Go Huet Go!!! You usually have rough starts. You'll pull through for the Habs because you're still the #1 goalie in my books!!

Note to Coach Carbs: Please God no, not the platoon system again this year. Let Huet play consistently!!!! I BEG OF YOU!!!!

Like last season, Huet will dictate his playing time. If he performs, he'll be the man... otherwise, be ready to see someone else being given the opportunity. It's only fair.

lol........anyone in particular you would like to see given the opportunity ? ;)

If the past two years are any indication then one or both of the rookies WILL get playing time

JL, I have every confidence in Huet, Halak, and Price (and it's not just because I'm a Habs fan, they're all amazing goalies). I just don't want to see our goalies play a couple games then sit out for a couple then on again then off again. Whomever is considered the #1 goalie should be played like the #1 goalie.

Me, personally, I think Huet deserves that chance. Huet would of gotten the Habs into the playoffs last year even with his injury during the second half of the season had he been played more earlier in the season. He EASILY would of one at least one more game.

Looking forward to a very good season if:

1) Huet stays healthy. Don't pull a muscle or whatever you did in that first game last year that kind of messed up your first month.

2) Huet stays healthy all season. No flu, no season ending injury's (While we understand why, he shouldnt of been back for that last game in Toronto)

3) Guy tells Cris that hes the man until he fumbles. None of this 2 on, 2 off *****. Let the man get in a rhythm and not look over his shoulder all season at who is gonna start. Bad enough hes got to watch the 5 guys in the opposing team, but he shouldnt have to worry about his own spot too.

4) Defense defense defense defense DEFENSE!!! How tired would anyone be if they are facing 30-40 shots every single game. Hopefully aquiring Roman will help shore up the defense and Cris or whoever is in net will not be facing so many shots every single game.

If these 4 things can be attained, this could be a great season for Cris and the Habs! With a possible post season and deep run into the playoffs.

This is the critical piece of the puzzle that I am looking for.

If the team has better defence then everything else will eventually follow.

Oh wow, I hope it's nothing serious.

If Huet is going to be tending to his ill wife and it is a serious illness we may see Price right off the bat.

Hopefully it's nothing too serious.

On another note: I think with adding Price to the roster it's going to add more intense pressure on Huet to play better to keep his starting position.

I think a talented back up goaltender is what Huet needs to perform on a more consistant basis.

It has been updated...good to hear, must not be too serious...

Huet misses practice, but will start on Wednesday

Posted by Kevin Mio @ 11:50 AM

Canadiens No. 1 goaltender Cristobal Huet was not at practice this morning as the team prepared for tomorrow night's season opener in Carolina. Apparently Huet's wife is ill.

However, Huet will make the trip to Carolina and start in goal against the Hurricanes tomorrow night.

Perhaps if Melanson can get Huet to practice with splints taped to his pads he might learn how to stay on his feet so he can actually see what's going on in front of him .Why does he have this tendancy to drop to his knees whenever an opposing player has the puck ?.........even before they have passed their own side of the center zone???

I'm not 100% sure that I'm pleased with the idea of bi-passing Halak but,it's critically necessary ,in my opinion,to get started with the task of replacing Huet with better abilities.I hate butterflies!!!!!

The days of Ken Dryden standup goalies is over, you don't play goal like that anymore unless you want to get shellshocked by these players who can bank one off the post at will. Huet made the all-star game last year and he dragged us into the playoffs the year before playing just the way he does, I say let him do whatever it takes to stop pucks, he does a darn good job for us.

The only standup left in the league is Brodeur, and he is a semi-standup at best still.

The feb/mar issue of Goalies World had an awesome review of Cris and his style and how he makes it work. And just like Link said, if that style brought the Habs to the playoffs in 2006, and still worked the magic in 2007 when he must of felt like he was facing a machine gun, with all the shots he was forced to defend, then it must be working.

If you can get that issue, get it. Its a good book. I have it polybagged and sitting on my desk here at work. Hes on the cover, with 99% of the magazine devoted to him

RDS and TSN are expecting Carey Price to be in the net for the first coupl games.... if he handles it well, they might just keep him in the net.

BG makes me feel like he wants Price as #1

I heard on a Toronto radio station today that Price staying in MTL had something to do with the Huet's wife being sick. I'm not sure how true this is or even if Huet's wife is sick, just wondering if anyone else heard anything.

http://www.habsinsideout.com has a story that Huet's wife is ill. It does go on to say the Huet will start game #1. Hopefully his wife gets well soon.
