Huet's save percentage

It occurred to me that one of the reasons Huet has a league-leading save percentage is that the Habs give him so many opportunities. In the Lightning game, he faced 23 shots in the first period and stopped 22 of them. Did the team tighten up in the second and third periods and carry the play to the offensive zone? Hardly. They finished with 14 SOG. Keep it up, boys, and you'll make a wreck of Huet long before the playoffs.

We give many shots to the oposition, but Huet is good enough to stop most of those shots...that why he has a great save percentage...he seems confortable when he receives many shots so it's not a huge problem. We shouldn't give 40 shots on goal tho...keep that number at around 30 and everything should be fine.

Most of his shots are from the outside and far away. I think our d-men have been doing a decent job of keeping snipers away from the net and limiting them to weak and anything but dangerous shots

The Habs do give up a lot of shots, but very few scoring chances.

If your impression is valid, then Aebischer should also have a high save percentage.

completely agree, the truth is that Huet game does not change and always focus on positioning and staying calm.. when often Aebisher is simply doing strange movements that creates spaces all over the net.. dont know if it is just Aebisher.. but Huet does it all sweet.. there is occasional mistakes.. but really it is rare for him..

but aebsicher hasn't played as well as huet.

Huet has been able to stop shots and make them look easy in cases where abby makes the shots more difficult on himself. Abby had a nice start to the year but he's looked fairly uncomfortable since.

Not true. Aebischer has horrendous rebound control and is often out of position even on the easiest of shots. Defenseman now where Huet is putting rebounds, meanwhile Aebischer often puts them on opponents sticks for another chance or is out of position to face a rebound.

Look at the TB game, Huet faced 41 Shots wich is a lot but a regular load for Huet, we need to tighten up the D if we want to go deep in the Playoffs.
