta..)

Aebischer has the raw talent to be better than Huet. If he can work on his positioning and if he could be a tad more consistent, he'd be a premiere goalie. Danis imo, is ready to take over the number 2 position. So yes, I'd feel okay with the combo, but I'd prefer Huet/Danis or Huet/Abby.

I would feel perfectly comfortable. Unlike most people, I am still a little bit skeptical over Huet's ability. Of course he had a great season, and playoffs, but sometimes I really did wonder whether it was just a run. I suppose part of the reason that I think this way is that we've seen a lot of netminders recently, who have had one good season, play poorly after cashing in (Giguere, Theodore, Nabokov, Khabibulin). Of course, Huet has a different personality from all those players I listed, as he appears more humble and genuine, but I still have doubts.

I think Aebischer has the ability to be a number 1. He has done it in the past, and while there do appear to be certain holes in his game, I wouldn't be surprised that once he gets used to our defense 100%, he'll adjust.

I'm curious as to when Carey Price will start playing for us. Seeing Cam Ward shine 4 years after he got drafted, I'm hoping that we see Price do the same in about the same time frame. That is something that really does excite me.

ON another board a poster stated(source spector's) that talks are going slowly but cordially between Gainey and Huet's camps and that a proposal should be put forth next week. It reports Huet is looking for a 3 year $8-9 million contract.

If Huet goes let's sign Gerber. We'll have a swiss duo :p

Seriously, I'd feel comfortable with Danis and Aebischer.

Let that **** walk if that's the case. I don't believe he'd ask for so much money after one half of a season.

How can Danis be a UFA when he is still a rookie, and will be next year because he played under 21 games. And not to mention this was his first season. Sorry but it makes no sense??

Personally I wouldn't be upset at $7-8 mil. over 3 years. A cap hit of $2.33-2.66mil isn't bad for a starting goalie and by the time that contract is up Price should hopefully be ready to go.

To the original poster's question. I'd be okay with it. We're at a point in our team where a superhuman goalie isn't necessary. As long as all our players play up to expectations and we get a few key signings here and there, it won't matter who's in net.

He had half a season as a starter. I don't think he should command 8-9m$/3 years.

well it boils down to this ... 2.25 - 2.5 million for 3 years might seem like a gamble . like the gamble the flames took with kipper . that gamble payed off bigtime look at his salary . huet isnt kipper dont get me wrong but he is solid and the team loves playing infront of him . just give him his money and let get on with it


what happens if he come's back this season and is even better than last year . leads the leauge all year in gaa and sv %? just pay the man i say worst case senerio you can waive him or buy him out . the fans will lynch gainey if he isnt in a habs jersey this fall
(insert huet chant here)

im sure he is working hard on conditioning in the off season i expect he will dominate and back up his solid play and prove to
the entire leauge he is for real . the goal tending he gave us was more than sufficent to do damage in the playoffs. we just needed that scoring foward gainey is now looking for .

I just don't like the fact that he's "asking" for this price.

What what I've observed about Gainey, he probably wouldn't give Huet $8-9M, and then he'd sign Danis as Aebischer's backup. It makes me wonder which team would give Huet that much if the Habs drop out of the bidding. Toronto? Tampa Bay? That's about it. Frankly, I think Huet would have to settle for less.
