it's because he's playing better than Huet.Plain and simple!

What teams are in need of a goalie?

Exactly, Huet sucks lately and Abby is playing very good. Gainey doesn't want to "show" Abby he wants to WIN.

Tampa Bay? Just sayin'.
Richards for Abby, Sammy, and Janne!!!

Now the question is whether the fundamental differences in the styles of the 2 goalies are a strong contributor to the recently poor efficiency of the PK (they do say the goalie is the most important player on the PK), or if this just coincides with the way the penalty killers have been playing (aggressiveness, blocked shots, etc.).

Maybe I should start a thread about this.
Maybe we could sub Huet in on the PK

Can you imagine? I bet we'd be the only team in history to ever have done that.

Without a doubt. Melanson has been responsible for Theodore's MVP season (although I believe he said Theo had piss poor work habits), working with Huet and now cutting down Aebischer's rebounds and flopping. I think we're very lucky to have a great goalie coach in Melanson.

I don't think Aebischer's success wil last foreover. Nor do I think Huet will remain in the doldrums. For some reason they're never in sync: both bad or both good at the same time. Instead, one steps in for the other.
