Didn't see a thread for this guy. If there is one, please redirect.

I was just checking some stats for some of our Bulldog players and this guy's numbers really caught my eye. In 49 career games prior to this season he has posted a 1.93 GAA and a .937% and has faced 1428 shots. This season, in 6 games, he's posted a 2.01 GAA and a .935%. Very impressive numbers. But stats can be misleading.

If someone who has seen this guy play in Hamilton could give some thoughts on how he looks, I'm sure it would be appreciated.

Lammy, I've seen very little of Halak, can you (Or anyone else around Hamilton) tell me what kind of style he plays? I've heard that he plays an unconventional style in the vein of Hasek or Irbe, but I don't know much past that and the fact that he has a habit of staying deep in his net.

Not too sure how to comment on Halak....he does "flop around" quite a bit in the nets, but not to the extreme that Irbe and Hasek have shown us in the past.

By flop do you mean Abby's stlye of flopping?

Yes.  It must be a European-thing that they teach goalies over there in that part of the world. LOL!

It's how guys play if they never went to goalie school. A goalie school will teach you about positioning and timing etc, but some guys just have the ability to stop the puck by any means necessary. Hasek, for example.

Whatever he's doing, goaltending school or not, is working.

In 6 games this season he's posted 2 shutouts, a 1.34 GAA and a .955%

Last night's game was his 5th shutout in only 19 AHL games putting him 3rd in all time Bulldogs shutouts.

If he keeps this up Danis may lose his starting spot with the Bulldogs.

Do the Canadiens own him, or does he belong to Edmonton?

I hope he's ours.

We drafted him in the 9th round, 271st overall, 2003. He's signed through next season.

There is no dought in any1 mind in the canadian organasation that this guy is very impressive. He started off shinning late last year for hamilton and his story has just impressed us game after game. I belive he is tied for our number 3 golie and this point with Danis and can soon very easily overtake him. Depth shart for our golies from my standards.

1.Huet ( SHowed he can start in the nhl last season)

2. Abie ( Starter, Has shining moments and not so moments)

3.Halak ( a Young Slovakian Golie who is simply outstanding in the Ahl)

4.Danis ( BAck up nhl golie? as he is aging his glimpse of even being a backup is up in the air.)

5.Price ( 1st round pick this season, projected as being a number 1 eventually)

6. Cristopher Hieno-Lunberg or wtv his name. ( Playing decent in Sweeden but he would have to come to play in the North American game to get a closer look at this guy.)

Certainly making a name for himself down there. 1.50 GAA and 0.949 Sv%. with 3 shutouts. Whoa. Pretty solid numbers.

Halak's unbelievable .952 SV% is far and away first in the AHL, as is his 1.44 GAA. He's been incredible. The 3 shutouts certainly help too. Our goaltending depth is just incredible.

Think he's NHL ready if Aebi get's dealt? I'm pretty sure Halak would be the call-up and Danis may even be pushed to AHL backup, as Cedrick Desjardins continues to impress.

Hasek failed goalie school.

"Hasek you smother the puck with your glove! Not your cage!"

"Dadadada datiz jast wat I doo!"

Tough to say Keith, we have a game tonight, considering Halak has only let in 1 goal in two tough games coach Lever should probably reward him in which case his play tonight will decide things, then again he can't ignore Danis and then things change....tough decision for Lever....personally I'd go with Halak as he is really hot right now......I hope you get to see him on Friday he is an exciting goaltender!!!

In my opinion..Halak has been ripped off by the media here in Hamilton. The other night he was given 3rd star. He had a shutout for that game...he played a flawless game and he should of been 1st star. The very next game Halak only allowed 1 goal. However he did better in the star rating. They gave him a 2nd star.

It makes one think how are stars given out for games. You get a shutout and get a 3rd star....you let one in and they give you a 2nd star. Go figure.

Games can change, I don't know nothing about those games. But if a goalie were to make 18 SVs and get the shutout, its not really that impressive. It's great.. but it doesnt really deserve the first start if someone else in the game got 3PTS. He does warrant a 2nd or 3rd star. And if a goalie were to let in a goal and make.. 41 SVs.. that's a bit more impressive than an 18 save shutout.
