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!


So what's your genius solution to this dilemma then?

RIP LB RR PD

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...

No! He's way too old!

You have no clue what you're talking about, do you?

We're talking about a backup for Schneider.

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

He's a vet back-up, I'd rather go with a vet than a inexperienced AHLer.

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?


Hey! Why should your opinion on goaltending matter? Because you have a picture of Luongo in your sig?

I wouldn't be opposed to Huet but there are better alternatives.........like DOMINEK HASEK!!! :frantic:
But seriously Huet wouldn't be too shabby.

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.


What if Lundqvist gets hurt? It's the same situation, the Rangers are screwed.

That's a good sign if it happens. Lack will be definitely ready in the 2013/14 season, and will be a great back up for Schneids. It's Cory's first season as a starter, I wouldn't be really comfortable having a goalie who has never played and NHL game as his back up. With Huet, that's a different story.

Hasek/Rolosen/Ellis (Ellis being the better)> Huet

IMO I don't think Huet had any more than 2 years of "great goaltending". He had his moments, but I think he's done in the NHL, even at a back-up level.

The Huet of all trades.

If he's tight with Melanson it might work out. I'd like to see Lack have a real shot though - SIGN HIM GILLIS

I understand what your saying but you need a capable back up. A Veteran for a year to give Lack a chance to developed more for another year and another voice Cory can go too. Look what happen to Price in his rookie year! Montreal was doing well and first overall in the east then they brought up Halak and traded Huet. Imo That was one of the biggest mistakes Montreal could do to two rookie goaltenders when they had no Veteran Presence. And 36 isn't that old. Its not like Vancouver going to sign him for 4 years. Mind I'll probably drop dead if they did..lol

Front-loaded cap hit of $1.00, eh? I see you have absolutely no idea what front-loaded means, and you seem to be just as stupid as that rape suspect in your avatar.

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:


This much is true, no gold medal for the Schneiderman as he's American :bigblush:

At this point I don't see MG giving Huet a deal. More likely, he'll bring in 2-3 goalies on PTO's (including Lack) to challenge for the spot and give the best one the job. Much like last year with Legace.

All 3 players play different positions, and would play different roles. There's nothing wrong in having some veterans in their 30's at different positions in different roles.

Huet is a solid veteran backup who won't be a threat to Cory, IF he came here.

The other reason the Canucks may not have signed him, is they could still be bringing Luongo back. It's unlikely, but possible still.

I'd be ok with Huet on a 1 year contract, while waiting for Lack the following season.

I wouldn't mind him here for a year backing up Cory Schneider. Then a year later Eddie Lack can back-up Schneider.

Explain to me how, without making several assumptions that are in no way referenced in his post, $10 million averaged over 100 annual increments could ever result in a $1.00 cap hit. I guess I should have taken whichever f***ed up math classes you've aced in your lifetime in lieu of all the calculus and advanced statistics courses I've taken in mine.

Hopefully, out of his desire to bring Lu back to South Beach, Tallon would pressure Theodore enough to get him to agree to being traded to Vancouver. I would be so much happier with Jose as the #1B, so he would be able to step in and handle more of a load in case Schneider-man falters. Even though he's 35, he (Jose) would still fit as a #1 in the league and I would much rather have him on the team than Clemmensen, Ellis or in this case Huet.

Huet had a couple of sub-par seasons with the Hawks, but I don't think that really indicates that he is a poor goalie now. People have talked about us getting younger and I agree, but in net is not always where you want to get younger. Schneider has developed, but would still benefit from a veteran goalie to back him up. Additionally, if Schneider ever did get hurt - especially in the playoffs - I'd feel far more comfortable having an experienced goalie in net rather than a younger nobody. This is just a stop-gap until Lack moves into the backup role next year.

I say sign Huet for 2 years at 2 million. (1 per). It isn't like teams are chomping at the bit to sign him so we might get him for cheap. 2 years provides us with security in case Lack isn't ready to go next season as the backup.

I don't know if a disgruntled player, who doesn't want to be here but was forced into the move anyway, would be the best option to go with.

I'd be happy with Huet after we trade Luongo. 1 year @ $1 million?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

He's a pretty solid goaltender. I wouldn't mind.

As others have said though I feel that Ellis is a better goalie(And he wants the job) or Theodore in the Luongo trade(Doubtful but hopefully) .

But what if the sedins get hurt as well? Who will do most of the scoring!

or Hamhuis. Who does the defending!

Your avatars just keep getting more spooky all the time. And yeah, it would be a very good idea to have a vetern prescence to back up Ze Schnieds.
