Price getting the starter is the GM Gainey's choice. Gainey didn't wanna be a ***** so he traded Huet so he could have a chance somewhere else.

If you think Huet would take MTL to the cup, then that is your opinion. Both Price and Huet lost to Philadelphia, Price was playing tired (he said it himself, since the beginning of the playoffs he says). I think Price will only keep getting better. We'll see.

Since the trade deadline and the end of the regular season, the 2 best goalies in the League (or the east, don't remember exactly) were Price and Huet. I remember Price's stats were better.
lol whut? I calls it like I see it, no speculation here. You can spin it to your point of view, that's fine. Stats ain't the name of the game. Price's puck handling and glove hand just said "hi".

The one I definitely do not agree is Huet. Among the top15 goalies of NHL.

Then Streit is among the best with an option for THE best if he can turn the team. I always though he could be the heart of a team if the opportunity came. He may have it with the islanders.

The best signing so far BY FAR has been Darcy Hordichuk....just kidding


I thought some of the better signings were Miettinen, Brunette, Fedotenko and Hossa (obviously), as well I think Naslund will turn out to be a great signing with a coemback year!

Some bad signings...Finger, Hagman (what a coincidence), Pitkanen at 4M, Ron Hainsey

Huet is a goalie that is very easy to figure out. He is extremely weak on shots going blocker side or close to the body on his glove side. On the other hand he is absolutely incredible down low.

hes gonna tell fletcher: " well, i really dont think im worth that much so if you
could give me a substantial paycut that would be great"

I thought the Orpik deal was pretty good. Along with the Hossa, Stuart, Stillman and Brunette deals.

Great...another crop of fans who'll blindly defend Avery's pathetic sideshow. What an embarassment.


Best:
Hossa
Tucker
Rolston (he'll be big for NJ)
Fedotenko (2.25? that's a steal, or have we forgot his 2 goals to clinch TB their 1st cup)
Naslund @ 4 million. As a Canuck fan, it's nice to see Nazzy move somewhere with a supporting cast. With good linemates, Naslund will score 30/60, at least.
