kovalev47 Posted July 9, 2008 Report Share Posted July 9, 2008 I know everyone is entitled to their opinion and I'm not bashing you in any way but you gotta be kidding me...first off tanguay is better than ryder jus watch this season, Huet...well theres no way we would pay him the kinda money he got and personally I think not only is price better than huet but halak is close to being as good as he is and I'd rather have a young goalie who is paid about 4.5 million less than have an overpriced goalie who won't get the starts he wants...On streit although he is a loss I don't think it will hurt us...We have better d-man than him and he wouldn't fit in there or in our forward lines and you can't keep a 4 million dollar player in the press box substituting games...Yes he got a lot of points but he played on the 1st power play unit. We have sergei kostitsyn that can play the point on the pp and If he plays there this year watch out because you and everyone will be extremely surprised how well this guy plays the point...I watched him in london and not only does he have great playmaking skills and a hell of a slap shot, but he is more realiable defensively than streit...He can make huge open ice hits and I've witnessed plenty of hip checks by the kid that make me jump because the guys he hits are twice his size I also recall on a 5 on 3 penalty kill the knights(london) would put him out there on defense! this guy is a hell of a penalty killer and scored many 5 on 3 short handed goals...I remember watching a game in overtime when they were down 2 man and sergei blocked a shot skated up the ice, deked out 3 players and scored the gamewinning goal! And saying that tampa made all the right moves come on...they brought in all forwards when what they really needed was defensemen and a #1 goalie...so watch this year as they score 4-5 goals a game but also allow the same against them....And we are in NO way going to end up like the leafs....we have one of the youngest and best teams in the league and we have more prospects than we know what to do with! Again I'm sorry if you think I'm bashing you, I'm not..I'm just stating my opinion Price and Halak are not close to as good as Huet yet. We saw what happened with a lack of experience in goal. Of course Huet would be too expensive with the Habs since management refused to give him a full starter's role. Look at who Tanguay plays with versus who Ryder plays with. Ryder will pot 35-40 goals next season playing alongside PB or Savard. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
