Quick sign Stephane Matteau, then we can trade him for Luongo, Jokinen, and Bouwmeester.

We solve three needs at once. Goalie, Centre ice, and a good, excellent skating young defenceman.



Cmon BG Matteau sounds french, he might want to come to Montreal, just don't tell him about the florida trade plan.

Don't worry, even though the guy will be UFA he'll be traded before and there's tons of other teams that will have something more interesting than we do to offer. Would Luongo choose the Habs if he becomes UFA, probably. But he has no choice if he's traded before and the Habs must be ready to pay the big Price...if they want to acquire him. Panthers will still be able to grab some great great players from the other teams.....

If Luongo wants to come to Montreal, it's completely in his hands. He just has to ride out the year, even if he is traded, and go UFA.

Well, unless Huet signs with MTL for 3mil a year and keeps up with his unbelievable stats. Montreal might simply not be interested in a 6-million-dollar goalie then.

Well that's the thing. Cristo's stats over the half season or so he played were phenomenal. Top-5 in most categories including shutouts. Even considering how fuzzy goalie stats can be, that's quite telling about his level of play.

Now, I don't think anybody really expects him to keep this level of play up over an entire season. If by some miracle he does, however, and at 3 million per year, he'll be a Luongo-level goaltender, a Vezina-class goalie, who doesn't make Luongo money. That has incredible trade value, but it's also something the Habs might want to keep for themselves!

The question is, though: can Cristo do this? We'll find out next year.

Unless Huet is a Hasek reincarnation, the Habs would be foolish to pass on a star goalie, one that wants to play here.

That's exactly why Luongo wants to sign a 1-year deal. He wants to avoid being traded to a crap team.

Absolutely, but Huet had star-caliber stats at the end of the season. I don't really expect that he can keep this up all season but if he does (if), then he's a star goalie.

Listen people, as much as I like Huet and as much as I think he done an exceptional job here in Montreal I think that if we had Luongo in net we would have possibly beaten Carolina. The one soft goal each night he gave up was the difference in each game. If we can get Luongo...dump Aebby and Huet and bring up Danis as our back-up.

More like the one goal Montreal couldn't score.

Blaming Huet for the series loss is crazy. He's the reason why the Habs won the first 2 games. He left in a couple of soft goals, but so did Ward, Roloson and Bryzgalov...Luongo would have left some weak ones in if he was in the post-season too. Heck, Patrick Roy is the best playoff goalie of all time and he's let in quite a few stinkers between the pipes.

ya thats true, you can't really say Huet was the reason why we lost. I mean when Koivu went down, the offense was gone for a couple of games(games 4 and 5) In game 6 the habs dominated carolina but couldn't put the puck in the net.
