After the drubbing that the Capitals gave the Canadiens in game 1 of their playoff series, in which Halak was clearly out of his depth (as so many have predicted here) - can the re-emergence of Carey Price be far off. After all, he only stopped 10 more shots then Theodore while facing the NHL's #1 offense.

When will Halak be offered to the Flyers (who need a goalie) in return for a 5th round pick and a bucket of pucks and tape?

As any independent viewer of Game 1 would agree - Halak is definitely not NHL calibre and is not fit to wear the CH. The Habs are going nowhere fast with him between the pipes...when will management wake up and make the change?

After all, every call for Halak's removal from the BR has come from 'expert' opinions on the subject and are, without a doubt, of the highest quality.

Jacques Martin, please do us all a favour before we get a repeat performance of Game 1 from Jaroslav Halak and pull him from the next start. I would hate to subject the Canadiens faithful to another performance like that from Halak...something MUST BE DONE!!!
