He's from close to where I live, so I'm glad he stayed put...for selfish reasons.

But then again, I know nothing about a lot of the players outside of the Canucks, so it could be a good trade. I just hope that we make some good deals in the next half hour.
I really don't understand why a fan favourite who was consistent in his scoring was traded away for a player who has less points, less experience, and doesn't have much potential to get any better. At least a draft pick or two would have been nice.

Seems like a step backwards to me, and when a team is fighting for a playoff spot, it really is worrying and maybe points to problems in the locker room.

So it's happened not once, but twice with the Canadiens that a rookie goaltender won the Cup for them. It doesn't mean it's going to happen everytime. Moreover, comparing Price to Ken Dryden or even Patrick Roy at this stage of his career is a tad premature.

Awesome, well we didn't quite manage to heap ALL the pressure onto Price in the first half of the season...glad that's been fixed.

The pressure of the Montreal media and the fans and all the retard negativity that goes with being a big name in this city will either destroy Price's career, or he'll win us the Cup.

Sorry to leave you out, Patrick!

I think this was the famous save he made on Sandstrom in the '93 finals...but I could be wrong about that.

Comparing is premature, but it's a whole lot of fun.

Also, the Gainey-factor can't be overlooked--he's been involved in the careers of all three.

Well said. I briefly looked over Pettinger's stats and came to the same conclusions as you.

Very frustrating. As one of my co-workers said earlier, Pettinger is going to be the most hated Canuck for a while.

Hope the Habs enjoyed the playoff run while it lasted!
(well, they won't make it past the first round if they do qualify)

Huet for a second-round draft pick? Is this a joke?!? Hal Gill got more in exchange than Huet! Okay, Huet hasn't been fantastic these past few weeks but I personally think he's proved himself throughout the year.

Is Gainey still drunk from his big night on Saturday or somethin'??

Un-frickin'-believable.

Souray used to be my fave and they traded him, then Huet became my fave and they traded him. Anyone you'd like to see traded b/c I'll ensure he becomes my fave!

Souray wasn't traded, he signed with Edmonton as a free agent. The Laughs got more for Hal Gill, I think, because he's still under contract, while Huet is an unrestricted free agent.

Oops, sorry, yeah, forgot about Souray, he left last summer.

I've calmed down now. And so far tonight Carey Price is proving me wrong

But who knows how long that will last

Souray, Gill, and Huet...players either past their prime, or highly overrated. Just saying.

Pittsburgh were clearly the smartest team today for getting Hossa.

I dunno, I think Huet was def worth more than a second-round draft pick. And he, at least, has playoff experience.
If the Habs aren't thinking about going far this year , then perhaps it will to their benefit in the long-term.
My father, a Habs fanatic, seems to think they're making cap space in ordre to acquire Lecavalier...Apparently, he recently wrote up a list of teams he'd play for and Montreal was at the top.

Def. agree about Pittsburgh, they're the team to watch

I've never thought about that! Lecavalier could absolutely thrive in Montreal. If he's not the best player in the league right now, he's damn close. He really reminds me of Gretzky at times.

I know! It'd be so

I did some research and just found this from a few weeks ago:

If the Lightning let Lecavalier finish out his contract and let him become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 of 2009, speculation is that the Montreal Canadiens may offer him between $72-$75 million over seven years.

Good research! (I was actually wondering about the logistics of acquiring him as I was folding my laundry.) Imagine the amount of poutine he could buy with that kind of money. If Ryder was still around, I could see him and Lecavalier playing well together on a line.

They are scoring a lot tonight...I wonder if Atlanta is deflated after losing such a key player?
