Key line: "statistically." Statistics don't tell the whole story, you should know that. Anyone who knows anythings about hockey knows the importance of the goalie has deteriorated in the last couple years and anyone who watched the Habs in the playoffs know that they played well AS A TEAM. MTL allowed the shots they wanted to allow but Halak was very good. If you want to talk about statistics, why don't you compare how many shots the MTL players blocked. One game they had 41 blocked shots and I'm not even sure that was their most.


This is fair.


OMG. Nevermind just continue to contradict yourself depending upon who is responding.

No contradiction or bias here. I have no problem with you. DevilDan I don't think I've even agreed with often. But the argument that Halak did make a difference is true...he just wasn't vital. But what I was more referring to with "This is fair" was his assertion that A. Carey Price will actually be detrimental to the team and that's the real issue here. And B. Whatever the case, MTL made a bad decision because they could have gotten more for Halak. Which I don't know if that is true but is certainly a legit opinion.

No, Halak was extremely strong for the Habs and if he were not playing out of his mind, they would've been out early. He didn't have two bad games in a row til Philthy. He made the pourous Hab D look ok by making 40 saves over and over.

I just think that with supposedly San Jose, Tampa, and Philly in the running, I'm surprised that's the package that won out. I figured they'd wait till draft day maybe and see if someone panics.

BTW, I want Price to do well. I think he's a great goalie, but this trade really really puts the pressure on him.

lol at the Montreal defense being terrific when they were allowing forty shots a game. Maybe it was a fluke run from Halak but geez, the Habs already got burned trading Huet after he had some success there, now they're gonna do it again for a kid who's already proven he can't handle Montreal? It's going to be even worse for Price now that they trade Halak after this magical run.
