      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Canucks kicking tires on Huet

Recommended Posts

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.

ahahaha.

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.

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.

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!

It's idiotic to complain about the guy's age, as long as he is capable of playing at the NHL level. Old goalies are often backups because they can't handle the load of being a starter any longer, but their experience makes them great backups.

I'm torn between wanting an experienced guy, like Huet, or giving Lack a chance because I feel he deserves it...

I wonder if he still has it in him to be a capable NHL goalie.

Maybe give him a tryout contract, and if he performs well in camp and preseason we could give him a try.

If he still has his game, he would be great.

Probs just a backup plan if we don't get a goaltender in return for Luongo. Just like Arnott is a backup in case they don't get a 3rd line center in return for Luongo, which is determined on whether we sign Doan or not.

Exciting stuff

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?
