Many Montreal hockey fans remain stunned, if not in shock, that veteran goaltender Cristobal Huet was moved to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday’s trade-deadline day for a second-round, 2009 draft pick. There he joins a less-than-overjoyed Olaf Kolzig in a very crowded Capitals net. Read more in today’s Washington Times.
Huet, beneath the cap of his new team, is interviewed on the CapsTV portal of the Capitals website.
In the meantime, the Canadiens dodged a goaltending bullet in their Wednesday practice when Jaroslav Halak was drilled in the knee by a shot. Halak finished the practice and said it’s just a bruise.
A bruise that surely is felt by every Canadiens fan who understands that their team will go only as far this season, and perhaps beyond, as Carey Price and Halak will carry them.
