Swiss is not a language. The three official languages of Switzerland are german, french and italian. Aebischer's first language is german.

I was a big fan of Miikka Kiprusoff during the 2003-2004 season. I always like his style, a ''outsider'' who doesn't talk much , who is very calm on the ice and who is never out of position. He came out from nowhere, he was a good backup in San José and he became a superstar when he stole the no 1 spot in Calgary.

I had the same feeling when I saw Huet in the net for the first time. A goaltender who is always extremely calm, who is always in the right position and who don't take useless risk just to be spectacular. So I was wondering, do you think that Huet can be the next Miikka Kiprusoff? Look at their career stats.

Miikka Kiprusoff (career-regular season)

159 games
Save percentage : 91,8%
GAA: 2,18
SO: 17
Vezina Trophy winner in 2005-2006
William M. Jennings Trophy in 2005-2006

Christobal Huet (career-regular season)

89 games
Save percentage : 91,8%
GAA: 2,32
SO: 11
NHL - Roger Crozier Saving Grace Award (Best save percentage) in 2005-2006


Miikka Kiprusoff (career-playoff season)

37 games
Save percentage : 92,7%
GAA: 1,92
SO: 5
Stanley Cup Finalist in 2003-2004


Christobal Huet (career-playoff season)

6 games
Save percentage : 92,9%
GAA: 2,33
SO: 0

I like the comparaison between those two guys. Those guys seems so solid in front of the net that they make their own players better. Their teamates seems to play more agressively since they know that their goaltenders can repair their mistakes.

They are two ''outsiders''. We can't compare them to Loungo, Brodeur, Turco, Théodore , Giguere , Hasek etc....

I'm not saying that Huet will be for sure just as good as Kiprusoff. I just think that those guys have a lot of things in common and I think that our future look bright with Huet in front of our net.

Thanks for the long reading!

Didn't look too ready in Hamilton.

Martin Gerber also had success last season playing more games than he used to play, and he felt down during the playoffs....

Personnaly, I think the Huet-Aebisher duo will be good for the team.
Gerber was sick during the playoffs. Keep that in mind. Thank you

Too many pucks went by him, it got windy around his net and he got a cold.

He cant be the next Kiprusoff. Kiprusoff won the Vezina. Huet has no chance at that since he only plays 40-45 games a year, not even close to enough for any chance to match that feat. So he is not the next Kiprusoff.

And how many games did Kipper start in 2003-2004? Thanks for playing.

Still bitter that Huet put a dent in your boyfriends career?

It is pretty much well know that Huet and Aebischer are splitting the games this year. Each one playing around 40 games. That is not enough to win the Vezina, which is my point.

Kiprusoff did not win the Vezina in 2003-04, and wasnt he a distant 3rd in voting? Just because you are a candidate does not mean you were close to winning. Kiprusoff won the Vezina last year, playing 74 games. So there is no comparision.

Makes no sense. If he plays like he did at the end of last year, he'll get more than 45 games. They'll have to trade Aebischer or keep him on the bench. They're not going to go to a platoon situation if Huet is tearing it up.

Huet got the big longterm contract, not Aebischer. Huet had 7 SHUTOUTS....with OUR defense. Come on. They're gonna give him every chance in the world to become THE MAN. If he falters, it's ok, Aeby is there.

They also push each other, because both are extremely competitive. Aebischer could steal the job too, who knows? He has to improve his fundamentals, but he definitely has the raw talent to do it. I think Huet's fundies and glove hand and quickness and ability to keep his shape while moving will win him the job though.

It's only well known to you and that doesn't mean much. Do we really need to do this all over again with you?

I wonder just how "well known" it is, seeing as you're the one breaking it to us right now.


Kiprusoff was traded for and played about 40 games, next season he won the Vezina, his second season on the team

Huet was traded for and played about 40 games this past season, this upcoming season will be his second season on our team, which in relation to Kiprusoff will be the year Huet will be able to be reasonably compared to Kipper

You're writing Huet off as not being able to steal the job at all this season even though he's already taken it from Aebischer once already



I'm not saying Huet will be a Kipper, but nobody can say that he doesn't have a fighting chance at this point in time

Actually almost all the 06-07 NHL preview magazines out have them splitting the games in the regular season, and the ones that go into more specific stats have Huet from 40-45 games, and Aebischer close to 40.

There is no way Heut plays 74 games this year which is what Kiprusoff played last year. Even if Huet plays 55-60 games(which I hugely doubt)it would be very unlikely he could win the Vezina, no matter how well he did, because guys like Brodeur, Kiprusoff, and possably Vokoun(if he stays healthier this year)could play 70or more which impacts all the stats-wins, shutouts, games played of course, etc...

In the McKeen's Hockey Pool Yearbook (imo the best zine out there this year), Huet is the only goalie they spotlight. I think it's understood if you follow the team at all that Huet is going to get every chance to take on the full workload.

Any magazine that speculates about the # of games each goalie will play, are doing just that,speculating. Neither Gainey nor Carbo share that info. So 'well known' is just a term you used to make your point. Huet will dictate how many games he plays. If he delivers solid play consistently, he should play 65-75 % of the time with Aebischer playing enough to be ready, and to develop trade value .
