Hip, Hip, Huet!!

I was paying close attention to the Thrashers vs Caps hockey game last night. No, I am not a fan of either team. The reason for my undivided interest in this matchup was because if Atlanta lost this game, the Montreal Canadiens (my favourite team) would clinch a spot in the playoffs. Well it was close. At one point late in the second, the Caps fell behind 4-3 but they roared back in the third to win it 6-4. Thank you Washington!

This also has to make my young nephew Hayden very happy also as he is also a big Habs fan. He even has a poseable Jose Theodore action figure that I gave to him for Christmas. When Jose didn't play very well this season, the Habs traded him to Colorado Avalanche and made Cristobal Huet their #1 goalie. They haven't looked back since. I don't know how my nephew took the news when Jose got traded but hopefully he is not trying to trade his action figure on the school playground for a handful of gummi worms. You better hang on to him Hayden.

In the meantime I will try to find a Cristobal Huet action figure although I get the feeling there are not too many on the market right now. So for now Hayden we can watch the playoffs on TV and give 3 cheers for Cristobal... Hip, Hip Huet!

  1. I will never trade Jose Theodore! I wasn't sad about the trade as Montreal always breaks in great goalies! I will anxiously await the first Habs playoff game! Habs vs ?? My predictions are either Calgary/or Detroit for the Western Conference and Ottawa/Montreal for the East! My heart goes to the Habs! I think they did something good to get rid of Theodore because that saved them alot of trouble! They started blowing away the other teams with Huet! So I agree Hip, Hip, Huet!!!
