This just recently RT by Canucks Army

Kevin Woodley ‏@KevinisInGoal
Huet tells L'Equipe talked w/ Kings + Canucks. No surprise on latter if/when trade Luongo. good history w/ Melanson: http://bit.ly/Oq3a7u


Not sure how I feel about this situation.
Maybe I just have a soft spot for Dan Ellis?

Sorry if this is already posted, didn't see it anywhere. Thought it's kinda interesting though. If/when we trade Lou, is the plan not to use Lack as backup?

Thoughts?

Lack's agent came out and said he thinks that Lack should get one more year in the AHL before being NHL ready in 2013.

No! No!

Don't want him.

We need YOUNGER players, and since thes "rumor" experts are saying we're after Arnot and Doan, we don't need another over-aged player!

For a reasonable price, I think Huet would be the perfect backup.

I think that would be a win-win for everyone. Lack gets an extra year in development, Schneider has an NHL veteran for a backup (either Luongo or Huet) just in case, and the Canucks get a pretty nice tandem. Then, if everything works out, we'll have a Schneider with a full NHL season under his belt, backed up by a pretty capable and ready Lack.

I can see it now. Boston vs Canucks. Huet in net. Brad Marchand on a breakaway, Huet charges at Marchand. Marchand does a front flip and lands on his head.

I don't see the problem in signing him for a year, maybe two at the most for a cheap price. Won't hurt out future since we're still gong to have Lack to go with, and the Canucks have a little safety net.

One year too much. He's a big question mark, what if Schneider actually gets hurt, then what?

This guy hasn't played in NHL for a while now and we're not even sure if he can compete.

If Schneider actually gets hurt, or worse just plain sucks, we're f**ked.(Assuming Luongo is gone.) None of the guys mentioned in this thread will help.

I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

The question about Huet was never about his talent. He just got grossly overpaid by an idiotic Blackhawks GM.

Besides, aren't you that idiot who feels the need to go into every single thread about Luongo and/or Schneider and state that Schneider will never be as good as Luongo? Why should your opinion on goaltending even matter?

Assuming we don't receive a backup goaltender in the Luongo trade, and assuming that the Kings don't receive a backup goaltender in the Bernier trade, it makes sense for both teams to look at every available UFA backup.

However, not many teams run a 3-goalie system on purpose.

TBH I think Ellis is a better goalie, but either way I think I'd rather try Lack out and sign one of these two in the season if it doesn't work.

yea, I am having a tough time with this one. Huet, I believe has some great backup potential but he is too old. That being said I would take Roloson as a backup on a 1 year deal in a heartbeat. And he is way to old! So go figure..

I wouldn't mind him, veteran backup. I hope he still has some game. And to people who worry about Schneider possible getting hurt: generally in the NHL, if your starting goalie gets seriously injured, your team is seriously in deep. Our team has just been so darn lucky.

hey man, I'm entitled to my opinions.

I'm split but, if I had to side with one opinion, it'd be yours. Lou has achieved a lot in his career, and I can't see Schneids matching those accomplishments, as fine a goalie as he projects to be.

On Huet, I'd love him to sign here - he's the NHL player closest to my actual surname, so I always choose him as my NHL 13 announcing name :lol:

Heh, except the Leafs. They're so deep in goaltending they don't need Luongo.

Another good low risk high reward scenario if everything works out. I' rather have Huet as a backup than an unproven that may be called on as the starter due to injuries.
