    Hawks sign Huet

    No news yet on the Campbell/Hossa front, but for the time being:

    The Chicago Blackhawks have signed goaltender Cristobal Huet to a contract.

    Huet, 32, finished with a 32-14-6 record and 2.32 goals-against average this season with a .920 save percentage between Washington and Montreal.

    The Canadiens dealt Huet to the Capitals in February, electing to go with Carey Price as their starting goaltender. Huet was in the final year of a two-year contract and became an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

    Huet has played 183 career games in the NHL. He posted a 83-61-24 record, a 2.43 goals against average and a .918 save percentage.
    He posted an 11-2 record in 13 career games with the Capitals, with a 1.63 goals against average and a .936 save percentage.

    Details to follow.

    That is a pretty good signing for us as he is a solid goaltender. My only question is does that mean we have a deal in place to move Khabibulin?

    you would have to think that, since we have like what $13mill or something now in goalkeepers?????? So I was reading on the blackhawks board that they may trade Bulin to Ottawa and then go for both Hossa and Campbell.

    I'm curious to see what happens. I wonder what Ottawa would be willing to part with to get Khabibulin? I would think that we might just be moving him as kind of a salary dump, but who knows.

    I was thinking the same thing. According to TFP, Hossa and Campbell are both nearing their decisions:

    4:10pm ET - As you can tell by the activity on the site, it's been a crazy hour. Latest has Avs signing Tucker, Canucks signing Backes to offer sheet, etc... still waiting on word from Campbell and Hossa, as both could be nearing a decision.

    Maybe Khabi could be getting moved to make room?

    I agree but now I'm just really curious to see what we get in return for him. It is very possible that it would just be a salary dump move but I think we could at least pull a 2nd round pick if thats what we got for Bourque from Calgary.

    I just talked to my brother and he said that they were saying on the radio that the deal would be Khabibulin for Fischer which would be a pretty good deal for us. He is a very good two way hockey player.

    TFP is saying Khabibulin will be traded to the Kings.

    "TFP has learned that the Chicago Blackhawks have signed unrestricted free agent goalie Cristobal Huet to a four-year contract worth over $5 million per season. "

    From TFP (again):

    4:22pm ET - Word is Hawks close to trading Nikolai Khabibulin to Kings, meanwhile Kings just got Denis Gauthier from Philly.

    I would like to have Hossa but it wouldnt be the end of the world if we don't sign him. We can make a smaller splash possibly if we don't sign him.

    Exactly. Id love to have him too but if we can sign Campell and trade Khabby now then Id be real content. Too bad we couldnt snatch a guy like Corey Perry away from the Ducks.

    Lalime to the Sabres is official (not that it matters)

    Looks like a season with Huet and Crawford....I love it!
