Man I don't think I want to give up what it would take to get Ohlund, but what do you want for Rypien? His salary isn't that much, and his trade value isn't too high because of his injured past, but when he's playing, he is one tough SOB. he's also proved that he can score. I'd love to have Rypien.

doubtful, aucoin is playing a little better lately, and sarich is pretty steady, but I have a feeling aucoin is gone to UFA and not resigned this year, and sarich... well, he's sarich. Good at times, and ***** at times, at least with the youngins we would have something to blame the f-ups on.

Everyone is wanting to get rid of Huet already eh.... Surprising to hear this, although I haven't had the time to watch much of the games thus far into the season. Has he really been that bad? I thought this was a good signing when I heard about it in the off season, cause from watching so many Toronto - Montreal games in the past I always thought that Huet was a good goalie. Maybe he just needs some time to adjust??

Well I think some of his badness has been overblown by some people around here but he certainly could be playing better. Seems to be mostly mental mistakes though, perhaps the situation has Khabibulin has messed with his confidence or something I don't know. What I do know is that everyone aside from Dale Tallon thinks it is a terrible idea to have $12 mil locked up into two goalies when there are positions where that money could be much better spent (a second line center / winger most notably).

Realistically, two of the goals he didn't have a chance on (the first and third). But the second goal was absolutely horrendous and he didn't even move on it... just stood there

The problem is that we need him to make all of the easy saves and steal at least one of the high percentage goals per game if we want to be considered an upper echelon team. Letting 3 goals in the first 12 shots can't happen if your team is going to win consistently!!!

We need a lot of our players to step up their games right now, not just Huet!

Thank goodness Khabby is playing well. If I'm coach Q, I run with Khabby until he stinks up the place. Huet has always flourished when he's put into a back up role.

First post here...

I think it's pointless and counterproductive to play a goalie when he's struggling, especially when the goalie beside him is playing very well. Both have big contracts to deal with, I don't understand why we can't let the hot hand ride.

In response to just how bad Huet has been, I've got to say it's been pretty bad. I count at least 3 blatantly soft goals (probably more like 5) that an average college goalie would routinely stop. It's gotta be a confidence thing, at least I hope it is.

edit: and for the love of god, he needs to work on covering up his 5-hole

Thats the only good thing about having both Huet and Khabby, hasn't Bulin been playing well too? I think he got a shutout against Edmonton, I could be mistaken though

I think part of the reason that they keep going back to Huet is:
1. Khabby is old and needs a break
2. He has proven he's a capable NHL goalie and will eventually bounce back
3. Management doesn't want to look completely stupid to give Huet a massive salary to sit on the bench

Hahaha you got that key point right on there.

But number two will hopefully turn out to be a key factor for us as well, if it happens that is.

Yeah man, Khabibulin has the hot hand right now, they should play him. He didn't look too great against the wings, but he did shut out the Oilers, but the Oilers played like crap, Huet would have earned the shutout as well in that game.

Huet would have given up four goals.

No he wouldn't have. Maybe not a shutout but the Hawks would have won that game with my grandma in net.
