Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Not too sure what to think of that situation right now. Considering the money they're paying Huet and how well he played during his last start I was very surprised to see him not get the start tonight.
Might be a case where Savard preffered Huet but Quenville like Buhlin more.
Pretty hard to own either right now but even harder to drop either right now.

Khabby got a shutout tonight....
Before the game Huet was 1-1-1 with 2.60 and .907%. Khabby was at 1-1-1 with 2.62 and .914.
I'd imagine they'd probably continue to split time for a while. Personally, I think Khabibulin is the better net-minder when he decides he wants to be. And before the trade deadline, of them has to go somewhere, especially when you consider how high the hopes are in Chicago for a playoff berth this year. I can't see them keeping both, plus they got Corey Crawford, and apparently Antii Niemi (did I spell that correctly?) waiting in the wings. So, to be specific, I'd say starter: no, working towards it: yes.
