I certianly hope he has another stellar season, it'd be a shame if those idiots on TSN were right about him, if they were Bob Macenzie's head would swell so much he'd fall over from the weight.

I think Huet will be fine. The only thing that worries me is his tendency to give up one soft goal per game. Especially on a low-scoring team like ours, we can't afford to allow even one soft goal. And it's demoralizing to boot. I think it's more an issue of concentration than anything else: Huet has to learn to stay focused for 60 minutes. If he gets beaten, fine, no shame in that, but let's not be gift-wrapping goals for our opposition.

I agree completely. We can't afford the occasional soft one

Well, the first goal he let in vs. the Sabres was pretty ugly. He should of used his glove to stop it instead of using his chest/stomach... It wouldn't of bounced up like that and flopped in.

Exactly! Why do you think he's not playing well? Teams and players both know his weakness. Why must he always go down to soon!? :x

That first goal was actaully going at his head and he put his glove up to block it and it took a weird bounce so he got in position for a rebound like it should but it wsa fluky and went behind him...thats not areflection on how he played that is a lucky goal that just happens in hockey...and it rightfully threw him off as getting a puck to the head causes a different reaction than one to the chest

The game on Thursday. Habs are in Boston. Last year Huet owned Boston. I think he should get the start. No pressure, They are on the road...Good chance for Huet todrop the funk and return to form.

Go Habs Go....Huet will come around.

Huet's the next Hasek.

Late bloomer

Slow starter

Same number (39)

Interesting little note here. Check out how he started last season; he started his season with a win, a shootout loss, and two regulation losses, allowing 15 goals over the stretch.

This here he's got one win, two shootout losses, and a regulation loss, giving up 13 goals over the stretch.

All hope is not lost yet Habs fans. There's plenty of season ahead for improvement, we can't always expect players to come out of the gate on top of their game. For all we know, Huet could click his game into overdrive like he did after a rough start last year. Don't give up yet!

Hands down... he's good when he is on his game, but he will never ever be a next Hasek, neither will Abby or Danis.

Yes but I'm saying he's the kind of goalie Hasek is. Late starter. Want proof?

Hasek:

1993-94

October: 191.05 minutes 0-3-0 10 goals allowed on 96 shots 3.14 GAA 0.896 Save % 0 shutouts

1995-96:

October: 3-6-0 538 minutes 298 shots 25 goals 0.916 Save % 2.79 GAA

1996-97:

October: 5-5-0 600 minutes 301 shots 27 goals 0.910 Save % 2.70 GAA

1997-98:

October: 3-6-2 650 minutes 341 shots 36 goals 0.894 Save % 3.32 GAA

November: 3-4-1 505.23 minutes 246 shots 24 goals 0.902 Save % 2.85 GAA 1 shutout

1999-00

October: 1-4-1 471.6 minutes 243 shots 24 goals 0.901 save % 3.05 GAA

2000-01:

October: 3-4-1 500.5 minutes 223 shots 21 goals 0.906 save % 2.89 GAA

And this year his save % so far is 0.900 or even lower. So patience my firends... Huet's not the only slow starter.

I have faith in Huet....his previous year stats aren't that bad either, so i'm sure he'll capitalize on his chance...

and is this the first time this year Huet is playin 2 games in a row?

This could make a difference. Hopefully he rips it up and takes Saturday's game to, cuz i'ma be there! SICK!

not saying im giving up on Huet, but we have to admit at this point Abby has been the better goalie.

That goes without saying. But if Huet can turn his game on, he's technically the better goalie.
