who looks like a fool now Pierre?

HUET is playing amazing and in a poll I conducted a few weeks ago, the majority of you wanted ahem David Aebischer to start in net every game (or nearly) over Huet.

Sounds like TSN should be hiring you and firing McGuire.

I don't know about that, they should hire me to captain the Cristobal Huet fan club, that's for sure!

Pierre M. is an idiot, he is the english medias version of Michel Villeneuve. I tell you what, if Pierre was as good as HE thinks, he would still be in hockey management.
He continually states that he has had offers but prefers being in the media..thats BS..He is a **** and i can't stand his face.
The other day on team 990 he said " G. Latendresse is going to have to stop the hit and run game he plays" oh ok Pierre you **** , like he should stick around and have a tea with the other player, while his teammates skate up ice.
He is an IDIOT.

there i fell a little better...hehe

Really, it's BS? How do you know? Or, perhaps, you're spewing BS?

It was well documented that Shero, the new GM of the Penguins, offered McGuire a position shortly after taking the reigns in Pittsburgh.

Suppose that blows your theory out of the water, eh?

And he's right. Latendresse hits hard and he's going to the net more. The result of that is the opposition will take exception to him. If he starts dodging confrontation after playing hard, then he'll start to be targetted.

One good sign I've seen from Latendresse is that he's stopped shying away from the rough stuff after the whistle. Once when Koivu was being handled (I forget by who, perhaps during the Ottawa scrum with Alfredsson and Meszaros), Latendresse got involved immediately.

These threads are getting pretty tiresome.

you said it yourself that a few weeks ago most people didn't even want him in nets.


As I said in another thread, there is a book out on everybody. That's what advanced professional scouts do...they come up with tendencies, weaknesses, strengths.

Hell I know a MDT AAA coach that spends a lot of tiem reviewing films of the opposition to come up with his game plan I mean book on the opposition.

It's not an opinion, It's well known McGuire recently declined a position with the Penguins. Also, for an idiot, he sure did well with his life.

Pierre McGuire is one of the best hockey minds in the world. There's no debating that. He understands the game better than anyone around. He was taught by Scotty Bowman and has the respect of every player and manager in the league.

He has the smarts to be a top coach, but in my opinion lacks the people skills. He would make an incredible assistant coach (and has, in the past), but I would rather be in his position, getting to go all over North America and watch games, than be an assistant coach.

He takes alot of unwarrented flack from Habs fans because he's critical about the team. That's his job. He praises the team a whole bunch but nobody mentions that. While he did say "the book was out on Huet", he also mentioned that he has full confidence that Rollie Melanson (who's he's praised as the best goaltending coach in the league) will help Huet overcome the weaknesses in his game.

A few weeks ago when Huet was struggling, alot of people were on here saying that he goes down too quickly, he has poor lateral movement, etc...That's the exact same thing McGuire was saying too.

Some fans just can't take the truth.

The book was out on Roy for 15 years to shoot five hole and he still managed to make the hall of fame.

But honestly, for a guy that claims to be a Habs fan he sure likes to take shots at them. Piss on him.

I agree he is an idiot, but I'm usually with him on his draft day review/analysis.

Anyway who knows hockey at all knows Huet wasn't on his game a the start of the season for some reason, but, these same people should also know that every goaltender as well as every other player on the ice has a slump now and then. Great players bounce back and that's exactly what Huet did. IMHO as a true fan and someone who follows the game, Huet is a great goalie. He has good movement and focus and always seems to be lined up for the shot. From watching him play last season and some when he was with LA, he seems to read the play very well. The puck usually hits him somewhere in the center of his body which should tell you that he is in great position and has his angle cut down perfectly. Even on those one timers or quick wrist shots after a perfect tape to tape pass, he's there to make the stop. Huet is the number one goaltender in Montreal, and, if they're smart, he will be for the rest of the season and a lot more to come.

Pierre will never shy away from calling like he sees it, even if he is critical of friends. He is knowedgeable, but we all make mistakes. Huet did not look good, and we all knew it.

Although I don't recall taking part in said thread, it's obvious that the majority of sheep Habs fans voted Aebischer. At the time he was playing extremely well and Huet was Average-Good.

I dont get it...all he basically said was huet was a well known goalie now and has been scouted well for any weakness by all teams (since they probably felt scoring a goal might be difficult otherwise). Now players know where to shoot on him and such thus he should have a harder time in net this year. Which some might have noticed during a couple of shootouts. the one against the Sens is a good example as every Sen, if i remember correctly, scored on the same place.

I dont think he doubted Huet as a good goalie but figured that his numbers wont be as good as last years for the above mentioned reasons. I find this a to be a valid guess or prediction as I'm sure this was the case for other goalies as well that he may have seen throughout his career. Whats wrong in pointing out what Huet has to work on.

I'm not a big fan of Pierre McGuire, but i respect what he has to say.

Good point;

I just figured the negative posters was the TSN panel in disguise.
