Deja "but"

Last year, Capitals goalie Cristobal Huet was caught looking the wrong way with a puck loose in front of him, and his season was snuffed out as Joffrey Lupul stuffed it behind Huet in overtime to send the Philadelphia Flyers onward to the second round of the 2007-2008 playoffs.

Last night, it happened again. After having made a spectacluar right pad save on Johan Franzen while lying on his stomach late in regulation to keep Chicago's season alive, Huet got caught looking the wrong way in overtime once more, this time at his right post with Tomas Holmstrom on the doorstep. But the puck was on Darren Helm's stick on the other side of the crease, and Helm only had to bunt the puck the last few inches to seal Detroit's 2-1 overtime series-clinching win.

That post title is unforgivable.

I am more than happy to see Huet, who left us in a hurry and alurch last season fail. That said looking at the picture isn't the real question - What is Burrish doing right now other than watching the game from a really good seat?

Hawks were doomed when Habby went down....just be glad GMGM saved $1M last season by not resigning Huet and ~5M in 2010-2011 by not going for the three year deal he wanted.
